Rehearsals on Wednesdays at 7:00 pm
We sing regularly for worship services on Sunday. Whether you are a seasoned vocalist or new to organized choir feel free to come some Wednesday night and give Choir a shot!
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.
