FAITH + TALK
We’ve had two wonderful weeks of in person, indoor worship! Being together to worship, give thanks, be fed at the table and sent into the world to be God’s love in the world is always a joy no matter if we are inside or out. What doesn’t change, what matters, is our gathering in the promises of God. As the old hymn goes “You can have all the rest, give me Jesus!” That’s all that we need and it’s what God gives us freely. I’m grateful that Jesus remains the same no matter where we are.

As part of our transitions, we are attempting a new Enews format. We heard from many of you it can be difficult and over whelming to scroll through so many items. To try and remedy that, each Wednesday, you will receive an email that will have general headings that are links to the information you may be searching for. Such as there will be a “Calendar” heading/link, and once you click on it, you will be directed to the calendar on our website. Hopefully, that will allow you to find what you are needing quickly and efficiently. Of course, you can go to our website anytime for information. We’ll be tweaking it as we go and so know that this isn’t the final format. It will continue to evolve. Thank you for your patience!

See you Sunday!

*NEW* OSLC Giving

OSLC is grateful for your partnership in the gospel throughout these months. Many of you have discovered the ease of electronic giving, and it is greatly appreciated!
One helpful tip for us and you, in order for the giving to be recorded on your statement, we have to know it is indeed from you.

If you are giving from a bank or brokerage account, you have to request that your name is somewhere on the check or the statement from them to us. We recently received a very generous gift, yet we don't know whom to thank. If you think this could be you, or would like more information on this, please check in with our financial secretary, Steve Johnson. Thank you again for your generosity and joy in Christ!

Blessings,

Pastor Brigette

Downtown SLC Ambassador Supply Drive

The Downtown SLC Ambassador program serves the downtown and North Temple homeless population. They distribute water, snacks and clothing, provide a variety of medical treatment from minor injuries to drug overdoses, and refer people to shelter and detox services. This work lessens the burden on local residents, merchants, and tourists while providing compassionate care to those on the margins of our society.
 
OSLC will be participating in a supply drive to help the SLC Ambassador program continue serving those in need. Please consider donating the following items:
 
•            Cases of bottled water
•            Non-perishable, ready-to-eat snack items
•            New socks and brief underwear
 
You can leave any donations by the west entrance of the OSLC building. Supplies will be picked up periodically during a two-week period for distribution across the valley. Please feel free to contact Sam Huntington at (385) 216-0524 or Jared Arvanitas at (801) 541-0434 with any questions or information requests.
