Church Newsletter

Pastor's Corner

     I received a newsletter from a former parish that I served.  It started off with the idea that within the next few weeks we would be proclaiming “Christ is risen!!  He is risen indeed!!”  And, needless to say, that is something to celebrate.  But, as the pastor went on to say, we cannot just jump to the joy of Easter without acknowledging the season and days of Lent.  We cannot celebrate the joy of victory and resurrection without the pain and suffering of Good Friday.  Many times in life we would like to skip those dark days of Lent and go to and stay with the happier days of Easter.

     But, we know that life is not only ups.  There are downs as well.  And maybe, as some would suggest, those “downs" are necessary to realize the importance of the “ups” and the celebrations that come with them.  I would, therefore, encourage each of you to remain faithful to our Lenten journey as we worship each Sunday and on Maundy Thursday, March 24, and Good Friday, March 25, both days at 3:30 pm.

 

See you in Church

Pastor Noordzy

 

Thrivent Choice Dollars

Questions continue from our membership regarding your Thrivent dollars.  If you are part of the Thrivent Family you can assign your “dollars” to Our Saviour’s.  This needs to be done every year by calling Thrivent at 1-800-847-4836 and select “Thrivent Choice.”  Dollars may also be designated quarterly in April, July, October and January.  These “dollars’ enable us to continue our benevolent giving.
