General note

In the spring of 1940, Mrs. Wilma Glover hosted a group of ladies who were interested in starting a local Lutheran congregation. This group of ladies contacted Dr. H. L. Foss with a request that a mission be started. On September 15, 1930, Rev. Morris Thompson, who was full-time pastor in nearby Bend, Oregon, was installed to hold services in the Odd Fellows Hall. The congregation was officially organized on December 1, 1945 and adopted the name of Our Savior’s. The Rev. Burnis Rogness, an ex-Army Chaplain, came in 1946 and was the first full-time pastor. Later that year the congregation borrowed $15,000 and the Mission Board purchased an Army chapel at Camp Abbott, Oregon.
