Ministries for all ages!

No matter your age, there's a ministry for you!  Check out what we have to offer.  We've got most of them listed below - the rest can be found at the church or in the Ministry Booklet on our Resources Page.  Come join us this Sunday and see how you can get involved!

Children

Do you have a passion for the children of our church family? This is a great place to serve either by being a part of the leadership team or helping out with Sunday School and OSKids (Wednesday Evening Children’s Ministry Program) curriculums, Vacation Bible School, Christmas programs, and other events throughout the year. We are always looking for adults who are willing to serve in this ministry, whether it's being a helping hand, teacher, or even someone to help lead crafts. Our volunteers are willing to invest their lives in the lives of the children of our church family…and we love them for it!

  • The nursery is staffed during the 9:30a service (from September to May when Sunday School is offered).


    The purpose of the Nursery Ministry is to provide a welcoming and nurturing atmosphere for the children of our members and visitors, which honors the Lord and supports the parents in the care of their children, in a consistently safe, clean and wholesome environment through a caring volunteer nursery staff. 


    If you are interested in serving in the Nursery, please contact Aunnee Trampe at: childrensministry.oslc@gmail.com

  • Classes meet on Sunday mornings from 9:30-10:30a from September to May. 


    The Sunday School program at OSLC is designed to supplement the faith development of children age 4 through grade 8 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 everyday life.


    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.

  • OSKids meets on Wednesday nights from 6:00-7:30p from September to May (time switches to 6:00-7:00p during Advent/Lent accommodating 7:00p worship services).


    Wednesday nights, kids ages 4 to Grade 5 are invited to join us for an evening packed with fun activities centered around the Gospel. Kids will be immersed in the Gospel through the stories from Genesis to Revelation. We want kids to know the Bible is not just a collection of stories, but one unified story of redemption through Jesus Christ! Kids are signed in by an adult at registration in the Great Room and then start their Wednesday night in singing some praise songs, and occasionally a special message. Afterwards we watch a short video on the Bible story as it connects with Jesus and do a craft based on the lesson. And then have a discussion about it. ALL kids are welcome to stay until 7:30 enjoying games, play, and service. We hope you join us!

  • Each June we host an outreach to the children of the community through our Vacation Bible School program. For 5 days (Sunday through Thursday evenings), 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 from 5:30-6:00p. Then from 6:00-8:30p the children experience a high energy opening, crafts, games, and bible lessons before coming together once more for an exciting closing.

    This year's Vacation Bible School is called "Rocky Railway" and will be from June 6-10, 2021. CLICK HERE for more information and to register.

Youth

  • 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; serve as a Barnabas Buddy to support and encourage a confirmation student, and pray for youth and adults participating in confirmation.


    OSLC Confirmation Ministries provide dynamic instruction in the Christian faith for youth, grades 7-8. Class time (Wednesdays from 6:00-7:30p September-May), servant event opportunities, and small group experiences lead toward the rite of confirmation and adult membership in the OSLC church family.

  • Youth group is open for youth in grades 9 through 12. We have weekly hang outs on Wednesday nights.  We use this time to catch up and to tackle tough questions about life and faith. The primary purpose is “to ignite, nurture and equip Christ-centered youth.”


    Throughout the year, there are various events to be involved in, from serving Easter breakfast to pizza sales for our annual ski trip, state level youth gatherings to canoe trips and lock-ins.

  • Typically each summer, youth from our church participate in a Week of Hope

    It is a week of serving God’s people and growing in faith through an experience like no other.

  • Every 3 Years, OSLC sends youth and chaperoning adults to the LCMS National Youth Gathering. This event has regularly been an extremely significant point in the faith development of young people in the LCMS.  Workshops on real-life topics, crazy games and activities, and massive worship events.  OSLC sent a group of youth and adults to chaperone and take the whole experience in.  Contact Pastor Brian Doel if you have any questions or are interesting in attending an LCMS Youth Gathering in the future. The next one is scheduled for July 9-13, 2022 in Houston Texas.
