Welcome to Our Savior’s Lutheran Church

Our Savior’s Lutheran Church (OSLC) is located in Spearfish, SD, and is one of nearly 10,000 congregations that make up the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA). We are people from all walks of life, with varying histories and backgrounds, called together by God to celebrate our common identity in Jesus Christ. We celebrate our faith in our worship life together. We grow in our faith though study and conversation. We stretch our faith in service to one another and to our larger community, and we live out our faith daily in our callings, careers, and households.

Introducing the SonShine Squad at OSLC. The purpose of this group will be to make little crafts, goodies, cards, etc. and deliver them to our homebound folks at nursing homes, assisted living, and home. Remember the isolation and loneliness we felt during the Covid months when we were shut in? Let's spread a little of his sunshine and blessings to these folks and show them we are thinking of them, care for them, and perhaps even ease a little of their loneliness.

Join us for the SonShine Squad meeting on Monday, August 15, at 10:30 am in the Fireside Room.

UPDATE 08/15/22


Kindergarten Milestone Wednesday, August 17 at 5:45 pm at the church, in the lower level.

For many children, kindergarten is the first time they are away from their parents or a special caregiver all day. Come help us mark this Milestone with a special Pizza Party before school starts. We share a meal, create a craft, and learn some special ways to connect with each other at the end of our separate days.

If you're worshipping with us on-line, we'd like to extend to you an invitation to participate in the sacrament of Holy Communion with us during our live-stream. Here's How:

Before the service, simply prepare elements for communion to have ready...perhaps some bread from the pantry, or some crackers, as well as a small amount of wine or grape juice poured into individual small glasses or cups. Have these set aside for when the service begins. When the words of institution are proclaimed over the bread and wine on the altar, know that those words and the promise they bear ("given and shed FOR YOU") are proclaimed and prayed over the elements in your home. If you are worshipping alone in your home, commune yourself with us. If there are two or more of you gathered in front of the screen, commune each other with the same words:"The body of Christ, given for you. The blood of Christ, shed for you." If there are young children with you, mark the sign of the cross on their foreheads and remind them that Jesus loves them and forgives them all of their sins. As you share the meal, be assured that you're sharing it with all of those physically gathered, as well as with others gathering with you on-line. We pray this opportunity will be a strength and comfort to you, as you receive Jesus' presence through the sacrament.
