We are created to belong. However, we connect in different ways. Sometimes it might be at larger, more informal gatherings; other times in smaller, more intimate settings. We also connect around different things. Do you have a hunger for learning new things? Or do you just want the chance to sit and talk with others? Or do you want to be active, helping others? Do you want to meet solely with those of the same gender or age—or do you want to mix it up? All of these possibilities exist at Our Saviour’s Lutheran Church. What would be best for you in connecting with other people?
Fellowship EventsContact Us
The majority of our fellowship events are intergenerational–which is an incredible gift that our culture does not normally offer. In this congregation, we have the opportunity to learn how to care, support and enjoy one another. However, sometimes we focus more on adults and other times more on children and youth—and still other times it is simply for all ages.
For adults mainly . . .
Imagine sharing a delicious gourmet dinner with your spouse or friends at the “Feast of St. Valentine” while the youth of the church serve participants in high style
Enjoy a meal that is a fundraiser for Habitat for Humanity, maybe purchase something from a Youth Silent Auction, and cherish the ability to support a good cause
For all ages . . .
- Enjoy a “Night with The Bombers”—watching the minor league baseball team, enjoying an all-you-can-eat buffet while kids play unlimited games
- Delight in a special Easter Breakfast, a congregational potluck, or a Christmas Potluck/Silent Auction
- Comfort Food Cook Off, supporting the homeless in our community.
- Feast of St. Valentine sponsored by the youth of OSLC as a thank you for the generous support the congregation gives. Enjoy a gourmet meal with your sweetheart or a larger group.
For children and youth . . .

- Sing Christmas carols and deliver small gifts to people who are home bound

In smaller groups, there is more of an opportunity to develop relationships of trust and support as we go through life joys and struggles. Though there are many other types of small groups available, these two are focused more according to age.
Young adults and families meet for lunch the last Sunday of each month after the late service. Through laughter and support, good relationships are formed!

This bi-monthly small group is focused on fellowship and service. This group graciously welcomes people, usually a bit older than the young adults and families!
