Giving in Honor or Memory

Our Saviour’s invites you to honor or remember someone special by making a donation to provide tangible witness to the mission of Christ.


Contributions made in honor of someone (e.g., celebrate a birth, a life, birthday, anniversary, special occasion or to give thanks), you may select the specific project or ministry to receive the support for the options below. Donations made in memory will support the specific project or ministry that the family has designated. Gifts received without a specific designation will go to Our Saviour’s Plan for Ministry (i.e., General Operating Budget) in support of all of Our Saviour’s ministries.

Click on the links to get more information about our Memorial Fund Policy, or for recommended ideas, approved by the Church Council, Gift or Memorial Suggestions.


A note will be sent to the person you have honored or to the family of the deceased notifying them of the gift. The note will not give the amount of the gift, but will let them know a gift has been made in their honor or memory. In addition, gifts from church members will be listed in the Sunday worship folder, the newsletter, and on OSLC’s webpage. Please note: due to a number of production factors, the acknowledgement may not appear immediately.
