God wants you to take your next step spiritually. That could mean getting baptized, committing to digging into the Bible each day, discovering how God wants to use you to help others, or just learning more about God’s plan for your life. OSLC’s 4M classes are all about those next steps. Click here to learn more!
The Sunday School program at OSLC is designed to supplement the faith development of children age 4 through grade 12 that is being done by their parents. We seek to find the best age-appropriate lessons that are available to instruct your child(ren) about Jesus Christ as their personal Savior, the history of God in the lives of humanity (the Bible’s big story), and how that is lived out in every day life.
Classes meet on Sunday mornings from September to May. Start time is at 9:45 am in the Great Room with a large group opening before heading to smaller classes that last until 10:45 am.

We are always looking for adults who are willing to serve in this ministry, whether helping to fill in for regular teachers who just need a morning off or as a classroom assistant, to full-time volunteer teachers who are willing to invest their lives in the lives of the children of our church family.
Kids For Christ (KFC)
Our Wednesday evening education program for age 4 to grade 6 is called Kids For Christ or KFC. The lessons are different from Sunday School. Wednesday nights the program is a little more crazy and a little more relaxed as we continue to teach the children of our church family about the love of God in Jesus. Classes gather at 6:00 pm in the sanctuary for an opening time of worship and a quick devotional before heading to their classrooms for deeper instruction. There are also snacks and games as part of KFC. We wrap up by 7:30 pm. On the first and third Wednesday of each month, we offer a free-will meal from 5:30 to 6:00 pm to help busy parents out.

Board of Education
Do you have a passion for the children of our church family? This is a great place to serve as part of the leadership team that plans our Sunday School and KFC (Kids For Christ) curriculums, our June Vacation Bible School program, and other events throughout the year. The board meets the second Monday of each month at 6:30 pm for planning and evaluation.
The mission of confirmation is to provide the youth of OSLC with a meaningful Christian education experience, touching their hearts with the person of Jesus Christ. Members of the Confirmation Team serve as confirmation teachers; serve as small group guides; serve as classroom aides; serve as servant event coordinators; share their stories of faith with the youth; and pray for youth and adults participating in confirmation.

Small Group Ministries
Why do we encourage you to join a small group? Because you will build life-supporting friendships and meet others from OSLC; give and receive love and encouragement; pray and be prayed for; grow in your faith and discover ways to become more like Christ; and serve others in your group, in the congregation, and in the community.
One of our small group formats is called Transformation Triangles. This is a great way to get started because you can just get together with two other friends and begin meeting right away. It’s simple and transformational!
You may join an already established small group, or start one of your own. Contact Bonnie Rennich at 701.852.6404 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
20 Something Bible Study
Vacation Bible School
Each June we host an outreach to the children of the community through our Vacation Bible School program. For this week, we transform our church to a different theme to draw them into hearing and experiencing the Good News of Jesus as their Lord and Savior. We offer a free meal to help busy parents for the children and the parents each evening. Then the children experience a high energy opening, crafts, games, and bible lessons before coming together once more for an exciting closing. Our VBS program is not what you grew up with – YOU’VE GOT TO COME CHECK IT OUT!
