Thanksgiving Worship
Thanksgiving is a time for families to gather for the purpose of giving thanks to God for abundant blessings. Will you be in Sioux Falls this year for the holiday? You (and your relatives!) are invited to Thanksgiving Worship on Wednesday, November 23, at 7:00 p.m., in the Sanctuary. Let us put our voices together in praise and thanksgiving to our God whose blessings exceed our deserving.

The Gifts of Advent: A Midweek Series for Advent
A gift is given freely and offered in love. In the weeks before Christmas, we often race around finding just the right gifts for friends and family. The season of Advent is itself a gift—a time set apart to prepare our hearts for the coming of Christ. We give thanks for God’s gift to us in the baby of Bethlehem.

OSL’s midweek Advent worship services will begin on Wednesday, November 30, and continue through Wednesday, December 21, at 7:00 p.m., in the Sanctuary. The December 14 worship service will be the annual Healing Service, especially for anyone who has experienced any kind of loss.

Come share the Gifts of Advent during this joyous season!
