Worship & Music

Worship is central to Our Savior’s—it is the time when all come together as a community to hear how God meets us in our everyday lives.

OSL has five worship services every weekend during the school year. Festive worship is a more traditional service, held in the Sanctuary. Celebrate worship is more contemporary in atmosphere and sound, and is held in the Celebrate Center. Except during the summer months, breakfast and fellowship are offered in The Gathering Place on Sunday mornings, from 9:30 to 11:00, and adult education opportunities are offered at 10:00.
