Welcome to Our Savior’s Lutheran Church in West Salem, Wisconsin. We are a member of the La Crosse Area Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA). As a community of faith, we embrace the varied voices that make up our congregation from the very youngest to the oldest and everyone in between.

Worship opportunities during this time

Beginning August 9, join us on Sundays at 10:30 AM for “Zoom Communion!”
What’s “Zoom Communion?” A short (20-25 minute) worship service with Holy Communion, on the Zoom internet platform. You stay home and safe, and provide bread and wine/juice for yourself – we provide a message and a time for prayer. You might even want to bake your own communion bread (click here for a recipe).
Zoom works best with mic and camera, but you can join without. Or you can phone in (contact the office for the number to use.)
Sunday School videos are also posted on the videos page. Click the “Covid-19 Response” for more information on accompanying material.
