David & Goliath: Who is the Bully?

Check out the 2014 OSLC Sunday School Play, David & Goliath: Who is the Bully? Each year our Grades 1-3 Sunday School classes take several months to write a play together. Under the guidance of their teachers (Cheryl Hauser & Kristina Steffen), they select a biblical story and connect it to themes from their own lives. Watch the video, and feel free to share it with friends!

Survey for Families with Young Children

The Christian Education committee is administering this survey of young families as part of our efforts to further OSLC’s mission to nurture faith and partner with families. We are looking for insights that will help us evaluate particular ministries (like Sunday School and Early Childhood Education) and that will inform our overall understanding of how we engage families.

OSLC 2013 Advent Devotional

Each year at OSLC, we create an Advent devotional. This family-friendly resource is given out as the cover of our worship folder each week in Advent. The interior portion is designed for use with children and youth, and the back page has a devotional offering geared towards adults. In 2013, we focus on the first chapter of the Gospel of John discovering the ways that in Jesus God gives us the gifts of life, light, belonging and grace.
