Our Savior’s this week:
  • Thank you one and all for your overwhelming response to the freewill offering for the window replacement at our celebration dinner April 15 (over $600)! Also, a HUGE thank you for your pledges (we should be able to get rolling on the project as soon as possible). Thanks be to God – and for us working together!!! If you would still like to make a pledge, there will be a skinny sheet in Sunday’s bulletin or contact Emily in the church office. Pledges to be paid over time may also be made – simply indicate your intent on the form. Checks for pledges should be made payable to OSLC with “window replacement” in the memo line and placed in the offering or mailed to the church office. Thank you again so very much!!!!
  • Reminder: Council Retreat/April meeting is Sunday, April 22 from 1:30-4:30 at OSLC in the Sunshine Room. See you then.

    About the ELCA: To learn more about the ELCA as a denomination and people of faith, this about ELCA World Hunger: In Bohong, a town in the Central African Republic, it is estimated 75% of the homes were destroyed during years of conflict and fighting. There, “young men are working with an aid team to build new homes. About 600 houses have been built by teams of local residents. The project, supported by Lutheran Disaster Response, provides cement for house foundations and wood for door and window frames.”

    Prayer for the week: Almighty God, give us ears to hear and follow the Good Shepherd, your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
