Our Saviour Lutheran Church
300 West Fowler Ave.
West Lafayette, IN 47906
Our Saviour Lutheran Church (OSLC) is a member of the Indiana-Kentucky Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA). We are located on the corner of Vine and Fowler in West Lafayette, Indiana, near the campus of Purdue University.
Our worship is deeply rooted in the ways God's grace comes to us, namely in Word and Sacrament. Our worship is liturgical, evangelical, and catholic. Within this broad tradition of Christian worship, we practice different styles appropriate to the seasons of the Church Year. Holy Communion is celebrated every Sunday.
The movement of the liturgy connects us, our lives, and God's reign. Our identity as God's people and bearers of God's redeeming and saving love is formed. Then we are sent out into the world to serve.

At Our Saviour Lutheran Church, we anticipate with pleasure the time when visitors, whether new or long-time members of our community, visit our household of faith to worship with us and to revitalize our community with offerings of fresh energy, new perspectives and talented leadership. Your innumerable and diverse gifts are a blessing to us all year long!
Our parishioners come from varied walks of life in the Greater Lafayette/ West Lafayette area. While a significant number of our members are associated with the university, we also have a growing number of members who are in no way engaged with the campus. This combination of "town and gown" creates a household of faith that is a delightful blend of permanent and transitory residents that seeks to faithfully and creatively bear witness to the Gospel.
Our Saviour serves not only as a community worship center, but also as the worship center for Purdue Lutheran Ministry, located at 330 West Fowler Ave. on the campus of Purdue University. Together, these sister ministries serve the community which includes and surrounds Purdue University.
We welcome you to join with us as you are able! Receive this as an invitation to participate with us in these ministries. May you be nourished by God's promises as they are made known to you in worship, by your service to God as you prepare to live out your calling in your vocation, and by our mutual commitment to the care and nurture of one another in this household of faith.
