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

“Let us Break Bread Together”

“Bring a Loaf of Bread Sunday”, August 9

Daily Bread is meant to be shared.  We’ll learn how by bringing a loaf of bread to worship.  Homemade, store bought, wheat, white, or rye, see what the gift of sharing can do.  Step by step, our daily walk and God’s gift of daily bread leads us to help others.   

Calling All Bread Makers

If you have a bread maker that you could use to make fresh  homemade bread, please call the office or Pastor Schelter soon.  We’d like an army of bread bakers to make an army of bread loaves for August 9.  

 Blessing of the Backpacks
new school year is right around the corner and soon you’ll be buying new backpacks and filling them with all the required ingredients for learning. We’ll celebrate backpacks,new or old, and a new school year on Sunday, August 23 with a blessing for the backpacks and the students who bear them!

Homosexuality Study

What’s up with human sexuality? The Supreme Courts gay marriage vote caused such polarizing debate.  The Caitlyn Jenner event has brought much attention to transgender people.  Indeed, attitudes are changing rapidly.  The church has often struggled as mightily as our society in dealing with these issues but that struggle deserves honest dialog, discussion, and bible study.  Sign up in the centrum if you have an interest in a study group on homosexuality.  The time is to be determined but we will start soon.
