"HELP THE HOUSEBOAT FIRE VICTIMS!"
HELP THE HAVEN HOUSEBOATERS Fundraiser February 27th at the Polish-American Hall was a big success! It raised approximately $10,000, but the overall donations exceed $24,000 to date. Many thanks to all who participated in this special event in the Star Light Ballroom. Dave Franklin organized this event and also sends a thank you to the community for coming out to help some of its members who are in need. This is why he loves Port Washington. Port Cares.

Worship: Who We Are
There's a place for everyone at Our Savior to be involved and make new friends through small group ministries: the Altar Guild, Grace Guild, the Ushers, the Lectors and Assisting Ministers, the Choirs, the Parish Orchestra, Kids' Klub, the annual Harvest Fair, fellowship events, and committees for the congregation's life and mission. Parish life and ministry depend solely upon voluntary giving by members, guests and friends.
An elevator and access ramp are available for entering and exiting the building. Refreshments are usually served after worship on Sunday. In warmer weather, the church is air-conditioned for your comfort.
Membership is voluntary and personal. Persons join when they express the desire to affiliate. Adults may join formally the congregation by either a letter of membership transfer from another Christian congregation or by adult Confirmation.
Baptisms and weddings are conducted as needed. A church wedding requires a couple to spend a period of time preparing for marriage in consultation with the pastor.
The sacrament of Holy Communion is celebrated with this understanding: that the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ are truly present in, with, and under the bread and wine; and, that the penitent receive the full forgiveness of all their sins. All baptized Christians who, in good conscience, can receive with this understanding are invited to partake.
