O God of justice and love, you illumine our way through life with the words of your Son. Give us the light we need, and awaken us to the needs of others, through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. Amen.
13But we do not want you to be uninformed, brothers and sisters, about those who have died, so that you may not grieve as others do who have no hope. 14For since we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so, through Jesus, God will bring with him those who have died. 15For this we declare to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will by no means precede those who have died. 16For the Lord himself, with a cry of command, with the archangel's call and with the sound of God's trumpet, will descend from heaven, and the dead in Christ will rise first. 17Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up in the clouds together with them to meet the Lord in the air; and so we will be with the Lord forever. 18Therefore encourage one another with these words.
[Jesus said to the disciples:]
Then the kingdom of heaven will be like this. Ten bridesmaids took their lamps and went to meet the bridegroom.
2Five of them were foolish, and five were wise.
3When the foolish took their lamps, they took no oil with them;
4but the wise took flasks of oil with their lamps.
5As the bridegroom was delayed, all of them became drowsy and slept.
6But at midnight there was a shout,
Look! Here is the bridegroom! Come out to meet him.
7Then all those bridesmaids got up and trimmed their lamps.
8The foolish said to the wise,
Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.
9But the wise replied,
No! there will not be enough for you and for us; you had better go to the dealers and buy some for yourselves.
10And while they went to buy it, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went with him into the wedding banquet; and the door was shut.
11Later the other bridesmaids came also, saying,
Lord, lord, open to us.
12But he replied,
Truly I tell you, I do not know you.
13Keep awake therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour.
P: The Gospel of the Lord.
C: Praise to you, O Christ.
P: Lord, in your mercy,
C: hear our prayer.

The fellowship hall will be closed for renovations beginning Monday, November 9 through Friday, November 20. Please redirect any activities around this work.
Stretch & Pray will not meet today or next week (11/15) due to the ongoing renovations to the fellowship hall.
The OSLC Mission Committee will be hosting an American Red Cross Blood Drive on Saturday, November 21 from 8 a.m. until 12 noon. The blood drive will be located in the fellowship hall.
For a limited time, the American Red Cross will test all blood, platelet, and plasma donations for COVID-19 antibodies as an additional health service. This testing may provide critical insight into whether donors may have possibly been exposed to this coronavirus. The Red Cross is committed to helping others in meaningful ways during this pandemic. This is not a test to diagnose COVID-19. The results of your antibody test will be available by logging in to your Blood Donor account on the Blood Donor App or online about 7 to 10 days after your donation. More information can be found on the church website.
Did you know that memorials do not automatically go to the Charitable Trust? Only by designating the "Charitable Trust" as the recipient is the donation added to the fund for future OSLC needs.
