We are thrilled to announce that Church of Our Saviour is starting a new life application Men’s Ministry called TEAM (Teaching, Equipping, Affirming Men for Spiritual Leadership). As men, we feel the responsibilities and pressures of work, marriage, parenting, grandparenting, community service, etc. As these issues arise, our attention to our spiritual lives can begin to fall in the list of priorities. This is why we’re starting our TEAM ministry. We will be using a Bible-based curriculum that focuses on issues important to men. It is intended to be a place where men can engage in a small group conversation and true spiritual friendship. Weekly we will study biblical truth, address specific issues we face today, and help equip one another to lead in our homes and community.
TEAM ministry is not just for the men of Our Saviour. Please feel free to invite a neighbor, friend, golf buddy or tennis teammate to join TEAM! See you on May 2nd!

TIDAL CREEKS AND SALTMARSHES: SENTINELS OF THE LOWCOUNTRY’S ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH
Dr. Fred Holland has spent a career researching and assessing the various influences on our environment. Most recently, his focus has been on evaluating the consequences of stormwater runoff from the increased development of coastal areas. What are the long term effects of development on tidal creeks and saltmarshes and, most important, what can be done to make realistic environmental management decisions?

Bob Milne is considered to be the best ragtime/boogie-woogie pianist in the world. He was filmed and documented for future generations in 2004 during three days of interviews at the Library of Congress and was declared a National Treasure at the conclusion.
Mr. Milne’s natural ability to hear and play music goes back to his early childhood. A French horn player in high school, he went to the prestigious Eastman School of Music at the age of 17, and then became assistant First Horn in the Rochester Philharmonic at age 19. After symphony concerts the students all went and hung out in local places. When the piano player didn’t show up at a sing-along saloon one night, Mr. Milne filled in. They hired him on the spot. He continued playing the horn until age 21, then became a full-time piano player in the Detroit area, playing seven nights a week for 25 years.
Playing in concert halls now since 1991, Mr. Milne performs worldwide every year. A comment often heard following one of his performances is “unbelievable.” The list of music festivals he’s appeared at is extensive. They include the Scott Joplin Ragtime Festival (Sedalia, Missouri), the Montreal Jazz Festival, the Eau Claire Ragtime Festival, Sacramento Ragtime Festive, plus many others.
Mr. Milne has been averaging somewhere in the area of 250 performances per year. He is highly sought after for both his incredible piano playing and easy going, modest presentations. He claims, “If I have been given any ability at all, it is my duty to honor it by trying to improve that ability every time I perform.”
