Adult Education Topics
 
September 15: Seven Covenants.  Dave Shaw will share the Biblical Covenants (agreements/promises/contracts) which are important features of the Bible's teaching. Seven specific covenants made between God and humankind (all in the Old Testament), are revealed in Scripture. Some are meant for all people, some specific to Israel...and all are based on who God is and His plans for the world. Come and see.
 
September 22:  Ana Becerra, the mission developer of Cristo Rey, a developing church out of Christ the King Lutheran Church in New Brighton, will be with us to share her experience of sharing the good news with the growing Latino population in the metro area.

Valley Outreach Undies Campaign
 
Every fall, Valley Outreach appeals to faith communities in the Stillwater area to help individuals in need by contributing to the "Undie Sunday" campaign by donating new socks or packages of underwear. OSLC members have generously contributed to this campaign in past years, even winning the traveling trophy. We will be asking OSLC members to participate again this year.  So watch for additional information coming soon.
