About Us

Our Mission is to Love, Serve, and Strengthen All People in Christ Jesus.

Our Saviour's Lutheran Church rose out of Norwegian roots. Determined to be faithful in worship and strong in fellowship and service, we have maintained meaningful customs of years gone by. Descendants of other nations have been willingly received and made a part of our family. Today, 60 percent claim a German heritage, 30 percent Norwegian and Dane, & 10 percent other heritage.

We are a part of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) and the East-Central Synod of Wisconsin (ECSW). Our baptized membership as of 12/31/2014 was 1,237.

We are served by Reverend Patricia Schutz and Youth and Family Ministries Director Jamie Diestelhorst.

Holy Communion
Holy Communion is served at all weekly worship services, as well as other church festivals. We believe that in the bread and wine, Jesus' body and blood is given for all people for the forgiveness of sins. At Christ's invitation, you are welcome to the Lord's table.
First communion classes are offered for children in fifth grade as part of our confirmation program. However, classes are also offered for children wishing to participate in Holy Communion at a younger age.
