APRIL 5 IS ANOTHER SWEET MONDAY! –This time we're focusing on spring cleaning. We will be taking tips about how to clean each room of the house.

See you at 7:00pm in the parlor! FAITH BUILDER/ADULT CONFIRMATION CLASS RETURNS – Our Faith Builder/Adult Confirmation classes will be held Wednesdays from April 7 thru May 26 (6-7:30pm).

IT‟S SOFTBALL TIME – Softball... green grass, blue skies, the crack of the bat and cheers of the crowd. Makes me feel warmer already. Once again, I would like to try to field two teams, our regular Division 1 team as well as a Division 3 team (for those who don't like the competitive nature of the upper division). Please let me know if you are interested in playing so that I can arrange with the league to add the second team (if there is enough interest). Contact Steve or Julie Rusch at 406-9077 or email us at ruschs@sbcglobal.net or sign up on the sheet across from the office. We look forward to another year of fun and fellowship with you.

You are invited to bring your best potluck dish and join us in honoring those that keep OSLC running by donating their time and talents. The regular 10:45 am worship service will not be held that day so that everyone can come and enjoy this fellowship event. CONSIDER „SIMPLY GIVING‟ – This Easter season, Our Saviour thanks those individuals and families that support the church throughout the year with their time, talent and financial contributions. We also extend a warm welcome to many new and returning congregation members and hope that you, too, will be generous with your time and contributions in support of our work here at Our Saviour. To assist everyone in making the consistent offerings that are so important to Our Saviour, we ask you to consider making automatic, electronic donations through the Simply Giving program. Please contact the church office (468-4065 or info@oslc-gb.org) for more details. RAISE YOUR VOICE – Do you receive a copy of The Voice each month by snail mail? Would you prefer to receive it by email or just read it online? To change the way you receive The Voice, please call or email Michelle at 468-4065 or info@oslc-gb.org. Please also notify the office when your mailing address, email address or phone numbers change. SERVE OTHERS IN YOUR OWN WAY – All women members of Our Saviour are encouraged to attend the next LWML (Lutheran Women's Missionary League) meeting on Monday, April 12, at 7:00 p.m. in the parlor. We are just getting started, so this is the perfect time to jump in and try us out. Our main objective is reaching out to others. How do we do that? It's really up to you! If you've always wanted to help serve at a homeless shelter, you can. If you prefer to send care packages to missionaries overseas, go for it! You serve how you want. The group helps come up with opportunities and supports one another in missions. (Our invitation to join Christ of the Bay is for later this spring. More information coming.) Questions? Ask Stephenie: 264-8317 or stephhov@hotmail.com HEAR YE, HEAR YE – Imagine a place that connects a member's needs, interests, talents, and passions. The Board of Stewardship is developing such a place. To start it off, they are inviting every member to complete a fun and creative inventory (survey). The information will be used within the congregation only, to allow members to use their gifts for the Lord‟s work. This inventory will be available at the Olan Mills picture taking sessions, and thereafter from the church office and Welcome Center. LIFE QUOTE – “You are valuable to God because He made you and He loved what He made so much that He was conceived in a womb, born in a stable, suffered on a cross, buried in a tomb. Then He rose again to say „Yes‟ to it all, to say „Yes‟ to you, to give you His victory over death and the grave. That‟s love!” Rev. Dr. James I. Lamb, executive director of Lutherans for Life This “Life Quote” is from Lutherans for Life - www.lutheransforlife.org
