A Weekly Peek at Our Savior's....


God's good work continues in this place thanks to motivated members, friends, and staff.  Look what's happening in the  
Worship, Music & Arts Ministry at Our Savior's!


The Worship, Music, and Arts Committee wants to help worshippers at Our Savior's grow spiritually, feel part of our church community, and celebrate our faith in Jesus.

This committee seeks to make our worship experience enthusiastic, engaging, transforming, and enlightening. Members of the committee include our ministerial staff, music staff, altar guild, and lay members who work together to create our church's worship experience.

Summer often brings fun changes to the schedules of our lives, and we'll be trying to do the same with worship. Services will be at 8:00 and 9:30 am on Sundays in the sanctuary starting on June 3. Look forward to special music, enlightening sermons, and meaningful camaraderie during our summer gatherings.


If you have a desire to help support our worship staff and make worship service a special experience at Our Savior's, we welcome you to participate as a committee member, a musician, a volunteer bringing your talent to services, an usher, a reader, a communion server, or an altar guild member.

Please contact the church office if you'd like to take an active role in making worship meaningful.
