Serving in Worship Needs
 
Please let Deb Nollen (dnollen@oursaviorshartland.org) know if you or a family member (including returning college students) would like to serve during December, including Christmas Eve, Christmas and the weekends before and after. During this time, with so many traveling or unavailable, having you volunteer is preferred over me choosing a service that will not work in your family schedule. Other services of the month will be scheduled as usual. Thank you for serving in worship!

As we have done in the past, we are inviting Youth Pianists and Instrumentalists to play for the Prelude at our 4:00 pm service on Christmas Eve. There is sign up sheet on the kiosk. Please also have your Christmas piece picked out. These must be sacred rather than secular pieces.  If you are not sure, contact Carolyn Masterson at
 
Christmas Poinsettia Orders
 
Poinsettias will be used to decorate the Sanctuary for our Christmas Eve services. You may have your plants designated in memory of or in honor of a loved one. Plants may also be designated for a home based member. Please complete the form in the bulletin and drop it in the offering plate along with your check. Poinsettias will cost $10 per plant.
 
 
Changes in the New Year!
The New Year Brings New Sunday Morning Times
 

What’s new in the New Year? For one thing – a new Sunday morning schedule! Your Staff, Leadership Team and Sunday School education team are excited to offer what we believe will be a new and improved schedule for Sunday for 2017.

What stays the same? Quality! Music! Learning about Jesus! Hospitality! A loving community!

What shifts?  The times of Sunday School and the Late Service.  The new, more compact schedule will be:

                Early Service – 8:15 a.m. (same)

               Sunday School – 9:20 a.m.

                Late Service – 10:30 a.m.

We realize we will need to keep the early service to right at one hour, and will work hard to make that happen. We think the closer times will better serve everyone, possibly increase attendance at the late service, and be more appealing to visitors and would-be members.

So, embrace the New Year with new spirit! And why not invite someone you know to come experience the joy of worship at Our Savior’s?

“Look, I am making everything new.” – The Risen Jesus

“Bible Based, Saved by Grace, Serving Jesus Everyplace”
Our prayer is that you would be blessed and strengthened by the power of Jesus Christ and that you will live a life of abundance in fellowship, joy and liberty. Our Savior’s church is here for you. It is a fellowship of believers coming together to declare the glory of the Lord and celebrate Jesus as King. We study the Word, practice what we learn and in the process grow together. “We live by faith, not by sight.” –  2 CORINTHIANS 5 : 7
