150th Celebration Opportunities
Our Savior’s has so much to celebrate lately, new pastors and 150 years of praise and  service to the Lord! To help us celebrate, maybe you, or someone you know, can provide the following: 
~ A larger flatbed trailer that can accommodate the Stonerollers for the Hartland Hometown              celebration parade on July 2nd. 
~ Use of card tables or portable picnic tables with chairs for the float

  ~ Donations of candy for the parade

 Please watch for a sign-up sheet on the kiosk at church. If interested in any of the above, please contact Diane Gratz at gratzdiane@gmail.com or Tracy Gingrass at tracy.gingrass@gmail.com.

Bible Study 101
Were you ever invited to join a bible study? Did you join? If not, what stopped you? What are some of the reasons, questions, or fears that caused you to freeze in your tracks? If you were to come to a class titled Bible Basics or Bible 101, what would you like to see in such a class? What would you like to learn? What can we do so that the next time you are invited to join a Bible study you respond, “I think I’d like that. Tell me more.”
Our Savior’s is planning a study/class and we would like your help. Let us know what your questions, fears, reasons, or anything to help us develop this class. We have some ideas, but would love to hear yours. Please contact Susan Weiss at syweiss@sbcglobal.net or Deb Nollen at dnollen@oursaviorshartland.org with your suggestions and questions. We are available to meet before or after worship on Sundays and Wednesdays. Thank you!
