Youth Group Stewardship Opportunities
Youth Ushers at OSL
Our Savior teens and Sunday school kids are invited to act as ushers the Second Sunday of every month. If you are interested in ushering, please contact the Worship Director, Dave Greeson or his assistant Sarah Roberts, for more information. We certainly appreciate all your help.
Choir & Music
New singers and musicians are always welcome to join in and participate in worship services... that includes children and teens.
Practices are held on Wednesdays at 5:00 p.m. Contact Debra Demming for more information.
Skits & Plays
It is getting to be that time of year again, when the OSL Sunday School Kids and the OSL Youth Group start to add special elements to the worship service. If you would like to direct a play, be an actor, or just help with music, props or background, please see Jean Shipley.
Did you know... If you have a child or teenager that attends Our Savior, you are invited to be on The Board of Young People's Work? It's true. We want to see you on Sundays too! Really, EVERYONE (kids or not) is invited to join us. Come and share your thoughts and ideas about bible studies, fund raisers, events, etc... with the Director (Angel Roberts).
Sunday Morning Bible Class
The OSL Youth Group meets Sunday mornings from 9:15 - 10:30 a.m. in the fellowship hall. Teens meet together to study God’s Word and how it applies to their lives. It is a great way to explore the tough questions about faith and life.
Don't be shy. Come and join us. We have a chair waiting here just for you! Whether you are a member or just visiting, we are glad you are here. Ask questions, join our events, share your name... we want to meet you and become friends. So, welcome! Our Savior's Youth Group strives to be a fun and safe place for all.
Students entering 7th through 9th grades, and their parents, meet every Wednesday night, from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m. for Catechism classes. These classes are the first steps toward being confirmed as a member of Our Savior.
If you would like to join this group or have any questions, please call the church office or the Pastor.

Connecting With God Through Technology
As a mom and former youth leader, I am often reminded that I am not very "tech savvy", especially when it comes to the way you young people like to get information.
As teenagers, your life is all about getting information (and giving information) through reading other's viewpoints and expressing your own opinions via social media, texting, tweeting, chatting, skyping and whatever else it is you do/use with your friends. I admit, I can't keep up with all the ways you teens give and get information.
I do know that the traditional way --sitting and listening to someone and carrying-on a (face-to-face) conversation-- is not a preferred method. So, please allow me to attempt to "get with the times" or at least attempt to act like I am a little clued in.
I found a few websites, geared toward Christian youths, that I want you all to check out. Now, I don't want these links to be substitutes for you coming to Sunday School or Church, but rather a conversation starter and/or resources for you all to use to get information about God from other places, as well as, from Sunday School and Church. Let me know what you think.
Oh, and BTW, if you discover any similar sites, please feel free to share them with me and your fellow youth group members.
