Our Savior’s Women are cordially invited to the Annual Ascension Day Brunch by the women of Hope Luth. in Minneota on Thursday,

May 30th at 9:30A.  Pr. Eric Natwick of Tracy Lutheran will be the speaker.  The program also includes music, prayer and of course a

Miriam Circle from St. Matthew met Wednesday at church with Jan    Arends as hostess. Thanks Jan.  We had a good discussion on several items.  Ladies you can look for your assessment letters in your p.o. boxes.  Please remember to pick them up and save us postage.  Other items talked about were senior quilts which will be given to the five graduating seniors on Sunday, May 19; serving at the bloodmobile in July, banner making, school kits and having coffee following services this summer. Following the meeting Donna and I packed 66 child care kits into boxes ready to be taken to LWR in the Twin Cities.   Many, many thanks to Jane Strand and Donna Zollner.  Jane donated several boxes of clothing items and Donna assembled the items so they were ready for boxing up.  We are also looking for someone to help take care of the outdoor plants this summer.  For the last several years Jan and Donna have taken on this responsibility.  It would be nice if someone else would step in and help.

 

Vacation Bible School will be held at Our Savior's in Milroy from June 17-20 this summer.  Please invite family, friends and neighbors to attend! Children that are 4 yrs. old through 6th gr. are welcome! Let Cindy V.

know if you know someone that may need a registration form. We will be in session from 9:00 am.-12:00 pm each morning.  The parent program will be held on Thursday, June 20 at 6:00 pm.  We (members of Our

Saviors) will be providing a potluck meal after the program for the families.  We encourage all members to come on Thursday evening as this will be our outreach to the community this year in place of the summer community worship in the park.  We will be roasting hot dogs and having root beer floats as we did at the worship in the park in the past.  Please plan to join us and see what the children have been learning this week in VBS.  If you are willing to help with snacks or crafts during VBS or help with decorating and preparing sample crafts, please let Cindy know-- we will begin preparations the first week in June all of our materials are here and ready to go.  Thank you!!

We are trying a new plan for Summer Worship this summer! One time each month we will be at each of the churches to have a sing around the campfire type of worship.  We will play songs that are familiar, read scripture and just talk about how that scripture affects our lives as Christians.  It will be very informal, so come in shorts, (or jeans as weather permits!).  If it is raining or too many bugs we will meet in the church and do the same thing in the fellowship hall.  We will not meet in the sanctuary.

Nebraska cleanup!  We will be making a trip to help clean up in Nebraska.  We are trying to coordinate with others in the area.  If you can take out time to join us, I am going to plan a Friday, Saturday, Sunday trip.  We can add a Thursday or a Monday if we have people that want to do so.  I am hoping to go either the end of June or first part of July as we get interest.  Some folks have already gone, and our youth have not had enough interest for their own trip, so we would like to combine and have a group ages 15- adult.  Please let Pr. Nita know soon of your interest, 507-360-7582!

 

Please plan to celebrate and make prayers for our farmers and all agricultural workers. On June 2nd we are going to pray for our farm land, the equipment, and our people who live their lives gambling that a crop will come.  We will pray that God will bless, protect and support us all, providing for our food and life. Join us on June 3, for a Rogation service.
