Confirmation Class Orientation New Day and Time

  

     Due to a conflict with the 8th grade class trip meeting,  I am moving the Parent/Student Confirmation orientation meeting to Wednesday Sept 21 at 5:30 pm (please also note time change). 


     I would still like to meet with the students for our normal class time of 2:30 on Sept 21 to do acolyte training.

 Fall Harvest Dinner   


Dear Church Members,

  

     Fall is here, which means it’s time for our annual harvest dinner! We will be doing carry out meals ONLY due to COVID. Our Saviour’s Lutheran Church’s Harvest Dinner will be held Sunday, October 9, from 10:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.   Confirmation students and parents are asked to help with the carry outs & many other folks donate their time, talents & treasures for which we are very grateful. The money earned for our dinner goes into our GENER AL FUND. In the past we have earned $6-7,000 so it is a successful project!

      Each family is asked to contribute a minimum of $10. This money will be used to buy supplies and food needed for the dinner. In lieu of asking some members to make a pan of bars, we are purchasing them from Lucy’s Lunch Wagon. Please turn in your monetary donation by October 2nd . Monetary donations can be dropped off, labeled Harvest Dinner, in the following ways:

 

? At the church office

? In the mail slot in the church secretary’s door

? Placed in the offering plate during church

? At RCU in Whitehall

 

     In addition, we are ASKING that volunteers from last year do the same job you did then. If you don’t remember what you did, look online at the address below or check the lists posted in the narthex. If you can do this assignment again, please initial the list in the narthex. If you cannot do that job please contact the church office or a committee member. You and your family members can volunteer to help by:

 

 *Signing up online; this link is  https://bit.ly/3cM81Ic or it can be found on Our

Saviour’s Lutheran Church’s Facebook Page. The online lists are the same as last year.

You may update it if you wish to change your assignment.  

*Contacting someone from the Harvest Dinner committee

*Signing up on the volunteer sheets in the back of the church

 

       Lastly, thank you for your help with church family fundraiser. The Harvest Dinner Committee has worked hard to make this event successful, but we can’t do it without the support of the entire church. We hope your family will buy carry outs of our delicious Harvest Dinner!

 

Sincerely,

Harvest Dinner Committee:

            Harvest Dinner Raffle

 

 

     We will once again be having the Harvest Dinner Raffle, but in a different format than previous years. This year raffle prizes will be cash and gift cards. By doing so, we will be able to mail prizes to the lucky winners, without the need for us to deliver or the winners to pick them up in the church office. We feel that this is a way to hold the raffle, but safely.

 

         We will not be soliciting donations from business owners as we have in the past. Many of them have been impacted financially with Covid-19 and we do not believe that it is the time to ask them for a donation. We instead encourage you to purchase and donate a gift card from a local business, if you are able. In this way you are supporting our local business community and the church as the same time.

    

     Gift cards may be left in an envelope with your name and placed in the offering plate on Sunday mornings.   You may also contact one of us and we will be happy to arrange for pickup.

 

     If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to one of us. Thank you for your support! Barb Mathson (75-533-3057) and Karen Witte (715-299-1060).
