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.

July is OSLC's Food Drive and Pantry Volunteer Month!
July is OSLC's month to serve as volunteers at the Spearfish Community Food Pantry. George Vansco & Andy Black, Pantry Board Members, along with Julia Vansco have already contacted volunteers to help distribute food the first two weeks in July. If you still want to help, call Julia at 645-6519, we can always use extra people.

During the entire month of July, we would like to ask OSLC members to assist with a food drive. Our theme is "A can of soup a day...helps keep hunger away!" There will be a container located in the church the entire month of July. We are asking for cans of soup as a donation to support the Spearfish Community Pantry. 

The month of May we served 522 individuals and each person received a can of soup. Our goal is to collect 522 cans of soup!


UPDATE 06/30/22


July 15-17, 2022

Sign-up sheets are posted in the Fellowship Hall.
We need help setting up at the Spearfish City Park, Friday, for wristband night. Then shifts at the pie booth are 2 hours in length. We will need 4 people per shift, and assistance to take down the booth after the 4:00 p.m. closing on the 17th. All proceeds are given out to local charities, our foreign missions, and needs within the church. If you cannot sign up for a shift, monetary donations are always welcome. Make it a family affair and show your children the fun of volunteering to help others!

Also, come join us on Thursday, July 14 at 8:00 a.m. for a Pie Booth Baking Marathon. No experience necessary. Bring your fillings if you have some, or come help bake those we have at the church! The more the merrier and faster we get the pies baked. All are welcome!

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.
