ORLC Faith Community Nurse

ORLC Family,

Here are two of my favorite emergency preparedness checklists. With our weather getting warmer and many of us gearing up for more time outdoors, it can also be a good time to include emergency supplies.

The first one is a “Go Bag”, which should be a pack/tote bag with essentials for at least a day. I recommend a Go Bag in your vehicle, and consider one for your pets’ needed supplies.

The other one you have probably seen from me in the past, but is a plan to build a 7-day supply of food and other essentials for family and pets. It is divided into 24 weeks, but you can build your supply stash faster or slower depending on budget.

Please let me know if you have questions. There are some useful websites on the supply list brochure, and the www.fema.gov site also has tons of information. Please remember if you have special equipment or medication needs, to include them as well. I save our previous prescription glasses for kits too.

In His Service,


ORLC Landscaping

We're looking for a few people to tackle lawn maintenance this summer at ORLC. Typically, high schoolers have done it in the past, though anyone certainly can. Hours are flexible and logged as needed. Talk to Scott Roelfs or Pastor James if interested.

Coffee Baristas

Looking for a way to serve your church family behind the scenes? Love coffee? We're looking to form a crew willing to come a bit earlier (~8am) Sunday mornings and fill the air with sweet, sweet coffee aromas.
