SIGN ME UP!

Membership at Our Savior’s is not just about being a part of a group – it’s about living as disciples of Jesus and gathering in a community of the faithful to be fed and nourished by God’s gifts of grace.

Our Savior’s welcomes people from all backgrounds, who come with a variety of gifts and talents, but who also experience many kinds of brokenness.  We are all in need of God’s embrace through the crucified and risen Jesus – and we welcome you to join us!

One does not need to be a member to participate in activities and ministries at Our Savior’s.  Just come and be a part of what God is doing here in our community and the world beyond.  You are welcome!

For many, however, membership is important – a sense of belonging to something bigger than ourselves.  So, just how do you become a member here?

Become a Member

  • Baptism: Whether a child or an adult, being baptized here makes you a member of the congregation.
  • Confirmation: Young people in our confirmation program who are not already members of this congregation through their baptism here or a previous transfer become members as they affirm their faith.
  • Transfer: Persons from other Lutheran congregations can transfer their membership to Our Savior’s.
  • New member class: Kind of a “confirmation” for adults – complete with the opportunity to affirm your baptism and join Our Savior’s.  This class is offered periodically during the year.

The most important thing is this: no matter your background, or how many skeletons are in your closet, we want you to be a part of this community of faith.  Come, worship, and walk the journey of faith with us.

So, whether you are interested in formal membership, or just want to connect with this community of faith, contact Pastor Jon at pastorjon@oursaviorswestsalem.org, Pastor Jean at pastorjean@oursaviorswestsalem.org, or just contact us!
