Sunday Morning Adult Class (Sundays, 9:45-10:45 a.m., OSLC Library)
Each Sunday morning, an adult class is offered at OSLC. These classes are led by both pastors and lay leaders and are most often studies of various portions of the Bible. The atmosphere is always one of open invitation and conversation, and learners are encouraged to bring their questions and interests to the table. For information on our current study, check the Focus newsletter or contact Pastor Ryan (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Thursday Morning Bible Study (Thursdays, 10:00-11:30 a.m., OSLC Library)
Each Thursday morning, Pastor Thomas leads a Bible study at OSLC. In addition to the biblical material itself, the class often makes use of an additional study resource such as a biblical commentary to help learners gain insight. For information on our current study, check the Focus newsletter or contact Pastor Thomas (email@example.com).
A Deeper Well (last Tuesday of each month, 8:00 p.m., Sunset Ale House)
A Deeper Well is a time to talk about faith and life and experience some refreshment for both body and soul. It is a great place to get to know others in the congregation and to try out being the Church outside of the church building. There is no one age group or type of person that comes, though our setting suggests that it is for those 21 and over. We meet at Sunset Ale House on Front Street (20 Front Street, next to Flying Pie Pizzeria and Front Street Market) on the last Tuesday of each month. If you have questions, contact Pastor Ryan (firstname.lastname@example.org).
OSLC Book Club (third Monday of select months, 7:30 p.m., Pickering Place Barnes & Noble)
As the name suggests, this group gathers to discuss a book. It is another great place to get to know others in the congregation. For information on dates and current book selections, check the Focus newsletter or contact Marilyn Larson (email@example.com).
Hope and Faith Circles (monthly in-home gatherings)
The Hope and Faith Circles are monthly gatherings of women in the congregation. They are led and hosted by individuals in the congregation. For information on dates, times, and current studies, check the Focus newsletter or contact Sandy Aldworth (Hope Circle, firstname.lastname@example.org) or Rita Hansen (Faith Circle, email@example.com).
Mid-Life Spirituality Group (monthly in-home gatherings, first and third Sundays, 7:00-9:00 p.m.)
The term “mid-life” is open to interpretation, but this group isn’t too concerned with anything too rigid or narrow. If you consider yourself to be in the middle portion of your life, then you are a candidate for this group. Each month, “mid-lifers” gather to discuss a book they are reading on spirituality. For information on dates and the current book, check the Focus newsletter or contact Marilyn Larson (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Believe it or not, this is only a partial listing of opportunities for you to get involved, for more information check the Focus newsletter.
