From Pastor Bartle


Welcome! I have been pastor at Our Savior Lutheran since 2007 and in the Silver Valley since 1995.


I love serving this church community as their pastor. People here are loving and warm, full of diverse ideas, ready to grapple with their own questions about God and Spirit, about Jesus in history and Jesus in the Christian tradition. People here want to explore how to live an authentic life of love and care, not just for their own, but for the city, the creation, for our whole world.


That means that people at Our Savior have lots of love and lots of passions and concerns.


I think this is what a church is meant to be; a place of caring, of welcome, of hope and encouragement to keep on making a difference for good in the world. And it is just too much to try to do this alone, so we are a community. And we are encouraged and renewed by one another, and through the power that is greater than we, the power of God.


Welcome to Our Savior Lutheran Church. Our worship life is rooted in the Lutheran heritage and revolves around Word and Sacrament. Through the course of the year we draw from the wellspring of worship services, celebrating each season.

We welcome you to join us as we worship God and seek to reflect God’s grace in our lives.
