Welcome!
We invite you to explore this Website and learn about our unique community of faith. Each week, Christians from over thirty-five (35) nations gather to pray, sing, hear and engage Scripture, and build relationships with one another. At present, some 400 households call Our Saviour home.

In fact, our vision is “to be a home for all of God's people” and we hope that your searching may lead you to worship with us. Our clergy and lay staff are eager to answer any question you might have about our common life. Do not hesitate to call or send an email.

Again, welcome!



Gospel Lesson
for July 27, 2014

Matthew 13:31-33, 44-52

Jesus put before the crowds another parable: "The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed that someone took and sowed in his field; it is the smallest of all the seeds, but when it has grown it is the greatest of shrubs and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and make nests in its branches."

He told them another parable: "The kingdom of heaven is like yeast that a woman took and mixed in with three measures of flour until all of it was leavened."

"The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which someone found and hid; then in his joy he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field.

"Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant in search of fine pearls; on finding one pearl of great value, he went and sold all that he had and bought it.

"Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a net that was thrown into the sea and caught fish of every kind; when it was full, they drew it ashore, sat down, and put the good into baskets but threw out the bad. So it will be at the end of the age. The angels will come out and separate the evil from the righteous and throw them into the furnace of fire, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

"Have you understood all this?" They answered, "Yes." And he said to them, "Therefore every scribe who has been trained for the kingdom of heaven is like the master of a household who brings out of his treasure what is new and what is old."

El Evangelio de 27 de Julio, 2014

San Mateo 13:31-33, 44-52

Jesús también les contó esta parábola: «El reino de los cielos es como una semilla de mostaza que un hombre siembra en su campo. Es, por cierto, la más pequeña de todas las semillas; pero cuando crece, se hace más grande que las otras plantas del huerto, y llega a ser como un árbol, tan grande que las aves van y se posan en sus ramas.»

También les contó esta parábola: «El reino de los cielos es como la levadura que una mujer mezcla con tres medidas de harina para hacer fermentar toda la masa.» […]

»El reino de los cielos es como un tesoro escondido en un terreno. Un hombre encuentra el tesoro, y lo vuelve a esconder allí mismo; lleno de alegría, va y vende todo lo que tiene, y compra ese terreno.

»Sucede también con el reino de los cielos como con un comerciante que andaba buscando perlas finas; cuando encontró una de mucho valor, fue y vendió todo lo que tenía, y compró esa perla.

»Sucede también con el reino de los cielos como con la red que se echa al mar y recoge toda clase de pescado. Cuando la red se llena, los pescadores la sacan a la playa, donde se sientan a escoger el pescado; guardan el bueno en canastas y tiran el malo. Así también sucederá al fin del mundo: saldrán los ángeles para separar a los malos de los buenos, y echarán a los malos en el horno de fuego. Entonces vendrán el llanto y la desesperación.»

Jesús preguntó: —¿Entienden ustedes todo esto?

—Sí —contestaron ellos.

Entonces Jesús les dijo: —Cuando un maestro de la ley se instruye acerca del reino de los cielos, se parece al dueño de una casa, que de lo que tiene guardado sabe sacar cosas nuevas y cosas viejas.
