Woodshop Open House
As part of Kick-Off Weekend, the OSL Woodshop will host an open house all morning on September 9, to highlight this important ministry in the OSL congregation. Projects and tools will be on display (see photos), and members of the woodshop team will be there to answer questions and demonstrate some woodworking techniques. Coffee and treats will be on hand, and information on how you too can become part of the woodshop team will be available.
