Consecration Sunday

consec2cConsecration Sunday is October 8th. Every year, the second Sunday of October, the faith family of OSLC sets aside a special Sunday to thank God for his daily provision and to publically bring to the altar of our Lord our next year’s offering pledge. We do not make this commitment because the church needs to pay its bills, for we know full well that God will take care of our need. Instead, we deliberately set aside a portion of our income so that we can be intentional givers rather than accidental givers. You and I are baptized children of God, saved by His grace, freed to serve Him in daily life and called to a commitment in Christ Jesus as Lord and Savior. Consecration Sunday is a Stewardship Sunday. Christian stewardship is the free and joyous activity of the child of God, and God’s family the church, in managing all of life and life’s blessings/resources, for God’s purposes. This October newsletter includes a commitment card and additional information to help you prayerfully consider making an offering pledge for the year 2018. If you have questions please contact Pam, our office manager, Pastor Doug or a stewardship committee member, Dan Jorgensen, Dan Madsen, Dan Smith, Frank Olsen, Nancy Olsen, & Matt Heller.
