Volunteer Opportunities:

BULLETINS: Can you fold and staple?  This is a quiet way to serve and we need your help. Contact Rev. Debra if you can assist.

WASTE CANS: We are looking for someone to take the garbage, recycling, and green waste cans out to the street on Tuesdays. If you are interested, send an email to and we’ll send you a collection schedule. Thank you!!


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.


Newcomer Welcome: Saturday, June 25, hosted by Rev. Debra.

Onsite Services: Mask wearing optional. Safe distancing must be observed. While it is 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:  We have a coffee hour after each service, with beverages only, served in disposable cups. Pull up a chair and visit.


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.


Sunday School: Godly Play, a creative, imaginative approach to Christian formation and spiritual guidance on a Montessori style model. The Montessori style of teaching is so appealing. It is calm, interesting, and the student has the opportunity to have a 'hands on' experience with the lesson of the day. Please tell your friends and neighbors about this very special Sunday school. We want all children to experience the joy of knowing Christ’s message to the world.


Women’s Bible Study on Wednesday mornings: Women's Bible Study began with a new study with NT Wright's study of the book of John. If you would like to join us or have questions contact LeAnn Bettencourt at or at 644-4789.


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.


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.
