Six Perspectives

bible class 6 perspectives

You are invited to another Mini Bible Study Series on Sunday October 24 and 31 at 9:15 a.m. titled, Six Perspectives in The Lord’s Prayer. Jesus was setting out to distinguish his approach to prayer from religious traditions or appearance of piety. He ushered in a new dispensation the disciples needed a new mindset to match this dispensation.
Matthew 5:5-9
5 “And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. 6 But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. 7 And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. 8 Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.
9 “This, then, is how you should pray:
The Lord’s Prayer is also known as The Our Father.
We will focus on six crucial perspectives of the Lord’s Prayer. What is the first perspective? It is not Our Father who art in Heaven!
The group will meet in Luther Hall’s Lakeview Room.

Dear Saint Community,

This weekend, one of our school families suffered a devastating loss.  Carlos Vazquez, brother to school parent Ms. Melissa Medrano, and supportive uncle to her four children - German (8th grade); Gavriel (4th); Galvin (3rd); and Jacinth (K) -  died Saturday.  Several of our school families have been in touch with them this weekend, offering help and support.  Out of those conversations came the realization that helping with Carlos' funeral expenses would make a huge difference.  School parent Mrs. Camila Natale immediately set up a gofundme page for that express purpose.  If you can help in any way, please click on this link-  Carlos Vazquez - Celebration of Life.

There will be a memorial service at Our Savior Lutheran in the coming weeks.  When we have more details, I will share them.  And throughout this time, please keep the family in your prayers for comfort and strength.

Come and be encourage by the grand scale...

of what a heavenly Father gives to all people

Although the word “canyon” is not actually used in the Bible, these deep, river gorges of God’s creation are the awe-inspiring metaphors for a new preaching series about the challenges and blessings of life. You are invited to join us for worship at 8 a.m. or 10:30 a.m. on Sundays this month for a tour of majestic canyons in God’s Words. Come and be encourage by the grand scale of what a heavenly Father gives to all people.

Teacher Runs for Cystic Fibrosis

Trisha DePasquale, Kindergarten teacher at Our Savior, is running in the New York City Marathon on Sunday, November 7th. She is one of 75 members of Team Boomer, a program of the Boomer Esiason Foundation, which contributes to helping people with cystic fibrosis live longer, healthier, and more fulfilling lives. All of the proceeds go towards scholarships and medical treatments for CF patients, and research for the disease.
OSL students and staff are helping Trisha get across the finish line, and have raised more than $600 at the halfway point with chapel donations.
Church members can contribute to Team Boomer’s goal by visiting the following link:
