OUR SAVIOUR'S LUTHERAN CHURCH,
THUNDER BAY, ONTARIO, CANADA
On November 8, 2015, Immanuel Ev. Lutheran Church of Thunder Bay and Our Saviour's Lutheran Church of Thunder Bay agreed to the merger of Immanuel into Our Saviour's, effective November 9. We now are centring our ministry at Our Saviour's at River and Farrand Streets. We invite you to be part of this 'new' community of grace and faith, active in Thunder Bay for the past 110 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.
A NEW VISION:
Council has developed this statement of vision for our congregation:
"Come share the gifts of God -
serve the world"
Join our council members throughout the coming year in setting goals and strategies for mission related to this vision.

Refugee Household Needs:
The Thunder Bay Inter-Church Refugee Committee has prepared a Basic Housing Needs list for the Syrian family of six that is expected to arrive in the near future. Please check the front hall bulletin board to see what is still needed, or contact Pastor Matthew, our representative on the committee. Also, if you can donate shampoo, soaps, cleaning supplies, towels, kitchen utensils, paper goods, or anything small you think the family may need, please leave them in the box beside the wooden doors in the front hall. Thank you for your support!
