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.

OSLC SPEARFISH VIRUS RESPONSE

UPDATE 4/28/20


Christ is risen! He is risen, indeed!


Because of ongoing concerns with the COVID-19 pandemic, the Church may be scattered rather than gathered right now, but we're still Church. That reality is palpable in the many ways you all are living out your Easter faith in these strange days.

For the time being, we will continue to worship together (apart) online. To access our live-stream worship services, simply click on the red arrow near the top right of the homepage. You can also connect with us via Facebook through the link provided. As we offer encouragement to you through these portals, it encourages us to see and feel your engagement and responses!

We are now able to begin recording worship services and placing them on DVD discs again...something we had to figure out after upgrading our audio/visual system at the church. If you know of someone not able to connect with the worship services via the internet, who might appreciate receiving DVD recordings of the weekly worship services, we ask that you contact the church office (605-642-3715) and let us know. We'll put these folks on the list and figure out how to get those to them each week.

ALSO...THANK YOU for your powerful support of the ministries of OSLC in these challenging times. Our congregation continues to step up and make sure that we remain financially healthy and whole, through the mail and through electronic giving. It's truly humbling, the outpouring of generosity we see day in and day out here in this place!

The month of May is traditionally a month of celebrations and marking time...confirmation, graduation, the end of another Sunday school year...all of that. This May is different, and we all feel it. Confirmation has been moved into October, so we'll have opportunity to celebrate that stepping stone in time. But for all of our graduates...please be praying for them and reach out to them with your love and congratulations. We'll still be recognizing their accomplishments in our worship this month, and we'll include some info about their plans for the future in our June mailing. As the Sunday school year concludes on the calendar, we're calling out to all of our kids to help beautify our church building windows and sanctuary space with artwork that lets people know that we're still here, still together, still celebrating new life and resurrection hope!

in all things, whether the road in front of us is smooth and well lit or rough and dim, we know the One who travels with us. Christ is risen! Indeed!

With love,

Pastor Stephan S.
