“Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God;  

I will strengthen you.  I will help you, 

I will uphold you with my  righteous right hand.”          Isaiah 41:10

This verse is the theme of the FL/GA LWML Convention in Orlando on September 28 – 30.  Two delegates representing Beautiful Savior, Lucy Fuller and Penny Myers, will be voting on new Mission Projects.  

There are 18 new Mission Grant Proposals; also resolutions to approve and new officers to elect.  We pray for the Lord’s guidance in all these choices.

As you may remember the National LWML Convention will be held in Mobile, Alabama next June.  

Our mites are continuing to fund the current mission projects one of which is “Equipping Youth to Witness for Life – Y4Life”  a grant of $25,000.  Y4Life is a program for young adults and older teens to speak to their peers about issues such as unplanned pregnancies and abortion and is part of Lutherans for Life.  In their training they learn that 27% of those having an abortion have no religious affiliation and only 25% have been to church in the last month.  As sad as this situation is, it is also an opportunity to share the Gospel and God’s love.  Through training these young people can give guidance and information about alternative services while witnessing to their peers. 

The LWML office is moving to Concordia Seminary – St. Louis campus this fall after years of renting at Concordia Publishing House.  CPH will continue to warehouse LWML resources and fulfill orders.  

Remember to mark these dates on your calendar:

  • Next meeting will be Monday, September 17 at 10:00 AM 
  • LWML Sunday – October 14, 2018 
  • The October meeting will be Monday, October 8th 


“Serving the Lord with Gladness”  Psalm 100:2a

On Sunday, October 14, we will welcome a representative from “Throne of Grace” as part of LWML Saturday.   “Throne of Grace” is a ministry that works with homeless men and women.  Pastor Todd also works with this group and Beautiful Savior recently collected much needed items for them which they greatly appreciated.   

  • On LWML Sunday our door offering will be given to “Throne of Grace”.

Come and have breakfast with us also that day!

“Being raised outside the church, working in a regimented military career,

and living with a Muslim husband certainly could send a young woman into emotional and physical overload.  This was the life of Erica Stephenson, as she served her country and her family, yet she was separated from God.”  She shares her story in the latest issue of the “Lutheran Woman’s Quarterly”.  Erica is a witness to the “steadfast love and faithfulness of our Heavenly Father, who called her out of darkness, into His marvelous light (I Peter 2:9)”.  As a reminder to all of us Erica says “I do not have to shoulder life by myself.  I am a beloved child of God and he wants me to lay my burdens at His feet.”  Her husband has also become a Christian as well as their children.  Erica is still in the military but is also serving as a part-time Deaconess in her home church.  “Praise the Lord”.

DISTRICT CONVENTION -- Orlando, Sept 28-30, 2018

“Strengthened.  Helped.  Upheld.”  Isaiah 41:10 is the theme for the Florida/Georgia District LWML Convention to be held in Orlando Sept. 28-30.  

Lucy Fuller and Penny Myers will be attending as delegates representing Beautiful Savior LWML.   We sincerely appreciate their willingness to serve in this capacity.  Thank you, Lucy and Penny.

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.
