Christ Our Savior Lutheran Church is located close to the center of historic old St. Augustine, Florida, the oldest continually occupied city in the United States (1565). The town was founded 48 years after the Reformation (1517). The congregation is a member of the Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod. www.lcms.org
Our congregation began as a spiritual outreach to the students of the Florida School for the Deaf and Blind, 31 December 1994. The congregation has since become a spiritual center for the local community while maintaining an outreach to the deaf community.
