We are glad you are with us and pray a blessing on your worship today! Visitors are asked to sign the Guest Register on the table in the Narthex (entrance) and sign the Welcome Book giving your address and phone number.

Living Savior’s MISSION is to know the love of Christ and serve God so that the Holy Spirit may work through us to bring others to Christ.

New Adult Bible Study: “Thinking Lutheran” Join us as we explore the teachings of Martin Luther that define what it means to be a Lutheran. These truths that Martin Luther held too, defined the reformation and still define us today. We will explore the topics of the two realms, the two kinds of righteousness and what it means to be a theologian of the cross. We will meet every Sunday at 9:50 in Klein Hall. I hope you will join us. Vicar Kevin
