to Serve

Be an usher! Openings are available for all worship services. It’s a great way to serve your fellow OSL members! Contact Loretta Nelson, lnelson@oslchurch.com or 336-2942, ext. 14.

The Caring Friends program expands OSL’s visitation program to members who are homebound or in nursing homes or care facilities. Currently, there are opportunities for Caring Friends at Good Samaritan Luther Manor and Good Samaritan Prairie Creek. To learn more, contact Pr. Tim Lemme, tlemme@oslchurch.com or 336-2942, ext. 19, or Deb Harlan, dharlan@oslchurch.com or 336-2942, ext. 48.

Volunteers are tutoring seven students at Hayward Elementary, 400 N. Valley View Rd., on Mondays, from 2:45 to 3:45 p.m.—and you can help! There’s no need to commit to every Monday; just visit http://bit.ly/2feBb1i and put in your information. Materials are supplied. This is a project of the Ayuda Initiative, an ELCA ministry partner of OSL. If you need help or have questions, contact Jennifer, ayuda.elca@gmail.com or 339-8571.

Serve OSL TV Ministry as a camera operator on Sunday mornings—two openings now exist. It’s fun and easy, and a great way to help spread OSL’s ministry far and wide. Stop by the TV control room on the lower level on Sunday morning to join up. Training will be provided.

Here’s your chance to count! Every Monday morning, a group of dedicated volunteers meets to process the weekly deposit. Would you like to help count the offerings? The time commitment is two to three hours, but it is not a weekly commitment—counters who are available periodically during the year are encouraged to volunteer. Excel spreadsheet and/or 10 key experience is helpful but not required. For more information or to volunteer, call Barb Haugan, 336-2942, ext.23.

Caring Ministries has a volunteer opportunity for people to help greet members who are coming to the Footcare Clinic on the first Wednesday of each month. Opportunities exist in the morning, from 9:00 to noon, and afternoon, noon to 3:00. Contact Michelle Anderson, RN, Faith Community Nurse, 336-2942, ext. 28, or mianderson@oslchurch.com, to help serve in this ministry.

Stephen Ministry Training
In January, Our Savior’s will begin training people to become Stephen Ministers. If you would like to explore serving people through Stephen Ministry, talk with Pr. Tim Lemme, tlemme@oslchurch.com or 336-2942, ext.19.
Autumn brings out The Caretakers, a group of volunteers who help with clean-up and various other chores around the OSL campus. If spring showers appear, the group always finds things to do inside. To join the Caretakers, simply show up in The Gathering Place on any Thursday morning, as you are able, from 9:00 to noon. Wear appropriate work clothes (hat and work gloves) and bring a water bottle. Tools will be provided. Questions? Contact Jim Ryan, 941-9314.
