New this week – June 16, 2020

Dear Friends,

King David encourages us in Psalm 34:8 to “Taste and see that the Lord is good. Blessed is everyone who takes refuge in him.” This verse reminds us of the importance of experiencing God’s goodness; and as we do, we will truly appreciate it all the more. Taste and see God’s love as you read his Word and receive his Sacrament. Taste and see God’s mercy as you find refuge in the good news of his forgiveness. Taste and see the goodness of God and live in the joy of his blessings. “O give thanks to the Lord for he is good…” (Psalm 118).

Holy Communion

We have begun to again celebrate the Lord’s Supper during our regular worship services the first and third weekends of the month! We understand that some people many not yet feel comfortable gathering on campus for worship, and that for others it may not be advisable to return to on campus worship at this time. If this applies to you, but you would welcome a member of our pastoral staff to serve you private communion, either at your home or in the church office, please call us and we will arrange a visit. (Please note that some of the care facilities do not yet allow us on site. We must wait until those restrictions have been lifted before we can visit those facilities.)

Call Update

We are pleased to announce that Mrs. Amanda Gronholz has accepted the Call to serve as a part-time teacher in our school for the 2020-2021 school year. We thank the Lord that he has led Mrs. Gronholz, Mr. Hahm (principal) and Pastor Hintz (pulpit assistant) to serve the Lord and his people at Our Savior.

Prayer Requests

Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus” (1 Thessalonians 4:16-18). Let us know of any prayer requests for the Prayer Circle or worship services.
