OUR MINISTRIES

Our Saviour's is dedicated to serving the community through the love of Christ.

Sunday school

 

Sunday school is available for all ages starting at 10am. Children up to 6 years old can attend the church nursery. Children ages 7 and up can attend Sunday School. Children return to service during peace and join the congregation for Communion.

Faith in Community

 

As a founding congregation of Faith in Community, FIC, which is part of the PICO network, we organize around issues of injustice and violence in Fresno. For more information about FIC, click on the Faith in Community Link.

Friday Night Kid's Club

 

With 100% of our community below the poverty line, Friday Night Kid's Club provides a nutritional meal for children and their families, help with homework, games, crafts, and field trips. 

Music

 

Our Saviour's has a praise ensemble and choir. We also host a concert series featuring local musicians from October through May. We are currently working on a summer series and will post as soon as we have it in place. Part of the proceeds from these concerts go to providing gifted children with private music lessons which their families cannot afford.

Food and Clothing Pantry

 

Our Saviour's runs a Food and Clothing Pantry which is open to the community on the first Monday of each month. Our Pantry is an agency of the Fresno County Food Bank. Clothing, primarily for children, is available for families in need. We also have provided eye exams, eye glasses, and shoes for children in need. We are part of the Lutheran Hunger Network and host a Farmer's Market at least twice a year.  During the summer, we host the EOC Federal Lunch Program, ensuring that children up to and including 18 year olds have at least one good meal for the day. We take this program over from the schools when school is out.

Elders / Seniors

 

We have an active "Shut-In" ministry and hold Bible Study at Fair Winds which is a retirement home. Timely forums concerning issues effecting Seniors are usually held after church with lunch provided.

USDA Summer Lunch Program

 

The Fresno County EOC administers the USDA Lunch Program for children living in poverty in the Fresno Unified School District. When school is out for the summer, Our Saviour's takes the program over so that children, up to and including youth who are 18 years of age, will be guaranteed at least one healthy meal a day.
