Christ calls us to be servants to all. Empowered by Christ, the Christian Church can transform lives by bringing the love of Christ into the community. Lives are changed with a relationship with Jesus in His kingdom, here today and forever.
It is the will of our Lord Jesus Christ that His disciples should preach the Gospel to the whole world (Mark 16:16, Matthew 28:18-20, Acts 1:8). That Christ’s mission for His Church might be carried 8 out according to His will, He commanded that Christians unite in worship (Hebrews 10:24-25), practice fellowship with one another (Acts 2:42), witness to all people (Acts 1:8), help each other grow in the Word (Ephesians 4:11-14), serve the needs of all people in Christian love (Ephesians 4:7-16, Mark 10:42-44, John 13:35, Galatians 6:10), administer the Office of the Keys as His Church (John 20:21-23, Matthew 18:15-20), and maintain decency and order (I Corinthians 14:40) in the Church.

We became members of Our Savior many years ago when our sons attended the preschool here. At the time, John was not attending church and had not for many years. Glenda would attend various churches sporadically. So the preschool was an entry point for John and Glenda but that alone was not enough to join the church. We were also involved in Cub Scouts Pack 114, in fact, John was the Cub Master and Glenda was a den leader. Part of the scouting program is “Duty to God and country”. We then started to attend regularly and eventually became members.
Why we joined is not really as important as why we stay. After all, it is easy to go from church to church and join one after another. We found the pastors and the congregation to be a friendly and welcoming group of individuals with a strong faith and foundation in Jesus Christ. Over the years, we have made many dear friends and now Our Savior is like our family. We have received much love and spiritual support at Our Savior. In return, we volunteer and help in various ways to support our family here at Our Savior while staying focus on the true reason, Jesus Christ. John believes that without the people here at Our Savior he would still be un-churched and weak in faith.
Now in the last two years, we have seen more changes than in the previous 30 years. Pastor Nicklas retired after thirteen years of faithful service. Then we had the privilege of having the leadership and friendship of Intentional Interim Pastor Kirk for almost two years. Under his leadership and the involvement of the entire congregation, a call was issued to Pastor Abram. Pastor Abram has only been here for a short time but everybody is very pleased and excited he is here as our spiritual leader. Exciting times are ahead of us and the church is working hard – Serving Christ, Serving Others, Changing Lives. That is more than a slogan, it is the way we live here at Our Savior. We plan on staying another thirty years.

Our Savior Lutheran has been my second home since 2004. Attending PreK-8th grade here has been a joy! The staff has brought me to attend church service here because of their love and dedication towards the ministry our Lord. Walking into our church, you are filled with happiness and love because of the friendly Christ-loving environment! Teaching Sunday school here has been a blessing to me, because I am now enriching my students' lives with our faith, just like how the Our Savior Lutheran staff enriched me!
Members since 2006
My children and I started coming to Our Savior Lutheran Church in 1990 off and on when my daughter was in the 3-yr-old program in the Pre-school. We decided to join Our Savior Lutheran Church permanently because of the welcome we received every time we came. Now Our Savior Lutheran is a part of our extended family and we are so grateful that it has become a part of our lives.
Members since 1994
We have enjoyed membership here and consider everyone at Our Savior our family. Jesus tells us, "Love one another as I have loved you," and Our Savior Lutheran makes it easy for us to do that.
Our Savior feeds our faith by offering many opportunities for growth. There are Sunday morning, Tuesday evening, Wednesday morning, and small group Bible studies. We not only learn, but enjoy Christian fellowship at the same time.
Members since 1971
We love Our Savior because it has become our second home. Our children started here in Sunday School, the Preschool, Elementary and onto Confirmation. This church's congregation is a fabulous, loving group of Christ-loving people.
Members since 1994
We were looking for a family oriented, small congregation as we were planning our wedding. One of our family members was part of the choir of Our Savior Lutheran Church and invited us to attend. It just took for us to attend to one service to know that this is where we wanted to worship God. We felt in love with the church and their members, we can truly feel God's presence here during every service. Needless to say, we got married here in 2010, baptized our first child in 2012 and are planning the baptism of our youngest son December 2015. Our family lives by the church mission "Serving Christ, Serving Others, Changing Lives."

We have three services each Sunday. Our 8:00 am and 11:00 am services are Traditional while our 9:30 am service is Contemporary. Holy Communion is served at all three services
Holy Communion is a gift from God. It is the Lord’s Table to which He invites us. As we prepare to receive the Sacrament, we might ask ourselves the following questions: Do I realize that I am a sinful human being? Do I understand that our Lord gave His life, His body and blood, for me on the cross that I might be forgiven of my sins and in His resurrection raised me to a new life? Do I realize that in the Lord’s Supper He gives me His true body and blood that I might be assured of forgiveness and that my faith is strengthened that I might serve my Lord and through Him serve others? If you are a baptized Christian and share these Biblical truths, please join us in the celebration of the Sacrament. If you have not yet received instruction, please come forward for a blessing, crossing your arms over your chest to indicate you are not receiving the elements.
ABSOLUTELY! We are always glad to welcome people who haven’t been to a church in a long time. We try to make our services “user friendly” and make it so that people can easily find their way.
NO! Many people come to our church who are not Lutheran.
You can expect a friendly place where we gather together to praise our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for what He has done for us in His death and resurrection. We are not perfect and that is why we celebrate God’s forgiveness.
There is no dress code. You will find people wearing suits and also very casual clothes. All we ask is that it be decent.
During our 9:30am service, we have a special children’s message followed by Sunday School for toddlers through 8th grade. Our high school youth meet at 11:00am for their Bible study hour. The nursery is available during the 9:30am and 11:00am services for children 3years old and younger.
Yes. Our pastor would be happy to discuss this with you. He can also make recommendations of licensed counselors who could help.
The best way to answer this question is to come and see. There are activities and studies that cover a variety of ages and interests. Examples include, Bible study, Youth Group, Sunday School, Women’s Group, Bells, Choir, Praise Team, and more!
The best way to get involved is to show up for whatever interests you. Most activities do not require any registrations.
If you are a member of another Lutheran church you can ask them to transfer your membership to Our Savior Lutheran Church and School. If you are not a member of another Lutheran church we ask that you attend a Connections Class. These classes are offered throughout the year and there is no obligation in attending. The class covers the basic teachings of the Bible and the Lutheran Church.
Our 8:00am and 11:00am service uses more traditional music with organ accompaniment. Our 9:30am service uses more praise music and is led by our Praise Team with keyboard, guitars, and drums.
We certainly do! We serve students from 18months through 8th grade. Visit our school website HERE for more details.
I’m glad you asked. We are located in Plantation, a southeast suburb of Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. We are located on 5th Street and University Boulevard. We are the church with the fountain.
