Beautiful Savior Church has received over $600 from your shopping on Amazon Smile. 

Amazon donates to Beautiful Savior Lutheran Church. 
It is very easy to sign up, and costs you nothing!

Thank you!

SMILE. . .. . .that is, AmazonSmile. Beautiful Savior has been registered with AmazonSmile to receive a contribution based on purchases by people who select it as their recipient. The AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of all eligible purchases made by those who designate Beautiful Savior to receive it.

If you are already an Amazon shopper, simply go to from the web browser on your computer of mobile device. Your account will come up, just like always, and you will have an opportunity to enter Beautiful Savior Lutheran Church as your charity. This only needs to be done one time—Amazon will remember it and then every eligible purchase will result in a donation.

Shopping will be the same as always except your purchases will qualify for the contribution made to church. As you shop, you will see products marked “Eligible for AmazonSmile donation” on the product page. Most of the tens of millions of items are eligible.

If you haven’t shopped at Amazon before and don’t have an account, it’s very easy to open one and then proceed to as above.

There is no cost to the church or to you for this. It is simply a way to add a few extra dollars to support our church. . .and that’s worth a smile.

We will offer drive-up reception of Holy Communion the first Sunday of every month, between Noon and 1 p.m..

If you are at risk of illness, or afraid of becoming sick, please stay home.  Those that come are reminded to bring a face mask to wear.  As you enter the church parking lot you will be directed to drive to the overhang on the north side of the church.  Once at your station, first ensure that everyone is wearing a protective face mask and then roll down all windows where people are seated.  Do not exit your vehicle.

Pastor Leavitt and Pastor Todd will approach your vehicle.  You will be given a cup of wine and a wafer together in a package.  They will lead you through a short Order of Communion (copy attached, please print and bring with you.)  The bread and wine will be consecrated at the 10:30 a.m. Worship Service that morning.  Those that have questions or desire prayer will be directed to an Elder who will assist you.

Please use the link below to sign up for the Drive-up Communion.   Each slot has room for two cars to sign up every five minutes.  For all people in your car please only sign up for one spot, just list the names after you pick your slot.   Please call the church office if you have any questions.

We look forward to offering you drive-up communion.  We pray that this will be a blessing to you and your family during these pandemic days.

Stay well and safe,

Pastor Leavitt ...(link for FEB 7th, 2021)

Giving to God's Work

During this pandemic time, if possible, it
is important that you continue your financial commitment to the Lord’s work
here at Beautiful Savior so that services and basic facility costs can be
handled. Our Treasurer, Bill Christensen has recently written about this. His message follows.
"With the decision made cancelling worship services in our sanctuary from mid-March until May 30th, we were primarily concerned of the safety and well being of our members. For those of you who wish to continue to make your regular donations to meet monthly expenses there are alternative ways of giving. You can send an envelope with a check to the church in the mail (it is best not to send cash in the mail) or you can set the church up as a vendor and use bill pay from your checking account. 

  • Most banks give you the ability to electronically send a check from your account to the church. 
  • IF you use bill pay, please put your envelope number as the account number.

The church’s address is 7461 Prospect Road, Sarasota, FL 34243.

Those of you who are at least 70 1⁄2 can direct a required minimum distribution from an IRA to the church and it may not be taxable to you. If you have any questions you may contact Bill Christensen, Treasurer at 941-359-6908 or
