Please Save Your Used Stamps:

What a simple way to support the LWML !
Overflow Seating in the Fellowship Hall: 

   Beautiful Savior now has live audio and video during worship services available in the fellowship hall.  If you have not been coming to church out of concern the sanctuary might be “too full”, the fellowship hall is another option for worship at the church.  See photo to the right of what the screen looks like during a worship service.  (Click on the picture to enlarge it.) 

   While in the fellowship hall, please remember to allow for social distancing.  Face masks are encouraged.  Also, please be respectful of others who are in there to hear the worship service.

We are studying “Genesis: A Book of Beginnings“.  This study is open to both men and women.  No registration is required.  Please join us in the fellowship hall on Tuesdays at 7 pm.
Congregational Memory Verse Challenge:
The church confesses to Christ, “You have the words of eternal life” (John 6:68).  The church is encouraged to “Let the Word of Christ dwell in you richly…” (Colossians 3:16).  Psalm 1 teaches us to meditate on God’s Word day and night.  It is our great opportunity and joy to read and study God’s Word.  One beneficial practice is to memorize the Scriptures and, in so doing, to meditate on it.
The LCMS invites everyone to join together memorizing a verse each week.  Click here for this month’s verses.

ND District 1-1-1 Mission Giving:  (Going on Now)
The ND District has adopted a new voluntary model for funding the missions of the District.  Every baptized member of the Body of Christ in your congregation, from the baptized baby to the oldest member is involved. This funding model is based on the belief that “there is power and strength in many giving a little.”  Loving our neighbor includes caring for their spiritual well-being. The need exists for God’s people to come together in support of missions that are bearing kingdom fruit. In addition to each congregation’s regular giving to the District, the 1-1-1 funds stay in the District and support District missions. God’s generosity is not lacking! Where the Word of God is taught, and the Sacraments are administered according to their institution by Christ, there are ample resources to do this ministry. A special collection box and brochure with more information is located in the narthex.

Restore His House Capital Campaign:  (going on now)
The “Restore His House” 3 year capital campaign is underway and off to a good start, but has a long way to go.  As was reported at the June 2018 voters’ meeting, our building is in need of a number of repairs and updates that are a normal part of taking care of a property as it ages.  Our goal for these projects is $300,000 over the next three years to meet these building needs.  In addition, we will donate 10% to Grace Lutheran School during that same time frame for a total campaign goal of $330,000.  
    A mailing was sent out in October 2018 with details about the Restore His House Capital Campaign, giving you the opportunity to make your commitment to the Campaign.  If you did not make a commitment yet, it if not too late.  You can make donations to the campaign anytime by writing “Capital Campaign” on the memo line of your check or by donating thru the online giving portal.
   We ask that you prayerfully consider how God has blessed you and what you may be able to commit to this campaign.
