Missions Ministry

The Missions Ministry at OSLC exists to… connect the members of this church home to the wider church, thus participating in the Great Commission.  We make and maintain direct mission partnerships that we support through ongoing prayer, financial support, and participating in short-term cross cultural mission trips

Our Mission Ministry Team…  Encourages the congregation and its members to support current mission partners.  We do monthly “Mission Moments” at worship to update on these activities. The mission ministry serve as role models to the congregation in contributing time, talents and treasures in their service regarding mission trips and involvement in local mission partnerships.   

Both Internal and External Goals with this ministry

Internally – Help Build Church's Discipleship Awareness, Empathy & Capacity to give.

Externally - Build Partners in Discipleship that we can support and involve our parishioners in their ministry. witnesses for Jesus Christ on the North Shore of Massachusetts and around the world. There is no greater honor that we have than sharing the love of Christ through our words, deeds and finances. Our Mission strategy is based on Jesus’ words in Acts 1:8, ‘But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you and you will be my witnesses to Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.’
