Church of Our Saviour (COS) is a welcoming and inclusive Christian commuity, convinced that God enriches our lives by our particiaption in worship and service. We want to enjoy God through our worshp life, and seek to express an attitude of spiritual generosity as we welcome others. The people of COS prayerfully receive the Holy Eucharist every Sunday, as a means of empowering us to serve God and neighbor.
We value a rich worship life of Word and Sacrament.
We seek to be in continuity with our Christian past while being open to the new ways God is calling us to be Church in the world.
We seek to live the radical hospitality of Christ. All are welcome at the Eucharistic table.
Care for the Human Spirit:
connects you intimately with the rhythm of the universe.
May you have respect for your own individuality and difference.
May you realize that the shape of your soul is unique,
that you have a special destiny here,
That behind the facade of your life
there is something beautiful, good, and eternal happening.
May you learn to see yourself with the same delight, pride,
and expectation with which God sees you in every moment.
The Best of Both Worlds
Young & Old
Our Saviour is an old church, one of the two oldest in Elmhurst, and some of us have been coming here 50 years or more. We’re also a young church, with a wonderful group of young children and families.
The Anglican / Episcopal Ethos
The Episcopal Church belongs to the world wide Anglican Communion. Anglicanism has a culture, an ethos. In The Anglican Way, James Fenhagen emphasized three elements: comprehensiveness, personal holiness, and holy worldliness.
