Compassionate God, you gather the whole universe into your radiant presence and continually reveal your Son as our Savior. Bring wholeness to all that is broken and speak truth to us in our confusion, that all creation will see and know your Son, Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. Amen.
21[Jesus and his disciples] went to Capernaum; and when the sabbath came, he entered the synagogue and taught.
22They were astounded at his teaching, for he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.
23Just then there was in their synagogue a man with an unclean spirit,
24and he cried out,
What have you to do with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are, the Holy One of God.
25But Jesus rebuked him, saying,
Be silent, and come out of him!
26And the unclean spirit, convulsing him and crying with a loud voice, came out of him.
27They were all amazed, and they kept on asking one another,
What is this? A new teaching—with authority! He commands even the unclean spirits, and they obey him.
28At once his fame began to spread throughout the surrounding region of Galilee.
P: The Gospel of the Lord.
C: Praise to you, O Christ.
P: Lord, in your mercy,
C: hear our prayer.
On February 14, the last Sunday before Lent and the day we recognize those close to our hearts, OSLC will recognize Kent Sunderland and Lisa Alvis for 30 years of service each! We ask that you help us celebrate the occasion with a card shower. Please send cards to Kent and Lisa in care of the church office, and we will present them collectively at that time.
The Mission Committee has been contacted by Safe Harbor (the Salvation Army) to say that they are in need of child-size coats. If anyone has any that are new or gently used and clean, please drop them at the church, and someone from the Mission Committee will make sure they get to Safe Harbor.
The OSLC Mission Committee will be hosting an American Red Cross Blood Drive on Saturday, February 6 from 8 a.m. until 12 noon. The blood drive will be located in the fellowship hall. More information can be found on the church website.
The Mission Committee will be preparing and serving dinner at Safe Harbor on Sunday, February 7. Please contact Rob Mahnke if you are interested in helping.
The Church Council voted at last month's meeting to delay the 2021 Annual Meeting, normally held at the end of January, until such a time when, based on CDC guidelines, the Council feels it is safe to hold the meeting. Until that time, current Council members will continue in their roles, and the church will operate on an extension of the current year's budget. Please talk to a Council member if you have concerns about this.
The Mission committee is continuing to collect food that will be shared between Safe Harbor and the Midwest Food Bank. We are collecting the following items:
There is a box just inside the church entrance where you can deposit items. Please do not take items to Megan or Pastor Henrick's office.
