We’ll be kicking off 2022 with a morning walk at Beach Lake. Meet at 8:30 AM on Saturday, Jan. 15 at the Beach Lake parking lot for a walk on the lake. Watch the moon set and then join us for breakfast at Bobbie’s Café afterwards. Puppies, kids, relatives, friends and neighbors—all are welcome!! Let me know if you’ll be coming (or just join us at Bobbie’s—wink, wink)

Ladies Movie Night

We will be having a Ladies Movie Night on Friday January 21st. There will be dinner at the Church at 6:45pm followed by a fun Movie. Feel free to bring a drink or dish to share! To RSVP there is a sign up sheet at the Connection Corner or email Abby Keller at office@orlc-ak.org.

DCE Intern

Join us during worship on January 16th in welcoming DCE Intern, Matt Burgener!

Please feel free to bring an appetizer/finger food to share this Sunday as we welcome Matt and take down Christmas decorations. Also, if you were still hoping to get a gift card for Matt, those can still be dropped off on Sunday.

First Aid Kits

We are working on updating our First Aid Kits. If anyone is moved to donate supplies that we need please try to find Latex Free items. The current location of our kits are in the kitchen and with the AED in the narthex. For additional information please contact Sally Coburn.


We're sending a team out through Alaska Mission for Christ this summer! Join us June 2-7 as we head out to Kenny Lake (near Chitina) to work on the old Sapa compound. It's recently been acquired and is being repurposed for Lutheran ministries, teen camps, etc... Whether you can swing a hammer or flip a hamburger, we need you! Cost will be roughly $150.
