Adult Discussion: On April 14 we begin a six-week program on "The Future of Faith," led by Pastor Rip Hoffman. This program will cover some of the past dramatic changes in the Christian church as well as current church trends and possible implications for the future of our congregation. We meet on Sundays at 9:30 am in the education wing behind Schilke Hall (just follow the signs). All are welcome! -- Joyce Laponte
On Saturday, April 27th, Our By Faith Alone Youth Ministry invites you to eat a "Mardi Gras" dinner at 6 p.m. and to hear about their trip to the ELCA Youth Gathering in New Orleans
It's a traditional feast of jambalaya, pralines, and more to tempt your taste buds. Our youth and their adult advisers will share with you their experiences from the 2012 National ELCA Youth Gathering, "citizens with the saints," that was held in New Orleans.
Sign up now on the By Faith Alone bulletin board outside the kitchen! A free will offering will be collected at the dinner to help defray costs.
Women of the ELCA will meet at 10 am on Tuesday, April 9 in Schilke Hall.

Love gift this month is a special offering for Our Saviour’s Community Garden planned for the upper lot area, organized by our “chief gardener” Eric Frisk. Produce will be donated to Operation Hope food pantry.
