“I will give you shepherds after my own heart, who will feed you with knowledge and understanding.” – Jeremiah 3:15
 
Great News! We are pleased to announce that God has answered our prayers for new pastors. Please welcome Jennifer Rose and Matthew Rose to our church family.

Matthew and Jennifer bring with them a strong enthusiasm for children, youth, senior and family ministry. They also have passion and gifts in service and outreach ministry, as well as an energy and desire to nurture faith along with many additional gifts.

The Roses have four children. They will be moving to Hartland after the children finish school and they sell their home. They hope to be in worship with us on June 25th to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Our Savior’s. Their official start date will be on July 1st.

This is an exciting, hopeful time in the life of Our Saviors! Please continue to pray through this transition process, for the Rose family as they prepare to depart Fergus Falls and move to Hartland, for the rest of the staff at Our Saviors, and all the members of this family of Faith. Also please keep their current congregations, Hope Lutheran and First Lutheran, in your prayers. Pastoral transitions provide unique challenges to congregations, and we hope that God provides them with new pastors who will serve them faithfully in the future.


God has blessed this church so richly and we look forward to this new era in our ministry with hope and confidence that God will continue to grace us with the gifts we need to carry out this mission He has entrusted to us. We look forward to the new pastors joining us and walking with us on our Faith Journey. Please take time to join us for worship on Sunday, in one of our Bible study sessions, or at any of our upcoming activities and social functions. ALL are welcome to worship in our church so come on in and invite your friends and neighbors to join you.

It is a fellowship of believers coming together to declare the glory of the Lord and celebrate Jesus as King.
