Orders placed by 2:00 p.m. Monday will be available to pick up on Thursday afternoon in the Church Office, or at the Youth Information Table on Sunday mornings. OSL Youth continue to sell Hy-Vee and Fareway gift cards as well. All proceeds help Youth Ministry.
OS Youth will be heading to Valleyfair for the annual summer pilgrimage on Thursday, June 29, for a day of fun in the sun! The group will leave OSL at 7:00 a.m. and return by 10:00 p.m. Students who have completed grades six through 12, as well as their friends, are welcome to join! Turn in registration by June 14; students cannot go unless a registration form has been filled out and signed by parents. The cost will be $80, which covers transportation and admission (water park included, so bring your swimsuit and towel!). Students are on their own for food and anything extra they want to buy. There will be a “brown bag” lunch option, for an additional $5; you can choose a lunch option on the registration form. We are also looking for some adults to come along as well, so contact Elise, (email@example.com or 336-2942, ext. 35) if you want to come along!
