Opportunities

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.

OSL’s Caring Friends expands the visitation program to individuals who are homebound or in nursing homes. There are many opportunities for you to join this important ministry! Contact Deb Harlan, 336-2942, ext. 48, or dharlan@oslchurch.com.

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.
