The Foundations of Osoyoos Lutheran Church
Grace Lutheran Church in Osoyoos BC, a congregation of Lutheran Church-Canada, exists primarily to give glory to God, and to serve its members and the community as it holds forth the Word of Life, concerning the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. We celebrate and remember Jesus' life, death, and resurrection, as we await His Second Coming at the end of time, and the resurrection of the dead.
To that end we emphasize Christian Education of both youth and adults. Our mission includes running Good Shepherd Christian School for children from K-7.
We further emphasize children's ministry through Sunday School, summer Vacation Bible School, and Confirmation instruction based on Luther's Small Catechism.
Adult learning takes place through midweek Bible Studies at the church, and an evening Bible Study held in members' homes.
We also have a Lutheran Women's Missionary League, working to promote missions both locally and internationally.
There is an active choir and of course they're always looking for new members. They generally practice on Monday nights, sing on various Sundays during service and on special occasions.
Presently, we are enjoying a relationship with a parish near Henty, New South Wales, in Australia, and Pastor Adam Eime.
The congregation supports Canadian Lutheran World Relief and the development work it does, along with local endeavors.
