Welcome to Our Savior’s Youth Page!

The youth groups of Our Savior consist of two groups — the Junior Youth (6th through 8th grades) and the High School Youth (9th through 12th grades) and they are a continuation of the Word & Sacrament ministry that we are blessed to receive at Our Savior.  You will regularly see students serving as acolytes, crucifers, choir or handbell members, altar guild assistants, and ushers on Sunday mornings. Outside of the parish walls, our Youth in Mission efforts provide opportunities for the youth to serve others both here at home and across the globe.

Of course, we also like to have fun together. We go on road trips, play paintball, have all-night lock-ins, do overnights at Cedar Point, and plenty of other things!

11-16-2020: Twenty-third Week after Trinity

My hope is that all is well with you, and that you are already finding opportunity to rejoice in the Lord, not only today, but each and every day. I say all of this knowing full well that so many of you are experiencing struggle after struggle, and affliction after affliction. I know your stories—your…

11-09-2020: Twenty-second Week after Trinity

I haven’t spoken much of the election, except perhaps a few online comments here and there to express my usual discontent with pastors for not getting more involved. I did this after reading an article sharing what I would say were low turnout numbers for Christians. And when I say low, I don’t mean less…

11-02-2020: Week of All Saints

I should start this morning by mentioning I experienced a “flux capacitor” moment last night in my garage. If you’ve seen the movie “Back to the Future” then you’ll know that Doc Brown came up with the idea for the device that makes time travel possible right after he hit his head. Well, I was…

10-25-2020: Week of Reformation Day

I’m wondering… have you ever experienced a moment when you felt like you were at the bottom of the barrel in your station? Like you were the worst accountant in the firm? Like you were the least valuable engineer on the project or the worst teacher in your school? Like you were the least relevant…

10-19-2020: Nineteenth Week after Trinity

We’ve experienced a handful of very busy weeks here at Our Savior. And while I’ll admit they have unquestionably resulted in accomplishments about which we can all smile with Godly pride, the labor leading up to them is still being felt. We’re all pretty tired. It takes a lot of work to pull together three…

10-12-2020: Eighteenth Week after Trinity

“Therefore, my dear friends, flee from idolatry. I speak to sensible people; judge for yourselves what I say” (1 Corinthians 10:14). Saint Paul wrote those words to the Corinthian church just as he was about to begin explaining the doctrine of Altar Fellowship, which when you really get down to the nuts and bolts of…

10-05-2020: Seventeenth Week after Trinity

The countdown has started. Five days until a powerhouse weekend here at Our Savior. Saturday we’ll enjoy a day-long conference filled with tier-one personalities. On Sunday we’ll gather together to celebrate our school’s 40 years of service in the community, again, being joined by appreciative newsmakers. To wrap it all up, on Monday we’ll host…

09-28-2020: Sixteenth Week after Trinity

Julius Caesar is the one who said that experience is the best teacher. At least I think he did. I’ll check on that after I finish typing this morning. If I’m wrong, I’ll fix what I wrote. If it’s still here when you’re reading it, then I was right. That being said, the thing about…

09-21-2020: Fifteenth Week after Trinity

I don’t mean to alarm you, but it’s 44 degrees outside right now. And this past Saturday before an early morning meeting with the Elders, I noticed the leaves on one of the trees near the church’s bell tower beginning a course toward yellow. Even before the sun had pierced the horizon, in the dim…

09-14-2020: Fourteenth Week after Trinity

The previous Sunday’s Bible study here at Our Savior got a little tense near the end. The uneasiness was clearly painted on the faces of most of the participants. And why? Because during the discussion, somehow we steered into the topic of excommunication, and as we did, I offered the observation that for the most…
