August Sermon Series
What Really Matters
Beginning August 12, OSLC will be looking at three specific stories from the Gospels and hearing from our Youth about what really matters. Is it what you wear or eat? How much money you have? Receiving eternal life? Protecting your treasures? Being bigger and better? Jesus has some things to say about what really matters for you and for this life. Join us at 9:30 am for worship.
Worship needs You!
Ushers, Greeters, Readers, Communion Servers, Sound, Projectionists, and Assisting Ministers, it takes many people each week to offer a quality worship service. 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.

Sunday, August 19
This is the Sunday the youth will be leading worship and sharing about their experiences at the 2018 Youth Gathering in Houston this past June.
At the gathering, 31,000 high school youth and their adult leaders from across the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America gathered for a week of faith formation. Through days spent in interactive learning, worship, Bible study, service and fellowship, young people grew in faith and were challenged and inspired to live their faith in their daily lives.
Our primary scripture was Ephesians 2:8 “For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God.”
OLSC High School youth partnered with Trinity Lutheran to attend this amazing week in Texas and will be offering a youth Sunday at Trinity on August 12.
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.
