Everything tends to slow down in New England in the summertime, as we all take the opportunity to be outside on the beautiful, warm days of summer.
Our Savior’s is no different – things slow down, people go on vacation, and our pastor usually goes for a week or two to work with the kids at Camp Calumet, our synod’s summer camp in New Hampshire. (By the way, Camp Calumet offers plenty of space for anyone in a beautiful environment that’s also quite Lutheran – including Bible study for adults, day camp for children, gorgeous scenery and lots of possibilities for outdoor adventures, and Sunday worship! Check them out here.)
However, things don’t slow down completely – we still have plenty going on here at OSLC, and because our numbers are a bit smaller in the summertime, it’s a great time to join us or start attending again! Here’s what we’ve got going on.
BEER & HYMNS
I mean – who wouldn’t want to hang out with these great guys?!
Beer & Hymns doesn’t break for summer! Our next event is Monday, June 17, at 6PM at Sok’s Bar (30 Bridge Street, South Hadley). This event is all it says it is and nothing more: beer + hymns. There’s no sermon or obligatory invitation to church – we just sing, drink beer, and enjoy the good company.
Note: If you don’t drink beer, are in recovery, or just don’t enjoy alcohol, we’d still love to welcome you. Sok’s has a diverse drink menu with alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages available. Not all of our attendees drink beer or other alcoholic beverages, and drinking beer isn’t a prerequisite to enjoying your time with us.
Bottom line: come if you’re comfortable, sing with us, and drink whatever you want!
OUR SAVIOR’S CAMPING WEEKEND
“Get in the picture, Ken!”
Every year, Our Savior’s goes camping! This year, we’re going camping on August 23-25 at Country Aire Campground in Charlemont, Massachusetts, just off the Mohawk trail. You can check out the campground here, and you can call to make a reservation of a campsite or RV site.
If camping isn’t for you, you can still participate! Every year, we have a brief worship service with communion followed by a famous Lutheran potluck. That’ll be on Saturday, August 24, around 5PM.
Our brief worship service out in God’s gorgeous creation, often complete with campfire!
AND FINALLY, WORSHIP!
We’ll be here, every single Sunday, at 10:15am with Good News and communion.
Come see us!
Note: There’s no 9AM adult ed or children’s Sunday school during summer.
