OSL Calendar Updates
Do you have an activity or event that you want to share with your church family? The deadline for getting something into the weekly bulletin is every Tuesday by close of business. If you want something added to the Monthly Good News Newsletter Calendar, get a note to the church office as far in advanced as possible. You can also, send us a note via email, Facebook or Twitter.
Notice to All Members
All activities taking place in the church and/or involving our people, need to be added to the calendar in the office once the activity is planned. This way it will be possible to keep from having conflicting activities being planned and resources from being double booked. Before setting a date, you need to make sure there is no other activity already planned for the date you want. You may give the information to Jan Krapohl or Mary Broomfield to be written on the calendar or you may write it on there yourself. Thank you for your help in keeping our schedules running smoothly.
Share Experiences and Strengthen Bonds with Family and Friends
Please make plans to join us this month for these Exciting Events!
Annual Ice Cream Social
We All Scream For Ice Cream!!! The FREE Annual Ice Cream Social is scheduled for Sunday, August 3rd, 2014.
Beat the summer heat by joining the Our Savior Youth Group for some cool neighborhood hospitality. During the event we will share ice cream (with your favorite toppings), enjoy Christian and Gospel music, and savor great conversations. I am sure the teens will be happy to tell you about the fun they experienced at the state gathering.
This is a FREE, family-friendly event organized by the Youth Group to help everybody get to know each other.
We will accept monetary donations during the event, but please don’t feel like you need to contribute. The Ice Cream Social is a FREE event and anything you choose to give is strictly voluntary.

We are very excited to announce the dates for Our Savior’s 2014 Vacation Bible School. This year we are trying something new; switching to a two-day format rather than sticking to the traditional five day schedule. We will still be doing all the same fun activities, including music, crafts, snacks, Bible challenges and story sessions. It’s just going to be consolidated. We hope it will give you a little more free time, a lot more joy and save you some gas money.
Join us for VBS on Friday, August 8th, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. and Saturday, August 9th, from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
As we are sure you are aware, volunteers are one of the most important elements in making sure our VBS program runs as smoothly as possible. Volunteers, you know we cannot do it without you! So, PLEASE help us make Our Savior’s 2014 VBS a success.
Before VBS, we ask that you pray for teachers, helpers and students. You can also help before-hand by making phone calls to students and families, preparing craft materials, or (days before) planning and helping with refreshments. If you are tech savvy, you can even help us by spreading the word on-line with Facebook, Twitter, etc.
During VBS we need volunteers for all of the categories listed below.
Volunteer forms that ask for your name, address and phone number will be available at church soon. You may contact the Board of Education Director, Jean Shipley, or the church office if you have any questions. THANK YOU for your support.
Every time there are five Sundays in a month, our Sunday school kids collect coins for the Ablaze ministry.
Ablaze is an initiative to ignite 100 million hearts with the Gospel.
Don't forget to bring all the loose change you can find with you to church on:
Sunday, August 31st, 2014 to help support this worthwhile cause.
If you would like to attend or volunteer for any of the events or activities going on at Our Savior, or have any questions, please call the church office.
