LWML ANNUAL CHRISTMAS PARTY!
December 2, at 1:00PM, in Bible Class Room
Families and all are invited to have lunch together and enjoy our program. Babysitting is also provided, so you can enjoy an unforgettable afternoon. Theresa Behanna is returning this year – a concert pianist, who engages the audience, mixing music and humor, and will help us ring in Christmas by playing the new baby grand piano!
No Admission Fee: Just bring a baby gift or donation for the Foundation for Life.
We will be selling RAFFLE TICKETS again, used to support LWML missions, both home and abroad. We will have a table before church and after Sunday School for you to purchase tickets at $5 each, or 3 for $10.
Hanging of the Greens
The Altar Guild will be decorating the church on December 9th, 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.
Join us December 16th, at 5:00 pm! Bring the whole family and let’s fill every seat on the bus as we spread some Christmas cheer, singing to our shut-in members! 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.
