This will take the place of our Lefsa sale in July, and Bake Sale and Bazaar that use to be held in November. Instead of making lefsa, baking goodies and making craft items, we will be receiving cash donations. All donations will be appreciated by many who benefit from our December distributions to
Missions at the end of each year. Envelopes marked “WELCA NO BAKE BAKE SALE” will be available in the Fellowship Hall for your convenience. You may place your envelope in the offering plate or you may send your donation to the church, OSLC WELCA, 505 S. Wind St., Flandreau, SD 57028. If writing out a check, please make it out to “OSLC WELCA” also please write on the check NO BAKE BAKE SALE. Thank you for your donation!
ONLINE STREAMING UPDATE: FaceBook has changed their regulations yet again, making it more difficult for congregations to live stream their services. We are looking into better options, but for the time being, please watch on our YouTube live stream. You can find this by going to our church website, www.oslcflandreau.org, look in the blue box with live stream information and click on the black OSLC Flandreau YouTube box. Stay tuned for more information.

OSLC HAS MEALS ON WHEELS IN NOVEMBER! Please sign up in the Fellowship Hall or let the office know when you can help.:)
Sound/video system operators needed IMMEDIATELY: We are in desperate need of individuals/couples who will run the system. It is much easier than you think!! A training session is available; an instruction sheet leads you through every step. And we have mentors to sit beside you until you are comfortable. WE CAN’T project the service without someone running the computer. Let Jeremy, Becky Sayler, or Pastor Alan know of your interest. Duties would be once a month or less.
