Toddlers Welcome in Worship
What a wonderful thing that we have toddlers in worship each week. In order to help our littlest guests feel welcome, there are some baskets of age appropriate toys in the back row of the sanctuary. Parents and grandparents, please let your toddler use them, they are active, growing children of God! Anti-Bacterial wipes are provided for a quick clean up after use.
The rest of us, please keep an eye out for the children and their toys. If their busyness is distracting for you, you are encouraged to move towards the front and center of the worship space.
CROP Hunger Walk 2019
Sunday, November 10
Hunger is one of the greatest injustices facing our world, but it doesn’t have to be this way. Ending hunger is possible, and it is possible in our lifetime. You can help make it happen.
For nearly half a century, CROP Hunger Walks have ensured that more people worldwide have access to nutritious, sustainable food sources. From combating droughts in Nicaragua to providing agricultural training in Indonesia to stocking shelves in hundreds of food pantries across the United States, CROP Hunger Walks help end hunger by raising funds to support local food programs and the international anti-hunger work of Church World Service.
Stand with neighbors in your community who rely on food assistance programs. Partner with parents worldwide as they ensure a bright future for their children. Support those struggling in the face of grinding poverty and open up new doors of opportunity for them.
Tens of thousands of CROP Hunger Walkers are committed to building a hunger-free world. Stay tuned for more about how you can join the movement with the OSLC team of walkers.
