OSL “Breaking Through the Darkness”: The OSL Healing Mission with Pastor Carl Rivera will be on Saturday, November 5, 2016. Pastor Carl was a first responder on 9/11 with the New York Police Department. Just two years ago, he retired from pastoring a church in Palm Bay facing cancer. A routine surgery turned into a crisis—and yet God brought him through the middle of it. Come and hear him teach from the Word about God’s grace and light! It’s not too late to invite a friend—more info available in the Welcome Center!
All Saints’ Sunday: Next Sunday, November 6, will be a big day here at Our Savior. Firstly, All Saints is a day to remember all the saints who have gone before us—and so we will mention by name those who have died this past year. The Daughters of the King will also remember All Saints Day with a special offering and corporate communion.
Secondly, we will gather in our Covenant Cards for 2017. As we remember those who went before us, we renew our commitment to the Lord who leads us in his Church forward. Remember to bring your Covenant Card! If you did not receive the Annual Letter, let us know on the Bulletin Tab so we can send you one this week. Thank You!
Time to Fall Back: Daylight Savings ends next Sunday, November 6, so be sure to turn your clocks back one hour and enjoy an extra hour of sleep!
