A NEW BIBLE STUDY HAS BEGUN
On September 22nd, the Sunday morning Bible Class at 9:30 am began a review of the essential teachings of the Bible as found in the Small Catechism. We are using the materials from the "Basics of the Christian Faith" class. All members are welcome to attend, and anyone who has been considering joining the Lutheran Church can take this class to do so.
ON SOLID GROUND:
It’s hard to believe, but “On Solid Ground” is in its 20th
year of broadcasting on WLEW-AM. Starting from an idea by a couple of members to begin a TV ministry, and their willingness to support it, it grew instead into a radio ministry that is heard in Huron, Tuscola and Sanilac counties. Since then, our Sunday morning broadcasts are widely listened to, and have been supported by weekly program sponsorships and by memorials and offerings given for it to the church. Many of you have been faithful listeners and supporters of the broadcast over the years and for that, Thank You!
(People of the Book Lutheran Outreach): Check out our POBLO display in the Gathering Area. There are newsletters outlining the work of POBLO in reaching Muslims, Hindus and other non-Christian people in our country and around the world with the Gospel of Christ, and the changed lives of people because of that. If you would like to support the work of POBLO, there are envelopes for donations posted on that display.
Also, in the Gathering Area is a rack with booklets on various topics from Lutheran Hour Ministries. These helpful and informative booklets are free, and there may be some that will be of benefit to you or someone you know. Check them out.
Our Savior is now participating in the Scrip Program, which many of our Lutheran Schools and churches also participate in. Many stores and vendors will rebate a percentage of what you purchase back to the church. For example: You order through us a gift card of $100.00 (or whatever) for McDonald's Food and Family. You can spend the full $100.00 there, but they rebate back to us a certain percentage of that $100.00. There are many local and national businesses that you typically shop at that participate in this program. So order your cards through us and, when we get them, we will give them to you and you can shop with those cards and help financially to benefit Our Savior.
The Women's League provides dinners for the family following the funeral. The number of women able to work at the funerals is dwindling - please think about volunteering to help. Call the Office, or Rose Stephenson to be put on the list of volunteers.
