Prayer is central to what we do at Our Savior’s.
The community at Our Savior’s prays weekly in worship for members and friends of the congregation who desire support and healing. A list is published with the specific need for prayer, so that members may pray for the people on the list during the week. If you have someone to add to the prayer list, call the office at (860) 667-2291.
On Thursdays at 12:30, all are welcome to gather for adult education classes. We are currently studying biblical readings from the narrative lectionary.
Sunday school is from ages preschool through grade 6. Classes are during our 10:00 AM worship service on Sunday mornings. Our experienced teachers lead mixed age groups through a curriculum based on scriptures over the course of the year. Pastor engages young and old alike with a children's sermon during worship, and children are invited to remain in worship with their families or head to Sunday School. All children return in time to join with their families for Holy Communion
