What to Expect

Worship

At Our Savior, we believe that God meets us in worship giving us His gifts. Our 9 AM Sunday morning service is a traditional, liturgical service that features music on a piano and pipe organ. We are developing a special service designed with families in mind for Sunday evenings beginning in August. Our messages explore how God’s Word speaks into our lives today organized into Biblically grounded topical sermon series.

Kids & Families

We love kids! Children and youth are encouraged to worship with their parents throughout the Sunday morning service. If your child needs some extra space to wiggle, we have a nursery room connected to the sanctuary. We hope to see you and your family sometime soon.

Youth

God has called everyone to be a part of His ministry. As our youth are comfortable, we encourage and equip them to be an active part of Sunday services. After worship, our youth meet for Bible Study, activities, and fellowship. For more information on Youth Group, contact Sara Agee.

Communion

In Holy Communion, God comes and meets with us giving us the very body and blood of Jesus in, with, and under simple bread and wine. Communion is a special meal for all confessing and believing Christians. As Lutheran Christians, we believe Christ’s body and blood are truly present, and in this meal, we receive the forgiveness of our sins and power for Christian living. If you are in true repentance and have faith in these words, “given and shed for you for the forgiveness of sins,” we urge you to participate. Grape juice and gluten-free wafers are available by request to those serving communion. Just ask for it and we would be happy to provide these for you. If you have questions about communion, our pastor would love to talk to you and answer any questions you might have.>Learn More

Sunday Studies

On each Sunday after worship, we gather to study God’s Word together at 10:30 AM. The classes are led by people like you diving into a host of different topics and books of the Bible. We’d love to have you join us for this special time in God’s Word.>Learn More

Get Connected

Life is a journey with many twists and turns. As you explore what it means to be a part of our community of faith, we invite you to take part in The On Ramp, a course that explores the basics of the Christian faith and what it means to be a part of a local community of believers in this place.

Worship FAQ's

When do in-person services take place?

In-person indoor worship takes place every Sunday at 9:00 am. 

Who can attend in-person worship services? 

Anyone who is not showing known symptoms of COVID-19 is welcome to attend. We encourage people who might be more vulnerable to the virus to make prayerful and wise decisions about what is best for their personal health. That applies to those 65 and older and those with underlying health issues.

Do I need to register in order to attend? 

Not anymore. According to state regulations, registration for contact-tracing purposes is no longer required. We will continue with temperature checks, and ask that if you are sick, exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19, or have family members who are ill, that you refrain from joining us. Please remember to use face coverings, wash your hands or use hand sanitizer, and practice physical distancing.

Are children welcome?

Yes! Children are encouraged to worship with their families!  As with all who attend worship, children should not be showing known symptoms of COVID-19. No childcare or children’s programming will be provided. Children must sit with a parent or guardian.

Social Distancing - How will seating be managed in the worship services?

While our sanctuary has more than enough room, seating capacity is reduced based on Alameda County guidelines, Our Savior is ensuring that proper distancing is maintained during all worship services. Designated seating areas for use will be clearly marked on each pew to allow adequate social distancing space.   

Will there be specific entrance and exit plans to maintain social distancing? 

Yes! We ask that you enter through the center doors through the courtyard and then exit following the conclusion of the service through the side doors nearest where you were seated for the service.

Is Our Savior following CDC and Health Department regulations and guidelines?

Yes. COVID-19 is still impacting our community, and your safety and health are important to us.  Keep in mind that any movement outside of your home does carry with it certain risks, especially where large numbers of people are gathered.  All worship venues are sanitized before and after services and restrooms are cleaned after every use.  Hand sanitizer is available for all worshipers.  And as always, individuals feeling under the weather or are considered “high-risk” are encouraged to worship with us online.

Are masks required?

Yes, please wear a mask while on the Our Savior campus. Current guidelines require this.  All volunteers and staff members will be required to wear masks.
