WELCOME to worship in the church of Our Saviour. We hope that you find the Sacred Spirit, feel blessed, create peace, and practice compassion through the love of God and His saving grace. We extend the hand of friendship so that we can connect with you, for you are so valuable to the Lord and very precious in His sight.

A suggested prayer upon entering the church: Gracious Father, who has lifted us from the depth of sin by the love of Jesus: Unite us in our affirmations of faith; that we may use our convictions to speak in a united voice, giving honor to your great name. We pray through Christ our Lord. Amen.

LCOS AND RLC JOINT SERVICES—We will continue to have joint services on the last Sunday of the month. Please wear your lanyards as we continue to get to know each other. If you did not pick up your lanyard INITIALLY, please contact the LCOS office.
BOTH CHURCHES’ SCHEDULE OF EVENTS—During the Pause Period for the Lutheran Church of the Reformation as they interact with LCOS, we ask that both congregations communicate with the LCOS Office for any events/activities that are held at the church. The office will maintain the schedule of events to avoid any conflicts in scheduling. We appreciate everyone’s cooperation in welcoming ELCR (aka RLC). May we share God’s love!
QUESTION BOX—Please continue to submit questions in the box in the Narthex. The Task Force will review, discuss your questions/concerns and reply to the congregation.

up a schedule (we will meet on a Sunday between services). We’ll also meet in December to prepare for the Christmas service and again during Lent to prepare palm crosses. Please join us. It is an opportunity to meet others and become more involved in our faith and serve our church. An Altar Guild meeting is scheduled for Sunday, September 26, between services at 10:30 a.m.
ALTAR FLOWERS are given today by Margaret and Hans Witt in memory of Wolfgang Witt. Thank you for your thoughtfulness.
FLOWER CHART for 2021 is posted on the Narthex bulletin board. The Altar Guild invites you to indicate the date on which you wish to place flowers on the altar as an expression of devotion to the Lord, in memory of a loved one, as an expression of joy and thanksgiving on an anniversary or birthday, or other special occasions in life. The cost of the flowers is $30.00. We encourage and appreciate your participation.
IF YOU ARE ADMITTED TO THE HOSPITAL—Please let Pastor or the church office know. Also, let the hospital know you are a member of Our Saviour.
