2020 Report
Evangelism took a curious turn in 2019.  The COVID crisis brought visitation to almost a complete stop after a several week shut down of all joint worship and meetings in the Spring.   After services resumed in the Summer and into the rest of the year, visitors were a rarity.   Funds were not expended on either the spring or winter neighborhood mailers.   However, online evangelism developed into its own in 2020.  OSLC added online live feed worship, audio sermon listening, and an ever-expanding YouTube channel for recorded worship and “Daily Prayer with Pastor Lance.”  Upgrades to the sanctuary audio system reflect that OSLC is eager to expand this new direction of proclaiming the Good News (evangelism).
