Receive the Body of Christ

Communion distribution during the week will not be offered while the pastors are on vacation (July 13 – July 28, 2020).
Depending on the need, it may or may not continue after their return since in-person services for both Saturday evenings and Sunday mornings have resumed. 

Pastor Terri and Pastor Michael have been on vacation since July 13, but will be returning to the church office of Our Saviour on July 29. Feel free to stop in and welcome them back!

During the rest of the time the pastors are away, we continue to encourage church members to take care of each other spiritually. If you have a pastoral care need, call Yvette Pfeiffer at the church office or Cathy Cogdill at home. They will try to connect members with gifts to members with needs. In a true emergency, they can also reach the Churches.

Council members remain the leaders of the business and ministries of Our Saviour and will help with any day-to-day ministry questions.
