Beautiful Savior Lutheran Church E News


May 6, 2019

Happy May, Beautiful Savior Friends!

Beautiful Savior Lutheran Church ENews

We have made our way from the ashes of Lent to the Alleluias of Easter! Those Alleluias then turn into actions that are the responses of gratitude to our Lord Christ for His gift of redemption which He completed on Good Friday and Easter. Turning Alleluias into Action is our theme at Beautiful Savior this May, and I invite you to be a part of it!

That is what this edition of  ENews is all about. Take some time to check out the opportunities for worship and service this month and during the summer months to come. From the Kingdom Impact Celebration weekend on May 18/19 to the CDC Spring Program and Graduation on May 22 to a Family Camping Weekend on May 31 – June 2 to CDC Summer Programs to VBS schedule and registration information in preparation for August 5 – 9, etc., everything is designed to connect people with God’s love and to help them live as committed followers of Christ. In other words – to help us turn our Alleluias into Action!

I am grateful for the opportunity to turn Alleluias into Action with you!

Pastor Tom Stoebig

One Giant Thank You

We’ve been busy for the first third of the year. Mission trips to India.  Relief trips to Houston. Various drives for Good in the ‘Hood, SoleCare for Souls, and Robbinsdale Women’s Center. Sharing Jesus through the Easter Experience. Sponsoring children through Compassion International. Preparing meals through Meals of Encouragement and for the children at Trinity First. And so many other daily, weekly, and monthly volunteer opportunities.

The point I want to make is to simply say, “Thank You.”  Without you none of these would be possible. Thank you for responding to Christ’s calling to serve and to love in the same ways He served and loves us!

Lord’s Blessings,

Pastor Joe Behnke

Spiritual Care


NEW Support Group: DivorceCare for Kids

DivorceCare for Kids is a biblically based program for children (ages 5–12) struggling with the hurt and pain of divorce and separation. This support group is NEW to Beautiful Savior and will start in September as DivorceCare begins for their parents/adults going through divorce.

Please prayerfully consider whom you might invite to attend and whether God is calling you to serve these precious, hurting children.


Facilities & More



Set Up Your Online Donation Account Today

May is here! With it comes cabin season for many of our members.   This means many of you will begin your weekend routines away at the cabin. The church takes on a “summer vibe” as people are actively enjoying the lakes and beauty of Minnesota.

I’m sure a lot of people don’t even realize that without them there are fewer people in the seats for summer worship.  Not only does this affect attendance, but without faithful stewards all year round, this has an impact on financial contributions to the church.

Please consider setting up a weekly or monthly gift through our secure online giving program or via our Give+ app. By setting up an automated gift you are continuing to support the mission and ministry of Beautiful Savior with your offerings through the summer months.

Click here to set up your secure online Vanco account.
Or install the Give+ app on your Apple or Android device.

Thank you for financially and prayerfully supporting
Beautiful Savior Lutheran Church.
