Burning with the Spirit of Christ in us, we are called to serve our neighbors.  In following Jesus’s teaching and example, we at Our Savior Lutheran Church will feed souls through worship, word and witness while feeding our neighbor with our hands and actions.

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!
