Note from Pastor Paul

Recently we had significant damage done to our new copy machine by someone, with church keys, who also left the doors open and the lights on. Behind this occurrence is the fact that, in the past, keys to the church were issued at large. There are presently more than seventy keys in circulation. In view of the recent incident our Church Council has decided to re-key some of the locks and tighten the oversight of church keys. For now it simply means that some of you who still have keys from past years on the council or were given a key for another reason will discover they won’t work anymore. More details will follow after they are worked out at our next council meeting. Also, the copy machine has been repaired. In the future, please do not use the machine without authorization and training from Kelly Strosin, Office Administrator.

Meanwhile, during the “Safer at Home” Order:

· Our Savior’s building and church offices are closed.

· Staff will mainly work from home and occasionally onsite. Voice mail and email messages will continue to be checked frequently. Feel free to contact us! Pastor Paul Ihlenfeld: 414-861-7285 / pcihlenfeld@yahoo.com. Deacon Sherie Kruse: 262-334-0461 / skruse@oslcwb.org Kelly Strosin, Office Administrator: 414-334-9551 / office@oslcwb.org

· There is still a building that needs to be heated and maintained, staff that will need to be paid, so we’d appreciate your continued financial support through this difficult time. Offerings can be mailed in (Our Savior’s Lutheran Church, 1044 W. Silverbrook Dr., West Bend, WI 53095), or you may opt to sign up for Simply Giving by contacting Kelly at 414-334-9551.

With prayers for a short duration to this pandemic and our separation from one another,

Peace and Good Health,

Pastor Paul
