   What:  Trunk-or-Treat! Park your car in the COTS north parking lot, pop open the trunk and decorate it like crazy (think fun, not scary - it's for kids). Put on your own great costume and pass out candy to the trick-or-treaters who are going car to car in their great costumes!    When: Sunday, Oct 23, 3:30 - 5:30p (Kids arrive at 4pm)    Who:  EVERYONE at Church of the Saviour. COTS youth and adults host, and kids from COTS and the neighborhood stop by to get some goodies!    Why:  Kids love candy & showing off their costumes. We love to make kids happy with candy joy & making them feel great about their cool costumes. It's a home run!

It's a simple and FUN way to love the families in our community. We're providing a safe, fun, and interactive place for families to obtain flavored sugar. And you can even log some service hours for school.    How:  Bring candy. Decorate the trunk of your car (as much or as little as you like). The interweb is full of fun and easy ideas if you're looking for inspiration. The kids will be there at 4pm.

Sell Greens for Mission Trip!

This is a great opportunity!  
1) We meet the decorating needs of our congregation
AND 2) We raise money for the mission trip!
The last time we did this, each youth selling greens for each 30 minute shift raised $53 towards their mission trip fundraising requirement. (That's $106/hour!!!)  Sign up now!  All you have to do is be friendly at a table in the church parlor. We also need a few to package and sort after they arrive (hot chocolate and theme music provided!). First come, first served.  Reserve your spot by texting or emailing Curt. 216-903-9610,

Get Acolyte Trained!

Thursday, October 27, 6:30-7:30pm in the Sanctuary

Acolytes help make worship services great. They carry in the Big Bible and cross, carry in and light the altar candles, assist with collecting the offering, and help serve Communion. Acolytes serve on Communion Sundays (first Sundays of the month)
