  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? You can find the survey here.

Help us staff the Valley Outreach Foodshelf on Wednesday, Sept. 5 and Friday, Sept. 7. (We will not be assisting on Monday, Sept. 3, as the Foodshelf is closed for the Labor Day holiday.)

Worship Assistants Matter!
When we have volunteers serving in worship:
  • Incoming worshippers get warmly greeted at the door.
  • Visitors get "mugged" with an OSLC coffee mug and get their questions answered about Our Savior's.
  • Worshippers, especially those attending for the first time, experience a service that flows smoothly with the guidance of ushers handing out bulletins, passing out the offering plates/baskets, directing worshippers to communion stations.
  • The day's Lesson and Psalm is shared with us at the early service, with the Pastor sharing the Gospel at both services.
  • Worshippers share in the bread and wine that are efficiently distributed to us on Communion Sundays.
Worship Assistants matter! Sign up online or call the church office to volunteer today.
