Virtual Sunday Fellowship Hour for October 11 at 11:00 am
Build – Strengthen – Grow — or even Start — your relationship with other church members online. Staying connected when a lot of us are still physically apart is more important than ever. So, bring your own coffee or beverage/snack of choice and log in (or call in) at 11:00 am every Sunday. And don’t worry if you’re not able to join right at 11am — ” just get here if you can”!
(lyrics from Get Here (if you can) by Oleta Adams, 1990)
… or simply call in from any phone. Call +1 301 715 8592, enter Meeting ID: 732 534 989.
Do you have little ones at home who want to share the joy? Invite them to share a picture they have drawn or come with their own question or answer for the group. Or, as we’ve seen in some previous weeks—show up in costume!!!
Looking forward to seeing and/or hearing you on Zoom this Sunday!
Read on for details about in-person and online, indoors and outdoors, active and laid-back connecting —plenty of opportunities for kids in grades 6-12!
- High School Youth — Pumpkin outing to Great Country Farms on 10/18, 12-5pm
Join us for the farm’s Fall Pumpkin Harvest Festival. Picking pumpkins, getting lost in their corn maze, cider pressing demos, and roasting marshmallows are all part of the plan. And let’s not forget those freshly made Cider Donuts!
$14/child and $16/adult
RSVP: Due to COVID, advanced tickets are required, so please let Pastor Terri or Renee Breeding know by October 15th if you plan on attending. Your HS friends are welcome, too!
We will meet at church at noon and plan on returning by 5pm. Youth may travel on the OSLC bus with us or caravan in your own vehicles. As before, we’ll wear masks on the bus and any other times we will be indoors or unable to keep our distance. Your own water bottle is always a good idea.
Hope you can make it!
- PALMS Night (Middle School Youth) on 10/25, 5-7pm
RSVP as soon as possible. Friends welcome!
Have a mask for whenever we’ll need to be close or indoors, but we won’t require kids to have them on the whole time.
Come, let your light SHINE!
~ Pastor Terri
Please note that meeting/events may be occurring in person and/or online. Please check to confirm!

- Dave’s Thursday Morning Class
Join Dave Raecke and others on Thursday mornings at 10:00 am via ZOOM for a class/Bible study on “Down + Out: Where Grace Takes You” .
Study summary: “Rediscovering” Luther’s ideas of 500 years ago – Justification and Vocation; two ideas—at once simple and scandalous, easily grasped and easily forgotten—central to the Biblical witness, but rediscovered by Martin Luther. Be reintroduced to the reality of God’s promises and pointed in the way to where grace takes you.

Next Drive-In Movie Night at OSLC … ???
We’re hoping to host at least one more drive-in movie night at OSLC — and soon! Be sure to keep an eye out for news on the next film date and title. And, certainly, if you have any recommendations for a classic American film — especially a “spooky” one in honor of the season — that is no longer under copyright protection, let Tom Bartkiewicz, Krista Coyner or Yvette in the church office know.
