“And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus”  Philippians 4:7


It was another one of God’s beautiful days as 12 of us traveled to Church of the Cross in Port Charlotte, Saturday, April 21, for the LWML Spring Rally.  After the opening Worship Service with Communion, and a lively Bible Study by our Zone Counselor, Pastor Todd Kuehn, we were inspired by a young woman, Jennifer Candia, who shared her work with Charlotte Harbor Young Life.  This is a youth organization led by caring adults who are introducing middle school and high school kids to the love of Jesus by going to kids on their turf and in their culture to build bridges of authentic friendship and trust through Christian fellowship.  They received our “Gifts from the Heart” which totaled over $1400 to further their mission work.  Thanks be to God!

It’s time to start thinking about attending the FL/GA District Convention, Sept 28-30 in Orlando.  It will be held at the Orlando Marriott Airport Lakeside.  Watch for the Summer Evangel (May 15) for more details and registration form.  Early registration is $155.00 until June 30, 2018.  We need two delegates but you can also go as a guest so please pray about it.  Thanks.

I’m happy to report that we have almost reached our goal for Mission Projects for the FL/GA District 20162018 biennium.  We have received $164,104 of the $175,000 goal.  June 30 is the deadline.  Thanks to all who support our projects by using your mite boxes!!!

Your mites are also being used for National Mission projects and that goal is over $2,000,000.  One of the projects being funded is a grant to Lutheran World Relief to help them send and distribute quilts to     countries all over the world.  LWR ships between $12 and $13 million worth of quilts, blankets, baby care kits, personal care kits, school and fabric kits and soap to 20 countries on average each year.  Money is received through generous donations each year but an LWML grant of $80,000 will help sustain funding and support.  For the 75 years that LWML has been in existence Lutheran World Relief has been part of their ongoing support.  Just see what those mites can do!!

Our next meeting is Monday, May 14, at 10:00 AM and I hope you can join us.

Serving the Lord with Gladness”  Psalm 100:2a


Registration Starts in May. Theme is "Strengthened, Helped, Upheld" with the key verse from Isaiah 41:10.  Hear more about many of the wonderful uplifting stories where our mites made a huge difference. 

This year's convention will be held at the Orlando Marriott Airport Lakeside hotel (address: 7499 Augusta National Drive, Orlando).  Watch for more information.

Volunteer Opportunities

Do you enjoy the fellowship time for coffee and refreshments following the 10:30 AM Service? 

Will you consider volunteering?

The Fellowship Board is asking for volunteers to help. 

We already have wonderful volunteers helping already and we so appreciate their assistance.  But we need a few more volunteers especially for fellowship following the 10:30 AM Service.  Please check out our signup board in the narthex. 

Contact Dan Legler, Chair of the Fellowship Board if you have questions 253-222-6273. 


Interested in being part of a Parrish Health Team here at Beautiful Savior?  Nurses, health workers or anyone who has an interest in the health & wellness of our members are welcome to join us. 

Please see Mary Luecke or Pastor Leavitt for more information. 


USHERS -- We need your help...guys & gals, and even the youth can serve as ushers. With some snowbirds still in their northern homes, we need more ushers for BOTH of our Sunday worship services. 


All you need is a smile and some basic knowledge of what is going on during each worship service.  Simply touch base in advance of the service, and you'll be able to help us maintain an organized flow to our worship, especially on communion Sundays. 


Contact Bob Wick to help at the 8am service, or Larry Barnes or Jim Smith if you can help during the 10:30am Sunday worship service.
