Bible Reading Plan – The Bible in a Year
This year our congregation is reading through the Bible in a year. You can start anytime with the reading plan in the church lobby or on our website. You can also chose a custom reading plan from the YouVersion Bible app, such as the Reformation Bible Reading Plan.
Sermon Study Guides
Each week, the pastors at OSL write a discussion guide based on the sermon text that can be used as an individual or small group reflection. This is posted online each week under “Faith Resources”. Hard copies are available upon request from the church office 517.882.8665.
Small Group Ministry
The best way to experience Christian community is in a small group. Encouragement, prayer, care, and growth happen when Christians regularly get together to talk about our faith. To join a small group, contact Dave Wright at firstname.lastname@example.org.
