International Missions

The congregation and staff at Christ Our Savior place  a high priority on mission work and supporting the Body of Christ throughout the world. We are called by our Savior to "Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to all creation" (Mark 16:15). As God gives each of us our vocation, He calls some to go and live in a foreign culture and share with the people there about the love of Jesus. We support four overseas missionaries who are serving the Lutheran Church around the globe.

National Missions

Mission work doesn't only happen internationally. The is a great need to share the Good News of God's salvation to everyone, including those who live in our own country. Christ Our Savior has partnered with Family of God Lutheran Church in southwest Detroit for over 10 years.
Family of God is a non-profit Lutheran ministry committed to bringing the transformative power of the gospel to the lives of those living in southwest Detroit. They are committed to building authentic relationships with those they serve and offering programs that support them in physical, spiritual, and emotional capacities. Christ Our Savior supports them financially as well as having many of our members volunteer at their location. Rev. Jim Hill  and Rev. Tyler Cronkright serve as the pastors at Family of God.
