Our Savior Lutheran Church
Our Savior Lutheran Church, a new NALC mission congregation and the first mission plant in New England, emphasizes the NALC’s four core values of “Christ Centered, Mission Driven, Traditionally Grounded, and Congregationally Focused.” Having identified a geographical area of growth, the congregation seeks to work in North Central Rhode Island, an area traditionally of large Roman Catholic populations. The pastor, Larry Nichols, currently completing a PhD in the theology of Martin Luther at the University of St. Andrews, Scotland, is a former mission builder in the Lutheran Church–Missouri Synod. He began a house church of 12 and over his years of ministry there saw it develop into a congregation of more than 500 members. This mission congregation has received an NALC grant for 2014 and seeks $40,000 to support their new worship location and pay the pastor a nominal salary.
