OSL Calendar Updates
Do you have an activity or event that you want to share with your church family? The deadline for getting something into the weekly bulletin is every Tuesday by close of business. If you want something added to the Monthly Good News Newsletter Calendar, get a note to the church office as far in advanced as possible. You can also, send us a note via email, Facebook or Twitter.

Notice to All Members
All activities taking place in the church and/or involving our people, need to be added to the calendar in the office once the activity is planned. This way it will be possible to keep from having conflicting activities being planned and resources from being double booked. Before setting a date, you need to make sure there is no other activity already planned for the date you want. You may give the information to Jan Krapohl or Mary Broomfield to be written on the calendar or you may write it on there yourself. Thank you for your help in keeping our schedules running smoothly.

Share Experiences and Strengthen Bonds with Family and Friends
Please make plans to join us this month for these Exciting Events!

Trunk-N-Treat Celebration
Since Reformation Sunday and a youth confirmation worship service are scheduled for the Sunday before Halloween (Oct. 26th), we have moved our annual Trunk-N-Treat event to the following weekend.

So please make plans to join us for all of the fun and festivities on Saturday, November 1st from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. We ask that you dress up yourself and your [car] trunk for Halloween. If you are not able to buy candy to pass out, some bags have been donated that you can use. If anyone would like to donate bags of candy, little prizes or decorations, please contact Jean or Angel or leave the items in the church office.

Christ Questions & Answers
If we all use the same Bible, why are there so many different denominations? What makes the Lutheran Church different than my other urChurch? What about evolution? Isn't it a proven scientific fact? What can we know about the end of time? What about life issues: Infant Baptism, Divorce, Homosexuality, Abortion? Does God still speak to us today? Is His Word reliable? Is it relevant for the 21st century?"

If these are questions that you have asked, then mark your calendar for our next Fit For Life in Christ session. Next class Start Date: September 21, 2014, 12:30 p.m.

Fit For Life in Christ is a 10 to 12 week course that presents the Word of God in exciting and meaningful ways. It is a course for those who are interested in membership in our church, or for anyone who wants to know what it really means to have a relationship with Jesus Christ.

You owe it to yourself and your life with God to register and bring a friend to this enlightening, faith-building opportunity!

Call the church office to register or for more information.

If you would like to attend or volunteer for any of the events or activities going on at Our Savior, or have any questions, please call the church office.

Fall Events - 2014

LWML Crossroads Fall Rally
LWML Crossroads Zone Fall Rally will be held Saturday, October 25th at St. Mark Lutheran Church.

The theme for this year's rally is "Give Most to MOST" (Mission Opportunities Short-term). Barb Collins (Personnel Records Liaison for Michigan District LWML) will be the guest speaker. Coffee hour and registration begins at 8:00 a.m. and the program will start at 9:00 a.m. Let’s have a great Rally.

All Saints Day
All Saints’ Day will be celebrated on Saturday, November 1st this year. The word saint comes from the Latin word sanctus and refers to the holy – that is, “set apart for the service of God.” In some of St. Paul’s letters to the churches he founded the infant Zeus, was said to have a horn that was always filled with whatever anyone wanted to eat or drink. In other tales the Roman goddess of plenty, named “Copia,” always wore or carried a horn filled with fruits and drinks. The horn of plenty was always full; its abundance could never be exhausted.

Today the cornucopia sounds the joyful noise of God’s bountiful blessings, of the abundant, over-flowing graciousness that God makes available in our lives. This horn also sounds a note to remind us that we must use our blessings to bless others.

-Adapted from Homiletics
