Prison Card Ministry
Since 2003, members of Our Saviour's have been collecting unused greeting cards and sending them to prisons. This is very helpful to those who want to connect with family and friends. Cards aren't just handed out to those who would like them. The inmates have to work hard to earn money to buy cards to keep in touch with their loved ones.
Women of the ELCA sorts, boxes and sends the cards. In 2013, they sent 21 pounds of cards to Taycheedah Correctional Insitute, a women's prison in Fond du lac, and another 21 pounds to the Jackson Correctional Institute, Black River Falls, WI. In addition to unused cards with envelopes, note paper, and note cards are also sent.
Prayer Shawl Ministry
Members of Our Saviour's knit and crochet prayer shawls. This ministry is not just for the sick or terminally ill. A prayer shawl can be given to someone that you want to know is wrapped not only in God's love but your love and and concern as well.
These shawls are made with prayers woven in by the knitters and crocheters for the recipient. Perhaps you know someone who has recently lost their job or a loved one - give them a prayer shawl.
Donations are given to local food banks throughout the year.

We share Christ's love with each other through worship and youth & adult education of our congregational members. Our community and the world receives Christ's love through projects we complete that are described below.
