Mental Health First Aid is the initial help given to someone who may be developing a mental illness or experiencing a mental health crisis. It is not a substitute for professional help, but may help in stabilizing the person until appropriate professional assistance is engaged. Free Mental Health First Aid training will be held at OSL on Thursday, Feb. 28, from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Register at mhfa022819.eventbrite.com. Questions?

Register with Michelle, 336-2942, ext. 28, or mianderson@oslchurch.com. A suggested donation of $5 will help defray the cost of the booklet used.

OSL Food Ministry will serve breakfast this Sunday in The Gathering Place, starting at 9:30. This week’s menu: French toast sticks. Wednesday dinner will be lasagna. Thank you for contributing to the freewill offering to help cover expenses.
The third annual Chili Cook-Off/Cupcake Walk will be this Sunday, Feb. 24, at noon, in The Gathering Place. Come enjoy a variety of chilis prepared by your OSL friends, and vote for your favorite in the People’s Choice Award. A secret panel will award first-, second-, and third-place honors. Not a fan of chili? There will be soups available too! And, as usual, a cupcake walk will be held during the event. Proceeds will go toward Mission: Possible Reignite.
The OSL Library’s winter One Church One Read is Sold on a Monday by Krista McMorris. Inspired by an actual newspaper photograph that stunned the nation, Sold on a Monday is a powerful novel of love, redemption, and the unexpected paths that bring us home. Check out a copy in the Library, then join in the discussion on March 24 at 10:00 a.m. in the Conference Room.


A Little Further Out...

On Sunday, March 3, members of Pueblo de Dios, OSL’s mission partner, will make breakfast as a thank-you for our ongoing friendship. That morning, you may take your breakfast to the Friendship Room to meet Jordan Bruxvoort, the new coordinator of Vecinos Unidos (formerly Ayuda), as he shares more about mission work with our Latino/a/x brothers and sisters here in Sioux Falls.
Everyone is invited to the Silent Auction Banquet and Youth Talent Show, on Sunday, March 3, at 5:00 p.m., in The Gathering Place. Come for a fantastic meal and support OSL’s talented middle- and high-school students as they put on a show you will not soon forget! The kids will be sharing some of their hopes and goals for the summer, and taking a moment to thank everyone for helping with the Silent Auction. Tickets are on sale near the Youth Information Table, for $10 each. Contact John, jschomberg@oslchurch.com, with questions.
All are welcome to join in the Button Cross Canvas Cross+Gen Event, on March 10, at 10:00 a.m., in Fellowship Hall. Come explore the Lenten theme through meaningful discussion while designing your own cross!
Walking Workout Wednesdays will begin on March 13, at 10:00 a.m., in Fellowship Hall, and continue through April 10.

Following the DVD workout, everyone will be invited on a 30-minute walk around the building—inside, of course! Come for a fun, active time.
