    Our Saviour's offers a vibrant array of mission and ministry opportunities for those of all ages. Check out what some of our groups have been up to lately!

    • Prayer ministers available in december

      Prayer ministers will be available during communion Dec. 2-3 and Dec. 16-17 for those who would like to share a specific prayer request. Look for them wearing a cross necklace toward the back of the worship space during communion. 

    • Christmas cantata recording online now

      What a glorious afternoon of music on Dec. 3! If you weren't able to attend Our Saviour's 2023 Christmas Cantata, "O Holy Light," or would like to listen again, you can check it out on our YouTube channel HERE.

    • "how does a weary world rejoice?" advent bible study

      Join Pastor Elisabeth for an Advent Bible study Thursdays, Dec. 7-21, at 9 a.m. in Luther Court. Visio Divina, Latin for “divine seeing,” is a method of reflection, study, and prayer through a process of intentional seeing. We will reflect individually and as a group on scripture and images related to our Advent theme, "How Does a Weary World Rejoice?" 


      Santa Claus for a Cause returns Dec. 9! Parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles: Bring little ones to Celebration from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 9, for a visit & photo with Santa plus games, crafts and refreshments. All proceeds from the event ($10/child or $20/family) will go to Our Saviour's Mozambique Mission. Register HERE.

    • Jingle & Mingle saturday, dec. 9

      On Saturday, Dec. 9, after the 5 p.m. worship service, enjoy Christmas treats, cookies, wine, Christmas trivia and special music (courtesy of Peter Sacks, son of OSLC organist Robert Sacks!).

      If there are enough cookies to send home, we'll do a Christmas cookie exchange!

      In a special series of events through the end of the year, we will explore the transformative experience of grief, moving away from the idea that grief is a problem that needs to be “fixed.” These opportunities will seek to name both individual and universal experiences of grief, and you are invited to attend as many as you would like, whether you are an experienced griever, are brand-new to grief, or you seek to support those who grieve. View the upcoming-events listing below and find out more about each offering HERE

      Women's Ministry will read "The Measure" by Nikki Erlick for its annual book discussion, which will take place Friday, Jan. 26, at at 7 p.m. on the Our Saviour's Campus. The book explores: What if one day you woke up and the world was forever changed? How would you live your life? A timely, life-affirming story about family, friendship, hope and destiny, "The Measure" encourages readers to live life to the fullest.

      Add this book to your Christmas list and put Jan. 26 on your calendar for a great evening of conversation and fellowship. You are welcome to join the discussion even if you haven't read the book! Questions? Contact Kris Reenstjerna at
