Welcome to the Lutheran Church of Our Saviour / Nuestro Salvador.

Join us for worship on Sundays at 10 am!

We want all of our visitors to see this “church on the hill” as a welcoming place where the Word of God is proclaimed and his invitation to be a part of his church may become a reality for you.
 
“We are God’s people, his Church. God has revealed his love for us through his Son, Jesus Christ our Saviour. In response to God’s love and obedience to his command, we are commissioned to extend his kingdom to all people.”

Our faith

We Believe

We believe in The Holy Trinity; God is Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.  

Three-in-One, One-in-Three

"We preach Christ crucified ... the power of God, and the wisdom of God."
"Christ came, who is over all, God blessed forever."

Jesus Christ, because he was God and man, lived a holy and perfect life on earth and died on the cross for our sins in our place. We who believe in Jesus Christ our Saviour, know our sins are forgiven, and live confidently in his name.
1 Corinthians
1:23-24
We believe that Jesus Christ was born of a virgin by the miraculous power of God. We believe that, three days after his crucifixion and death, the Savior was resurrected. We believe he will come again at the end of time to be the righteous judge of the world. We worship Christ as God and King of all creation.
Romans
9:5

Pastors

Pastor Don, Pastor Beth & Jason

The Reverends Beth and Donald Costlow met when they were students at the Lutheran Theological Seminary at Gettysburg (LTSG).  It was Pastor Don’s senior year, and Pastor Beth’s first year.  Nine months after their first date, on September 2, 2000, they were married.

Pastor Don was born in western Pennsylvania, in a rural community between Johnstown and Altoona.  His father was a coal miner; his mother was home with their children for many years before going to work as a cook in a school cafeteria.  Pastor Don has a twin brother, Ron; the two boys are the youngest of ten children.

Pastor Beth was born in upstate New York, and moved to central Florida when she was young.  Her parents were divorced and both remarried a few years later, so she grew up with parents and step-parents.  Her father was a computer programmer for the State of New York until his death.  Her mother was a retired bookkeeper for the school district where she lived in Florida.  Pastor Beth is the middle of three children born to her parents; she also has a half-sister, and six step-siblings.   

Pastor Beth attended high school and college in Florida.  She holds a Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in Elementary Education, and taught for several years before beginning seminary.  Also a second-career pastor, Pastor Don worked for several years as a school custodian before completing an Associates’ degree in Electronics and, eventually, a Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in Fine Arts. 

Both pastors hold Master of Divinity degrees from LTSG.

Together, Pastors Beth and Don have one child, Jason.  Jason is a teenager who, like most of today’s teens, enjoys video games and watching YouTube videos.  He is also active in Scouts-BSA, having achieved Life Scout rank just a few months ago.  He looks forward to becoming an Eagle Scout.  In addition to scouting, Jason enjoys playing trombone in the school band and participating in church youth activities. 

In his spare time, Pastor Don enjoys music.  He can often be found with his guitar in his arms, a song book in front of him, and his voice ringing out for all to hear and appreciate.  Pastor Beth likes to knit, cook, and read.  They share enthusiasm for travel, especially if they can board a cruise ship. 

They have been privileged to serve God in separate parishes for more than sixteen years, and are excited by the prospect of serving as co-pastors.
