Meals from the Heart Event! You’re invited to OSLC’s fourth annual meal packing event on Saturday, November 3, from 4 – 6 pm. The Evangelism and Mission & Outreach Committees are partnering with Meals from the Heart to pack meals to feed struggling families in Minnesota and Eastern Wisconsin. Thanks to subsidies from the OSLC Mission & Outreach Committee, the fee is reduced to $10 per person, which covers food supply and packing material costs. We are looking for 80 volunteers this year. Children are welcome to participate. Any kids under age 11 must be accompanied by an adult. Sign up and drop your payment in the Drop Box at the Welcome Desk by Sunday, October 28.
Supper 7 is a casual supper with 5-7 friends that get together for 3 or 4 meals throughout the year. It is a way to meet new friends from our congregation over a meal and conversation. It is open to singles and couples. The meal is pot luck with everyone contributing to the meal. If your group would rather meet in a restaurant with each participant paying for their own meal, that works too. Sign-up at the Welcome Desk. Questions? Contact Sandy Fabio at 651-439-9773 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Sign up will close TODAY!
Valley Outreach Undie Campaign! Valley Outreach is in need of new, in-the-package socks and underwear for men and women. Boxers are a favorite and always get snagged before the briefs. Last year, Valley Outreach received more than 6,800 items through this event. This year, they are on track to give out 15,000 pairs of socks and underwear! It’s a contest again this year! A receptacle will be placed in the Gathering Area for OSLC members to drop off their donations. Final day to drop off items at OSLC will be October 14. Thank you!
