…Our Local Community

Food Pantry

Our Savior’s Food Pantry is available to help those in need within our congregation and the community.  Food is distributed on Tuesday from 9am to 11am and Thursday from 1pm to 3pm.  Our Savior’s Lutheran Church’s Food Pantry served 2500 families in 2015!  The pantry is open to everyone regardless of where you live.  An ID with your picture and your current address is all that is required to get food.  Holiday meats are distributed for Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter. Bread is donated randomly and is available to anyone throughout the week or weekend
 

Yarn Over Missions

A group of knitters and crocheters of all ages, meets the third Saturday of each month at 10:30am in Peter’s Hall. We knit/crochet hats, gloves, scarves, mittens, prayer shawls, sweaters, socks, fidget bears and twiddle muffs which are distributed to World Vision, Operation Gratitude, VITAS Healthcare, The Crisis Center for South Suburbia, The Southside Pregnancy Center, P.A.D.S., and others in need. 2,281 items were made and given in 2016!   We accept yarn, knitting needles, crochet hooks and monetary donations (used to purchase Lion Brand Homespun yarn for prayer shawls).  We do not sell any of our items. Our meetings are very uplifting and inspiring as we work together each month. We have several persons who are unable to attend meetings but knit/crochet items and donate them to us. Thoughts and patterns are exchanged as well as helpful hints while each of the women work on the project of their choice. For those who desire to learn to knit and crochet – we will happily share our talents.  If you can hand-stitch, you can help create prayer patches. The demand is great so please share your skill and time.
