Transition Team

Sign up for a Transition Listening Session to share your perspective! 
So far, about 50 members have completed or signed up for a Transition Listening Session...and we want to hear from you, too! Over the next several weeks, we'll  host a series of Transition Listening Sessions, which will be held at the church and in people's homes. The goal with the listening sessions is to hear perspectives from as many people as possible across the congregation. The Transition Team will consolidate responses and incorporate member perspectives into the work on OSLC mission, vision and values statements later this summer.
This is a great opportunity for you to shape the future of OSLC -- to help identify the direction of the church and expectations for our next pastor!  
You should expect to spend about 1 hour (depending on how many attend the same session) responding to questions that a member of the Transition Team will ask. You'll find information about the discussion questions and session schedule on the OSLC website. Click Here!
Sign up for the Listening Session date and time that works best for you. You'll find sign up sheets in the Gathering Area, or you can email the Transition Team and we will follow up with you to confirm.

Look for further updates in the weekly e-blast or during Sunday service announcements. If you have questions, send an email to the Transition Team
