Winter Clothing Appeal – Although we are still enjoying fall weather, winter will be upon us before we know it. For many of the international residents who call OMSC home this year, the weather is already cooler than their climates at home. With 28 adults and 16 children in residence this year, we do not currently have enough winter clothing to go around. How can we help? By donating new or gently used winter coats, sweaters, hats, gloves, scarves, or money to purchase these items. Donations should be delivered prior to October 17th and OMSC will distribute winter clothing to the residents in the last two weeks of October. Please see Pastor Barbara for more information.
Coffee Hour - will be hosted by group John on Sunday, October 1, 2018. Please see Megan Camp for details.
