Make a Kit, Change a Life! Kits of Care Collection, June 21-25, 2021

When natural disasters strike or when war drives families from their homes, our hearts ache with compassion, but we don’t know how to help. Making Kits of Care is a simple, fun, and tangible way to offer comfort to those suffering and express love to our neighbors in need.

Our Savior Lutheran Church will welcome a truck from Lutheran World Relief to collect Quilts and Kits of Care for worldwide distribution those in need.  Make a kit, or two, or more – each kit will make a difference!  This is an easy way for you and your friends to turn ordinary items into extraordinary gifts – a hands-on way to help someone in need.  Visit lwr.org/kits for kit assembly instructions and tips.  Note: Personal Care Kits are the item in highest need right now. 

Make arrangements to deliver your Kits of Care by contacting the church office at 603-643-3703.  Collection will take place the week of June 21-25, 2021.

Fireside Friday! May 28, 2021, 6 – 8 p.m.

Weather permitting, you are invited to join us outside (masked and distanced) for some outdoor fellowship on Fireside Friday, May 28th anytime between 6 and 8 pm. We will provide the fire and some music, you bring your own chair, and together we will create fellowship. If you have an abundance of firewood at home that you would be willing to share with the church, please contact the church office.

Book Discussion: Everyday Spirituality

Looking Ahead to Our Book Group Discussions

Our book discussion group will be meeting over Zoom every other Tuesday to discuss a new book, “Everyday Spirituality” written by New England Synod Bishop James Hazelwood.   “Everyday Spirituality” is exactly what the title says – an invitation to honor ordinary experiences as holy ground.  We don’t have to go on a retreat or sign up for spirituality lessons – we can stay where we are and sense divine presence in what we do each day.  Bishop Hazelwood weaves together insights from scripture and theology with his own experiences and the stories he has received from others.  He writes with the heart of a pastor and a mystic.  

Please contact Paul Manganiello or the church office with any questions and for Zoom information.

If you would like a copy of Everyday Spirituality, you can order the book through a local bookstore, an online vendor such as Amazon or Target, or through the NE Synod by contacting Martha Whyte at the New England Synod. Proceeds from the sale of this book will go to the Synod’s Jubilee 2020 Fund and the Fund for Leaders to help eliminate seminarian debt.
