New to Our Savior?

  New to Our Savior?  
                                         



 


Greetings:

Hi!  We are glad that you are taking a minute to check us out.  Please continue to look around to find out more about us.  Got a specific question?  Feel free to email us at karenwitkop4@gmail.com. We will be happy to speak with you about whatever's on your mind.  

At Our Savior, we proclaim that Jesus is our Savior, and the Bible is the pure Word of God.  We teach that it is absolutely true and perfect in every way.  There we see how Jesus won the victory by conquering sin, death, and the devil, at the cross.  Through this victory, he gives us the free gifts of forgiveness and salvation.  We daily celebrate that victory and enjoy the blessings that our Savior has for us now and for eternity.  

Come and see us to learn more about your victory in Christ our Savior.

Our location:

There have been some recent changes.  We have had to downsize, so we sold the original church building,  and we moved to the Springville Center for -Arts building, at 37 N. Buffalo St. in the heart of Springville, NY.  At this time, we are meeting for worship every 3rd Sunday of the month at 10:30 am.
(Note: This may change once the COVID limitations are lifted and our people feel more comfortable with worshiping together again.)

Our Worship:

The gospel (or good news) is not just information about what Jesus did to save sinners.  It is also the power God uses to work faith in our hearts and transform our lives.  Therefore Lutheran worship places the gospel in the central focus in an order of service called the liturgy.  In the message and the meal (Holy Communion), in specially selected Scripture readings, and in carefully crafted songs, prayers, and creeds, the liturgy proclaims the good news about Jesus from start to finish.  

At Our Savior we strive for worship that is...
- more celebration than party
- more accessible than simplistic
- more profound than complicated
- more worthwhile than convenient
- more timeless than traditional
- more diverse than contemporary
- more crucial than casual

Come join us.  We will work hard to make sure you feel welcome.  We will also tell it like it is- helping you come face to face with your living and loving God.

Note: As part of our downsize, we no longer have our own pastor.  We currently livestream our services in from Trinity in Woodgridge, VA.  This is where our last pastor is preaching now.  For our shut-ins and communion needs, we are served by the Pastor from Prince of Peace, near Rochester, NY.

What about children in church?

Sometimes parents (and even churches) can think that church is not a place for chldren.  At Our Savior, we follow Jesus' example and encourage the little children to come unto him.  We want children in church worshiping with their families and learning about Jesus' love.  

Why?
- even from the earliest of ages, children are models of faith that all of us can learn from (Luke 18:16,17))
- our worship format encourages families to be together, and is ideally suited for active engagement and participation by all, including children.  
- the sights and sounds of active children within our congregation are a great joy to us and evidence that God is blessing our future even now.  

We realize that, especially at first, having children in church can be a challenge for parents.  To help, we offer the following :
- a children's devotion is offered prior to the sermon every Sunday, tailored specifically to help your kids learn about God.  
- helpful worshippers who will be glad to assist you with your child, without judging you.
