  • Lutherans are Christians who accept the teachings of Martin Luther (1483 – 1546). Luther was a German theologian who realized that there were significant differences between what he read in the Bible and the practices of the Roman Catholic church at that time. On October 31, 1517, he posted a challenge on the door of Wittenberg University, titled “95 Theses” (to debate 95 theological issues). His hope was that the church would reform its practice and preaching to be more consistent with the Word of God as contained in the Bible.

    What started as an academic debate escalated into a distinct separation between the Roman Catholic church of the time and those who accepted Luther’s suggested reforms. "Lutheran" became the name of the group that agreed with Luther’s convictions.

    Today, nearly five centuries later, Lutherans still celebrate the Reformation on October 31 and still hold to the basic principles of Luther’s theological teachings, such as Grace alone, faith alone, Scripture alone. These comprise the very essence of Lutheranism:

      We are saved by the 

    grace of God alone

    What we believe

  • Pastor Dennis W. Olson


    Pastor Olson came to Our Savior’s in January of 2005 as a Supply Pastor after the former pastor resigned. Later that year the call committee and the congregation called him to be the one pastor.

    Pastor Olson has over 35 years of experience in ordained ministry. He has served as a clinical chaplain for 14 years; four years at a county health care center and 10 years at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Marshfield. He served parishes in Strumm and Eleva, Wisconsin for 11 years. Before coming to Our Savior’s he served as an Interim Pastor in several parishes in Wisconsin.

    Pastor Olson is married to Mary Reinke-Olson. He has 3 grown sons and he and Mary have 2 sons, Tom-13 and Ben-11. He enjoys all sports, particularly basketball, and loves music. He likes doing yard work and working in the woods.

  • Our Faith In Action

    Every day, in a million ways, members of the ELCA are making the world a better place. In far reaches of the globe, and right here in our neighborhood, you’ll see that Lutherans aren’t folks who simply talk about their beliefs. We put them into action.
    So make a meal to share. Have your opinion on government policy heard. Help a friend through their time of need. Here you’ll find stories that inspire and opportunities to get involved. Find out just how rewarding God’s work can be.
