Welcome 

Worship

   There's a place for everyone at Our Savior to be involved and make new friends through small group ministries, fellowship events, and committees for the congregation's life and mission.  Membership is voluntary and personal.

   Persons join when they express the desire to affiliate.  Adults may join formally the congregation by either a letter of membership transfer from another Christian congregation or by adult Confirmation.

   The sacrament of Holy Communion is celebrated with this understanding: that the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ are truly present in, with, and under the bread and wine; and, that the penitent receive the full forgiveness of all their sins. All baptized Christians who, in good conscience, can receive with this understanding are invited to partake.

   Baptisms and weddings are conducted as needed. A church wedding requires a couple to spend a period of time preparing for marriage in consultation with the pastor.

   An elevator and access ramp are available for entering and exiting the building. Refreshments are usually served after worship on Sunday. In warmer weather, the church is air-conditioned for your comfort.

Weekend Update for 3 Lent

March 7, 2021

Whose Church Is It, Anyway?

          How often you and I speak of our church family by saying, “In our church we do such and such…”  But it’s not really our church, is it?  The church belongs to Jesus Christ.  He bought us with His salvific death and resurrection.  The church is covered by His sacrificial blood and powered by His agent, the Holy Spirit. This Spirit comes to us by Word & Sacrament, through personal prayer and amid mutual conversation and consolation among those belonging to Christ.  God’s plan for His Church is ever evolving.  As I told President Randy Fairhurst the other day, “God already knows the name of the next pastor, the one leading you to being Christ’s Church more fully and faithfully.”  How awesome to know the Church is in God’s hands!

          The Lord cleans house in tomorrow’s Gospel reading. His purpose isn’t solely to rid the Jerusalem Temple of the “bizarre bazaar” going on in the Court of the Gentiles.  The Lord’s preparing us for Him to be the way God comes and encounters us with His presence and mercies. We worship a person, not a place!
