Christmas will be here before we know it and we need your help for a very important cause to spread some holiday cheer! This year, Our Saviour is sponsoring 30 families for the local nonprofit “Christmas for Moore,” which provides clothing, food, housewares, toys and other items to families in need. With your help and through Thrivent, OSLC will provide Christmas wreaths to each of our sponsored families.
Who can help? EVERYONE.
How can you help? It’s easy and FUN. Search through your Christmas decorations for some gently used items you would like to donate, or head to the store and buy some new things. Anything you can offer is greatly appreciated. Some suggested items include ornaments, ribbon, bows, garland, and artificial flowers. Beginning this Sunday, there will be a donation box located under the mailboxes. For information on how to donate materials, please see or email Frances Clayton, Heather Lussier, Katie Van O'Linda, or Peggy Benson.
On Sunday, December 2 we’ll gather in the Fellowship Hall. We will be making the wreaths from 9:00 am -10:15 am, breakfast will be served beforehand at 8:45 am. No crafting experience required! If you have glue guns, please bring them.
Christian Education Classes on Sunday, December 2nd, will NOT be canceled. Rather, we will be putting our faith formation into action! After all, Jesus commissions us to share the good news with others, and to make disciples. For this reason, throughout the year, our Sunday School curriculum will be augmented with opportunities to serve, and to educate our young people about ways in which we might share His good news with our community. After all, it is in the giving that makes us who we are. On December 2nd, students from ALL classes, and anyone else from OSLC who would like to join the effort, will be making Christmas wreaths to be given to the 30+ families being served through Christmas for Moore County.
Let us go and serve the Lord!
