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.

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. This is one of the ways we live through rather than under this pandemic, by sharing food for the journey.

And so the journey continues. Pray for our kids, teachers and school support staff as they navigate these turbulent first days of a new school year. Pray for our front-line workers striving to keep us safe, and continue to live through by your faith in Jesus!

Pastor Stephan Sandness
