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 is one community with two distinct styles of worship. Festive worship is more traditional in form. It’s offered in the Sanctuary on Saturdays at 5:00 p.m. and Sunday mornings at 8:45 and 11:00. (If you come in the south entrance, under the canopy, the Sanctuary will be to your left.)
Celebrate worship is contemporary in style, and also is offered on Sunday mornings at 8:45 and 11:00 in the Celebrate Center. (The Celebrate Center will be to your right as you enter OSL via the south entrance.)
(How does that work, you wonder, having simultaneous worship services? Well, OSL’s pastors have gotten very good at shuttling between worship spaces when it’s their turn to preach the sermon!)

Or—even better—come by for worship and see how each format “feels” to you! And stay for breakfast, which is served in The Gathering Place (between the two worship centers) on Sunday mornings, beginning at 9:30. There is always a place for you at Our Savior’s!
