Girl’s Night Out: Yogadevotion – Epiphany, The Light , The Dark and Everything in Between.
When: Friday, January 10, 2020
Time: 6:30 – 8:00 pm
Location: OSLC Gathering Area
Fee: $5.00 Donation
Come join us for an evening of devotion and insight as we practice the fastest growing form of yoga for everyone – chair yoga. Cindy Senarighi of White Bear Lake is an ordained ELCA pastor and founder of Yogadevotion, a company with a mission to “share God’s presence and love through the practice of yoga.” She will share how yoga, when properly understood, goes beyond the physical to engage all we are: body, mind and spirit. Yoga is about the breath. And, when we connect the breath with the body in our devotional time, it becomes a God breathed experience of God’s Promised Presence. We will conclude our evening with time to share in fellowship with one another. RSVP to the church office or 651-439-5704.

Final push to help us close our budget gap! Giving has come on strong during the last two weeks of the year. For those who have contributed, thank you for your generosity. As of this printing, we don’t know the final offering totals from Christmas, but we are still anticipating a small budget shortfall. We ask for your help for this final end of year push so that we can fill our budget gap and go into an exciting 2020 strong!
