Hanging of the Greens The Altar Guild will be decorating the church on December 13th, at 12:00 noon, following Sunday School! We meet in the narthex and help with this OSL tradition of Hanging the Greens. This is a great afternoon for the family to share. There is something for teenagers on up, Men & Women! The Altar Guild appreciates your help! Sandwiches & drinks will be provided for the workers in the narthex. For any questions contact Debbie Adams.
Celebrate the joy of our newborn Savior with flowers in memory of loved ones or a special occasion. Your dedication will be printed in a special book that will be handed out at the Christmas services. You may email your request to Debbie. Each poinsettia plant is $10.00. Checks are to be made out to OSL. Poinsettias will be available for pick up after the New Year’s Eve Service. Poinsettia dedication deadline for the book is December 15th.

Then we’ll come back to church for snacks and fellowship. Bring a snack to share and come with your voices strong and ready to sing.
READ THE WHOLE BIBLE IN 2020
The Elders have prepared a carefully balanced program of home Bible readings for you and your family. The readings are structured on a schedule of readings for five days each week that will lead you through the whole Bible in 2020. The readings will combine together history, Gospels, Epistles, Prophecy, and poetry from both Old and New Testaments. The program was sent out to the entire congregation. If you didn’t get yours, or if you would like extra copies to share with someone you would like to bless, call the church office or download the PDF version. This could be the best year of your life – from beginning to end, Genesis to Revelation. Just five days a week and your life will never be the same. That is a promise from God.
Collection of Travel Size Toiletries
Please bring your unused hotel shampoos and soaps to donate to the Houston area women’s shelter. There is a box in the Narthex for the collection, near the men’s restroom. If you plan to travel and staying at a hotel, just pick up the bottles that you might not even use to put in the box to give to the ladies at the shelter. -Thank you, OSL Night Circle
