Who Are We
A Community transformed by Christ to be Christ in the world.
A Community …
Our Savior’s Lutheran Church is a community. Whether we are gathered together for worship, service, or plain old fun, we do so as a community.
… transformed by Christ …
We come from various places in our lives, but we all come together ready to be transformed by the love, faith, and grace of Jesus Christ. This happens through the Word of God, Holy Communion, Baptism, and work of Christ within the community.
… to be Christ in the world.
Our gathering together and our transformation exist not for our own benefit, but for the sake of the world. In the world, we are called to be “little Christs,” as Martin Luther said, meaning that we represent Christ in the world in word and deed.
Worship at Our Savior’s
At Our Savior’s we believe that we encounter God through worship, are forgiven our sins in Jesus’ name, and receive the Holy Spirit for life and witness in the world.
Two opportunities to worship are available:
On Sunday mornings at 8:15 and 10:30 we worship using “Evangelical Lutheran Worship.” This is a traditional service that uses the order of worship the church has used almost since its beginning nearly 2000 years ago. We use a variety of lectionaries and we use various liturgies from the ELW (Evangelical Lutheran Worship). During the school year, we occasional do a “Family Service” that is more contemporary and is lead by and geared toward kids and youth.
On most Wednesday nights during the school year we worship using a less formal service at 6:30. This shorter service includes drama, singing, messages, and prayer. We may use the lectionary for this service, or we may choose reading based on a theme or work through Biblical books. During Lent this service becomes more contemplative, and uses the “Holden Evening Prayer” service.
In the summers, there is one Sunday service at 9:00.
As Lutherans we celebrate two sacraments. Communion, or the Lord’s Supper is celebrated on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of each month (as well as other random Sundays) and occasionally on Wednesdays. Anyone, regardless of age or church affiliation, is welcome to receive communion. Baptisms are celebrated throughout the year at both the Sunday and Wednesday services and occasionally in private services in the chapel.
