Outreach

As we find faith in our hearts and lives by the grace of God, we also grow in desire and ability to love and serve God and others. A huge part of our mission as a community is expecting people to live their faith for God and others!

Jesus asks us to reach out to others and welcome them.
We invite you to worsip with us this Sunday and find your home at OSLC.

God’s work. Our Hands
 

“God’s work. Our hands.” Sunday is an opportunity to celebrate who we are as the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America – one church, freed in Christ to serve and love our neighbor.

This year we along with other Southern Tier Lutheran Churches met at the Discovery Center, Binghamton to put “Our Hands” to work on Sunday September 17th at 12:30 PM.  

This service activity offers an opportunity for us to explore one of our most basic convictions as Lutherans: that all of life in Jesus Christ – every act of service, in every daily calling, in every corner of life – flows freely from a living, daring confidence in God’s grace.

Join us in this work to make our community a better place.
