Welcome to Worship! Reformation
Please join us for Holy Communion! Welcome to the Lutheran Church of our Saviour! We will be celebrating Holy Communion this morning. You need not be Lutheran nor a member of this congregation. All are invited to join us at God’s Table. Gluten-free bread and grape-juice are also available.
Today’s Psalm Our Psalm for today is Psalm 149 found on the screen or on page 338 and following in your hymnal. We will be singing the Psalm responsively by whole verse.
Tarnished Halos “To be a Saint, all it takes really, is to belong to God. It’s not a matter of being or doing good or wearing a camel-hair shirt and eating locusts in the desert, or even performing 3 documented miracles. It’s simply a matter of belonging to God through our Baptism.” From today’s sermon: “Tarnished Halos”
Today we remember... and give thanks for the lives and love of Mervyn Pegelo, Grace Brydon and Maurice Publuske, all of whom touched our lives and who now find their rest in God. “O Lord, your grace is everything; your love has made us free to stand among the saints and sing the glory that we see, the glory that we see.” (ELW #441, vs. 4)
All Saints Sunday During our liturgy this morning, you’ll be invited to come forward with your candle, to light it in memory of the saints in your life, and to place it on or in front of the altar.
SNOW PLOW OPERATOR NEEDED! We are looking for a snow plow operator to keep the church parking lot clear throughout the winter months. Please speak to either Joyce Grahlman or Richard Prowd if you might be interested.
Celebrating Autumn... Many thanks to all who joined us last Sunday evening for a Potluck Harvest Dish Dinner and to kick-off the fund-raising for the resurfacing of the parking lot. $ was raised, plus we have applied for a $ matching grant from FaithLife Financial. Many thanks to the Witness Ctte for arranging and hosting such a lovely evening!
