“Living Our Mission” Presentations THIS Sunday
Join Pastor Krueger on Sunday, THIS Sunday as he shares information on OSLC’s upcoming building and ministry expansion options. A committee of OSLC leaders has been working since October to wrestle with parking lot, space, classroom, and new ministry ideas that will direct our congregation into the future. With the community of Minot set to double in population by 2020 these expansion options become exciting times for OSLC ministries to be on the leading edge of the local mission field. There will be two presentations. One at 9:45 AM and then one repeated at 12:10 PM. Both will take place in the Great Room. Pick the one that works for you and make plans to attend as we consider ways to improve ministry and touch hearts and lives in ever deepening ways with the transformational love of Jesus Christ.
