Welcome 

~ All Are Welcome ~

No matter where you come from or where you’re going,
No matter what you believe or what you doubt.
No matter what you feel or don’t feel today.
You are welcome into this space to be met by
a God who knows you by name,
Who knows your heart, who knows your mind, and
Who wants to be in a relationship with you.

We respect the dignity of every human being by welcoming, validating, and supporting all persons, whatever their race, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, age, health status, physical ability, marital status, or stage of spiritual journeying.

For your information

Services will be held onsite this coming Sunday, June 20th. Masks are required. The service will also be livestreamed on our Facebook page. If you are joining us from home, please click here for the 10:30 am service bulletin and here for our Facebook page.

NEWS, NOTES, AND COMING EVENTS

Onsite Services: We are keeping the doors open for worship. We still need to wear masks at all times inside the church for the time being. Safe distancing must be observed. This means seating in every other pew and families sitting six feet apart.  The CDC has announced new guidelines regarding the wearing of masks. We are waiting for directions from the state and county before changing our policy.  

While it always wise to stay home when you are feeling cold or flu symptoms, it is especially important now if you have any symptoms for cold, flu or Covid-19. Possible Covid symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, chills, night sweats, sore throat, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, tiredness, muscle or body aches, headaches, confusion, or loss of sense of taste/smell.

 

 

 

Coffee Hour Returns:  Pull up a chair in the courtyard and visit. We will have a coffee hour after each service with beverages only, served in disposable cups. Elsie Cannon has retired from her many years of being Coffee Hostess Coordinator. Thanks, Elsie, for a job well done! Now we need someone to take over this role. The schedules have been set up annually, hostesses (and hosts) arrange their own changes in schedule, if needed. New coffee hostesses and hosts are now needed as we begin to gather. If you can help with a coffee hour, please speak up.

Community Prayer Corner: Have you checked It out yet?  We offer a place for folks walking by the opportunity to add their prayers. This painted rock is located by the front stairs to the church where there is also a basket of pens and strips of cloth to write on. Everyone is invited to pray silently and/or leave their written prayer on the front fence.

 

 

 

 

 

Invite • Welcome • Connect ~

Cherie Raffety and Leslyn Shortes are excited about this transformational process for our parish. They will be contacting those who serve in various capacities at Our Saviour as part of their information gathering. The long term goal is to invigorate our ways of doing what Jesus has asked us to do, that is engaging our fellow man and spreading the word of the Lord.  (Mark 16:15). Watch for more information as we move forward. For more information contact: Cherie Raffety 530-626-8020.
 
From the website: Invite Welcome Connect is a ministry of transformation that equips and empowers individuals and congregations to cultivate intentional practices of evangelism, hospitality, and belonging. Rooted in the Gospel directive to “Go and make disciples of all nations”, this ministry provides a practical theological framework and comprehensive process for engaging communities of faith to move from a maintenance culture to a gospel driven mission culture. Invite Welcome Connect is a program of The Episcopal Church with roots in the Diocese of Texas with further development at the University of the South in Sewanee, TN. Further information can be found on their website by clicking here: http://invitewelcomeconnect.com

Forward Movement Day by Day: May has begun a new quarter for this booklet of daily readings.  Pick up your copy at church on Sunday or if you want a copy mailed to you please contact LeAnn Bettencourt by phone @ 644-4789 or click here to send her an email request: lkbett@live.com.

Ordo Calendars: Ordo calendars are church year guides to the seasons of the church year and show the dates for special commemorations, feasts and fasts, along with the appropriate color for each season. The Sunday lessons are printed on the back page for each month. Ordos are used by your clergy, Altar Guild, and writers of Prayers of the People. We have several extra copies of the 2021 calendar. If you would be interested in having a copy please contact Lee Weikert at 644-0382 or eklktcwe@earthlinnk.net.

Crossings Conversations Podcasts: Amid Church Divinity School of the Pacific's ongoing discernment about their role in the future of leadership formation in the Episcopal Church and beyond, Bishop Megan and several other Bishops were interviewed to provide wisdom and vision for developing lay and ordain ministers in a wide range of contexts. To read the article, click hereIf you’re intrigued by what you read, check your favorite podcast app or cdsp.edu/podcasts to subscribe to Crossings Conversations. The full interviews will be regularly featured there in the coming months.

Discretionary Fund: Rev. Debra maintains a Discretionary Fund that she can use to provide assistance as needed.  She can provide emergency assistance for food, transportation, and help with medical bills. The Vestry provides some funding for this every year, but additional donations would expand what Rev. Debra can do during the year. Donations may be made to Our Saviour, with "Discretionary Fund" in the memo line.

Parish Interviews: Rev. Debra has embarked on a project to interview individual parishioners and to post those interviews weekly on our Facebook page. Here are the very thought provoking questions she has written to guide the interviews. Click here to check weekly for each new interview or to listen to any you may have missed.

  • What was your childhood experience with religion? 
  • Did you go to church, and if so, which one and with whom?
  • How did you come to the Episcopal church?
  • Do you have any Biblical passages or stories from the Bible that have guided you throughout your life?
  • Viktor Frankl was a Holocaust survivor who later became a psychiatrist. He devoted his life to helping others finding meaning in life. He said that each person is irreplaceable and inimitable. The question a person should ask themselves each day, and each hour, is not “What can I expect from life ?” but rather “What does life want from me?” As a Christian, the question is "What does God want from me at this time?" How would you answer that question? 
  • Fred Rogers - "Who loved you into being?"
