Godly Play Spoken Here
Kids' Sunday School During the 9am Service
The Godly Play leaders will escort the children from the sanctuary before the opening hymn. We ask parents to pick up their children after worship in the Fireside Room downstairs.

Prefer to stay in the sanctuary? Grab a toolkit near the back of the sanctuary. In them, you’ll find items to help your little one take in the worship service: water motion toys, dry erase boards, finger puppets, puzzles, and activity sheets for them to draw and color, and much more! Spark Story Bibles are also conveniently located in each pew for children to be able to follow along in service. The Littlest Lutherans Lookout is upstairs if needed.

Need Help with Wheelchair, Walkers and Scooters?
  • Look for the designated spaces reserved for wheelchairs and scooters on the level floor along the stained-glass walls.
  • We can bring Holy Communion to you if you'd rather not navigate the aisle.
  • We can help fold and park walkers between the pews and keep the aisles clear.

We want to make sure EveryOne can participate, feel included, see the screen, enjoy the company of family and friends in worship. The ushers can help guide you to these areas.
EveryOne is Welcome
Our Savior's is a Welcoming Community. We affirm with the apostle Paul that in Christ "there is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female" -Galatians 3:28. Christ has made us one. We are committed to extending this welcome to EveryOne without regard to gender identity, sexual orientation, race, age, socio-economic status, disability, political association, marital status, education or ethnic origin. God's reconciling love in Christ is at work in EveryOne.
