An Introduction to Visual Faith and Bible Journaling Class

An introduction to visual faith and Bible journaling class will be held at Our Savior on Friday, February 22nd, 5:30-7:30pm. In this class, Karen H. will introduce you to Bible journaling as a way to engage with scripture in a creative, visual, and hands-on way. She’ll walk you through various approaches to visual faith and discuss how this approach can revitalize your faith, help to deepen your knowledge and understanding of scripture as you linger longer in the Word, strengthen your prayer life, and be a bolder witness to Christ’s love and salvation for His people. No prior artistic experience necessary. This class is free, but please pre-register by signing up in the Fellowship Hall or call the church office 540.667.1459 to be added to the class list.


Church History Class

History of Christianity video series by Dr. Timothy George and Church History: The Basics by Paul Maier is being offered each Sunday, 9-10 am, during Adult Bible Study time. With two and a quarter billion adherents alive today, Christianity is the greatest success story in the history of the world. Come, hear and learn how the church of Jesus Christ came to be the greatest movement ever.


Pictures

We will be taking pictures of new members following worship service on Sunday, March 3rd and of any other members that would like a new picture taken. Please let Carol C. or Joan J. know if you will be here.  We'll meet up front in sanctuary.

Easter Caroling 2019

OSLC has started planning our 2019 Easter Caroling event [initial target date of April 20]. Last year we sang songs [Were You There, When I Survey the Wondrous Cross, All Glory, Laud, and Honor, and others], handed out information on our Easter Service, passed out live flowers, and had passersby decorate an Easter Caroling poster. If you can participate or help plan this year’s event, please contact Bethany C. or Cal S.


‘Work of Our Hands’

‘Work of our Hands’ is now the official name of Our Savior’s knitting and crocheting ministry. Our hand-made items go to CCAP, AbbaCare and individuals that we wrap in love and prayer with Prayer Shawls. In the ‘Work of Our Hands’ Ministry Room in the Fellowship Hall is a journal that you can add stories about items you have made or folks (without using names) the items have been given to. Thank you to ALL who are knitting, crocheting and donating yarn to the ministry. Psalm 90:17 May the favor of the Lord our God rest on us; establish the work of our hands for us -- yes, establish the work of our hands.
