Devi Stoffregen is heading to India!                         

As many of you know, adoption is a big part of my life. My parents adopted my brother and me both at a young age. 

So many people asked if I remembered anything, or if I knew my biological parents. My response was always, " I don't remember" or "I don't know. “It was never something I was ashamed of, just had no interest to look for answers. It wasn't until recently I found out more of my story. It has always been my dream to visit India someday and see the culture.

Now I have that opportunity to go back. What better way to spend this adventure than volunteering at the orphanage I was from, Grace

Kennett Foundation! Grace Kennett Foundation is a non-profit organization that has sheltered and cared for over thousands of

abandoned or injured children for the past 60 years. Their mission is to incorporate competence, compassion, and commitment into caring for these children. They have also brought together hundreds of families worldwide through adoption. Even for families in Coon Valley WI!

Since being in contact with the orphanage my mind and heart have never been so clear. This is an experience I truly believe is one I need to have. As believers, we are called to actively spread God's words and love to make a positive difference in the world,

whether it be our loved ones, or strangers from another country. However, this journey is something I can't do alone. Your support is greatly appreciated whether it's motivation, financial, spiritual, or emotional. Anything will help!

Thank you all so much for helping me make my dream come true!


We love to have children and families worship together and really don’t mind if the  little ones get a little fidgety. We also know that it is hard for parents to fully engage in worship when they are worried about  misplacing a pacifier or a crayon falling on the floor. 

Our Saviors has a variety of ways to make worship meaningful for families. 

Þ We really don’t mind if your child is restless!

 Þ There are children bulletins and worship bags filled with quiet activities.

 Þ Kids of all ages are encouraged to come up for the children’s Bible time. 

Þ We have “worship grandparents” who are eager to sit with your child

 Þ Twice a month Liz Dahlen (a mom of two boys and speech therapist) will be in the lounge to take care of infants to 5-year old’s.  She will have age appropriate toys and bible activities as well as treats. You can bring your child before or during  worship, you just have to make sure to pick them up!
