This page contains ministry opportunities at Our Savior Lutheran Church and School this fall as we continue to gather in new ways around the Word of God. May the Lord guide each of us to a greater faith and trust in Him as we learn, live and share Christ together.
We invite you to:
- Worship Faithfully
“Honor the Sabbath Day by keeping it holy” – We honor the Lord and His word by weekly worship with the body of Christ. Worship in person or online Sunday mornings at 8:30 (traditional) or 10:30 (contemporary). Monday night worship will resume at 7 p.m. on September 14 in person only and continue through the fall, following the Sunday communion schedule.
- Study the Word
“If you continue in my word, you are truly my disciples…” – We grow closer to Christ by spending time in the Word of God. Choose a bible reading plan to help with regular Bible reading, and join a Bible study online or in person. Wednesday Bible Study starts September 16 at 11 a.m., in person or live stream, studying the book of Revelation. Online studies include 1 Peter and the Exodus. Find Bible resources under Faith Resources on our website.
- Be in a Small Group – or Smaller Group
“As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another” – We “disciple” each other as we discuss and encourage each other in applying God’s word to our lives. Small Groups resume this fall, and you can also join a smaller group – a huddle (4-6 people) or a triad (3 people) for a six week discussion of discipleship. Small Groups (and smaller groups) help us build relationships, encourage each other, and care for one another as the body of Christ.
Wednesday Bible Study – starts September 16, 11 a.m. studying the book of Revelation. Join us in the sanctuary with health protocols as in worship, or online via Our Savior Live Stream. Contact Pastor Wangelin for more information.
Friday Morning Men’s Breakfast – Every 1st, 3rd, and 5h Friday. Starts September 18, 6:30 a.m. at Spuds Restaurant on Waverly. Groups of 10 or less. Contact Dave Wright for more information.
1 Peter Online Study – if you missed Pastor Wangelin’s study last spring, you can find it on our website. 1 Peter gives incredible strength and encouragement to Christians going through tribulation and challenges. We plan to produce more online studies this fall.
Milestone Ministries – equipping families for faith training at important moments. Classes will be online, led by OSL staff. Fall milestone classes include Four Year Old learning to pray, First Grade Bible, etc.
PSI Confirmation – Public school students in grades 7 & 8 are walking through the Scriptures via online format as they prepare to walk with Jesus for a lifetime. Contact Vicar Heinze for information.
Note: There is no Discover Our Savior class this fall, or women’s Tapestry. These will start in January.
