Thank you OSLC!
 
Sending an enthusiastic "Thank You" to the Our Savior's congregation for your contributions to the Lumberjack Days Parade float. We are grateful for the candy, water, and freeze pops you provided, the time you volunteered to help build a wonderful looking float, and for participating during the parade. We certainly demonstrated "God at Work" within our community.  Because of you we may have reached someone looking for Christ's love so be on the lookout for visitors coming to our services. Blessings from Your Evangelism "Come & See" Committee.
