Our Savior's Lutheran Church


Welcome to the East Valley! As the Phoenix Metro Area has sprawled, Our Savior's has sought to meet the needs of our community and provide a place where people can worship as well as receive spiritual care and enjoy Christian fellowship. With that mindset we have adopted the verse from Proverbs 29:18 which says, "Where there is no vision, the people perish." Over the history of this church it has become our mission to not only serve the community of East Mesa, but also Apache Junction and Gold Canyon. For more information on the history of our church, click here.

With two campuses and eight weekly worship services during the Winter season, and with the influx of winter visitors, there is a lot going on. We offer a blended style of worship at the Gold Canyon campus on Saturdays at 4:00 PM (November - April), which is a combination of a traditional service and a contemporary service.  All of the other worship services  are Traditional using the new ELW (Evangelical Lutheran Worship).

During our Summer months, we drop down to 4 worship services among our two Campuses. Our East Mesa Campus continues with the Saturday 4 pm service, and only two services on Sunday, May through October, at 7:30 &10 am.  In November we pick up extra services at both the East Mesa & Gold Canyon Campuses when Sunday school starts. Our pastoral staff rotates throughout our two campuses, giving you a variety of preaching styles each week. We encourage you to take a look around our website to get a feel for our different areas and ministries.

Our Pastoral staff and lay leaders have made a commitment of meeting the spiritual needs of not only our congregation, but also the community surrounding our Campuses. We regularly make visits to area hospitals, nursing homes, rehab centers, hospice centers, and the homebound to offer prayer, communion, and support. If you know of someone in need of a visit, please contact our East Mesa office at 480-984-5555.
