These are the items that are most needed: LARGE (double size) cans of Tuna or Chicken -we need lots! Bear Creek Soups (Chicken based if possible) but whatever works! (lighter than cans in the bags, and more servings from the packages ;) Packages/Boxes of Instant Rice (like medium sz boxes) Packages of Instant Mashed Potatoes (no flavors if possible, just basic mashed potatoes) CREAMY Peanut Butter (18 oz) Raisins (1 pound boxes) Boxes of COLD Cereal (NON-sugary) Corn Flakes, Rice Krispies, Cheerios) Cans Brown Beans Boxes Mac N Cheese
Basics for Local Kids:Hopefully we will be able to do the collection for this program in the fall before they distribute the clothing in October. Remember everything will have to be in good condition, clean, with all zippers in working order. kids winter gear: coats, snow pants, boots, hats, mittens/gloves, scarves. If you are stuck at home cleaning out closets, and finding winter wear that you no longer use and is in good condition, or if you have the opportunity to purchase new winter wear on clearance, that would be greatly appreciated. In hopes that we will be able to worship at Our Savior's in May, we will have a collection box located in the narthex throughout the month. Articles must be clean, no rips or tears, with working zippers. These donated items will be stored until fall when they will be given to needy families right here in Pierce County.

Adult Forum: The Adult Forum meets on the first, third, and fifth Sundays of the month from 10:30 am to 11:00 am to encounter how our faith helps us understand the world around us. We welcome lively discussion to seek understanding on topics that interest the class. (next meeting is unknown at this time.) Assisting Minister Workshop: Martin Luther said, among other things, that we are a “priesthood of all believers.” Before, it was only the priest and the deacons who were allowed to approach the altar. Luther saw this as one more way the Church hierarchy tried to separate the people from God. Anyone, he asserted, can approach the altar, just as anyone can approach God. Many churches have responded to this by having a congregation member serve as an assisting minister, helping to lead the service with the pastor. The presence of an assisting minister is a reminder that we are all welcome to come to God, and that we don’t have to be an ordained minister to lead in worship. I will be living out that assertion of Luther’s this fall, and I invite you to participate in the position of Assisting Minister. If you aren’t sure what that is or what that entails, there will be several information meetings (each stands on its own; it’s not a series) where I will lead a discussion on what the duties and expectations of an Assisting Minister are. If the Spirit moves you, please let me know if you feel it’s something you can do in our service together. The next Meeting TBA.
