Welcome to Our Savior’s!
Announcements for Sunday, December 23, 2018
Our Savior’s Call Committee — The Board will be assembling a broadly representative team of people who love the Lord, love Our Savior’s, and can work collaboratively in a group. The Call Committee will have training and orientation, and on-going support from the Synod office. Serving on the Call Committee will take a significant amount of time over several months. The Call Committee sets its own schedule, but individual members must be willing to give this high priority on their personal calendar. If this sounds like something that calls to you, please tell us a little more. If interested in serving, please pick-up a form on the Welcome Desk. Completed forms are due in the church office by December 30, 2018.
A driver is needed for a member who lives at Boutwell’s and needs a ride to the 8:00 am service starting December 30. If you are available and interested, please contact our Parish Nurse, Stacy Meyer, at email@example.com or at 651-439-5704, ext. 109.
New Member Orientation — January 6! Interested in becoming a member at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church? There will be a New Member Orientation on Sunday, January 6, at 10:30 am. Orientation is a time for us to share information about what it means to be a member of Our Savior’s and for you to ask any questions you have of us. If you would like to join but cannot attend on this date, please talk to Pastor Christine to schedule a different time. New Member Introduction will be Sunday, January 13 at both services. Note that membership gives you the privilege of voting at the next annual meeting scheduled for Sunday, January 20.

Guatemala Anyone? Our Savior’s will be traveling to Guatemala in June of 2019 to visit our companions in Zaculeu and would love to have you join with others for this opportunity. There will be an information meeting about this trip on Monday, January 7, at 7:00 pm in the choir room at Our Savior’s. This will be a good time to learn what all is involved with such a trip and a time to ask questions. We hope you will join us. If you are unable to attend but are interested, talk with Sandy Fabio or Becky Maier to make sure you have the information.

Thanks to all who put their coins in the gratitude containers over the last year. Because of you $850 will be sent to Lutheran Disaster Response to be used to assist the many people around the United States who have been affected by the many disasters that have occurred. Gratitude has been proven time and time again to make us feel happier and less stressed – and even sleep better. We are grateful for you! The gratitude containers will again be handed out in February.
NOTICE: The church building and offices will be closed on December 25 & 26.
