Learning is an important part of a life-long faith journey. Baptism calls us into a relationship with God and others. Nurtured in the Christian faith by many means, we continue to grow toward a deeper understanding of our identity as followers of Christ.

Scriptures, our Lutheran traditions, and Christian doctrines build the content of our faith. Caring relationships and deep conversation about matters of faith and life are also crucial. At Our Saviour’s we use the term “faith formation” to mean all these ways people learn and grow in faith -- this life-long journey.

Join in the journey!
