Frequently Asked Questions

How do I arrange a wedding?
Please contact a pastor and set up an appointment to visit about details for arranging a wedding.

How do I enroll a child in Sunday School?
Please call the church office and let us know if child plans to attend Sunday School regularly, so that we can have enough supplies. Of course, children are always welcome to come on a Sunday and give the class a try.

How do I arrange for a baptism?
Please contact a pastor to arrange a baptism.  The pastor may wish to arrange a pre-baptismal meeting with the parents of an infant or person being baptized. We prefer to include baptisms during Sunday morning worship services so that the whole congregation can welcome the newly baptized.

What do you believe about baptism?
Baptism is the entry ceremony into the Christian faith. Baptism is a onetime event, with promises that last forever. By water and the Word, God delivers us from sin and death and raises us to new life in Jesus. We are united with all the baptized in the one body of Christ, anointed with the gift of the Holy Spirit and joined in God´s mission for the life of the world. Infants, children and adults are welcomed to be baptized.

When do you have Holy Communion?
We celebrate Holy Communion the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month at both worship services; Wednesday evenings, when Confirmation Class meets, at 6:30 p.m.; and Tuesdays, following the 1st and 3rd Sunday at 2:00 p.m. in the chapel. Gluten free wafers and white grape juice are available at Communion. If needed, please make this request to the person serving Communion when you come forward.

What do you believe about Holy Communion?
We celebrate the real presence of Christ in the bread & wine of Holy Communion. In this meal, we are given forgiveness of sins, life and salvation. At Our Savior´s we practice an open table - all are welcome and invited to share in the gift of God´s grace and mercy. Typically, children in 5th Grade and below who have not attended Communion Preparation courses come forward for a blessing.
