We will offer a blessing to our animal companions, large and small. This half-hour service will take place on the lawn. In the event of rainy weather, we will gather inside. The gathering will last approximately 45 minutes, allowing for 15 minutes of settling-in time. Invite neighbors or friends who may also like this opportunity to have their special animal companions blessed.

Kickoff Cookout

A great way for us to kick off the academic year together as a church community on mission, get to know one another, and welcome new students to the area! OSLC Regulars, please bring a dish to share. Our men’s group will provide meat & drinks. Visitors & students, just bring yourself, we’d love to meet you!

Fireside Friday – September 13 @ 6 pm!

Come and hang out around OSLC’s fire pit, enjoy a September night, fellowship with others, and play games! Pastor Kyle will provide the s’mores, lemonade, and fire. Bring a snack to share and a game to play, if you wish. Aside from the fire pit, Cana Hall will be available for games. If you can’t come at 6- no worries! Drop in when you can- we would love to see you there!

Vigil for Victims of Gun Violence (And the Rest of Us), Friday, August 9th, 7:00-8:30 p.m.

In the stunning aftermath of the attacks this weekend in Texas and Ohio, we call the community to gather on Friday, August 9th, from 7-8:30 p.m., people of faith and of no faith, in a Vigil for the Victims of Gun Violence (and the Rest of Us), to be hosted at Our Savior Lutheran Church & Campus Ministry, 5 Summer St., Hanover. Come as you are able to during this time to stand together against gun violence.

Those who want to honor the victims with a reading, song, prayer, dance, reflection, exhortation or some other means are invited to do so. If possible, please give us advance notice of your intention by emailing PastorKyle@oslchanover.org so that we might provide appropriate space.

These horrific events continue to reveal intolerance and hatred for “the other”. The shootings manifest again our obsession with violence and our use of guns and of hateful rhetoric to feel powerful.

Our response must reveal another kind of power. That is the power of love and respect for our neighbor, whoever that neighbor is, and our fierce devotion to our nation as a safe and just place where all can live out their lives without fear.
