STEPHEN MINISTRY NEEDS YOUR HELP!

OSL is a Stephen Ministry congregation. Even if you are not a Stephen leader or a Stephen minister, you can play an important role in our Stephen Ministry program. Stephen ministers need your prayerful support as they confidentially meet with their care receivers every week.

If you see a friend, coworker, neighbor, relative or someone else who could use some extra Christian care, tell that person about our Stephen Ministry and get permission to refer him or her to Pastor Fibelkorn (836-9600), Linda Guttman (255-7759), or Linda Anderson (238-0627).
