WHAT'S GOING ON AT OUMC?


Life Group for Newcomers 
and Anyone else without a Life Group will begin meeting Sunday, January 20th after Worship and continue meeting through February 24th.  Please come to the side room of the Fellowship Hall after worship.

Are you looking for ways you  can help our Church during Sunday Worship?

We have several ways you can do just that!


Ushers and Greeters:
 You can do one or both.  Both Ushers and   Greeters have a Quarterly schedule.

Video Tech:
 We are looking for people willing to turn 
 on and off a video camera for our Sunday   worship so that we can start sharing   Sunday's Sermon on Facebook and 
our website for those who can not 
be there in   person.  

There will be a short training 
class in January 23rd at 6:30 pm in the Sanctuary.  

 Please let Sherry know if you are 
interested   in helping with any of these.  Click Here  

 Together we can make a difference!
The dates for OUMC to fully staff WHO will be Jan 27-Jan 30th, Mark your calendars now.  
Talk to Deb Burlingame if you want more info.

WHAT'S GOING ON IN 
OUR COMMUNITY ?


Faith Action Network Advocacy Day AND Housing and Homelessness Advocacy Day

This year I am encouraging people to advocate as much as possible. I can't possibly advise people of every event, but here are two opportunities in areas our congregation is already involved with.

The Washington Low Income Housing Alliance has invited Faith Partners for Affordable Housing to join them for the Housing and Homelessness Advocacy day, Thursday, February 28th 
8:00 am to 4:00 pm
 You can register at http://bit.ly/hhad2019

Last year I think they took a bus, so if you need transportation, for more information on transportation, 
you can contact Denny Scott at rdennyscott@aol.com

The Interfaith Advocacy Day is February 14th. Here is the link to the flier.

Thank you for all you do.
