Starting Sunday evening, April 14, at 4:30 pm, we will start a seven-week class to explore the question, “Who is Jesus?” We will watch episodes from the video series, The Chosen. Each episode of The Chosen chronicles the ministry of Jesus Christ as he preaches, gathers disciples, and cures the sick. Click Here to see the class flyer. If you have questions, please contact Mark Leighton at 530-721-3613 or Dona Adams at 530-919-5075 (texts are best).

Sunday, April 28, After both services: Grown Up Picture Day: Our new directory will have pictures added. Ruthie Sinclair, who creates our directories, says she can add pictures to the existing master and Kathy Bohr has volunteered to take head shots for the congregation. So come prepared to smile for the camera. There will be a make up day later. If you need to make special arrangements, please contact Lee Weikert at church, or at 530-644-0382.

Quilts For Peirce Hall

Michelle Miller is creating 6 quilts of her own design for Peirce Hall. All will have center panels that highlight Bible verses. For this particular quilt, she purchased the center panel from an artist who does screen printing, and then designed the Celtic knot work that accents the panel.

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.

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.
