Opportunities to Serve

Connect faith to everyday life by being one of 25 OSL volunteers who will help to serve breakfast at the Banquet on Thursday, April 19. Sign up at the Information Center, or call Jon Voight, 334-8410 or 323-9591.

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.

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.

The Food to You item for March is hearty soup. Your food donations will be used by local families in need. Donations may be placed in the marked bins near the south entrance, by the Library. Thank you for your generosity!
Among the many opportunities to serve OSL and the larger community, two currently stand out: Ushers and Information Center hosts. Each of these volunteer positions is an important component of Our Savior’s dedication to hospitality, to members and visitors alike. The time commitment is not great, and schedules are adjustable. Contact Loretta Nelson, lnelson@oslchurch.com or 336-2942, ext. 14, for more information.
Death, whether expected or sudden, affects all of us at one time or another, and the church plays an important role in helping people cope with loss. You can help fill that role through OSL’s Bereavement Ministry Program, delivering a Bereavement Packet and Dinner to Your Door meal to members who have recently lost a loved one. Contact Deb Harlan, 336-2942, ext. 48, or dharlan@oslchurch.com, to help with this important ministry.
Winter doesn't stop The Caretakers, a group of volunteers who help with clean-up and various other chores around the OSL campus. During the cold months, 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.
