Thank you from The Yeager & Thoms Families

We are deeply grateful for the many expressions of love and condolence in the passing of our beloved Floyd Yeager. Your caring words and gestures have been the blessings of brothers and sisters on life's journey with us - all the way to God's "Promised Land."

We welcome you to join us at the Memorial Service for Floyd on Saturday, September 18, at 10:30 am.

We thank you from our hearts. God bless you.

Summer Sunday School Assembly Team - A Heartfelt Thank You!!

Our Faith Kits are in the hands of 118 children, thanks to the focused, steadfast work of 50 creative, generous volunteers who worked behind the scenes for over 350 hours to make our Kids Ministry Summer Take-Home Faith Kits a reality!

Who received the kits?

  • 89 children, grandchildren, and friends of BSLC

  • 13 children from our church neighbors across the street at St. Stephen’s Episcopal

  • 7 children from Good Samaritan Lutheran in Pontiac, and

  • 9 children from Micah 6 Church in Pontiac

Our kits featured a 4 lesson study of Baby Moses and a 4 lesson study of David and Goliath. Each kit included family devotions and prayer, bible study with discussion questions and lesson-related crafts and activities. Our theme for the summer is “Into the Unknown” … where we strived to make God’s love and protection for us known! Click HERE to learn more about our kits.

Tanzania Ministry Liaison, Nancy Dakin

For many years, BSLC has had a support partnership with Gendabi Lutheran Church in Tanzania. We support the Gendabi financially and both congregations support each other spiritually. Part of that support is an exchange of communications several times a year with Pastor Magang at Gendabi, updating the activities of the two congregations. A big thank you to Nancy Dakin, who is stepping away from this ministry, but served faithfully for many years in this capacity.

Thank you from Greg Kaminski

I was pleasantly surprised at the show of recognition from the congregation on Sunday, May 2, 2021 for my volunteer work as Financial Secretary of Beautiful Savior Lutheran Church (BSLC). I want to thank the congregation for their support and warm wishes. It has been a pleasure and rewarding experience to serve BSLC these past few years.

Blessings to all,

Gregory Kaminski

Former Financial Secretary

Beautiful Savior Lutheran Church

We would again like to thank Greg for his many years of service behind the scenes. Greg served in this capacity from 2003-2006 and then again from 2014-2021. His dedication to his work has been inspiring.

We would also like to welcome Mary Beardslee as our new volunteer Financial Secretary. We look forward to working with you.

Thank You For Feeding the Hungry

Thank you, BSLC Congregation for all of your hard work this week and for the financial contributions you made to help us purchase the necessary food for this project. If you were on the prep team, driving team or planning team, you made a difference in the lives of the South Oakland Shelter clients this week. A huge thank you to James Kaiser who, with our volunteers, catered some amazing meals for them. It was a blessing to see all of the love poured into every "from scratch" dish that was prepared and they enjoyed things such as shrimp & grits, shepherd's pie and a picnic day along with dessert treats made by our youth kids and some of our gifted bakers. Also thank you to Nancy Geik who headed this project up and spent weeks making sure every detail was in place. To the entire team - know that people felt the love of Jesus through your hard work.
