First Sunday in Lent

Christian Crafters: Quilting has begun! Please join us on Tuesday mornings from 10:00 am to noon as we make quilts for Lutheran World Relief. We have good Christian fellowship with coffee, and often some sweets to help with creativity. It is OK if you can't make every Tuesday—come when you can.

Bible Study We are continuing Bible study at 7:00 pm on Saturday nights. Join us! Expect an engaging and thought-provoking evening with stories, life applications, and your ideas as well. Pastor Arden is able to translate complex biblical texts that animate and stir the listener. He brings a wide variety of life experiences that illustrate the journey of faith with which we can identify.

Sunday Servants: At the heart of Our Saviour are the many members who dedicate their talents to serving our church. Please speak with Pastor if you have questions about helping as a greeter/usher, lector, communion assistant, worship assistant, Altar Guild member, hospitality host, landscaping or property worker, or other volunteer. Volunteering can enrich your faith and sense of satisfaction and pride in our house of worship. A sign-up sheet can be found in the parish hall during our coffee hour this morning or on the link table during the week.

The hospitality sign-up sheet is available on the link table. Please sign up to host one or two coffee hours during the January through June period.

New Sexton: Our church building has been cleaned and cared for by our sexton Amy Gardiner for many years. For this we are truly grateful. Please thank Amy when you see her. Amy has decided it is time to hand over the responsibilities to a new sexton. Beginning this month, we are pleased to welcome Doug Gordon to the role. Doug is the custodian at the Croton Free Library and comes well recommended

We announce the passing of William (Bill) Firl on January 31, 2018 in Kawaii, HI. Bill was the husband of Erna Firl and the brother-in-law of Frya Barnes. Many of us remember Erna's talent of knitting numerous baby sweaters, hats, scarfs, and blanketsl, which she generously donated to our Christmas fair for a number of years. As a congregation, we would like to extend our love and sympathy to Erna and her family at this sad time.

Checks should be made out to the church and designated "Altar Flowers". After the service, you may take the flowers home or contribute them to be taken to shut-ins or given to others.
