Burning with the Spirit of Christ in us, we are called to serve our neighbors.  In following Jesus’s teaching and example, we at Our Savior Lutheran Church will feed souls through worship, word and witness while feeding our neighbor with our hands and actions.

Rooted in the good news of Jesus Christ, and the Lutheran tradition, we come from diverse places and experiences to grow as Christ’s disciples in faith, hope, and love. We hope you will join us!

Sunday, December 4, 2022 – Second Sunday of Advent

10:00 am Sunday Worship

We welcome you to worship this Sunday, the second Sunday of Advent!

The Executive Committee strongly suggests attendees continue to wear masks in worship, principally because of singing. Please continue to stay home if feeling sick and receive Holy Communion in a safe manner.

Live online: Use this link to Worship Live with us at 10:00 am, with the prelude preceding. The link to the service bulletin is available here: Sunday, December 4, 2022 – Second Sunday of Advent. If you try the video link prior to 10:00 on Sunday, you may see the message “video unavailable.”

The Memorial Service for Carol Harbolt will be held on Friday, December 9 at 11:00 a.m.

Help is needed for the Carol Harbolt Reception (that will follow the Memorial Service):

From Dianne Tanner: On Thursday, December 8 at 1:00 p.m., two more people are needed to prep food and platters in the OSLC kitchen. Table set up and flowers will also be done at that time. On December 9 at 9:00 a.m., one more person is needed to help. All members are a part of this ministry. There will also be a sign-up sheet for food; sliced meat or cheese and a few more desserts are needed. Please sign up with Dianne after service on December 4. Dianne’s email is butterdmt@comcast.net, and her phone # is 425-392-7430. Your help is appreciated.

Christmas Giving 2022

On Sunday, December 4, 11, and 18, Community Outreach will be collecting gift cards for two purposes:

1. Vine Maple Place, an organization that breaks the generational cycle of homelessness by working with single parents and their children, is asking for $10 or $15 gift cards from McDonald’s, Subway, or Taco Time for parents to gift their teens to use to go out and visit with friends.

2. Secondly, OSLC is collecting $25 Target, Safeway, and Fred Meyer gift cards to use when we get requests from our church members and the community for a little extra help. They can help purchase food, gas, medications, etc.

We’ll have a Christmas tree in the Narthex.  Please take an ornament with the gift card request on it, purchase the gift card(s), and put your gift cards in the box next to the tree. The Community Outreach Committee thanks you in advance!
