October 2021

Church of the Savior meets for weekly worship as well as special events in the top floor sanctuary in our building. Worshipers are welcome to attend without masks; however, we encourage those who have not been vaccinated against COVID-19 to wear face coverings as a courtesy to others; and those who are vaccinated may also wish to do so in order to protect others from infection. Our weekly worship is also livestreamed here every Sunday at 10 a.m. for those who need or prefer to join us virtually. Archived services (as well as other COTS presentations) are available for viewing at any time on our YouTube channel here.

Children’s church is available every Sunday. In addition preschoolers and toddlers continue to be welcome to visit the “children’s corner” at the rear of the sanctuary during Sunday worship.

COTS offers three midweek Bible study groups:

There is a Zoom study of Mark’s Gospel every Wednesday evening at 7 p.m. If you’d like to join, please contact Pastor Dennett at dbuettner@cotsambridge.org for a link. Or, you may watch archived studies any time at your convenience on our YouTube channel here.

Also on Wednesday evening a video Bible study on the Gospel of Matthew is offered for the residents of the Maplewood Personal Care Home. Contact Deacon Laura Wicker at lwicker@verizon.net for more information

On Thursday evenings at 7 p.m. there is a video Bible study of the Acts of the Apostles, at 7:00 p.m. Again, please contact Deacon Laura Wicker at lwicker@verizon.net for more information or for a link.

Twelve Step groups continue to meet in the Fellowship Hall in the basement of our building Tuesday noon and Sunday and Thursday evenings. For more information please contact your group leader. If you are new to the Twelve Step movement, and would like to be connected to a group, please email us at cots@cotsambridge.org and we will put you in contact with one of the meeting facilitators.

Church of the Savior continues to serve the Kyrie Cafe lunch on the final Sunday of each month.  The next meal will be served Sunday September 26, beginning at noon. During the current surge in the pandemic we will continue to distribute the lunch in the parking lot on the Merchant Street side of the Church of the Savior building. We anticipate resuming in-person dining later this fall, God and the pandemic willing!

The meetings of the Village Church at the Economy-Crestview Recreation Center continue to be suspended until further notice, with weekly prayer walking in the neighborhood on Tuesday evenings instead.   For more information contact Pastor Jason Wilson at villagechurchambridge@gmail.com or follow the Village Church on Facebook.
