BACK TO THE BASICS! A new Adult Information Class will begin on Monday, June 3, at 7:00 PM. The class will cover the most important teachings of the Bible as they are believed, taught and confessed in this Lutheran Congregation. The class is designed for anyone considering membership in Our Savior Lutheran Church and for members of the congregation who would like a great review of basic Bible doctrine. It should be particularly interesting for both member and non-member school parents to familiarize yourself with what your kids are learning in class every day. The class will meet from 7:00 - 8:30 PM, on Monday evenings, and continue for twelve weeks. Babysitting and refreshments will be provided. Join us on Monday, June 3, to go “BACK TO THE BASICS.” You will be glad you did.
1. DO YOU HAVE 15, 30, 45 minutes to spare on Mondays between 11am and Noon?
2. DO YOU WISH to bear witness to the Sanctity of God-Given Life but can’t find a time to drive out to Planned Parenthood on I-45?
3. ARE you WILLING to peacefully protest against the sinful barbarity of taking God-Given LIFE through abortion?
There IS a solution! Now that 290 is finished – Hallelujah! – we OSL Pro-Lifers will begin, again, “standing or sitting” and Praying with signs, along the INBOUND FRONTAGE ROAD of Hwy 290 at Hollister (North Side – the same lot as Golden Corral where Planned Parenthood has a facility).
We will be there from 11am until Noon every Monday, beginning Monday, May 13th. You do not need to phone anyone, or make any arrangements ahead of time. Spend any part of (but hopefully the whole) hour bearing witness to God’s gift of LIFE.
“Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you, before you were born, I set you apart.” Jeremiah 1:5

VBS 2019 - June 17-20
Thinking about Noah brings to mind images of cute little boats and rainbows with 2x2 giraffes, elephants, and kangaroos. But, the real story of Noah was no cute fairy tale. What was it like to stand alone as the world around you collapses into sin, revolt, and death? What was it like to be given the responsibility to rescue God's creation from certain destruction trusting only in God's promise of salvation?
The "ARK" OSL VBS will take you on that journey with Noah. We will build, prepare, care, and believe that God always keep his promises.
5:30 PM - Family Meal - Each evening will start with a delicious family meal and fellowship time. Dinner is served until 6:00 PM each night.
5:45 PM - Ark Provisions and Supply - Noah and his family supplied the ARK with everything they and their "guests" would need for an entire year! Help them get ready!
6:15 PM - Constantine Investigates! Connie wants the TRUTH! Our favorite PUPpet is flooded with questions about how Noah could have possibly accomplished this impossible task!
6:30 PM to 8:30 PM - VBS Program - Kids preschool age to Grade 5 (completed) participate in our VBS programs. They meet famous figures from Genesis, learn songs, play games, and NEW THIS YEAR - learn what it was really like on the ARK (CAUTION LIVE ANIMALS). Kids and teens (Grade 6 and through high school) will participate as group leaders. Pastor White will lead a study on the ARK itself. Child care is provided for infants and toddlers (not yet potty trained)
THURSDAY NIGHT FINALE - Don't miss our special FINALE on Thursday as we wrap up our VBS. The kids will present the songs they have learned with family games and an ice cream social. The FINALE is not to be missed!
