Welcome

Our Savior Lutheran Church is a Christian community that seeks to fearlessly follow Jesus. Rooted in the good news of Jesus Christ, and the Lutheran tradition, we come from diverse places and experiences to grow as Christ’s disciples in faith, hope, and love. We hope you will join us!

We hope that you stay healthy and as active as possible while you wait with patience for the next phase of our community response to the pandemic. Thank you for your prayers, for each other and for the church; and for your financial support of the congregation. 

Be Well and of Good Cheer,

Pastor Jim

Email Edition of Christ in our Home With the outbreak of coronavirus disease in North America and around the world many people may be without a physical copy of Christ in Our Home. To assist with devotional life during this time, Augsburg-Fortress is offering a limited-time complementary email subscription. Sign up by clicking here, sign-up, and they will deliver the daily devotional to your email through June 30, 2020.

Stay Safe Mission: As we prepare for the day we can meet in worship once again, we’re considering what that may look like. Our top priority is to keep our members and guests safe. The Mission Quilters have agreed to make fabric masks available for pick up when large groups are allowed to gather again. The masks will be yours to keep. You will be required to wash the mask as recommended. Any fabric mask will decrease the chances of contracting the COVID-19 virus, but it will not be medical grade. The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases is recommending the use of face masks while out in public.

Need help getting your groceries after you order them online? OSLC’s Reaching Out program may be able to help. A group of volunteers has agreed to perform grocery pick-up and delivery as needed. For grocery delivery, contact Ken Konigsmark at kenkonigsmark@yahoo.com or (425) 445-8656. To volunteer as a delivery person, contact Rick West at rickjanbecca@comcast.net.

Prayers Your prayer requests are important to us. Requests for prayers continue to be taken by email or phone, and will be added to the weekly worship bulletin, Prayers of the People, and staff prayers. Email office@oslcissaquah.org, or call 425-392-4169 and leave a message with your prayer.

Giving As we look forward to the day when we will be able to safely gather in worship, please remember that our expenses continue. You can support Our Savior by paying your pledge and making offerings as you normally would by check via postal mail, or give online under the “Electronic Giving” tab. Know that your generosity and faithfulness in this regard is much appreciated.

Important Announcement

Beloved Members and Friends of Our Savior Lutheran Church,

Blessings and Peace to all of you as you find ways to stay connected and full of hope during this new and highly unusual way to live.

Starting March 29th, I will be recording the reading of the lessons and a short sermon. You can find these videos by clicking the “YouTube” icon at the very top left of this page. You can also find a copy of Sunday’s worship bulletin by clicking on that Sunday’s post on the right side under “Latest News”.

I encourage you to find ways to connect with others as you work through this material. You are not alone.

Due to the Washington State ”Stay at Home” order, we have closed the office at the church building. Staff continue to work from home and will respond to messages as we are able.

At this point we do not know how long the suspension will be. We will monitor all the available information and resume our on-site ministry activities as soon as safely possible.

Be Well and of Good Cheer,

Pastor Jim Kruse
