Welcome 

Worship

   There's a place for everyone at Our Savior to be involved and make new friends through small group ministries, fellowship events, and committees for the congregation's life and mission.  Membership is voluntary and personal.

   Persons join when they express the desire to affiliate.  Adults may join formally the congregation by either a letter of membership transfer from another Christian congregation or by adult Confirmation.

   The sacrament of Holy Communion is celebrated with this understanding: that the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ are truly present in, with, and under the bread and wine; and, that the penitent receive the full forgiveness of all their sins. All baptized Christians who, in good conscience, can receive with this understanding are invited to partake.

   Baptisms and weddings are conducted as needed. A church wedding requires a couple to spend a period of time preparing for marriage in consultation with the pastor.

   An elevator and access ramp are available for entering and exiting the building. Refreshments are usually served after worship on Sunday. In warmer weather, the church is air-conditioned for your comfort.

Weekend Update for 4 Pentecost

June 20, 2021

Anchors Aweigh

A fleet of boats cross the Sea of Galilee. Windstorm arises and waves beat against the boats.  The boat Jesus is in starts to swamp.  Asleep in the stern, disciples wake the Lord  up.  “Teacher, don’t you care…?”  Of course, He cares!  He rebukes the wind and the waves.  There’s dead calm.  This is one reason why you always want the Lord in your boat! 

 We welcome tomorrow the Reverend Mr. Ronald Klose as our guest presiding minister.  As a retired U.S. Navy Reserve chaplain, he has some ships in a storm stories to tell as part of his testimony to the Lord.

This week’s Agnusday strip relates to tomorrow’s Second Lesson, a reading from St. Paul’s second epistle to the Christian community in Corinth which reads, in part,

We are putting no obstacle in anyone’s way, so that no fault may be found with our ministry, 4but as servants of God we have commended ourselves in every way: through great endurance, in afflictions, hardships, calamities, 5beatings, imprisonments, riots, labors, sleepless nights, hunger; 6by purity, knowledge, patience, kindness, holiness of spirit, genuine love, 7truthful speech, and the power of God; with the weapons of righteousness for the right hand and for the left; 8in honor and dishonor, in ill repute and good repute.

          As we also celebrate Father’s Day, Janice Crawford is the Assisting Minister and Bill Gordon the Lector.  Diana Truss makes her debut as Cantor assisted by Pia Haselbach.  They’ll be singing, “Eternal Father, Strong to Save,” the Navy hymn, a prayer-hymn for those in peril on the sea.                 

NYS Department of Health COVID Safety Protocols

Until there’s greater clarification about amending protocols for funerals and religious organizations, the Bishop recommends congregations unsure of everyone’s vaccination status and congregations with children under the age of 12 should continue following the safety protocols of masks, safe distancing and no singing. 

Soli Deo Gloria!
