Custodian & Environmental Services

Steve Gagnon is quite over-experienced in this field but loves his church and joyously brings us a clean and neat looking environment. We are blessed and thankful he is retired and choses to assist us at OSLC. He is here a few times a week and if you have any questions for him, give us a call in the office at 218-741-6207.

Musicians at Our Savior’s Lutheran

We have a strong history at OSLC of providing skilled, professional and quality music. Our worship services include traditional liturgical music and hymns played on our beautiful Jaeckel Pipe Organ. Dan Jaeckel, of Duluth Minnesota, is renown as one of the most respected organ builders in the world. This fall we had a Zimbelstern installed with the organ, a memorial gift from the Moberg family, that plays chimes in accompaniment with the music. Our organists are Kristen Weikum, Ginny Ahrlin, and Mark Ongalo, all professional musicians who continue to broaden their skills and knowledge in classical music to assist us in our worship at Our Savior’s. It is quite rare for a church to be blessed with 3 accomplished organists, and even more rare to have a Jaeckel Pipe Organ with a Zimbelstern – the only one north of Duluth, Minnesota.
