66 people (including 12 kids!) joined us for a wonderful “island” evening! Each ministry team did a wonderful job decorating their booth and all the food was fantastic! We had a hula hoop contest, decorated sailor hats, did the limbo, and played great games. Thank you to everyone who made food, set the scene with decorations and costumes, and joined in the fun!

Mardi Gras – Mon. Jan. 26

We hope you’ll join us at OSLC’s annual Mardi Gras celebration Monday, January 26 from 5:30-7:00 pm. There will be fun games, activities, and lots of great food as each ministry team will be preparing a table of delicious treats to share.

This year’s theme is “Gilligan’s Island”, so come dressed with a tropical flair and escape the frigid weather outside in the warmth of this wonderful community.

Last year the Missions Committee won the prize for the best decorated food booth!
