Gather October 2016

September 2017

Summer has quickly passed us by and we can start looking forward to cooler days. Along with that it is time to start thinking of how we can prepare for Julefest 2017. Please see the article in this newsletter, and look for information in the bulletin and on our website, for ways that you can help to make this years as successful as it has in been in the past. I am so thankful for all the generosity of our congregation preparing for this special day.


On September 8-9 the WELCA Bear Butte conference will hold its annual Fall Retreat at Outlaw Ranch. Registration is due by August 29. Last year we had 18 ladies from Our Savior’s attend so we are hoping even more can go this year. The theme is “Who Is My Neighbor?” It will be hosted by St James Lutheran Church in Belle Fourche and gives a chance to commune with God in a special setting. Please call me or pick up a registration form from the back table in the Fellowship Hall. Hope to see many of you there.


We will hold our Salad Luncheon and General Meeting on September 14 at noon. It is a Potluck where everyone brings a salad to share. Deborah Circle will provide a dessert. The program will be presented by those who attended the National Triennial Convention in Minneapolis. There will be election of officers and a constitution by-law update vote. We moved the time to noon in hopes that even those who might be able to attend over their lunch hour. We hope to see many of you there for this very important meeting.


Another very special lady has left her earthly home to be with her Father in Heaven. Deb Martius who always put sunshine into my day was taken from us I want to say way too soon but it is all in God’s time not my time. She was a special lady who helped with everything in the kitchen and one of the hardest WELCA workers I know always working until the bitter end. I always loved her thought provoking questions in Bible Study and she made us dig deeper for an answer. We are going to miss her so much. Until we meet again!
