COUNCIL AND VOTERS’ MEETING MINUTES – Copies of the December Council meeting
minutes as well as the minutes from the annual voters’ meeting held on December 4, 2011 are now at
the Welcome Center. These are also emailed to all members of OSLC if we have email addresses.
THE VOICE – FEBRUARY EDITION – The latest edition of our monthly newsletter, The Voice
Online, has been emailed to all members and printed and mailed to those who have made the request.
Additional printed copies can be found at the Welcome Center.
IS IT SCRIP TIME? – There is no time like today to start buying SCRIP from Our Saviour! A
percentage of each card sold automatically becomes a donation to OSLC. You plan to buy groceries
or gas, or you plan to eat out, OSLC gets a donation. To learn more, stop by the Welcome Center
today or come to the office during regular business hours. If you have (or will have) a child at Green
Bay Trinity, OSL Preschool or in the youth group, ask about our ‘tuition reimbursement’ program.
Buying SCRIP is good stewardship!
YOUTH PIZZA SALE – If you ordered pizza from the Youth, please pick up your pies in the gym
after the service. If you forgot to order or need extras, there will also be a supply of premade pizzas
available for purchase. Thanks for supporting the Youth of Our Saviour with your taste buds!

THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS – When you donate used cell phones, empty prescription pill
bottles, aluminum cans, beads, and coupons, it’s the best of both worlds…you dispose of something
you are done with and others benefit from them. We also collect knitting/sewing materials, Box Tops
for Education, Labels for Education, Capri Sun pouches, specially marked milk caps, and Coke
reward codes (bottle caps & multi-packs). These items benefit medical mission trips, overseas
military families, local missions, GB Trinity Lutheran School, Camp Luther and Our Saviour.
QPR COMES BACK TO OUR SAVIOUR! – The Brown County Suicide Prevention Coalition will
present QPR, a suicide prevention class in the Fellowship Hall on Wednesday, February 8th from
6-7:30pm. QPR stands for Question, Persuade, and Refer - 3 simple steps that anyone can learn to
help save a life from suicide. Just as people trained in CPR help save thousands of lives each year,
people trained in QPR learn how to recognize the warning signs of a suicide crisis and how to
question, persuade, and refer someone to help. Each year thousands of Americans, like you, are
saying "Yes" to saving the life of a friend, colleague, sibling, or neighbor. Confirmation students will
be attending this presentation during class time. All parents, members of the congregation and the
community are welcome to attend. RSVPs are appreciated but are not required at (920) 468-4065.

with the office on event and advertising signs. Donations are already coming in! Contact the office at
468-4065 if you are interested in heading or co-chairing this great fundraising event. A new organizer
has been found for the Kids’ Only Sale; more details to come soon on the date and volunteers.
