The original website of Our Saviour Lutheran Church was constructed in March, 2000 by Hudson Boy Scout Troop 650 as part of an Eagle Scout Project of David L. Clark to help the Church celebrate its 50th Anniversary by giving it a place on the worldwide web.

David Clark

David first obtained a computer and modem for the church, researched and found a suitable website name (and web host), obtained funding for the purchase of the "oslhudson.org" domain name (and 16 months' fully funded web hosting!).

David and his mother, JoAnn Clark, work on the layouts during a “website work bee” (and pizza party!) at the Hudson Post Gazette.

Under his leadership, the Boy Scouts constructed the pages of the website with input from members of Our Saviour Lutheran congregation.

Boy Scouts Jerek Gutierrez, David Clark, Dustin Ely and Scoutmaster Bill Housman work on webpage design at the work bee.

Pastor Todd Brunworth and members of the church council were then shown the planned website and asked to review and proofread each page. After obtaining permission to publish the website from the church's council, David supervised training of church leaders in website maintenance. The finished site was put online in June, 2000. David was stricken with leukemia in October, 2000 and was awarded the rank of Eagle Scout on May 8, 2001. David lost his battle with leukemia and died, the following day, May 9, 2001.
