Immeasurably More Campaign - Our Savior Lutheran Church.
This is the video we have created to kick off our Immeasurably More Campaign to build a new church facility. Please allow a little more than ten minutes to view it. It is a video that includes the history of our church. This is why we have chosen the Campaign Theme "Hope for Our Future-Building on Our Past". Different families from church volunteered to partake in the making of this video. Thank you to everyone.
HOPE FOR OUR FUTURE BUILDING ON OUR PAST
This is our Immeasurably More Campaign we will be kicking on on January 24, 2021!
Our first hope for this campaign is to INFORM everyone of the need for a new church building, financial details, possible floor plans, and to answer ANY AND ALL questions you may have.
Our second hope for the campaign is to INSPIRE everyone to give to the campaign! This for sure will be financial giving, but it will also be spiritual giving and giving of your time and service.
Our third piece of the campaign is to make the IMPACT we have worked to make. To build the structure in a way that will meet our growing needs as a church of God.

PASTOR GREGORY STUCKWISCH
Greetings to my brothers and sisters,
I am so privileged to serve our Lord and all of you at Our Savior Lutheran Church. When visiting the congregation before I accepted the call to be your pastor, I asked a question to the committee, why me and not a new graduate from seminary. I was told, “Because we want this congregation to move to the next level.” God has blessed our congregation with faithful servants and committed volunteers for 95 years. God’s word and the Holy Spirit has given us tremendous opportunities. What a blessing it is for all of us to be part of the plan God has set before His children in this place. To God be the Glory.
Statement from Lyle
“Thy kingdom come Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.” I am honored and excited to pursue with you God’s plan to use Our Savior Lutheran Church for His purpose here on earth - expanding His kingdom in our community and as far as His will allows us to reach.

"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." This is one of my favorite Bible verses and I know that with Christ's guidance and strength we can do and achieve!

I am so excited for this journey with this amazing team of volunteers, our congregation and our community! THIS is the time - I feel God is calling us to do this NOW! We will be doing this for our present congregation and for our future generations. We want our ministry to grow, and in our current structure, it can not. Join with us as we take these steps together, in faith, and with God by our sides.
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.” Proverbs 3:5-6 is one of my favorite verses. As we begin this journey together in Christ, please keep this verse in your heart. I am anxious to inform all of you of our plans we have for our church as we moved forward to our future trusting in the Lord as always.

Our God is always in control and I feel like He is calling us now to do something great than ourselves. We have this incredible opportunity to show ourselves and our community how powerful our God is by helping us accomplish what we can't accomplish without Him.
Proverbs 16:3 "Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and He will establish your plans."

God has given me the ability to design and build. I would like to use these abilities to help Our Savior build God’s House to continue and expand the ministries of the Church. Our society needs to live by the Word of God. I truly believe that with larger and nicer facilities our Church can reach out to the community, to fill the hearts and minds of the many with God’s teachings to better society. It is my hope to leave a legacy that our children can use for years to come.

I am so excited and grateful to have been asked to be a part of such an exciting time in the church. Watching an idea turn into a reality for so many and to see all the different purposes it serves to our community. I am eager to get the children involved and just as excited as the adults are for this great plan.

As we proceed with the Capital Campaign, it is my hope and prayer that we remain strong as a congregation and prayerfully work together for what is best for our church now and in the future.
