Our Savior’s Lutheran Church in West Salem, Wisconsin

Giving

Electronic Giving…

is an easy and convenient way to support the ministry of the church, and participate in the work of Jesus Christ. At Our Savior’s the financial gifts we receive make possible our ministries in West Salem, Bangor, and the surrounding communities. They also, however, empower ministry in many other places. Some are local – like Lutheran Campus Ministry in La Crosse, Sugar Creek Bible Camp, and the La Crosse Area Synod. Others span the globe through our partnership with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, the World Hunger Appeal, and other global ministries.
