Bulletin Notes & Upcoming Events
  • On Sunday of Memorial Day weekend, we will recognize and pray for those either currently serving or with a history of service in the military. If you or someone you know would like to be included, please submit information to the church office.  Name, Rank, Branch of Service.  Currently serving, former service, deceased (not killed in action), deceased while serving.  Please submit information by May 23.
  • Window Pane Pledge Drive: Although we have "made do" for many years, we must now replace the windows in the rental house.  Please see the poster in the narthex and use the available envelopes to either sponsor a window or contribute what you can to the overall project. UPDATE: We are almost there! Please help us by contributing whatever you can -- no amount is too small!
  • ZUMBA classes (exercise dance) are being considered at no charge for members. We would hold classes in the basement. If you might be interested, contact Kathryn Sage or Marcie Kolberg.
  • The women's group has changed their meeting dates to the 4th Tuesday of the month at 1:00 pm. The next meeting will be on June 28 (August 23, October 25). The December meeting and Christmas party will be Saturday, December 10, with brunch starting at 10:00 am.
  • During May, our Second Mile Giving offerings are designated for the Manteno Veterans Home through the VFW of Illinois. The Home offers skilled care and services to eligible veterans. Opened in 1986, the Home has five major nursing care units and two ancillary service and support buildings, with a total capacity of 340 beds.
  • As you clean out your closets, please consider donating winter coats, hats, gloves, scarves and boots for people of all ages. Bring your donations to OSL. Together with many other area churches, organizations and agencies, we will be joining with Asbury for the Project Homeless Connect on November 10, at which distribution of winter clothing will be a part.
  • Salvation Army Food Barrel: This summer we will be collecting canned goods and other non-perishable food items for the Salvation Army Food Pantry. Since the summer is a difficult time for food pantries, our goal is to fill one 55-gallon barrel with food items. Please donate between May and August.
  • We continue to collect items for Lutheran World Relief. We are currently seeking donations of full-size gentle bar soap (like Ivory or Dove) for both the baby and personal care kits. A basket is located in the sanctuary for the collection of your gifts.
  • Opportunities are available for bulletin sponsors ($20 per month). Call the church office or email osl.secretary@comcast.net to sign up.
  • Please sign up for altar flowers on the chart in the narthex. Flower cost is now $10 per vase. Since we are now using silk flowers, you will not be able to take these flowers home.
