Our Savior Lutheran Church

Who We Are

Our Savior Lutheran Church is located in and serves the community of Grants Pass, Oregon.
We are a member of the Evangelical Lutheran Synod, headquartered in Mankato, Minnesota.

We are a Biblical church, acknowledging the Bible as true, inspired by God in the original texts, and without error.

We are a confessional church, clearly confessing what we believe on the basis of the Bible.

We are a liturgical church. Our worship is centered and focused upon Christ and His word.

Holy Communion

As a rule the Lords Supper is celebrated the first, and third Sundays of the month. Those attending our church for the first time are asked to consult with the pastor before communing.

For more information about us please contact us.

Our Mission

The mission of Our Savior Lutheran church is to faithfully proclaim the good news of Christ to all who gather here, and to reach out with that good news to our community.

GOOD NEWS!

THIS SUNDAY, MAY 17, WE WILL RESUME SERVICES. They will be at the regular times, 9:00 a.m. at Our Savior and 11:15 at Faith. No Bible Class at this time.

We will use the brief Office of Prime for the Easter Season, followed by Holy Communion.

There will be no “socializing.” Plan to arrive just before the service and plan on leaving immediately after. We will designate seats to maintain “social distancing” during the service. I will continue to record the services for those who cannot come or should not be out due to underlying medical conditions.

We are leaning it up to you to decide whether it is appropriate for you to be out and about. I must say that every day of our lives we trust in the Lord to provide for us. We take reasonable precautions in everything from the way we drive to how we care for our health and well-being. Whether it is from COVID-19 or some other illness, we will eventually reach the end of this life and exchange this mortal for immortality, so while we are prudent, we do not live in fear. So use sanctified good sense to decide whether you will attend or not.

If you are not able to attend, or consider it unwise, work with me to be sure that you continue to receive the Word and sacrament.  I will continue to shepherd you!

I have been in regular receipt of information from the State of Oregon, and have received confirmation that we are officially in “Phase 1” of reopening. You can find information here: https://govstatus.egov.com/reopening-oregon#countyStatuses

Here is the official description:

  • Phase 1
  • First reopening stage, allowed in specific counties that qualify. Includes limited reopening of restaurants and bars, personal services, gyms, and malls. Gatherings of up to 25 people allowed for recreational, social, cultural, civic or faith events – with physical distancing requirements.

Our regular attendance in Medford does not exceed 25. In Grants Pass we are usually about 30, but I do not expect that everyone will attend. If there are more than 25, we can put chairs up in the narthex, which qualifies as a different room.

Masks are not addressed in the state guidelines, but I will wear one when I am close to someone, as in serving Holy Communion.

Cordially and prayerfully, in Christ,

Pastor Bryant
