Welcome to Beautiful Savior Lutheran Church!
Come, Worship with Us!
Please join us for worship every Sunday morning at 9:00 a.m. This service is traditional in style with a friendly atmosphere and excellent, straight-from-the-Bible preaching. Newcomers regularly comment on how clear and to-the-point Pastor Raabe's sermons are. Long-time members agree. Listen to a sermon, or, better yet, worship with us soon!
Worship with us every Wednesday through April 9. Choose either 4:30 or 6:30 p.m. for your convenience. Our popular family-style suppers continue at 5:30 p.m. in Fellowship Hall. You are invited, and please bring a friend. (Free-will offering each Wednesday.) If you've heard about the famous desserts our members bring, you've heard right!

Come for a family-style supper and take time for family board games 'til 9:00 p.m. Families will either leave at that time or stay for the overnight camp-in. Tents are welcome -- no stakes, please(!), as are cots, sleeping bags, etc. Activities, songs, roasting marshmallows, a movie and even an optional midnight candlelight devotion! Stay tuned! Children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. By all means, single adult campers are welcome, as well. The cost is simply to bring one non-perishable food pantry item per number of campers. Of course, cookie and snack donations are always welcome!
Breakfast is at 7:30 a.m. Saturday morning (Express: Continental) or at
8:30 a.m. for an Egg-cellent treat including a variety of quiche, bacon and sausage!
This new family event is open to members and Kops Park neighbors who pre-register. Co-sponsored by Kops Park Neighborhood Association and Beautiful Savior.
Yes, First Friday is Here for You
First Friday , our monthly kid-friendly event, is a huge hit for BSLC and Kops neighborhood families. For just $2 per child (out of diapers), parents are given a night off from 5:00-9:00 p.m., knowing that your little ones will start off with a simple supper and an evening of just plain kid fun. In recent First Friday events, church and neighborhood kids enjoyed the chance to play with friends in a safe, relaxed environment. Activities include (but are not limited to) a game night, ping pong, foosball, junior basketball buckets, air hockey, crafts or even a scavenger hunt or movie. Why, a few months back, the kids and volunteers were blessed to see a double rainbow (a gift from God) while outside on the church lawns!
Since First Friday is gaining in popularity (we average 20-something happy kids), we've split the kids into smaller age and activity groups. The kids love hanging out with their friends and neighbors. There’s even a quiet spot for readers who want to curl up with a good book, and we have some on hand for all ages. Take a moment to check out our photos in the photo tour -- updated monthly -- to measure our feedback in satisfied kid smiles. We sincerely enjoy bringing our community families together. That's why we're here for you every month of the year!
The next First Friday parents’ night off at Beautiful Savior is Friday, December 6, 2013 from 5:00 to 9:00 p.m. sharp. Pre-registration is strongly recommended so we can plan for meals! To register, use our online form or call (414) 871-6744 to register by phone.
