"Summer Update "

Dear Members & Friends of Our Savior's Lutheran Church,
Last Sunday we officially began our Summer worship schedule at 8:00 am and 9:30 am. I look forward to seeing you in worship as often as your schedule allows this Summer.

If you are away at cabins or campgrounds or other vacation spots, I encourage you to find a place of worship to attend. It's important to stay connected to a community of faith, even throughout the Summer. I also encourage you to continue your financial giving to Our Savior's throughout this Summer in order for our income and expenses to align. You can mail in your offerings or sign up for the Simply Giving automated giving program through the church office.
We are also excited for the many Summer Children's and Youth ministry opportunities that are beginning. Please keep Chad, Darla, our volunteers, and all of our children, youth, and their families in your prayers as God shows up to them in fun and meaningful ways this Summer.
We have much to be thankful for at Our Savior's! I am thankful you are a part of it!
Come and see!
