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"



'Messy Church':
'Messy Church is an outreach ministry for children and their caregivers. Founded in England, it is now present across Canada.  Participants take part in crafts, simple worship time, and a light meal.  
Our next event will be held after school, Thursday, February 23, 4 p.m., in Immanuel Hall.
Those able to help with the crafts, music, and food, see Karen.

Pancake Supper:
Enjoy a few calories before Lent by attending our Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper: Tues. Feb. 28, 5 p.m. All are welcome.  Thank you to all who have signed up to help. Please have your donated supplies at the church by Mon. Feb. 27.
As part of the tradition of the supper, the freewill offering will be given to The Underground Gym.  The Underground Gym on Simpson Street provides free access to multiple activities and meals for youth in need, ages 4 - 17+ years. Its founder, Peter Panetta, will tell us about its work at the beginning of worship on Feb. 26.



Blessings to you all for 2017 from Luther Village. Here we are beginning our 53rd year of outdoor ministry. 

Staff Recruitment:

It’s time to start thinking about what you want to do for the spring and summer this year. Luther Village gives incredible life experience, is hard work, is extremely meaningful, has you meeting many people and probably life-long friends and even pays better than working at Disney (yep, it does!) You will be trained, educated and learn more than you ever expected. You will be working in the great outdoors, having opportunity to canoe, kayak, go fishing and hiking, to be involved in the programs of Luther Village and work among other Christians sharing God’s love with everyone. It’s pretty much a dream job really!

LV is accepting applications now for staffing (aged 18+) in all areas: Kitchen, Program, Maintenance, Lifeguard, Office, with a deadline of February 28. Job descriptions are available on www.luthervillage.ca under ‘Leadership’. Interviews will take place early March with hiring completed by March 20.

Anyone interested in volunteering (16 years old) and Leaders-In-Training participants (completed grade 10 by the end of June)? Applications are also being accepted now!

'Reconciliation':
If you missed Bishop Elaine Sauer's screening and discussion of the recent documentary, 'Reserve 107', you can find it here: 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.
