All groups, and RECOVER groups are cancelled until further notice!
We gather faithfully in all kinds of weather to renew and to our strengthen our own faith and presence of God within this world.
WORSHIP is not to only 'feel good', nor a struggle between contemporary vs. traditional Gospel, but rather a blending of all strains of Christ's Church from over the centuries as well as today!
While we are a 'litugurical church', this doesn't enslave us to to anything contrary to God's Word. The heritage enriches our worship and presents the fullness of God's Word in reading and preaching. Liturgy serves us, we do not serve LITURGY!
Before you come to experience our worship, why not hear us on our weekly podcacts, WPHM.net, podcats, OUR SAVIOUR. It is a safe way to experence us.

Our Saviour Lutheran Church is a Christian church in Port Huron, Michigan. A member of the Evangelical Lutheran Church In America (ELCA), we emphasize the relationship with God available through the Holy Spirit. Our view of God embraces his promise of steadfast love and mercy and enables us to live a life of bold trust and generous service.
The church was organized in 1920 when members from a local Lutheran congregation wanted worship services in English.
Since the church's beginnings, there have only been three pastors. Our current pastor, Don Doerzbacher, has been serving our community since April, 1993. In addition to regular worship services, his sermons can be heard every Sunday via podcast.
Martin Luther, an influential figure in the Protestant Reformation, described the exuberant freedom of, "a living, daring confidence in God's grace, so sure and certain that believers would stake their lives on it a thousand times." He also wrote, "Oh, it is a living, busy, active, mighty thing, this faith. It is impossible for it not to be doing good things unceasingly." Join our welcoming and joyful community and grow and serve in the location where God has planted you.

LIFE AT OUR SAVIOUR
The congregation originated in 1920 when members of Trinity Lutheran Church wanted to have services in the English language. The library, now the Museum of Art and History, was used until 1922 when the home on this corner was purchased. Services were held on the first floor of the home while the Pastor and his family lived upstairs.
The present sanctuary was dedicated in 1930, built at the cost of 30,000 dollars.
Radio broadcast of the 8:30 o-clock service has continued since April 2nd, 1939.
Stained glass windows were installed in 1944. There are in series, depicting the life, teaching, death, resurrection, and ascension of Jesus Christ.
Educational unit was built in 1961.
