A Little Further Out...

Things are about to get crazy...but that’s what happens when it’s time for Midnight Madness, when OSL invites Augustana University students to come over for an evening of study, relaxation, recreation—and pizza!—as they prepare for finals. This year’s Midnight Madness will be on Sunday, May 13, from 6:00 to midnight, and there are many opportunities for you to help. Stop by the table in The Gathering Place on Sundays, starting on April 8, to donate your time, food, or financial support for pizzas, or contact Loretta Nelson, or 336-2942, ext. 14. Thank you for your support of Our Savior’s Augie neighbors.
The Envelope Fundraiser supports OSL students going to Week of Hope in Minneapolis and the ELCA Youth Gathering in Houston this summer. Stop by the south windows, near the Celebrate Center, grab a numbered envelope, put cash or a check (made to OSL) with the corresponding number of dollars as the envelope’s number, and place it in the Offering or turn it into the office by April 22. Thank you for supporting OSL youth!
