Adult Ministries (for women and men)
New Age Connection
New Age Connection is a group for all adults who are approaching or in the midst of a new age of life (whether it be the 2nd or 3rd phase) and are looking forward to what’s to come! Join us for off-site activities such as: theater outings, wine tastings, outdoor concerts, sporting events and more, and for on-site activities and events including: Soup Surprise and White Elephant Bingo; Summer Picnic;, Matinee movies with discussion; Luncheons with guest entertainers, and more! Information on upcoming events can be found by clicking the Current Adult Ministry News links (shown above), or on the Adult Ministry board located outside of the Fellowship Hall.
Let's Go to the Movies!
Every 4th Tuesday of the month, this group meets for a matinee movie at a local theater. On the Thursday prior, the theater, movie title, and showtime are posted on the Adult Ministry board located outside of the Fellowship Hall, or you can call the church office for the information.
Do you like to crafts? Do you like being creative? Do you like snacks? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then this group is for you! We currently meet once per season in the afternoon and evening (you choose whichever time is more convenient for you) to do a craft together. All the crafts we do can be done by anyone! All levels are welcome!
Lunch, Laughs, and Service
This fun group meets about every other month to share lunch, laughs and their time and talents to live beyond our walls by doing different types of service projects that help others in our community and all over the world. Some examples of past service projects include: handmade cards for our Military ministry to take to patients at Hines Veterans Hospital, no sew blankets for LSSI’s Foster Care program, tying quilts and packing school kits for Lutheran World Relief and ripping and rolling bandages for Global Health Ministries.

Annual OSLC Women's Retreat
In conjunction with Lutheran World Relief, this is a group of women who gather twice a month to design, create and assemble quilts made mostly from donated fabric from the congregation. The quilts distributed worldwide to those in greatest need.
In response to the great need worldwide, this group of women gathers monthly to assemble school kits, health kits, and prison kits for people in need throughout the world. Click here for the list of items that are needed for school kit, health kit, newborn kit, and quilting supply donations.
Women's Fellowship and Bible Study
A group of women meet the first Monday of the month at 7:00pm for a book discussion. The books may, or may not, be spiritually-based, but they're all fascinating reads that are sure to invite thoughtful discussion. (Page Turners meets on Mondays, but due to Covid-19 and gathering restrictions, our meeting time and location may be subject to change.)
This group of women meets the second Saturday of each month, September through May, from 9:15 to 10:30am at church. Women of all ages are invited to experience the benefits of a small group that uses selected books as a springboard to discussion and spiritual growth.
We meet at church on the third Saturday of each month from 8:30 to 10:00am to discuss certain books in the Bible to gain further insight and wisdom in a friendly group setting. All women are welcome. Bring your Bible and coffee mug!
Men's Saturday Morning Bible Fellowship
Men's Saturday Morning Bible Fellowship will again meet the first and third Saturday of each month at 7:30am beginning Saturday, September 18, 2021. The meetings will be held at church if COVID-19 restrictions and permissions permit. If not, we will continue to meet in a virtual format via Zoom.
Each meeting will include fellowship and a study from the book “Twelve Ordinary Men” by John MacArthur. We do not have to be perfect to do God's work. Jesus chose ordinary men and turned their weaknesses into strengths. Please join us as we discuss principles from Christ on training the original twelve disciples for today's modern disciple - that’s you! If you have any questions, please call Bruce Cruz at 224-456-5519.
Men's Bible Study
Men's Bible Study meets at our Saviour’s the second and fourth Saturdays of each month from September through May. Sessions run from 7:30am to 9:00 am.
Our study combines discussion of selected books of the Bible with videos from leading biblical authorities on subjects such as biblical history and the Bible as literature. This group welcomes all men with an interest in the Bible, whether just exploring its origins and wisdom for the first time or looking to dig deeper. Bring your questions!
The Bridge Group meets on a Friday night for a game of bridge and fellowship.
