Faith Formation Notes
Thank you to the OSL Children’s group, who packed 215 lunches in one hour at Lunch Is Served! (See photo.) One young one asked, “Are you sure there is going to be enough lunches for everyone?” There was heart behind the work!
OSL Youth and Family Night at Wild Water West will be on August 15, from 4:00 to 8:00. There will be a live DJ, prize giveaways, and fun in the sun at a special price: Over 48 inches tall, $7.50 plus tax; under 48 inches and seniors (60 and older), $4 plus tax; and age two and younger, free. Children in grade five and younger must have a parent or caring adult present. If you plan to drop off your 6th- through 12th-graders and want them to check in/out with John, contact him in advance: firstname.lastname@example.org. John, Melissa, and Pr. Sami are looking forward to seeing you there!
Welcome to Church, a Milestone for two-year-olds, will be held on August 19, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Your family will enjoy a kid-friendly lunch in The Gathering Place, and then together you will set out on a scavenger hunt, collecting sticks to complete a puzzle at each stop. At each location, a photographer will take a picture of your child and, when we are all done, these will be made into personalized books for your family to enjoy and read together. Sign up through the link Melissa sent via email, or email her (email@example.com) to let her know how many in your family will be attending and your two-year-old’s name. The books will be presented in 8:45 a.m. Celebrate worship on August 26, at which time there will be blessing.
It’s time to sign up for 2018–2019 Frolic and Sunday and Wednesday school! Register your child each year (like in the school district), to make sure OSL’s contact information is up-to-date and your child’s grade placement is correct. You may register your children via oslchurch.com/children. Kick-Off Sunday will be September 9, and Wednesday programming begins September 12.
