Outreach to India

Our Saviour’s is partnering with one of our young people in December to provide help in India. Through working on a senior project to assist an orphange in India, a student from OSELC learned lepers in India have a great need for gauze and antibiotic ointment.image

Through the month of December, OSELC is collecting gauze, ointment and/or money ($20) for medical kits to aid a village in India dealing with leprosy. The material or money can be left at OSELC.

For more information or to help, call 837-8055 or 882-1898.

Doubly thankful

On Sunday, Nov. 23, OSELC will share in two opportunities to express gratitude during this season of thanksgiving.

After worship service that morning, WELCA members will host a Thanksgiving luncheon at OSELC.

Then at 6 p.m. that Sunday evening OSELC will participate in the annual community Thanksgiving service at the Sunnyside High School auditorium.

All are welcome to join us that day in sharing the spirit of Thanksgiving!
