Enjoy an evening of board games and card games. All ages welcome. Ice cream Sundaes will be served. Please sign up on the bulletin board in the fellowship hall or let the church office know that you will be participating.
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.
Serve Pancakes at Grace- May 19
OSLC regularly helps to prepare and serve a pancake breakfast at Grace Lutheran in downtown Phoenix, one of our sister congregations. If you would like to help, please sign up with the church office then be at Grace at 6:30 am to begin cooking.
Grace is now officially certified by Maricopa County to serve food to the public! This means they are wanting as many helpers as possible to get a Food Employee Certificate (formerly a Food Handlers Card).The card can be obtained for only $8.00 and it is good for 3 years (for an extra $2.00 you can choose an option to be able to print out your card anytime during the 3 year period.) To take a simple test and receive your Food Employee Certificate go to http://www.azfoodhandlers.com/Register3.aspx.
