Our Savior Lutheran Church
Come Worship With Us!

Welcome to Our Savior Lutheran Church
We extend a special welcome to those who are single, married, divorced, gay, filthy rich, dirt poor, yo no habla Ingles.  We extend a special welcome to those who are crying new-borns, squirming children and frazzled moms and dads.  We welcome those in flip flops and those in three piece suits. 
We welcome you if you can sing like Frank Sinatra or  can't carry a note in a bucket.  You're welcome here if you're "just browsing," just woke up, or just got out of jail.  We don't care if you're more Lutheran than Luther, more Catholic than the Pope, or more religious than Billy Graham. You're just as welcome if you haven't been to church since last Christmas or  since little Joey's Baptism.
We extend a special welcome to those who are over 60 but not grown up yet, and to teenagers who are growing up too fast.  We welcome soccer moms, fantasy football dads, starving artists, tree-huggers, latte-sippers, vegetarians,
junk-food eaters. 
We welcome those who are in recovery or still addicted.  We welcome you if you're having problems or you're down in the dumps. Truth is, we've all been there too.
If you blew all your offering money at the rip-off casinos you're welcome here. 
We offer a special welcome to those who think the earth is flat, that Elvis is still alive, or that the Cubs will someday win the World Series.
We offer a welcome to those who work too hard, don't work at all, or can't figure out their life's calling.  
We welcome those who are inked, pierced or both. 
We offer a special welcome to those who are still regretting past mistakes, could use a prayer right
now, or have had it up to here with "organized religion." 
We welcome those who are here because grandma is visiting and wanted to go to church and even those who got lost in traffic and wound up here by mistake.  We welcome left-wing, right-wing, or no wing at all.  We welcome seekers and doubters.
We welcome YOU to Our Savior Lutheran Church because God welcomes us to meet at the cross. Here, in the welcoming arms of Jesus, there is faith, hope, love, and healing for all.      -Anonymous

Maundy Thursday –April 17, 7:00pm
Our Maundy Thursday worship will remember the night our Lord was betrayed and turned over to Roman soldiers. But it will also remember the night He took Bread and Wine and gave us the gift of everlasting life. This life will be shared with a new class of first communicants as the Last Supper becomes their First Communion.
GOOD FRIDAY—April 18 – 7pm
Tebebrae Service
In a service of darkness and meditation we will remember and share our Lord’s suffering and death in Good Friday worship.  The nails that spelled Christ’s agonizing death, spell our salvation as we nail our sins to that same cross to live his new life.
Observing the ancient order of Tenebrae we will stand with the centurion at the foot of the cross and declare, “Truly, this was the Son of God,”
EASTER SUNRISE —April 20, 7:00am
[Pleasant Ridge Cemetery]
Like surprised women carrying embalming spices, we will gather together ‘at early dawn’ for our Easter Sunrise at a cemetery.  In a place of death, they found life!  Imagine their surprise!  Imagine our surprise, as well, for we will celebrate Christ’s triumph among tombstones, and find joy in the place of mourning.
