Drive-In Movie Night at OSLC:  

TONIGHT – Friday, September 18
8:15 pm Pre-show short film

8:45 pm Feature film

Join us for some good ol’ fashion fun that’s making a comeback! On Friday, September 18, Our Saviour is holding a drive-in movie night for all to enjoy in the church’s parking lot. You are invited to join us for a pre-show short film that will begin at 8:15 pm. The feature film … [drum roll, please] … My Man Godfrey will begin after the pre-show, at approximately 8:45 pm. Just tune your car radio to FM 92.3 to hear it loud and clear.

BYOP: bring your own popcorn – and drinks – as there will be NO concessions. However, the bathrooms in the fellowship hall will be available for your convenience.

Collection for Lutheran World Relief (LWR) Personal Care Kits  

 LWR distributes Personal Care Kits to people all over the world who have lost everything. In the wake of an earthquake or escaping violence, they clasp a towel, bar of soap, and a toothbrush from a faraway place. Washing up, they know that they have NOT been forsaken by the world. You can help by contributing any or all items on the LWR Personal Care Kit list (bath towel, soap, toothbrush, comb, nail clippers). Monetary donations also help us pay for the shipping needed to get the health kits to where they are needed most. Please bring your donations to the church by Sunday, September 27.

Study summary: “Rediscovering” Luther’s ideas of 500 years ago – Justification and Vocation; two ideas—at once simple and scandalous, easily grasped and easily forgotten—central to the Biblical witness, but rediscovered by Martin Luther. Be reintroduced to the reality of God’s promises and pointed in the way to where grace takes you.
