Youth Bells  
Calling all youth from grades 5 and up! Youth Bells is starting up again this fall! We practice every Sunday from 1-2 pm, starting Sept. 16. We play once a month during all worship Sunday. Come try it out!

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! 
Book of the Month Club    
The Book of the Month Club will meet on Monday, September 24th at
1:00 p.m. to discuss "Being Mortal" by Gawande. Hope to see you there.
Supper 7   
Supper 7 is a casual supper with 5-7 friends that get together for 3 or 4 meals throughout the year. It is a way to meet new friends from our congregation over a meal and conversation. It is open to singles and couples. If your group would rather meet in a restaurant with each participant paying for their own meal, that works too. Interested? Sign-up at the Welcome Desk. Questions? Contact Sandy Fabio or 651-439-9773.  Sign up will close Sept 30.
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

Giving Opportunities

Simply Giving

A more convenient way to give! In a few short minutes, you can make a one-time gift or set up a donation that will process automatically on a recurring basis. Recurring donations are convenient and provide our church with much needed consistent support throughout the year. To give online, visit our church's website and get set up! 
Stewardship is about love:
serving others through our time, talent, and treasure.
