Pentecost derives its name from the Jewish festival celebrating the harvest and the giving of the law on Mount Sinai fifty days after Passover. Fifty days after Easter, we celebrate the Holy Spirit as God’s presence within and among us. In Acts the Spirit arrives in rushing wind and flame, bringing God’s presence to all people. Paul reminds us that though we each have different capacities, we are unified in the Spirit that equips us with these gifts. Jesus breathes the Holy Spirit on his disciples, empowering them to forgive sin. We celebrate that we too are given the breath of the Holy Spirit and sent out to proclaim God’s redeeming love to all the world.

Important Notice:

In the best interest and the safety of our members and visitors, Our Saviour has canceled the Worship Service and all church related activities until further notice.  The church is closed pursuant to Governor Murphy's Order.  If you need to speak with Pastor Rachel, please call the church office at 609-368-3031 or her cell phone at 609-661-1621 and leave a message.  We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

The Coronavirus Crisis

Our Saviour, like all other churches, has had to close its doors because of the coronavirus crisis.  It is unlikely that we will be able to open them any time soon.  And in a time of crisis and uncertainly, we need the solace of our faith more than ever. 

We are working to find ways to reach out to our members and friends and to provide spiritual guidance and support.  We will be using One Call and reaching out via email.  We will also be contacting people with personal phone calls.  And we are exploring internet platforms that will allow us to join together online, if not in person. 

We will use our website and Facebook page to reach out to our members.  Please bookmark our website, www.stoneharborlutheran.com and/or search for our Facebook page, Our Saviour Lutheran Church Stone Harbor.  We will work to keep them updated and helpful in these difficult times. 

The youth of our church are ready to help anyone who needs support.  And Pastor Rachel is only a phone call away.  Her cell number is 609-661-1621. 

We know that Christ is with us and that His love will sustain us.  He is our Shepherd and He will guide and keep us.

Jean Hunter, Church Council President
