Worship with Our Bishop
Sunday, June 21, 2015
9:00 AM
Our Savior’s Lutheran Church
Mission Statement
Using God’s Word as a foundation, Our
Savior’s Lutheran shall, through
meaningful worship, study, prayer and
mission outreach, provide a Christcentered atmosphere of enthusiasm,
support, sensitivity and openness to all
people.
Bishop Steven Delzer will update us on the
work of our synod and preach at our regular
worship service.
God’s people find a place of belonging,
God’s people devoted to seek God’s purposes,
God’s people committed to compassionate caring.
Bishop Delzer was installed as Bishop of the
Southeastern Minnesota Synod in 2013. He
and his wife Donita have 3 adult children and 5
grandchildren. Prior to his role as Bishop,
Bishop Delzer served in congregations in
Maryland, Missouri, Iowa, and Minnesota. In
his spare time, he enjoys running, biking,
tennis, skiing, reading, and Minnesota Gopher
Football! The synod-wide "Enough Food for All"
initiative is very close to Bishop Delzer's heart.
Didn’t make it to church this week? Watch a
recording, of Our Savior’s Lutheran Church
service, at the Spring Valley Senior Living: 3:00
PM on Mondays or on KING4 local cable

Welcome to OSL, Bishop Delzer!
Do you have any interesting stories,
anecdotes, or upcoming notices? This is
your newsletter also. Send your information to
Renee via email at
[email protected], bring it in to the
office, or mail it to the church address. Thank
you.
The wild, wacky world of the
interim period
We're in the interim--the time between pastors.
And it is definitely a crazy time for OSL But
also, hopefully, it is time of joy and deepening
trust is our Lord. God has blessed worshipping
Lutherans (German and Norwegian) in Spring
Valley for over 150 years. Remember Psalm
121: "The Lord will not let your foot slip; he who
watches over you... will neither slumber nor
sleep."
Here's what's happening:
1. Going with what many say is my
strongest suit, I continue to demonstrate
how little new pastors know when they
enter a community. This will be the
same for the incoming permanent
pastor. But we will be ready for him or
her and make the transition as smooth
as possible! Communication is the key.
We have already started monthly staff
and executive committee meetings.
Ministry teams are also scheduling
meetings so the pastor can attend.
These practices may not be needed
once the new pastor settles in. But they
may be a big help for the new pastor as
he or she gets acquainted with the
people and work of the church. Along
the same lines, we will be updating job
descriptions and personnel procedures
over the next few months to ensure an
easy transition time for all the OSL staff.
2. Pastor Betsy Dartt has joined the staff at
one third time. As King Solomon (Israel's
wisest king) says, "Two are better than
one, because they have good return for
their labor (Eccl. 4:9)." Her focus is
visitation, family care at end of life and
Saturday worship. We don't completely
understand what the staffing needs of
OSL will be for the long term. However,
it is quite clear that the things Pastor
Betsy will be focusing on are extremely
important areas of ministry for
our congregation. With her help we will
keep these areas of ministry strong
throughout the interim time and beyond.
Welcome and God Bless your time here,
Pastor Betsy.
3. “Worship the Lord in gladness, come
before God with joyful songs…give
thanks to the Lord and praise God’s
name. (Ps. 100).” As a general rule,
interim pastors do not change worship.
But, this summer, sure enough, we are
going to change worship. The worship
staff, worship commission and I have
been trying to listen to those in the pews
in order to make our worship a
meaningful time of drawing close to
God. The word we have received is the
addition of more liturgical music and the
consistent use of confession and
forgiveness would be helpful in
furthering the worship experience. So,
we will be moving worship in that
direction over the next few weeks. Your
input is very important. Please contact a
member of the worship commission,
worship staff, or me with any comments
(positive or negative).
4. Speaking of input, our council is
expecting to appoint a transition team at
our June meeting. The main work of this
group will be to fill out the Ministry Site
Profile; the forms that describe our
congregation and the gifts we would like
to see in a pastor. The task force’s first
job will be to determine what information
it needs and how that information should
be ascertained (e.g. written survey, town
meeting, small groups, etc.). There will
be several opportunities to provide
input. And the team will need all it can
get! So please participate when the time
arises. Remember the proverb: “The
plans of the diligent lead to profit.”
(Proverbs 21:5)
Our Lord is “compassionate and gracious, slow
to anger and abounding in love (Psalm 103).
Let us rejoice this summer in the love of our
Lord even during the crazy time between
pastors. Let us commit OSL to God’s care and
direction.
Pastor Jim

NEWSLETTER DEADLINE
The Newsletter deadline is the 17th of each
month. Any articles or memorials received after
this date will show up in the following month’s
newsletter.
To the OSL family:
Congratulations!! To the
recipients of this year’s Our Savior’s
Scholarship: Hannah Pruter, Rachel
Harder, Amy Welch, and Marcus Plaehn.
To Our Church Family,
We thank each &
every one of you for
the beautiful cards,
money, phone calls,
well wishes, &
donations to the church
in honor of our 50th. We are so lucky to have a
community of friends in the church & outside.
God Bless Each & Everyone,
Boyd & Bonnie Grabau
Many, many thanks for your
very generous offering to
help us rebuild after our
barn fire. We are grateful
for each one of you and
your care and concern over
the last few months. Clean up is going very
well. One building that was partially damaged
has already been repaired. Our plan is to build
a pole shed which will house equipment in
place of the dairy barn. Also, we hope to add a
portable cow/calf shelter that we will be able to
move with the cattle to their winter paddocks.
We are currently on the "list" with our
contractors. The building should go up later this
summer. We give thanks to our Lord for his
gracious hand through the entire ordeal. We
also thank him for our new Christian friends in
Spring Valley. May God grant you a blessed
summer.
Jim, Tara, Annie, Fred and Christina Scaife
P.S. You may have noticed my coat in the early
morning news cast. We've received a lot of
duct tape from friends and family. With this new
duct tape that coat ought to last another 5
years.
Please note!
Please remember to have family notify the
church office if you are in the hospital. The
privacy data laws do not allow the hospital to
notify the church of your admittance.

Lasagna, Chicken noodle soups, peanut butter,

Lutheran Immigration and Refugee
Service http://lirs.org/
We are a church that does God’s work in
the world and in local communities
pursuing justice, peace and human
dignity for and with all people.
In partnership with Lutheran
congregations and Lutheran social
ministry organizations, Lutheran
Immigration and Refugee Service has
welcomed more than 379,000 refugees
to the United States since 1939. This
ongoing partnership and work is driven
by God’s love for all people and a vision
for congregations to be welcoming and
generous centers for mission and
ministry.
The work of the ELCA through Lutheran
Immigration and Refugee Service
includes responding to people caught in
conflict and facing persecution,
advocating for their needs and interests,
helping people access resources for basic
human needs, working with foster care
programs for minors, legal assistance,
developing new and innovative service
programs and partnerships, and much
more. Join us in this courageous work of
serving and loving our neighbors in the
name of Jesus Christ.
Since the influx of orphan children began
to cross our border into Texas, the LIRS
has provided 500 children per month
with food, medicine and safe shelter. On
a more local issue, the LIRS and Catholic
Charities were the primary caregivers
during the crisis that resulted for families
during the raid on the packing plants in
Postville IA in 2008. The LIRS has also
been the chief organization working in
refugee camps that ultimately resulted in
the immigration of South Sudanese to
southeaster Minnesota and the six
Sudanese worshipping communities in
our synod.
Summer Worship Service Schedule
Continuing through September 6, 2015 (Labor
Day weekend), the Sunday Worship schedule
will be one service at 9:00 AM. The Saturday
service will continue to be at 5:30 PM.
Savior’s Lutheran Church Endowment Fund
was established in 1995 to enhance the
mission outreach of our Church apart from the
general operation of the congregation. The
Endowment Fund is overseen by a committee
of OSL members and only a percentage of
money earned above the principle can be
used. A large portion of the Funding has come
from estate bequests. The Fund is under
management of investment representative
Debby Fugleberg at Home Federal Investment
Services. If you are interested in including this
Fund in your Estate Planning or ongoing
support to our congregation please contact
Debby for an appointment.

The service group lists are of people in the congregation who are asked to bring items for special events
at the church. The lists have gone through some
changes to try to even out the lists with people who
can be available to respond in service. For a number
of reasons, there are people who are not included on
the lists (shut-in, live out of town, have indicated a
desire not to be contacted, etc.) Thank you to all the
people in Our Savior’s who live out their faith in
caring support of the ministries of the church.

at the church. The lists have gone through some
changes to try to even out the lists with people who
can be available to respond in service. For a number
of reasons, there are people who are not included on
the lists (shut-in, live out of town, have indicated a
desire not to be contacted, etc.) Thank you to all the
people in Our Savior’s who live out their faith in
caring support of the ministries of the church.
