Instruments Needed
This year OSLS has a large number of students interested in starting a band instrument. OSLS owns some instruments that students may borrow, but the school could use more. Do you have a clarinet that’s been sitting in the back of a closet? Maybe your trumpet’s gathered dust for years in the basement? Your old high school flute could make music again in the hands of a fifth grader. Please consider donating your unused band instruments to the school. Contact Mrs. Roberts if you have any questions.

Theology on Tap
The next get together will be next Sunday, September 28 from 6 to 8 pm at the Fleming’s house. We’ll be discussing chapter one of Broken: 7 Rules that Every Christian Ought to Break as Often as Possible. Copies of the book are available from Pastor or the Church/School office. Theology on Tap is for college and career age folk (20’s & 30’s) interested in a more relaxed and engaging discussion and get together.

Lutheran World Relief
LWR is again collecting new wrapped bars of soap to distribute to people in need. Bath bar size is especially appreciated. Clean hands and bodies make life healthier and more comfortable. Basins are in the fellowship hall. Please place your donations there.

2014 Lutherans For Life National Conference – Matters of the Heart
October 24 and 25 at St. Matthew Lutheran Church, Grand Rapids, MI. The conference offers great speakers, wonderful workshops, and life-affirming fellowship! LFL’s aim is to help people better understand that the life issues are not political issues, but spiritual issues that have been politicized. We have what it takes to address Matters of the Heart—the Gospel of Jesus! We want people to see the connection between this message of forgiveness and hope and issues like abortion and assisted suicide.
