Personal Message from the Pastor:
“Welcome! We hope our website represents a bit of who we are as a welcoming, vibrant Christ-centered community of faith in South Regina. No matter who you are or where you come from, know that you matter to God, and you matter to us!
All are welcome here, and we would be happy to talk with you through email, over the phone, or meet you over a cup of coffee to chat about faith and life, or to try to answer any questions you might have about the ministry we share – in and outside of this place.
The Peace and Joy of Christ be with you!” --Pastor Amber
Pastor Diane Nokonechny (interim) began to serve Our Saviors in January 2023 while Pastor Amber was on sabbatical. In 2017, after a career as a Dental Hygienist for more than 20 years, she sensed an unexpected call to ministry. In 2018, she began full-time studies at Lutheran Theological Seminary in Saskatoon. She completed her internship at Luther College Highschool and Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church in Regina. Pastor Diane graduated with a Masters of Divinity in 2022 and was ordained in May 2022. She served as the interim pastor at Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church in Regina before coming to Our Saviors.
Pastor Diane is passionate about sharing the Good News of God’s love for all people to all people in real and tangible ways and empowering others to do the same. God desires for all of God’s creation to thrive in this life, and as we live out our lives of faith, God is at work through each of us to bring change, hope, love and healing into the world.
Pastor Amber Hoffman (sabbatical) has served Our Savior’s since being welcomed by the congregation in September 2014. She has been ordained in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada since 2005, having previously received her Bachelor of Arts at the University of Saskatchewan and her Masters of Divinity degree at our Lutheran Theological Seminary (U of S campus) in Saskatoon.
Our Savior’s Lutheran Church is a community of faith committed to making known the reality of Christ's presence in the world through the Word, worship, prayer, teaching and fellowship. We are an accessible church. We offer free taxi service should you need a ride getting to and from Sunday worship. We have an AED on site. We also offer pastoral care on request.
Our Parent Church: Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada (ELCIC) is the largest organized body of Canadian Lutherans with approximately 93,000 baptized members in 493 congregations. We trace our roots as a confessing movement to the reformation of the catholic church initiated by Dr. Martin Luther in Germany in the 1500’s. The ELCIC is in full communion with the Anglican Church of Canada. (www.elcic.ca)
