OMG YOUTH AND FAMILY EVENTS
This summer has been busy with wonderful family events, such as the Pentecost Celebration & Bike Blessing, the Laurentian Hog Roast & fundraiser to benefit the Northland Chapter of Habitat for Humanity, Vacation Bible School that included at least 4 area churches, and the Minnesota Twins Game trip to Minneapolis August 7th!
We have a community outreach opportunity if you would like to join us for the Welcome Picnic August 17th for the new and returning students of Mesabi Range College. There will be food served from 12:30-1:30pm, various lawn games, and time to meet students and athletes, community leaders, Pastors, and College Staff. Volunteering for set-up, food and clean-up is welcomed, and bringing dessert bars will also be appreciated.
There are 2 upcoming concerts you & your family can enjoy: Concert in the Courtyard, Aug. 21st 6:30pm @ Messiah Lutheran (to help benefit the Make-It-Mondays Program), and the popular Northern Lights Chamber Music Concert Aug. 23rd, 7pm @ Gethsemane Lutheran Church (students from the Northern Lights Institute who attend summer music camp will be performing with accomplished Chamber musicians).
This fall, we will kick off the 2019-2020 School Year with Rally Sunday, September 8th! Join us for the blessing of students, school workers and teachers during Worship, and for fellowship, fun and treats after the service on the grounds of OSLC, rain or shine! There will be a Toy Story themed Bouncy House for the kids in our backyard area, different game tables, and refreshments & coffee for adults to enjoy as well.
Fall will start off with Make-it-Mondays, Confirmation classes and Faith Finders on Wednesdays as well. There are youth ministry registration slips on our kiosk in the Narthex for registering- and you can let Pastor Erik know that you are interested in having your children attend.
Confirmation & Reformation Sunday will be October 27th this year. This will include two joint OMG services, held at Gethsemane Lutheran Church. NO SERVICES WILL BE HELD @ OSLC OR MESSIAH LUTHERAN THAT DAY! We will celebrate Confirmation Students with a joined choir and special music and fellowship afterwards.
