OSLC Pastoral Call Committee

There will be a congregational workshop on Saturday, January 23, from 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.  Lunch will be provided.  We will meet in the sanctuary, have breakout sessions in Sunday School rooms, and we will ask that everyone wear masks and maintain safe social distancing. The workshop will be led by Pastor Tim Christ, who is our acting Mission District Dean.

The workshop has several goals:

1. To engage the congregation in biblical study and reflection upon the nature of the call of God.
2. To invite congregational members to evaluate past relationships between the pastors and our congregation. To discover what our members find to be the most important characteristics of a Pastor.
3. To reflect how conflict and tension are handled in the congregation.
4. To enlist all members of the congregation into providing input into several aspects of the congregational profile that is sent to the NALC.

Please keep this committee in your prayers asking they have insight and wisdom when it comes to finding a new pastor. The members of the committee are: Kimberly Butler, Carmen Nazario, Bill Hebb, Alan Cumming, Blaine Davis, and Roger Stai.

BYOB – Bring Your Own Bibles

The Gospel lesson in the bulletin used to not be printed in the bulletin, so that you would either use your own Bibles, or the pew Bibles to follow along. We are returning to that, and encouraging you to bring your Bibles from home, to follow the reading of this lesson on Sunday morning.

  

  

White Gifts Drive

Christmas brought Our Saviour’s another opportunity to share the true meaning of Christmas. At the Christmas Eve services we collected “White Gifts” for newborns. The gifts served as a reminder that Christmas is a time for giving and the greatest gift was the savior we were given. The gifts were wrapped in white for the purity of our new born king. The gifts were donated to St Paul’s Children’s Services in Tyler. Wyatt from St Paul’s accepted the gifts and sent thanks to all who shared the love.
