OUR SAVIOUR'S LUTHERAN CHURCH, 
THUNDER BAY, ONTARIO, CANADA
Welcome!
We invite you to be part of our community of grace and faith, active in Thunder Bay for the past 111 years. We seek to continue to be a place where people can grow in their understanding of God's forgiving love revealed through Jesus. Gathered in to worship, God's Spirit calls us out to share in word and action what it means to be people of God.

OUR VISION:

"Come share the gifts of God -

serve the world"



Children's Christmas Worship, 
Sunday, December 17, 10:30 a.m.:

Come hear and see our children share the Christmas message with us in 2 very special ways:
1.The Emoji Christmas pageant is the brainchild of Danielle, a smart phone user who has decided to share the Christmas story with her friends and family using her favourite Emojis - those little faces used to show emotion on electronic devices.  Emojis take on the roles of the Angel, Herod, the Shepherds, and more, as Danielle uses music and scripture to share the good news about the baby Jesus.
2. The Santa Lucia procession at the end of worship celebrates the Light in the midst of the darkness.  Traditionally celebrated on St. Lucy Day, Dec. 13, this procession of Santa Lucia, Kiersten Ek, and her court continues to be part of Christmas preparations in parts of the Nordic countries, Italy, and elsewhere.

Our Saviour's Lutheran Church
is located 
at the corner 
of River and Farrand Streets, 
Thunder Bay, Ontario


 
Our congregation is located on 
the traditional territory  of the Ojibway of the
Fort William

'Reconciliation':
Reserve 107. This powerful film centres on the true story of what happens when a group of Mennonites and Lutherans in the town of Laird SK discover that the land on which they live is in fact the former reserve of the Young Chippewayan First Nation.  Through storytelling, we hear about an unique movement in history, where relationships are formed.
