Co-operative Senior Living
 
Ecumen is beginning the sales process for the new 60 unit co-operative (called Zvago Stillwater) to be built next door to Our Savior's. There will be an informational meeting on June 28th at 10 am in the sanctuary. The informational meeting will be approximately 45 minutes and will outline the project specifics of the Zvago Cooperative at Stillwater; including floor plans, pricing, lifestyle benefits, amenities and more. Reservations will be taken after the presentation is completed. Any questions, contact Joel Frost or 651-373-5920.
Women's Bible Study in the Park
 
Bible Study in the Park - All women are invited to the first Bible Study in the Park this summer which will be held Thursday, July 5, at 9:30 am at Valley View Park. A continental breakfast will be served. Chad Larson will lead our study "The Practices of Prayer."  Jesus taught us how to pray
by way of the Lord's Prayer. But both in Scripture and in the Christian tradition, people of faith have developed a wide variety of ways to come before God. In this session, we'll look at different ways to pray, what each might offer and how knowing an array of prayer styles can enrich our
devotional life. Bring a friend and join us!
Walk for Your Health! 
 
The Health and Caring Ministry Team is hosting 3 group walks this summer. They will be held on the 4th Monday of June, July and August. The first one will be on June 25 from 6:30 -7:30 pm. We will gather at the Browns Creek Trail head on Neal Avenue. You can walk at any pace and the walk will only be cancelled in case of lightning. We hope you take this opportunity to get some exercise and connect with other people. For more information, contact Sue Hedlund or Stacy Meyer.  
Mark Your Calendar! 

 
Our Savior's will again have a float for the Lumberjack Days Parade taking place on July 22 . We're seeking participants to bring candy, help build the float, ride along on the float, or walk and pass out candy during
t he parade. Participants will each receive a new Our Savior's t-shirt to wear during the parade. Mark your calendars and sign up NOW or at the OSLC Welcome Desk.
