Letter from the Vice Chairman

Good day everyone! I write you today as your Vice Chairman. It is my responsibility to organize the budget and nominating committees to help our congregation prepare for 2018 and beyond. We will be having the budget committee meeting on Thursday September 28th at 7pm to discuss our financial needs, obligations, and challenges for 2018. The Nominating committee meeting is on Tuesday September 26th at 8pm to discuss and look at our many council members several who are up for election yearly. If you have any suggestions for either of these meetings please let me know so I can bring it up at the appropriate meeting. The results of these meetings will be presented at the October voters meeting on October 18th at 7:30pm here at OSL Church. The final approval of the budget and slate of officers will take place at the November voters meeting on November 15th at 7:30pm at OSL Church. All members of our congregation are welcome/encouraged to attend either/all of these meetings. Below are copies of the 2017 budget and slate of officers to review.

I would also like to take this opportunity to give a HUGE THANK YOU to two members of our council who have decided to retire! Those are Herb Pederson who has been our Chairman for many, many years and has dedicated many hours to benefit our congregation and Natalie Sabol who has served on the Board of Education for several years helping with our youth, teaching Sunday School, music, VBS, and more! THANK YOU BOTH very much for your hard work and dedication here at OSL Church. We pray even though you won’t be an official member of our council in 2018 that we will still see you working behind the scenes with our many activities here at OSL doing what you do best “Serving and Praising our Risen Savior!”

Thank you for your time,

Vice Chairman Jeremiah Schutt 507-525-3257 or jeremiah_schutt@yahoo.com
