Opportunities


Flowers for Worship – The 2018 calendar is now available! Please sign up on the chart outside of the church office. If you provide the flowers, you are invited to take them home after the Sunday worship.

Coffee hosts are needed for Sundays. See the sign up sheet posted in the kitchen. Thanks for your help!

Our Savior’s Prayer Chain is a group of people who share in the ministry of intentional daily prayer for others as requested. If you would like more information about becoming involved in this ministry, please contact Linda Krueger or the church office.  To share a prayer request please call Linda Krueger with the specifics. She will ensure that Pastor is informed of each request. She will also want to know whether you would like to have your request placed in the congregation’s worship service prayers. To keep the roster current, please do keep her informed about the situations (improvements and setbacks).

Card Ministry – Tell them you care with a card. There is nothing quite like receiving a card to cheer you up or let you know that others are thinking about you. Join the OSLC Card Ministry and give that special feeling to others around you. Just pick up a packet of cards from the Information Center and take them home. Send out the cards to anyone – someone who is ill or having a difficult time; someone who needs a“thank you” for doing something special for the church or others; or send a card for a birthday or anniversary. Send a card to someone you have missed seeing at church lately. You decide when and who to send the cards to. When you run out of cards, just pick up another package and keep going. Let’s join together to show our church family and others that we are a “caring congregation.”

Membership- Are you interested in membership at OSLC? Know someone who is? Do you have questions about the church and what it teaches and what it believes? Pastor Jim is planning a new member’s class soon. See him for more information.

Did You Know…
That Our Savior’s has a dedicated group of volunteers who provide temporary transportation for members of the congregation? If you or someone you know needs a ride to worship services and other church events, or occasionally needs a ride to a doctor’s appointment, call the church office and we will see if we can help you out. We can’t guarantee we will be able to meet every need, but we will do what we can. Please call the church office at 266-5313 and give us as much advance notice as possible.

Recycling
Please take note of the recycling bins placed throughout the church. It’s one small step we can take to help care for our environment. If you are interested in volunteering one month to help, please contact Ron Willis.

Volunteer Church Librarian Needed

We are looking for a church librarian! The job requires organizing and maintaining the church library and promoting its use. If you are interested in volunteering for this position, pick up a copy of the job description in the Outreach mail box in the Fellowship Hall or talk to any member of the Outreach Committee. Questions? See Celia Cuthbertson or Andrea McGee.

Garden Help

We are looking for someone who has the time and ability to pick up some compost/soil from the city and drop it off for the two raised beds on the west side of the church sheds. These beds were built to create a sort of community garden, due to the fact that the local community consists of quite a few apartment dwellers who have no possibility of gardening in any meaningful way. The beds have been fallow for a few years but we hope to get them revived. In order to do this we need to cap off the soil levels. If you are willing to help in any way (pick up and drop off the soil, assist in watering one week of the summer, donate plants), please contact Katie Davis. It’s a little late this year to plant much, but we want to be ready for next summer.
