Have a Heart for Jesus and Kids?

We currently have Grace Place teachers for each grade/age level but are in need of one more teacher for our 4-year-old class, kindergarten, 2nd grade, and 3rd grade. Ideally, we would like to have two leaders in each classroom to allow for more support for the children, their families, and each other as leaders.

Listen to the Lutheran Hour if you can’t come to church. It is broadcast on WFAX 100.7 at 11:00 am or 10:00 pm. Or listen to it as part of your devotional life. Every Sunday brings a new Gospel message.

How Happiness Happens – New Monday Evening Bible Study

This class meets on the 1st and 3rd Mondays each month in the Music Room from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm.

How long has it been since you felt a level of contagious, infectious, unstoppable happiness? In a recent survey, only 1/3 of Americans said they were happy. How can this be? Education is accessible to most. We’ve advanced in everything from medicine to technology. In this 6-session study, taught by Pastor Mann, based on a book by Max Lucado, we will discover an unexpected path to a lasting happiness that produces reliable joy in any season of life. How Happiness Happens is based on the teachings of Jesus and backed by modern research. It presents a surprising but practical way of living that will change you from the inside out.

We hope you will attend!


Calling All Volunteers!

We need your help with food pick up and delivery! There is a current need for an individual or a team to pick up food from the church on Tuesdays during the day and deliver to the appropriate groups. We are also in need of an individual or team to pick up on Tuesday evenings from Panera Bread at Lansdowne and bring to the church.

Disaster Relief Assistance - Hurricane Dorian

Thank you for your generous donations to provide assistance in the aftermath of Hurricane Dorian. After researching with disaster relief officials and talking with one of our members who had visited family in the Bahamas, we focused on the hard-hit Freeport area and a church that was actively engaged in assisting families. Our Saviour Lutheran Church in Freeport has been on the front line in providing food, water, and medical supplies as well as coordinating housing for victims. This week we sent a check for $2,000 to Our Saviour in Freeport to help those in need. We are in regular contact with Pastor Lewis of Our Saviour and have told him our church members will be praying for both those in need as well as his church congregation as they continue their efforts to help. Potentially, when the infrastructure returns and an organized volunteer effort has been established, we may be sending a team from OSWLC to help in the rebuilding. We will be providing updates from Our Saviour and you can also view updates on their Facebook page.

Thank you again for your generosity.
