OSWLC is growing, and we need new leaders to start new groups to help people develop relationships, grow in their faith, and learn to serve. Over the years our small groups have been the glue that has made OSWLC the warm and caring community that it is today and it has inspired people to put their faith into action in their daily lives.
A four-week training program for new leaders will begin on Sunday mornings from 11:00 am—12:00 pm, starting on January 13th. This training will help you understand the basics of how to start a small group in your home or in your community. You will learn why small groups are important, how they work, the best ways to recruit people to join your small group, how to build community, and where you can find resources for study or serving.
January 31st to February 2nd

Join us as we are led through scripture looking at the women of the Bible. How we related to them? How are their struggles so similar to what we face today? How do we focus on how we can serve each other and serve the Lord at the same time. Sally Hiller will be our guide on this journey. We will spend a great weekend together having a wonderful time in Bible study and growing in our relationship with God.
