our story

How it all started...

Beautiful Savior Lutheran Church North Platte, Nebraska was established in 1980 and is the sister congregation to Our Redeemer Lutheran Church which is also located in North Platte, on the opposite side of town.  The first worship service was held at 9:15 a.m. on March 15, 1981, in the Eisenhower School gym.  Sunday school followed the service.  They continued to hold services there until the current church was completed in 1982.  

The congregation was officially accepted into the membership with the Nebraska District of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod on January 29, 1981.  The first Pastor was Rev. Carl Wolf, he was their Interm Pastor.  On February 26, 1982 Pastor Timm Griffen accepted the call and was installed on March 28, 1982 during the first anniversary of the Church.  

January 9, 1983, a Ground Breaking Ceremony was held at Baytree between C and E streets, where the current church is located.  The building was dedicated November 13, 1983.  

In 1984 Beautiful Savior Lutheran Preschool opened, and is still going strong, educating 3-year olds and 4-year olds.

In 1998 an addition was added to the original building that included the current offices and classrooms.

A Place for Individuals and Families to Grow

  • in the Word of God
  • in Jesus' teachings
  • in Christian relationships

We do that through Sunday worship, Sunday School for children, youth, and adults; in Christian fellowship, in family activities, as well as opportunities for serving, working, and playing together.    

We want to reach into the community of non-churched to proclaim the Good News of salvation by faith in Jesus Christ, and share the love and grace of God with all people!
