On Palm Sunday, 1953, the first worship service of Our Savior’s Lutheran Church was held not far from our present location at the Sterling Theater (now Cornerstone Church) in the Sterling Shopping Center. We read in founding Pastor Glennys Knutson’s book, The Cross and The Crown, that he was a bit nervous that day as there were only 12 people at the theater when he went back home to get his family for worship 15 minutes before the service was to begin. Imagine his surprise when he returned and nearly 400 people had shown up! Since those first days Our Savior’s has grown in many ways. The charter membership was 753 members; today our roll stands at over 2300 baptized. The initial worship space was what we call Knutson Hall today; now we have a beautiful sanctuary and many other wonderful ministry spaces. We are blessed to still have with us today 50 of the original members, including Pastor Knutson and his wife, Margaret. We are blessed in so many ways. We will celebrate our blessings on Anniversary Sunday, April 13th. Join us!
