Be sure to get your copy of OSL’s 75th Anniversary Book, available at the Welcome Center on Sunday or in the Church Office during the week. Only $5 per copy, and a great gift idea! It presents an overview of the congregation from its earliest days right up to now, and is not to be missed!
It’s time to think about spreading holiday cheer, through the 2021 OSL Angel Tree, up now near the south entrance! You may participate by taking a card from the tree, as usual, or you may access the Virtual Angel Tree and follow the instructions there. Gifts must be new, unwrapped, and delivered to the Church Office by December 1. Contact Melissa Nesdahl with questions. Thank you for blessing children who may not otherwise receive a gift this Christmas.

Opportunities to Help
As Christmas approaches (don’t look at us that way: it is approaching!), it’s good to remember our neighbors in prisons and jails. Because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, it will again be impossible to provide fudge for inmates, nor can groups gather to pack Christmas Sacks. But you can still provide a Christmas reminder to every inmate in the South Dakota State Penitentiary in Sioux Falls, the Mike Durfee State Prison in Springfield, the minimum-security unit in Yankton, and the inmates in the county jails in Sioux Falls and Yankton. Chaplains are asking for financial contributions to purchase prepackaged items for the sacks, with the goal of raising $11,500 by Friday, November 12. If you can help, send your donation to SD Prison Chaplain Association, Christmas Sacks, 601 West 57th St., Sioux Falls, SD, 57108. Put “Christmas Sacks” on the memo line of your check. Thank you for your generosity!
OSL supports the Food to You Mobile Food Pantry by donating various food items to help local families in need, and helping with food distributions. The item for November is peanut butter; for December, tuna and tuna helper. Always appreciated are toothpaste, shampoo, and deodorant for Hygiene Packs. Place your donations in the marked bins near the south entrance, by the Library.
