PHLY provides monthly opportunities for Lutheran High School youth from over a dozen different congregations to come together every second Saturday of the month from 4 PM - 8 PM.These monthly opportunities will consist of community building activities, service projects, faith formation, a yearly retreat and a mission trip. PHLY is being lead by Casey Goslin who has over 2 decades of experience in youth ministry retreats and events. Casey will be visiting congregations all year long to make a personal connection with not only the youth, but the families and communities who support them.

Saturday, November 23
9:00 am - 1:00pm
Yes, it is that time of year when pies are baked and shared with friends and family. On Saturday, November 23, the youth (ages 5 & up) will be gathering in the kitchen at 9:00 am to make pies. They will then deliver pies to OSLC members who are unable to worship with us due to health concerns. The youth will also be making pies for all to enjoy during the time of fellowship after worship on November 24th. Adults who want to help, too, please contact Rosemary S. or Andrea B. or the church office.
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- Nov 17
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.
The emBELLish choir regularly enhances worship by performing songs of praise. Bells rehearse on Wednesdays at 6:00 pm under the direction of our new Bell Director: Megan C.
