Please mark your calendar and save the date for the 2017 Confirmation Retreat Sunday, August 20th to Monday, August 21st! This is open for all youth entering confirmation (6th grade) through those being confirmed this fall (9th grade). We will be joining our friends from Our Saviors in Virginia and United in Christ in Eveleth at Camp Vermilion for this one night adventure. We'll meet at Our Saviors at 1pm and then we will return to church around 10:30am Monday morning. Please bring your Bible, a pillow and sleeping bag, pajamas and a change of clothes, swimsuit and towel, toothbrush and other toiletries. Suggested family contribution: $25 includes the cost of lodging, dinner, and breakfast at camp. For further questions, please contact Pastor Eric.
WELCA School Kits Project
August always has the best prices on school supplies when a few dollars can buy what so many children in other countries and even our own country need. Please help use to fill backpacks for them. Last year we made 20, and would like to make more this year. You can be a part of this worthwhile project by purchasing some items from the list below. Each backpack will include the following:
1 box of 16 or 24 Crayons
1 ruler with centimeters and inches
1 pencil sharpener
4, 70-sheet notebooks, 8 x 10 1/2
1 pair blunt scissors
5 unsharpened #2 pencils
5 black or blue ballpoint pens
1, 2 1/2" eraser
Our quilters will be making sturdy, drawstring backpack-style bags the correct size and design for Lutheran World Relief. We'd appreciate your help with this worthwhile project. Place your selected items in the box below the table in the narthex or put them on any table downstairs.

ELCA Youth Gathering - Houston, Texas
Mark your calendars for June 23 to July 2, 2018 and have the experience of a life time with Lutheran Youth from all the United States attending the 2018 ELCA YOUTH GATHERING to Galveston and Houston Texas.
Those youth who are in 8th to 11th grade in the 2016/2017 school year are invited to attend.
The cost of the synod for the trip is $1,250. This does not include all our meals so we will plan to raise $1,600 per person to hopefully cover all expenses for the trip.
We will start funding raising right away with Betty’s Pies.
Please join me Sunday, March 5 at 7:00 at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church if you are interested in attending the gathering to hear more about the gathering and start fundraising.
