Former members of Christ, Grace, and Mount Olive Lutheran Churches of Norfolk, Nebraska first gathered to worship as Our Savior Lutheran Church on July 30, 1961 in Howser Mortuary.
One hundred fifty-two charter members help found this new mission congregation, which formally organized on January 7, 1962. The average weekly worship attendance that inaugural year was 105.
The congregation soon outgrew the mortuary, and worship services were moved to Norfolk Jr. College in 1963. The congregation continued to worship there until February 23, 1964 when the original building was dedicated on the present site.
Two additions to the facilities were completed in 1976 and 1998.
God continues to bless His ministry at Our Savior Lutheran Church.
