History: Our Savior Lutheran Church in Quincy, CA began as a preaching station of the Missouri Synod Lutheran Church in 1937 and was chartered as a congregation in 1955. The current building (formerly a house) was purchased in 1956 and the new chancel was added in 1988.
The church has been served by many pastors over the years, usually in combination with Lutheran churches in neighboring towns. For about three decades, the pastor has been a worker-priest (part-time). Currently, the pastor’s position is three quarter time.
In 1981, Our Savior became part of the Association of Evangelical Lutheran Churches (AELC). In 1988, the congregation became part of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA). Our Savior Lutheran is a part of the Sierra Pacific Synod (covering northern California and northern Nevada) within the ELCA.
A major addition to the church building was completed in 2005. New facilities include a fellowship hall, kitchen and office. The church is now accessible for people with physical disabilities from the back door entrance.
