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

Mardi Gras Brunch Bash

Pancakes!

How About a sparkling “Champagne

Brunch and Mardi Gras Celebration?

February 7 at 12:15pm

The best Pancakes, sausage, bacon and sparkling grape juice are served up for you and the whole family.  Who will be the next Mardi Gras King and Queen?  Who will win the limbo?  Who will wear the most beads in the parade? Come and find out!

The Jubilation of Mardi Gras quickly gives way to the most somber day of the church year—

Ash Wednesday

It is the only time in which black is the liturgical color.

It is a confrontation with our sin and mortality.

It is a confirmation of new life in Christ.
