BACK TO THE BASICS! Adult Information Class began on Monday, October 9th, at 7:00 PM. The class covers the most important teachings of the Bible as they are believed, taught and confessed in this Lutheran Congregation. The class is designed for anyone considering membership in Our Savior Lutheran Church and for members of the congregation who would like a great review of basic Bible doctrine. It should be particularly interesting for both member and non-member school parents to familiarize you with what your kids are learning in class every day. The class will meet from 7:00 - 8:30 PM, on Monday evenings, and continue for twelve weeks. Babysitting and refreshments will be provided. Join us on Mondays to go “BACK TO THE BASICS.” You will be glad you did.
The Altar Guild will be decorating our church with poinsettias again this year. Celebrate the joy of our newborn Savior with flowers in memory of loved ones or a special occasion. Your dedication will be printed in a special book that will be handed out at the Christmas services.
Email your request to Debbie. Each poinsettia plant is $10.00. Checks are to be made out to OSL.
Poinsettias will be available for pick up after the New Year’s Eve Service. Poinsettia dedication deadline for the book is December 15th.

Sunday School Christmas Program
The children in PK to 8th grade will be participating in the Advent worship service on Wednesday, December 13, at 7:00 pm. Practice will be in the cafeteria for the first part of Sunday school hour on Dec. 3, for children from 1st to 8th grades. They will return to their regular classrooms after that for dismissal or pickup. On Dec. 10, all children, including PK, will remain in the sanctuary after church for a dress rehearsal. Your child’s participation in this worship service is greatly appreciated as the children join in sharing the message of the Christmas story with others.

This is an event for the whole family! We travel by bus and then come back to church for snacks and fellowship. Bring a snack to share and come with your voices strong and ready to sing. Pastor Krieg will lead us as we sing to our shut-in members and spread some Christmas cheer!
