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.

Christ Questions & Answers
If we all use the same Bible, why are there so many different denominations? What makes the Lutheran Church different than my other Church? What about evolution? Isn't it a proven scientific fact? What can we know about the end of time? What about life issues: Infant Baptism, Divorce, Homosexuality, Abortion? Does God still speak to us today? Is His Word reliable? Is it relevant for the 21st century?"

If these are questions that you have asked, then mark your calendar for our next Fit For Life in Christ session. Next class Start Date: September 21, 2014, 12:30 p.m.

Fit For Life in Christ is a 10 to 12 week course that presents the Word of God in exciting and meaningful ways. It is a course for those who are interested in membership in our church, or for anyone who wants to know what it really means to have a relationship with Jesus Christ.

You owe it to yourself and your life with God to register and bring a friend to this enlightening, faith-building opportunity!

Call the church office to register or for more information.
