Heritage and History

Our Savior's heritage is defined as a blend of four area churches. In 1967, two Albany churches, Ebenezer Evangelical and Christ Church, merged to create Our Savior's Lutheran Church. Following, many members from two churches that had closed, St. John's Lutheran of Krain Township and Trinity Lutheran of Holdingford, joined Our Savior's. In early 1987, the congregation voted to become a part of the newly-formed Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA).

In 1999, Our Savior’s Celebrated the dedication of a new sanctuary and narthex. The building program also included the remodeling of the former sanctuary into a large fellowship hall, new kitchen, and offices. The lower-level former kitchen and fellowship hall were converted into Sunday School classrooms.
