Missionary Sponsorship Change
For a number of years, Our Savior’s has supported missionaries Phil & June Nelson, who share in the ministry of the Lutheran Church in the Central African Republic. Phil & June will be ending their missionary service this summer. Please continue to pray for them. We are excited to continue our missionary partnership by supporting Susan Smith, who advises the Village School Program and supports Christian Education Ministries. We are excited to learn more about Susan and the ministries in which she shares. You can read her blog at susan-car.blogspot.com.
From Pastor Randy...
In this season of Lent, come and worship God on Wednesday evening and Sunday morning. Offer your prayer, praise and thanksgiving. Go in peace, renewed and strengthened to serve God and God’s people wherever you are!
Here’s a wonderful piece titled The Bible in 50 words.
God made, Pharaoh plagued, Jesus born,
Adam bit, People walked, God walked,
Noah arked, Sea divided, Love talked,
Abraham split, Tablets guided, Anger crucified,
Joseph ruled, Promise landed, Hope died,
Jacob fooled, Saul freaked, Love rose,
Bush talked, David peeked, Spirit flamed,v Moses balked, Prophets warned, Word spread,
“I take, O cross, your shadow for my abiding place; I ask no other sunshine than the sunshine of his face; content to let the world go by, to know no gain nor loss, my sinful self my only shame, my glory all, the cross.”- ELW “Beneath the Cross of Jesus”, #338
