Sunday Morning Worship

10:15 am

As believers, Christ is at the center of everything we do. This is especially true when believers gather together for worship. Without Christ, we would have no reason to gather for worship. We would be separated from God and each other. We would cower in shame in the presence of God. But Christ, our Savior, has restored our relationship with God. This fact brings us two-fold joy. We open our hearts to receive his saving and empowering gospel. We also open our arms to offer to Christ our thanks, our lives, our everything.

This cycle of receiving from God and giving to God characterizes each of our lives. It also characterizes the way we worship when we gather together. To accomplish this, we use a form of worship that traces its roots to the apostles themselves. It’s called liturgical worship.

Christ is at the center of liturgical worship. Some parts of the liturgy stay the same each Sunday. This is to make sure that Christ is proclaimed and praised during every service. Some parts of the liturgy change every week. These changes are based on the appointed calendar of the church. This calendar makes sure that we cover the important events and teachings of Christ every year.

We understand it can be intimidating to come to worship for the first time at a church you’ve never been to before. Here's a little information about what to expect.

When you come through our doors, you will be in our gathering area. Members and guests visit before entering the sanctuary for worship. 

Where to Sit?
Feel free to sit wherever you’d like, whether the front or the back. If you need assistance an usher will help you.

What to wear?
Come as you are! You’ll find worshipers at Our Savior Lutheran wearing everything from suits to casual attire. We aren't worried about what you are wearing. 

What about the kids? 
Kids of all ages are welcome at Our Savior Lutheran. We encourage kids and their parents to grow in faith together as they hear God's word and sing his praise. A special children’s message is offered at each service. 

  • The pastor delivers a special children's message right before the sermon.
  • Speakers in the gathering area allow you to follow along with the service if you need to step out with your child.
  • After the children's message and during the sermon, young children are invited to "Children's Church" in our nursery for a Bible lesson and a craft.
  • We provide a staffed nursery to meet the needs of parents with small children.

Services
Our service includes Bible readings, a sermon, a children’s message, prayers, and singing. The entire service is printed in the service folder you receive when you come in and each part of the service is clearly marked.

What about the offering?

The members of Our Savior Lutheran have joined together to carry out the Lord’s work here in Birmingham and around the world. Guests need not feel obligated to participate in the weekly offering that supports our ministry.
