Our Saviour is a confessional Christian family of believers focused on spreading the good news of Jesus. Committed to being a positive influence in our community, we look forward to opportunities to serve and get to know you.

Our Beliefs

We hold to the Bible, God's Word, as the ultimate authority. We also subscribe to the Lutheran Confessions that lay out the accurate teachings of God's Word. You can read more below.


National and Global

As members of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod, we're able to support other congregations and mission work all around the United States and throughout the world, so that the good news of Jesus, the Savior of the word, is shared with the world.


Worship

Sundays 10:30 am

What is a worship service like?

We worship God using a liturgical service. Using songs and responsive readings our service keeps the focus on the Word of God and on our Savior. Some elements repeat each week, while others change.
The sermon is based on a portion of the Bible and you will hear the truth of God's love for all people proclaimed in the sermon, as well as practical applications for your everyday life.

What's Epiphany?

We hear about “epiphany moments – those sudden “aha-s!” of life, when something we didn't “get” comes into focus for us. The great “epiphany moment” of Christianity is God's love for everyone in the world. Jesus' love isn't limited to a particular nation or ethnic group. Jesus came to be the Savior of everyone in the whole world. The Church celebrates this great truth during the Epiphany season. Come to Our Saviour Lutheran Church to hear more about God's love for you!

What's Lent?

Lent is a 40-day time of reflection on the great central truth of the Christian Faith: Jesus loves us so much that he suffered and died to take the punishment we deserve for our sin on his innocent self. During the Lenten season, some Christians choose to “give up” something. Their self-denial helps them in their spiritual devotion, by helping them to focus on Jesus' willingness to sacrifice his life for us. But the man focus of Lent is Jesus' sacrifice on the cross for us. This year Lent begins on Wednesday, February 26. We have Wednesday night services at 7:00 pm beginning on February 26 and continuing through April 1. Come to Our Saviour Lutheran Church to hear more about God's love for you!

Easter for Kids – Saturday, April 4, 2020 – 10 am to 12 noon

It's exciting to look into the face of a child who has just opened an Easter egg filled with chocolate treats! It's even more exciting to know and to trust that Jesus Christ's tomb is empty! It's empty because he kept his great promise to rise again after he died on the cross for us. Jesus' resurrection is proof positive that he is our Savior from sin, and that we can trust everything he says about himself and everything he promises to those who trust in him. We want to share this wonderful excitement with you and your family. Please come to our free “Easter for Kids” event on Saturday, April 4 at 10:00 am. We'll start the morning by hearing what the Bible says about Jesus' death and resurrection. We'll bake (and eat!) Easter “empty tomb” cookies. We'll finish off our morning with an Easter egg hunt on our church lawn. We invite all children from age four up! For more information, please call our pastor at (734) 834-0139 or email the pastor at revguypurdue@yahoo.com.

Bible Studies

Today's Light

Would you like to understand the Bible better? Would you like to explore the major themes of the Bible? Would you like to have a place where you can discuss the Bible with fellow believers who are reading it along with you? Our Today's Light Bible study meets Sunday mornings from 9:30 to 10:00 am. This class is scheduled to end on Sunday, May 10, 2020.

Revelation: Testament of Hope

Revelation is the last book of the Bible. It's different from the other 65 books of the Bible. Or....is it? Join us for “Revelation: Testament of Hope.” We'll see how the message of Revelation is the same as the message of the rest of the Bible: victory in Jesus Christ for believers living in a troubled and sinful world. This class is scheduled to begin Sunday, May 17, 2020 at 9:30 am.

Psalms

The Psalms are the “prayer book” of the Bible. For 3,000 years, believers have turned to the psalms in times of joy and sorrow, celebration and grief. Join us Wednesdays from 10:00 to 11:00 am as we explore the book of Psalms. This class is scheduled to begin January 22, 2020.

That I May Know Him

The Christian Faith is more than knowing who Jesus is and what he did. The Christian Faith is a relationship with Jesus and with other Christians. This no-cost, no-obligation seven-week class gives participants Christian truth in language that “speaks to the heart.” It's available by appointment with the pastor. Please call Pastor Purdue at (734) 834-0139 or email him at revguypurdue@yahoo.com to register, or for more information.
