Second Sunday of Easter

Second Sunday of Easter

Doubting Thomas by Giovanni Serodine

Worship Together Saturdays Online or Sundays In-person (or online)!

Hepi Ista!
Worship for Eve of Second Sunday of Easter
5:30 pm Saturday, April 10
Facebook Premiere – ONLINE ONLY

Our Saviour is excited to join the Virginia Synod as we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus as a synod (and save Pastor Michael a week of editing the Saturday service!).

What we are most excited about is the chance to highlight and celebrate our companion relationship with the New Guinea Islands District of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Papua New Guinea. Pastor Kelly Bayer Derrick will preach, and you’ll see Pastor Michael in the video as well.

You may have noticed in our weekly prayers that we have a partner congregation in Papua New Guinea: Good Shepherd Lutheran Church in the town of Bialla. We regularly support this congregation and their Synod, and Pastor Michael visited in 2019. We’re looking forward to sharing this worship together with others across Virginia and the globe.

To experience this service, either go to the Facebook Premiere or the YouTube Premiere on Saturday, April 10 at 5:30 pm.  

For traditional worship, Our Saviour is delighted to have you join us on Sunday, April 11 at 10:00 am for worship back inside the Sanctuary, which will also be online via Facebook Livestream!  

Join your prayers with the community! During the live stream of the service, you are invited to type into the Facebook chat any prayer requests for those you want included in the prayers of intercession. (As always, you may also send your prayer requests by Wednesday the week ahead to Please do this at the beginning of the service so that we can write them up and hand them to the pastors before the prayers start.
