The OSL Library will host a Resurrection Egg Hunt in the Library each Sunday and Wednesday through April 1, to keep God’s grace at the heart of the Lenten season. Children and youth who check out items and find one of the Resurrection Eggs hidden among the Library shelves will receive a prize after they explain the way the item inside relates to the Easter story.
Connecting Faith and Life, an adult discussion and study group facilitated by Pr. Randy, will begin studying the book Loving Jesus by Mark Allan Powell on Wednesday, Feb. 21, at 6:00 p.m., in the Conference Room. This will be an exploration of how simple religious practices can move us toward a closer walk with Jesus. A $15 donation will help cover the cost of the book, which is available in the Church Office or at the Information Center. All are welcome.
The OSL Library’s Winter One Church One Read title is Wonder by R. J. Palacio. The Library has 12 copies. The discussion will take place on March 18 in the Conference Room.
