OSWLC is holding elections for church officers and members of the Mission and Ministry Servant Leaders’ Group (MMSLG) and the Open Arms Board of Governance at the November Voter’s Assembly. The church needs thoughtful leaders to participate in the governance of Our Savior's Way.
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.
Looking for the sermon notes and text? On the OSWLC website, look for "Sermons" under “Connect” to find them. You can also listen a recent sermon by clicking on "audio." The Sunday publications are also on the website under “Members.”
Sundays at 9:30 am
Faith Connect is the first class in the OSWLC discipleship series. This is an informal discussion group that lasts for six weeks on Sunday mornings in room #3. Faith Connect will help you connect with new friends, develop a closer relationship with God, have a deeper understanding of the Christian faith, and allow you to become more actively involved in God's mission. This class is geared toward answering the questions and needs of the participants. Everyone is welcome!

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!
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.
Thank you again for your generosity.
Girl Scout Troop 5547 is asking OSWLC to help them collect food and book donations. Elizabeth Doble is working on her Silver Award project in conjunction with Backpack Buddies to provide food for underprivileged kids in Loudoun County schools. When the kids pick up their food, the troop would like to make sure they have a book in their bag to enjoy.
Backpack Coalition preferred items include: cups of ravioli, beefaroni or spaghetti, canned tuna or chicken, canned soup, canned vegetables, cheese/peanut butter crackers, easy macaroni and cheese, cereal (individual-sized boxes), instant oatmeal, granola or cereal bars, raisins, nuts, trail mix, fruit cups, pudding, applesauce, shelf milk (white or chocolate), and 100% juice boxes.
Books can be any genre for children ages 5-14 years old.
A collection box will be located in the narthex. Thank you so much for your help!
