Unique Mission Opportunity—in Harrisburg! OSL mission partner Table of Grace is seeking two families or individuals to serve as Mission Households for a period of one year at Table of Grace. Together with mission households from other partner congregations, these OSL-commissioned “missionaries” will help provide a critical mass of people to this developing congregation in the Harrisburg School District.

A four-week miniseries based on the movie All Saints will begin in worship services this weekend and run through Feb. 10–11.

Take your experience to the next level by participating in a LifeGroup study during this miniseries. Sign up to be part of a LifeGroup at the table in The Gathering Place, beginning Dec. 30–31. For more information, or to serve as a LifeGroup Connector, contact Trish Syverson, email@example.com, or call the Church Office, 336-2942.
