Announcements
 
Solar Array at OSLC 
 
Interested in hearing more? Attend Adult Forum on September 9 at
9:15 am.
For several months, OSLC, in the spirit of caring for God's creation and saving cost on our utility bills, has explored the possibility of installing a rooftop solar array on our facility. Don Schuld has been actively involved in this project and will share what is being considered, the processes involved and the potential impact for OSLC. This will be an opportunity to hear about the project and to ask any questions you have. The Board will likely take action on this project later this month.

Not able to attend a Listening Session? Take this Survey!
 
For the past few weeks the Transition Team has been conducting listening sessions at various people's homes to get a sense of the congregation's feelings. While many people have been able to participate, even more have not. If you are one of those in that second category, would you please take 5 minutes to respond to the Transition Team's questions?
