A Day for Making Comfort!
Saturday, January 26, between 9 am - 3 pm women from around the Saint Paul Area Synod gather at Our Savior's for the purpose of providing comforters to as many people in need as is possible. Many quilts are completed that day as many hands make light work. No special skill is needed and the fellowship and the outcome are top notch. It is not necessary to stay the whole day - just come for as long as you can. If you will be there over the lunch time, bring your own lunch. Join us!
Women's Spring Retreat
Wishing you could sneak away for a relaxing time in the mountains? We've got the perfect plan! Cozy Mountain Lodge is a relaxing mountain lodge themed retreat the women of our church are doing together. It includes worship, Bible study, and time for laughter as well as time for quiet reflection.  
The dates are April 26 and 27, beginning with dinner on Friday evening and finishing by 4:00 pm on Saturday. The cost is $110 for a double room and $130 for a single room. (Note: there are a limited number of single rooms.)  The cost includes 3 delicious meals, comfortable lodging, and lots of fun with refreshing activities including games, hiking trails, and pool/sauna. We will be at the truly beautiful Mt Olivet Retreat Center in Farmington, MN.  
Registration forms are on the women's bulletin board across from the office. A $25 deposit is requested with your registration. Forms and money can be placed in the women's box in the office or left in the church office. We hope you will join us!

Card Recycling
Card Recycling News: Though we have enjoyed spending time repurposing used greeting cards, the card recycling women have decided to disband. The card stands will remain available until our supply has been purchased and will then be removed. The close out pricing for cards is now 3 for $1.00. Thank you for your contributions and business throughout the years.
