E Bulletin
Christ Our Savior Lutheran Church

This weekend COS is worshiping both online and in-person.     

Pentecost
Christ Our Savior Lutheran Church's worship this weekend is about Pentecost, the coming of the Holy Spirit.  The Scriptures are Acts 2:1-21, Joel 2:28-29; John 16:5-11.  The sermon will be about the Church's Essential Business.   

There are several ways to worship this weekend.  The online option is linked below.  If you click on it at 8:30 am, you will be able to participate in the livestream of that service.  After the live broadcast is over (and a few minutes of processing and posting) the link will stream the service anytime you click it.  You can also access the online service directly on the  COS YouTube channel .
   
In-person options return to COS this weekend too.   Attendance at the indoor services (6:30 pm Thursday, 8:30 am & 10:00 am Sunday) is limited to 25% of the seating capacity.  The outdoor service on Sunday at 11:15 am has plenty of room to spread out.  Bring your own lawn chairs or blankets. If you have not done so already, please read COS Re-Open: In-Person Worship Details prior to attending.
