Welcome Home Sunday, hosted by the Elderberries, will be held on Sunday, October 21 at 10:30 am. All past and present members, families and friends, and community neighbors are invited to join us.

A covered dish luncheon will be held in the Fellowship Hall following the worship service. The Elderberries will provide the meats, and members are asked to bring their favorite side dishes and desserts to share.

Please plan to attend and bring your families and friends to worship, reminisce with your brothers and sisters in Christ and enjoy a great meal provided by Our Saviour’s awesome cooks. This is always a special event for our congregation and we look forward to sharing the day with you.

Sunday School begins at 9:15 am in the chapel and the worship service begins at 10:30 am in the sanctuary. The luncheon will immediately follow in the Fellowship Hall.

Last year was our 60th anniversary here at Our Saviour and our theme was “Built on a Rock”. That rock continues to keep us strong in our love of Christ and our dedication to our Church and carrying out God’s mission. See you on October 21 for Welcome Home!
