    Our Saviour's offers a vibrant array of mission and ministry opportunities for those of all ages. Check out what some of our groups have been up to lately!

    • Our Saviour's contributes $14,000 to loaves & fishes

      Pastor Brian dropped off a $14,000 check from OSLC at Loaves & Fishes' Aurora hub this past #GivingTuesday. All Giving Tuesday donations to Loaves & Fishes were matched up to $105,000 by BMO Harris Bank and other generous Loaves & Fishes donors. Nancy Couch, Our Saviour's member and vice chair of programs and operations at Loaves & Fishes, was on hand to greet Pastor Brian and shared this update: "We served 2,100 families with Thanksgiving meals last week. We could not do it without without financial resources and enthusiastic volunteers. The need in our four-county area is great. The OSLC volunteer team keeps growing. If you would like to join us, please check out loaves-fishes.org and click on 'New Volunteer.' We'd love to have you join us."  

    • Our Saviour's to host share remembrance service Dec. 6

      Our Saviour's will host a holiday remembrance service coordinated by the SHARE Groups of Edward-Elmhurst Health at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 6, for families grieving perinatal loss. The service, taking place in the Sanctuary on the Our Saviour's Campus, is open to anyone who has experienced miscarriage, stillbirth or neonatal loss, whether their loss was recent or years ago. Special thanks to Terry Thompson and the Women's Chorale for generously sharing their time and talents in providing music for this memorable and meaningful service, which returns this year for the first time since 2019.

    • Quilt and fabric donations help baby care ministry

      From Betty Landorf, co-chair of Baby Care: "Marilyn Lichtenstein donated 20-plus quilts last week on behalf of the WEGO quilting guild. The talented women in this group have spent hours creating beautiful and creative baby-size quilts that will be used in the Baby Care project. Ann Henriksen’s friend, Marilyn Lichtenstein, also personally donated a full box of fabric to be used for the project. Additionally, she has recruited several more guilds to help us in reaching our goal of 1,000 quilts made for Baby Care."

    • Haitifest raises more than $15,000

      From Nicole Waite, founder of Haiti Scholars: "This week we celebrate the blessing of our students returning to school after months of unrest, gang violence, and uncertainty. We celebrate the success of HaitiFest as we raised over $15,000 to help serve valuable programs. It was an evening where local volunteers and our partners in Haiti came together to bring awareness, community, and hope to children with unimaginable life circumstances and hardships. Thank you to all who supported this event by volunteering, donating, or supporting our mission to make quality education possible for children in Haiti."
