It’s time to get your Viking on!
No, not those guys in purple and white, but the real ones as Minot prepares to celebrate Scandinavian heritage through Norsk Høstfest!
Every year, OSLC staffs the Scandi Kitchen, Uffda Salads, and Baroness of Beef with volunteers. From your volunteered hours, the ministries of OSLC are benefited. Last year, over $7,000 was given to OSLC: $920 for the Adult Mission Team; $1000 to LHLH; $1100 to General Fund; and the balance to individual youth accounts and youth ministry for various youth events throughout the year.
We need your help again this year! Look for the sign up table in the Fellowship Hall for opportunities to serve the community and build friendships with other members of OSLC. The work is easy, the fun is immense!
(that’s “thank you” if your Norwegian isn’t up to par!)

Oh, no! He didn’t really say that? What in the world did Jesus mean when He said …?
No one challenges us like Jesus! His words jolt us to see our world our God and ourselves in new ways!

There was a shepherd who had a beautiful pasture, a garden, for his sheep. Everything those sheep needed they had. There was thick, lush green grass that provided the softest bed on which to lie down and rest. Those same green grasses on which they slept also provided the very best of food. The waters gently flowed off the high mountain where the shepherd lived with the purest waters in which the sheep could sip cool drinks of refreshing water. The sheep could easily hear the shepherd’s voice and gladly followed the shepherd wherever he went because he was their shepherd. He wanted nothing but the absolute best for them and when the sheep where with the shepherd, it was truly good. The shepherd could even walk the sheep through the dark and dangerous valleys where evil lay all around, with safety, things were that good. Everything was right; everything was good — very good.
But sheep are stupid and dumb. They are the epitome of Attention Deficit Disorder, wandering here and there.
