Welcome Back to your Father's House
by Miriam Rossow on June 4th, 2020
Being responsible in our decisions and practices we are now at a point where we can resume in-person worship services at Christ Our Savior! If you’re like many, it feels like it’s been a really long time since we could gather in fellowship in-person, encouraging one another as we sing praises to the risen Lord. Why is that? Because it has been – almost 3 months!
Worship, Activities, & the Coronavirus
by Miriam Rossow on March 16th, 2020
At the same time, we want to take heed of what is being advised by those in authority. We want to care for our neighbors by not sharing germs unnecessarily. Your Pastors, staff, and leadership do not take any of these decisions lightly. We understand and want you to understand that we believe sharing Word and Sacrament ministry is important, beneficial, and necessary. We will continue this Word and Sacrament ministry although we do not know what it will look like right now. We have a desire and commitment to serve our church family and those that are in our community with the life-giving message of Jesus, in Word and deed. We believe that we can both serve our family and community while also being considerate of our neighbors. Until further notice we are suspending all our weekly activities including our Wednesday Lenten meals and services as well as Sunday morning Worship, Sunday School, and Bible Study.
We Want Children in Worship: Children Share
by Miriam Rossow on February 5th, 2020
But when children are in worship, lots of sharing is taking place—and that’s a very caring thing. This can be understood very easily from many perspectives.
The Season of Epiphany
by Miriam Rossow on February 2nd, 2020
During the season of Epiphany the church focuses on Jesus coming to the Gentile world. The Gentiles were anyone not of Jewish decent. They were the foreigners, the people that did not belong to God’s chosen family.
Children Share their Faith
by Miriam Rossow on December 17th, 2019
This Wednesday, December 18 our children in the Sunday School and the Early Childhood Center will be leading us in worship. .... The children are excited to share the important story of Jesus as they take us on a journey to Bethlehem and the manger to meet the baby boy, Jesus.
Welcomed and Accepted
by Miriam Rossow on December 11th, 2019
And yet this basic principal of hospitality or openness to people is one that many of us, including me, struggle with in our everyday lives. Any choice we make about how and when we say hello or make eye contact can be taken in many different ways. We can be ridiculed for our kindness and ridiculed for our lack of kindness. It can be a difficult situation to know how and when to be 'hospitable'.
A Place to Call Home
by Miriam Rossow on December 3rd, 2019
Christmas is my favorite season of the church year especially when it comes to decorations. I love the lights, the candles, the nativities, and the greens. I love the music of Christmas. I always decorate the Saturday and Sunday after Thanksgiving and leave the decorations up through Epiphany!

We definitely want your kids with us in worship: Children Grow
by Miriam Rossow on November 4th, 2019
By Rev. Joel S. Eden, Associate PastorWe definitely want your kids with us in worship, because children grow in worship!Growth implies change, but growth does not always imply good change. A child can grow in maturity, skills, knowledge, wisdom, etc. but a child can also grow to be a real—umm—not-nice-person. (So can adults, by the way.) Growth can be good or bad.Once a strawberry seed begins to g...
