Church Council

The OSLC Church Council is elected by the congregation and, in partnership with the OSLC Pastor and Staff, leads the congregation in many ways. Meeting monthly, the council provides oversight for the congregation’s ministries, property, finances, and long term plans. Provided are the monthly Council Minutes.
Each council member volunteers to be involved in a specific ministry area.  Please call the church office at 801-278-1412 if you would like a Council member to get in touch with you.
