PICTORIAL DIRECTORY UPDATE
September 19th – 24th LifeTouch Studios will be taking our pictures!
Picture sign up has begun! Your participation in our new directory is more than just a family picture and a listed address. A current pictorial directory helps us to care for each other and share in deeper bonds of Christian fellowship.
It has come to our attention that not everyone has received a call regarding sign up. The pictorial committee is working on this and we will be making phone calls personally to any member who we know of that did not receive a call.
We have 3 options for you to sign up for pictures. First option is to sign up online via our website oslchibbing.org. There is also a link to the sign up page on our FaceBook page. Second option is to find our table Sunday mornings before and after church service in the narthex area. We will also be stationed downstairs during coffee between services.
Each family participating will receive a complimentary 8×10 photo and a directory. Whether you sign up online or at church bring a nonperishable food item to our table and receive a coupon for $5.00 off your picture purchase. All food collected will go to our food bank.
If you need further assistance with sign up please contact Carrie Fawkes 218-263-6767 or firstname.lastname@example.org
The pictorial directory committee will be available before and after church services to assist you with sign up. You may also sign up by clicking on the link below. If you have any questions please see a committee member, or contact Carrie Fawkes at 263-6767.
Welcome to Our Savior’s Lutheran Church (OSLC)! Upon entering, you will notice the beautiful sanctuary with stained glass windows depicting parables of Christ and the large crucifix hanging above the altar. Friendly congregational members will greet you, and as you sit in the pews, our music will fill your soul! We have an active Temple Choir and also a worship band for a more contemporary sound. Music is emphasized within each service, and the sermons will speak to your heart and feed your soul while creating a deeper relationship with God.
Our church’s mission is A Community transformed by Christ, to be Christ in the World. We invite you to join us to become “the hands and feet of Christ”. Our ownership of this mission is shown in outreach through our Food Shelf, Clothes Closet, Habitat for Humanity, and God’s work. Our hands. Sunday. The Food Shelf is open on Thursdays and Fridays from 1:00-2:30. Our clothes closet can be accessed through appointment only by calling the church office.
Our worship service provides opportunities for you and your family to grow in your Christian faith. Children of all ages are welcome during worship and are invited to join Pastor Kevin for a Children’s Message each week. After service, during the school year, children may attend Sunday School while you enjoy coffee, goodies and fellowship with parishioners downstairs. We partner with First Lutheran (another ELCA church in Hibbing) in our Confirmation and Youth Ministry, as well as some congregational worship and seasonal events through the year. Baptism and First Communion are joyous events which precede Confirmation. Students in grades 3-11 are involved in our Confirmation program. Youth have opportunities through our church to participate in Bible camps, vacation bible school, BWCA canoe trips, national youth gatherings, church services…. On average, OSLC sends over 70 youth to Bible camp each year.
OSLC has a long and rich history of service to the community of Hibbing and the world. Both young and old participate in potluck dinners, Lutefisk suppers, pasty bake fundraisers, the fall bazaar with much of the profits benefiting ministries such as the Salvation Army, Lutheran Social Service, local Bible Camps, and worldwide missionary support.
For over 60 years, we have held the White Elephant Sale in the spring, which provides clothing, furniture, appliances, sporting goods, tools, bicycles, and many other items for inexpensive prices to our community and the surrounding communities.
OSLC is a “community safe space” offering the use of our facilities to Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Lutheran Social Services, Advocates for Family Peace, among others.
OSLC was formed in 1903 by Norwegian immigrants under the name “Tabor” with 23 members. It officially became known as Our Savior’s Lutheran Church in 1904. The church held a groundbreaking ceremony in July of 1952 with the cornerstone of our present church laid in October of that same year.
Please call our church office with any questions you may have. Our staff is pleased to help you!
