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.
We are a congregation of the NE MN Synod of the ELCA
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.
Our Sunday Morning Worship Service at Our Savior’s is at 9 a.m. We are a “family friendly” worship environment where children are certainly welcome, and an occasional cry from the pew is just their way of saying “amen.” For parents who do choose, we do have nursery available where the service can be viewed from closed circuit T.V.
Our Sunday School Ministry – also referred to as Faith Sunday – runs concurrent with our Worship Service. Children worship with their families up till the the Children’s Message, and then are excused for faith instruction at approximately 9:30 a.m.
Most Sundays our Worship Service is taken from “the hymnal” (the Evangelical Lutheran Worship)
in a “traditional” worship format, however, we do mix it up a bit with a “Contemporary Band Lead” Worship Service, on average, once a month.
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.
