Praise, Prayer & Pie
November 24 at 9:30 am
All are welcome to praise the Lord for the many blessings in our lives. Offerings of time, talent and treasure will be received and blessed. After worship, homemade pie will be served.
How do we determine what Scripture text to read in worship? OSLC uses the narrative lectionary. The Narrative Lectionary is a four-year cycle of readings. The Biblical texts include the major episodes in Scripture. They are arranged in a narrative sequence to help people see Scripture as a story that has coherence and a dynamic movement. Texts were selected that lead well to the proclamation of what God is doing. The stories tell of hope and disappointment, suffering and redemption. In all these varied contexts, we find God dealing with the complexities of human life. Stories from the gospels differ each year, avoiding repetition and highlighting what is distinctive about each gospel’s telling of the story of Jesus.
Join us for worship on Sundays at 9:30 am.

Worship needs You!

Thanks to everyone who already serves in any of these capacities. You are a great group of people and there is always room for more. So if you would like to serve in any of these positions or already do, simply email the firstname.lastname@example.org to put your name on the list.

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.
