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"



Sunday School

All children, age 3+ (born 2014/2015) - Grade 6, are welcome to come and learn about God's love through Bible stories, crafts, music, and special activities.  We meet through May (except for holidays) at 10:30 a.m., in the Sunday School room off Immanuel Hall. At the end of each session we join worship in the sanctuary, either to share Holy Communion or to receive a special children's message. For more information, see our coordinator, Karen Bishop, or contact the office, 344-1926.


30th Annual LCCC Harvest Festival

Please join us on Sat. Sept. 22, noon - 3:00 p.m., at Hilldale Lutheran Church, 321 Hilldale Rd. Celebrate the season and help support our Lutheran Community Care Centre!
Enjoy delicious apple or pumpkin pie with ice cream, and coffee/tea/juice -- with refills.  Other special attractions include an outdoor BBQ with hot dogs and sausages for sale, bake and produce tables, and door prizes.
Tickets are $5 each and are available Sunday mornings after worship, at the LCCC Office - 245 Bay Street, or at the door.


Blessing of the Animals

Join us for brief devotions and blessing of the animals, Thurs. Oct. 4, at 6:30 p.m. This is a widely-held tradition on this day, the lesser festival of St. Francis of Assisi.  St. Francis called on Christians to see God in all of creation, including animals, and to care for these divine gifts.  
All pets are welcome, especially those of our neighbours around the church! (leashes and scoop bags appreciated for your pets!).


Thanksgiving Sunday

We are having our special Thanksgiving worship on Sunday, October 7, at  10:30 a.m. (Holy Communion; no Sunday School)  It is our tradition to collect canned goods and other food on this day -- to be given to our October partner, the Gathering Table's Food Cupboard.
As well, gifts of produce, flowers, and plants are welcomed, to help decorate the sanctuary. (note: because of communion we won't decorate the rail) 
Please bring your donations and gifts to worship on Oct. 7, or leave them at the church during Oct. 1-5.

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.
