We are honored to have you with us. Our Savior's is a welcoming community of believers who come together to worship God, learn from His word, and share in fellowship. Through Jesus Christ, we experience grace, love, and hope.


Please join us for worship in person, online or on Comcast Channel 18. Check out the Bible studies, Pub Church and many other groups for all ages.

It's my privilege to serve this faith community. I grew up on a dairy farm in Wisconsin and before Greeley, served congregations in Ault and Durango, CO. I’ve also been a volunteer firefighter/EMT for 24 years. My wife, Diane, works part-time as a Municipal Judge. All are welcome here and may God bless you on your journey of faith!

Our Story

Back in 1927 a pastor was called to this area to serve both a German Lutheran congregation and a small group of folks interested in having worship in English. The pastor was accused of spending too much time with the small group and was evicted from the church’s house. He and his family turned to full-time ministry with those who had the crazy idea to have Lutheran worship in the English language.

This group became Our Savior’s which grew from 14 members to where we are today.  We now have a beautiful worship area just two blocks south of NCMC hospital on 21st Avenue. Here is our Sunday schedule: 

  • Worship services are in person and livestreamed at 8:30 a.m. (informal) and 10:00 a.m. (traditional).

  • Outdoor courtyard services are offered at the early service June - August.

  • Sunday service is aired at 9:00 a.m. on local Comcast Channel 18. 

  • Coffee and Cookies are in the Fellowship Hall at 9:30 a.m. 

  • Various children and youth programs are offered.  

There are educational opportunities on Sundays and a children and youth program with a lite supper on Wednesday evenings. Many folks know us by our preschool which has over 70 children and has been voted the “Best of Greeley” for the past five years.

We come from all sorts of backgrounds and we all have a story. We’d love to hear yours and have you with us!

Have questions?  Contact us!  We'd love to hear from you!
