Pastoral Care

Baptism

In Holy Baptism, our gracious heavenly Father frees us from sin and death by joining us to the death and resurrection of our Lord, Jesus Christ. By the waters of baptism, we are reborn children of God. Baptisms are performed at any service at Our Savior’s.  We will check the calendar to make sure there are no conflicts.  Baptism classes are held bi-monthly and are required to have your child baptized. To schedule a baptism, call or e-mail the church office using the information on our contact page.

Counseling

If you are in need of counseling, call or e-mail the church office using the information on our contact page. Then someone will call to schedule an appointment or to give a referral.

Funerals

Funerals can be arranged by calling or e-mailing the church office using the information on our contact page.

Each year in honor of All Saints Day, a Service of Remembrance is held. We remember all the Our Savior’s members who have died during the past year as well as other loved ones.

Hospital Visits

If you would like a pastoral visit while hospitalized or at home, call or e-mail the church office using the information on our contact page. We check the admissions roster at District One hospital throughout the week.  Upon admission to District One, please make it known if you desire a pastoral visit.

Weddings

Our Savior’s would be delighted to assist you in preparation for one of the most important days of your life! May God bless and guide you as you prepare for your marriage. Please call or e-mail the church office using the information on our contact page if you have any questions.

Our Savior’s believes that marriage is a lifelong relationship based on the promise of faithfulness.  We believe that marriage should be rooted in steadfast love of God and that God’s faithfulness and self-giving love are the models of the relationship in a marriage. We believe that God, along with the church, desires that marriage be characterized by faithfulness, joy, love, growth and fulfillment.

Scheduling a Wedding

To schedule a wedding, call or e-mail the church office using the information on our contact page.   Wedding times and dates are subject to approval from a pastor and church availability. Wedding Coordinators. Once your date and time have been confirmed with the church office, a wedding coordinator will contact you. Your wedding coordinator will be available to answer detailed questions regarding your wedding service. She will also direct the wedding rehearsal and assist you the day of the wedding. The rehearsal date and time must be confirmed with the wedding coordinator. Marriage Preparation Workshops. All couples who desire to be married at Our Savior’s must attend this important workshop led by Lutheran Social Services. The one-day workshop identifies core factors in becoming a couple and provides helpful strategies and tools for creating and nurturing relationships for a lifetime. Please call the church office or go to the LSS website for more information. All couples will then attend three hour long group sessions with one of the pastors at Our Savior’s. These are scheduled twice during the calendar year. You will then meet with the pastor who will perform you wedding to engage in conversation and finalize details of your wedding.
