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 the sixth Sunday after Pentecost, July 5, 2015

Mark 6:1-13

Jesus left that place and came to his hometown, and his disciples followed him. On the sabbath he began to teach in the synagogue, and many who heard him were astounded. They said, "Where did this man get all this? What is this wisdom that has been given to him? What deeds of power are being done by his hands! Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary and brother of James and Joses and Judas and Simon, and are not his sisters here with us?" And they took offense at him. Then Jesus said to them, "Prophets are not without honor, except in their hometown, and among their own kin, and in their own house." And he could do no deed of power there, except that he laid his hands on a few sick people and cured them. And he was amazed at their unbelief. Then he went about among the villages teaching. He called the twelve and began to send them out two by two, and gave them authority over the unclean spirits. He ordered them to take nothing for their journey except a staff; no bread, no bag, no money in their belts; but to wear sandals and not to put on two tunics. He said to them, "Wherever you enter a house, stay there until you leave the place. If any place will not welcome you and they refuse to hear you, as you leave, shake off the dust that is on your feet as a testimony against them." So they went out and proclaimed that all should repent. They cast out many demons, and anointed with oil many who were sick and cured them.

El Evangelio por el dia sexto domingo despues Pentecostes, 5 de julio, 2015

San Marco 6:1-13

Jesús se fue de allí a su propia tierra, y sus discípulos fueron con él. Cuando llegó el sábado, comenzó a enseñar en la sinagoga. Y muchos oyeron a Jesús, y se preguntaron admirados: —¿Dónde aprendió éste tantas cosas? ¿De dónde ha sacado esa sabiduría y los milagros que hace? ¿No es éste el carpintero, el hijo de María y hermano de Santiago, José, Judas y Simón? ¿Y no viven sus hermanas también aquí, entre nosotros? Y no tenían fe en él. Pero Jesús les dijo: —En todas partes se honra a un profeta, menos en su propia tierra, entre sus parientes y en su propia casa. No pudo hacer allí ningún milagro, aparte de poner las manos sobre unos pocos enfermos y sanarlos. Y estaba asombrado porque aquella gente no creía en él. Jesús recorría las aldeas cercanas, enseñando. Llamó a los doce discípulos, y comenzó a enviarlos de dos en dos, dándoles autoridad sobre los espíritus impuros. Les ordenó que no llevaran nada para el camino, sino solamente un bastón. No debían llevar pan ni provisiones ni dinero. Podían ponerse sandalias, pero no llevar ropa de repuesto. Les dijo: —Cuando entren ustedes en una casa, quédense allí hasta que se vayan del lugar. Y si en algún lugar no los reciben ni los quieren oír, salgan de allí y sacúdanse el polvo de los pies, para que les sirva a ellos de advertencia. Entonces salieron los discípulos a decirle a la gente que se volviera a Dios. También expulsaron muchos demonios, y curaron a muchos enfermos ungiéndolos con aceite.
