You may bring your donated baked goods to Messiah Lutheran on Saturday, Oct. 26th between 1-5pm to help them out for the sale if you like, or just go there Sunday to purchase food to help them raise funds for their June Missions trip!
Wreath Sale: Starting Nov. 3rd, you may order/reserve a handcrafted Christmas Wreath for $20.00. These are locally harvested Balsam Fir wreaths that are larger for your front door, garage or fence. They are a beautiful and sought after item here at OSLC. You may reserve the wreaths on Sundays, Nov. 3rd, 10th, 17th and 24th. They will be ready to be picked up Dec. 1st!
