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.

Happy Mother’s Day!  Happy 6 Easter!

mothers-day-message-1

Christ is risen!  So are many moms in the Lord! 

Today we’ll be singing “Now Thank We All Our God.”   “Who from our mothers’ arms has blest us on our way with countless gifts of love, and still is ours today!  Today we’ll celebrate with Aaron Hernandez and his family as he confirms his faith.  Today we heed the Lord’s call “to love one another as I have loved you.”

Weekend Update for 6 Easter

The Gospel Challenge

          “No one has greater love than this, to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.  You are My friends if you do what I command you.” 

comic         

What a love-challenge: to die. It’s not your typical Barry White kind of love!  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2zfxZRBm3EY.  It’s love willing to die.  Not for your mother, your spouse, not for your children or grandchildren, but for a fellow Christian. For whom in the church family would you be willing to lay down your life?  Marvin? Federico? Marianne? Bishop Egensteiner?  Mother Gladys? John Litke?

 Faith without good works is a dead faith.  Spirit-given gratitude for the Lord laying down His life for us leads us to give ourselves away for others.  On a recent visit with Gunter Georgi, I asked if he gets mail from the church family.  As I off-handedly asked, I remembered I hadn’t sent a card/note since Easter.  Hmm…  Makes me think of the ‘60’s folk song, “And They’ll Know We Are Christians By Our Love.”  Pressing questions:  do they know?  Will they know?         

Tomorrow’s our nation-wide day of thanking the Lord for our mothers and for all Godly women who are/were influential in our faith development.  In our prayers we’ll remember those for whom Mother’s Day is a challenge: those missing their moms, grieving mothers, those grieving because they cannot be mothers, and those never having known a loving mother.

Additionally, during tomorrow’s service 8th grader Aaron Hernandez will confirm his faith.  Our safe distancing practice is having one Confirmand at a time.

Steve Kinney is your Cantor.  Linda Polizzi your Assisting Minister. Elaine Ajello your Lector.

            Soli Deo Gloria!
