Beautiful Savior Lutheran Church is here to serve you.
We think the best possible way to serve you is through the good
news of Jesus Christ as revealed in the Holy Scriptures (the Bible).
It is our highest goal to take care of your spiritual needs. We exist to
share with all who walk through our doors God’s message of how to be
right with him.
We believe that all people need a Savior because all people have failed
to meet God's requirements. God demands perfection...and there is
not a single person who is perfect. But at Beautiful Savior we have
hope. God offers Christ's perfection for your imperfection.
He offers Christ's death for your life. He offers forgiveness for
your wrongs. He offers a home with him...because Christ made his
home among us. Find all that God offers here at Beautiful
Savior. Find a love that never disappoints. Find a joy that
cannot be stolen or crushed. Find a perspective that gives true
wisdom. Find a friend who never fails.
We pray that we will be able to serve you. We care about your wellbeing here on earth. We pray
that we can offer you a loving Christian family filled with people who cry with
you when you are crying...people who rejoice with you when you are rejoicing.
Worship at Beautiful Savior
Every church has its own style of worship. We think you'll enjoy the
services at Beautiful Savior...but as in any church, it may take a couple of
Sundays to become accustomed to our way of praising God and proclaiming what he
has done. Each week the service is printed in the worship folder. You’ll
find the Scripture readings and prayers printed there for you. You are
certainly welcome to bring along your own Bible and follow along if you
Our worship services have one major theme. The sermon, hymns,
prayers and music all revolve around the Scripture readings for that
week. Music certainly is an important part of our services. Loud or
soft, in unison or rich harmony...all our praises are music to God as we
respond to hearing His Word. When pondering God's love for us and
our opportunity to praise and thank him for that love...we recall the
words of the Psalm writer: "I rejoiced with those who said
to me, 'Let us go to the house of the LORD'"- Psalm 122:1.
The Elements of
The services also usually include the following parts in a variety of

'The Invocation')...We call on the name of our Savior God as we

acknowledge that we have not always done what God asks. Then
we are assured of forgiveness because of what Jesus Christ has done

and from Jesus himself in the Gospels. The pastor usually gives a
brief explanation with each reading.

sermon. We learn of God's grace, we are assured of his promise
of eternal life in heaven through Jesus, we hear his guidance for
our lives as His people living in this fallen world.

hear one last assurance of God's care.
Mixed throughout these different parts of our service are
hymns and short songs to praise God.
Our worship uses traditional forms and modern language and application.
The traditional brings us the best from God's Church throughout the
ages...and the contemporary brings God's promises and his will into our
daily lives. We hope you enjoy both.
Often times people have questions about offerings. "When will
they take the offering?" "How will it be
collected?" "How much am I expected to give?"
"Do they want visitors to contribute too?" These are
typical questions or concerns about church offerings.
You may wish at first to learn more about our ministry before bringing
your offerings to God through our church.
The Bible teaches that our offerings to God should reflect our belief
that all we have is his gift to us. It teaches us that with our
offerings we worship and honor God. Like most Christians...our
members bring offerings to God through their church.
Since offerings are gifts of love for God...no one dictates
what each person is to give.
We pass an offering plate during the service so that our worship may
include bringing such gifts to God. Offering envelopes are
available (this helps keep our gifts a private matter known only to God).
We look to Christ and his love to motivate us in our
giving...whether it is a child putting in coins or an adult writing out a
You may indeed learn more about our church before you given an
offering...but you are always welcome to participate as your heart leads
you to give.
The Worst that Can
Attending church somewhere for the first time can be intimidating.
Here are some common worries:
"I would just die if they made me stand up
and say something." We assure you...we won't embarrass you in
this way. We want you to feel comfortable and at home with us.
Church should be an enjoyable and uplifting experience.
We promise to do all we can so you can relax and learn about your

encourage parents of young children to attend worship services with
their children. This begins the good habits of attending worship
services at an early age. There is also a small nursery where
you can go with your young child or children if needed.
"I know I will feel out of place." We hope that this website will ease your
mind...but if you have a question still, please call. Once you
arrive, please don't hesitate to say, "I am new.” Some of
our members have been around for many, many years. Others are
new just like you are. Either way...someone will be happy to
help you out and answer your questions.

you see the people of our congregation to be ordinary people like
yourself. We want to help you and support you.
"I just want to watch at first and I know
that they will try to involve me or sign me up." It is unpleasant to be pressured or to be
part of a "membership drive" as though we were heads of
cattle...isn't it? We believe that church membership should be
a voluntary thing...and that the most important thing is to trust in
the Lord Jesus Christ for forgiveness of sins and salvation.
It takes time for this to be cultivated. People need time to
evaluate and decide if they wish further involvement.

Bible and faith in Jesus. Everyone is here to learn. You won't
