Renewed for All Seasons

 

Oslc AltarWe are daily renewed by God’s generosity and grace, and we seek to live into that renewal as a community of faith. With expectant hope, we see the opportunities that God has put before us and boldly walk with Jesus.

Excited by the new opportunities and rooted in our vision
“To be a vibrant, caring congregation that brings God’s love to the community. We seek to be a Spirit filled church where all ages build relationships, worship, learn, serve and play,”
we have selected three initiatives, below, that move us in the future. This ministry ahead is ours and now is the time for us to be a part of God’s work. The work needs our prayers, our participation, and our dollars. Together we ensure the effectiveness of these ministries. Together we participate in God’s renewal of our lives, the church, and the world!
 
“To be a spirit-filled community, reaching out and caring for all.”  – OSLC Mission
 

Generosity Goal

To grow in generosity by $27,000 or more in new offerings throughout 2020.
 
To truly reach out and care for all in this manner, Our Saviour’s Lutheran Church seeks to deepen and strengthen our ongoing ministries as well as expand our vision to new opportunities to serve our neighborhood, broader community and world.
 
Our goal is to grow in our generosity and giving at OSLC by $27,000 ($519/Week) or more in new offerings throughout 2020. We are excited to share with you how those additional gifts will be invested.
 

Chartering a Scout TroopChartering a Scout Troop

OSLC has been invited to serve as the charter of a local scout group. This is a meaningful way to partner and reach out to the community around us:
  • The troop will bring new families into our building each week, increasing our visibility in the community.
  • We will accompany families with children and youth through critical parenting years.
  • The troop will expand our experience of community at OSLC.
 

Adding a PlaygroundAdding a Playground

$2,000 ($38/week – total cost over three years $30,000) 
Currently, we do not provide a safe, accessible and engaging outdoor space for children and families in our ministries or our neighborhood. The addition of a playground will:
  • Enhance our Family Promise experience.
  • Accommodate children of all abilities.
  • Neighborhood families will have an additional gathering area.
  • A playground signals to new worshipers that we value all ages being together.
 

A "Warm" WelcomeA “Warm” Welcome

$12,000 ($231/week)
Our furnaces are over 30 years old and with our commitment to hospitality in the community, we need to address the furnaces before they stop working and need to be replaced. Replacing the furnaces will provide:
  • Vital continuity and care to our partnering organization.
  • Safety of all who enter our building at OSLC.
  • Warmth in the colder months!
 
These three ministries will require a significant portion of our increase of giving. Thank you for your generosity and commitment to Our Saviour’s Lutheran Church. We invite you to pray for our congregation’s ministry and mission together with God in this time and place. Please prayerfully consider your offering for the coming year.
