Summer Reading Challenge
Spend your summer reading the Psalms. This is an amazing book of the Bible that offers us 150 chapters of praise, lament, and thanksgiving. Beginning June 1 simply read one chapter a day and by the end of September you will have met the challenge!
Each summer 6-10th Grade Campers experience campfires, high-ropes, zip-lining, team building, bible exploration, small group time, large group games, hiking, swimming pool, volleyball, basketball, archery, and more. 11th graders through post high school young adults may serve as counselors.
Collaborative confirmation returns to central Phoenix!!
Once again 6 Lutheran congregations will be working together to provide confirmation ministry for youth in grades 7, 8, and 9.
Confirmation ministry meets on Sunday afternoons from 12:45 pm- 3:00 pm for lunch, music, teaching, games, small groups, and prayer. We meet the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month.
Each session, lunch will be provided.
C.A.L.L. is a collaboration ministry between OSLC, Grace, Faith, Shepherd of the Valley, Celebration and Prince of Peace Lutheran Churches.
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- July 21
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.
2019 remaining dates are Sept 15 and Nov 17.
