Graduate Connection
 
Every year a great group of Our Savior's young men and women graduate from high school and move on to the next chapter of their lives. We at Our Savior's want to remember them as they start out by connecting with them via cards, texts, etc. Also, a couple times during the year care packages are sent. If you would like to be one of those people who connects with one of our newest graduates, we would love to have you do so. There will be a gathering of these "connectors" on Monday, Sept 9, at 7:00 pm in the Narthex (outside the sanctuary) to get us all organized for this new year. Please join us if you can. Or, let the church office know if you can't make that meeting but are interested.
