On May 27
Our Sister Parish relationship with Fe y Esperanza Lutheran Church began in 2004. Three delegations from Our Savior’s have visited them in EI Salvador, 2004, 2010 and 2013. Scholarship support began in 2007 and has steadily increased in participation for the children of the church.
Education support has made the students, families, communities and church stronger. We recently learned that Bishop Gomez and Pastor Abelina were coming to the US to attend the Assembly of the Siena Pacific Synod in California. We extended the invitation for them to come to Our Savior’s when we learned they were traveling through Chicago. With coordination of the ELCA Global Missions, the Salvadoran Lutheran Synod and the Greater Milwaukee Synod, travel plans were change so they could come to West Bend.
Their time is bries They an’ive in Milwaukee on May 24 and will be at Our Savior’s on Sunday, May 27. They leave for California on Monday, May 28.
Events on May 27 will be worship together at 8:15 and 10:15, fellowship between services and a light lunch together at l1:30. Services will be joyful celebrations of ministry together. You do not have to be a sponsor to attend – you are all invited. So please come to welcome our guests.
This is a great opportunity for you to learn from Bishop Gomez and Pastor Abelina about the Lutheran churches in El Salvador and to hear about previous delegation experiences.
