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 112 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"



'Pathways to Prayer'
The Lay Academy of our Lutheran Theological Seminary in Saskatoon, sponsored by the 4 western synods of our church, is presenting this new two-part webinar workshop:
Sat. Nov. 17 and 24, 11:30 - 2:00 p.m., at Hilldale; $25 for one session, $45 for both.
Join Dr. Faith Nostbakken for a guided tour to 'Pathways to Prayer'.  We'll look over what it means to meet God in prayer, how our personalities may influence the way we pray, what Scripture says about prayer, and above all, how we might spend time in prayer itself.  We'll also consider the treasure of the Psalms as the earliest prayer book of our tradition, one that can still be a rich guide and source of prayer for us today.
See Pastor Matthew to register, or visit Pathways to Prayer .

'Christmas Candles' Christmas Tea
Our annual Tea is being held on Sat. Dec. 1, noon - 2:00 p.m. There will be tea, coffee, and refreshments to enjoy.  Crafts, baking, Toonie Bags, and decorations will be featured.  The ticket price is $6.00. See you there!



Remembrance Day
As part of our worship on Sun. Nov. 11, we observed a moment of silence and special prayers, signalling the 100th anniversary of the end of WWI, and remembering all those involved in wars before and since. 
The Sunday School children and friends helped us to commemorate this special day, making this Peace banner, made up of 100 poppies, and handing out toy soldiers for us to take home - to remind us to pray for those in the Armed Forces.
Thank you to J. Brian Peden, who made a new carving of the Remembrance Day Poppy and Cross for use in this and future services. The cross was dedicated during the service.
Also on Remembrance Day, our chime bells were rung 100 times at sunset. Bells of Peace was a nation-wide commemoration of what happened on Nov. 11, 1918.

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.
