Welcome 

Welcome to the Church of Our Saviour. Our church is one of the oldest churches west of the Mississippi River and was established in 1861. The structure was built in 1865. When you enter, you are surrounded by history and the simplicity of another time. 

Whether you are new to the area, looking for a church home, or returning to a tradition of faith, I welcome you on behalf of our staff, the parishioners of our parish, and the Episcopal church. In our church, we are committed to fostering an environment where all are welcome.

I believe that following Christ is not an obligation but an invitation. At the Church of Our Saviour, your questions are welcomed. It is a safe place where you can voice your doubts without fear or worry about how they will be received. It is a place of joy and prayer, where laughter and tears can be shared. Your faith will be celebrated, and you will find others to walk alongside you on your spiritual journey.

We would be pleased to welcome you at one of our worship services. We have two onsite Sunday services, one at 8:00 am and one at 10:30 am. The 10:30 am service is live streamed on our Facebook page. If you will be attending from home for the 10:30 service, Click Here for the bulletin and Here for our Facebook page.

And please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or would like to set up a meeting.

The church’s phone number is (916) 622-2441. My email is revdebra.oursaviour@gmail.com.

In Christ, 

Rev Deb

Lenten Reflections: A Light Unto My Path: There are still a few copies left of our booklet of Lenten reflections written by members of our congregation, clergy and a few special friends. They are at both entrances to the church. Kindly consider reading these insights during Lent. Also, please take one or two for friends and family. We have enough to share and this is a great way for people to get to  know us.

Fulfill Your Pledge With Tax Free Dollars

If you have an IRA, IRS rules allow you to make charitable contributions through your financial institution directly to your charities. Under the IRS program Qualified Charitable Distributions, these dollars count towards your Minimum Distribution Requirement but are not taxed as income. This could be a tax saving to you. Contact your financial institution for further information as not all retirement savings accounts are eligible. Click here to read the latest information from IRS about this:  https://www.irs.gov/newsroom/reminder-to-ira-owners-age-70-and-a-half-or-over-qualified-charitable-distributions-are-great-options-for-making-tax-free-gifts-to-charity

S.HA.R.E.: We donate food to this ministry that provides for those in need in our community.  The S.H.A.R.E pantry is run primarily by Federated Church with organizations across our community donating food.   It is currently open three days a week.  Phyllis Smith will be taking in our donations on a regular basis.  Please bring your contributions of canned and packaged, easy to prepare, foods for the bin labeled S.HA.R.E.. If you are bringing canned goods, please bring those that open with pull tops if at all possible.

Recycling: Bring your CRV bottle and can recyclables to church.  Place them in the bins in the Robing Room (that area outside the Parish Hall bathroom).  Boyd Roberts will collect them and the funds from the returns go to the church.

~~~

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 Church of Our Saviour, with "Discretionary Fund" in the memo line.
