Third Grade FaithMarker      
Just a reminder that this Sunday, September 30, we will be having our 3rd Grade FaithMarker. Families with 3rd graders should meet in the Family Room at 9:15 am for the class. Your child can receive their FaithMarker blessing at either the 8:00 or 10:30 am service that Sunday.

All Worship Sunday & Potluck Brunch     
On Sunday, October 7, there will be only one worship service at 9:30 am followed by a potluck brunch hosted by our PEP Group. The transition team heard many comments about the feeling that there are three separate worship communities at OSLC. This is an opportunity to come together for worship and fellowship! Please sign-up at the Welcome Desk if you plan to attend.
Did You Notice?     
Did you notice... Who is welcoming you at the door? Who is handing you a bulletin? Who is reading you the lesson or serving you communion? Who is  welcoming visitors at the Welcome Desk? Who is making coffee and treats? Who is helping to serve Wednesday meals? There are many different roles at Sunday and Wednesday worship and ALL of us are needed to share in these roles. Our online sign up is available 24/7 via our website or the weekly eblast. You can also call the church office to sign up. Did you notice...that "Who" could be YOU! 
OSLC Celebration Sunday Dinner! Save the Date!    
Date: November 11, 2018                              Think Generously
Place: OSLC Community Life Center                Practice Generosity
Time: 5:30 pm                                             Live Courageously
Who: All members and friends of OSLC
What: Dinner, Entertainment, and Special Guest Speaker
Why: Because you belong to God, and we are grateful for you! Our role as God's stewards is one of many dimensions - grateful, responsible, self-sacrificing, willing, sharing, proportionate, committed, regular, genuine, and challenged. By generously giving of ourselves, we discover joy in Christ. 
Valley Outreach Undie Sunday     
The Valley Outreach Clothing Closet offers gently used clothing for children and adults, relying almost exclusively on donations from area residents. What is not gently used, however, are the socks and underwear distributed to those in need. 'Undie' donations received from the faith community allow individuals to receive 5 pairs of socks and 5 pairs of underwear twice a year.
A receptacle will be placed in the Gathering Area for OSLC members to
drop off their donations. Any new, in-the-package socks and underwear are needed. For adults, the emphasis is on larger sizes for both women and men. For men: boxers are preferred. Please help OSLC make a LARGE
contribution to this worthy cause. Final day to drop off items at OSLC will be October 14. Thank you!
Ministry Opportunities
