Our Savior’s T-Shirts are now available to order. This is a way to visually represent our church to the people we meet in our neighborhood. Each time you put on the shirt, you can remind yourself of the call to “put on Christ” and serve as a witness as empowered by the Holy Spirit. You may order the shirts on line (through the church facebook page) or by using an order form available in the narthex. The cost is $15 a shirt. Pay later when the shirt arrives.
Please contact Tom Roemke (518/669-0790 or email@example.com) if you have any announcements to include in the weekly letters
