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.

Sunday Update for 9 Pentecost

July 25, 2021

The Relationship Between RAIN

and FEEDING THE 5000

on this Rainy Sunday Morning

“I don’t think the way you think.
    The way you work isn’t the way I work.”
        God’s Decree.
“For as the sky soars high above earth,
    so the way I work surpasses the way you work,
    and the way I think is beyond the way you think.
Just as rain and snow descend from the skies
    and don’t go back until they’ve watered the earth,
Doing their work of making things grow and blossom,
    producing seed for farmers and food for the hungry,
So will the words that come out of my mouth
    not come back empty-handed.
They’ll do the work I sent them to do,
    they’ll complete the assignment I gave them. 

(Isaiah 55:8-11)

Weekend Update for 9 Pentecost

July 25, 2021

Baptism and Banquet

Tomorrow’s worship begins with a Baptism.  Isla Veronica Dikmanis, almost 14-month old daughter of Drs. Erin (Kinney) & Andris of The Woodlands, TX will enjoy the Holy Bath as she’s claimed by the blessed Holy Trinity as a daughter for all times and places.  Word and Water in abundance!

The appointed scriptures remind us of the superabundance of God’s provision.  Manna, quails and water in the wilderness. A donor comes to Elisha with a thank-offering. Elisha, in response, tells him to feed 100 men with 20 barley loaves and some grain. What are they among so many? Wine at Cana in Galilee. Best served last.  Seeing the crowd, Jesus asks Philip,” Where will we buy bread to for these people to eat?   Andrew points out a lad has five barley loaves and two fish.  5000 eat their fill. No one even bothers to tally up the women, children, and pets present!

 So, if the Lord is a superabundant Giver, why is the human family so stingy?  Why did so many of us at the start of the pandemic horde toilet tissue and Clorox wipes? Why are there food insecure in our own community?

 Does the Lord really make a difference in how we live?  Why are food pantries and soup kitchens essential ministries?  What kind of miracle would it take for there to be no need of pantries, soup kitchens, clothing lockers, and shelters? 

Jesus is able to do amazing things!  He does them in and through His people who remember there are folks in every community waiting and wanting to be fed.          

David Leitner completes a month of service as our Assisting Minister, but tomorrow he’s also on the schedule of Lectors!  Double duty!  Cantor is Isla’s grandpa, Steve Kinney

Soli Deo Gloria!
