Season’s givings

Christmas is more than season’s greetings, it’s a season of giving at Our  Saviour’s. That includes an Angel Tree program in which members can provide Christmas presents for children in need.image

Also coming up this season is OSELC’s dinner theater performance of Christmas Letters: The Musical at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 16.

At 6 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 20, OSELC will also host a Longest Night/Blue Christmas service. Held in conjunction with several other chuches, the service is intended to offer spiritual support for those are grieving or are depressed.

The season’s givings concludes with Our Saviour’s annual Christmas Eve service at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 24. The candlelit service will include special music and encouragement.

Please join us for any or all of these opportunities for fellowship and sharing during the Christmas season.
