Our Saviour’s Senior Choir, along with the Senior Choir from Peace Lutheran in Pigeon Falls, will be performing a cantata during Holy Week. They will perform at Our Saviour’s during the Good Friday service on April 14th at 7:30 PM.  “The Shadow of the Cross” is a contemporary Tenebrae cantata.  Its message is a reminder that the cross stands for love, stronger than hate, and that hope prevails in times of despair. We hope you will attend.
