Why are Reservations Required?

Posted Aug. 12, 2020

You may wonder why you are required to make a reservation to attend church. The reason is simple - the leadership and staff want to ensure you, your family, and all in attendance are as safe as possible. We are required by the state of Virginia to notify all attendees within 24 hours if someone that was in attendance develops COVID-19 symptoms. That is why it is so important that we have the specific names and contact information for everyone in attendance. When you are making your reservation each week, please be sure to include the names of all attendees and their contact information.

The ushers, elders, and staff are doing their best to document everyone making a reservation and attending. Please take the few extra minutes to use the reservation link above to let us know your information. If you are having difficulty, please contact the church office by calling (703)858-9254.

We thank you for your patience and understanding!


Confirmation Statements of Faith

Posted Aug. 19, 2020
 
As we approach Confirmation Sunday on October 25th, we are recognizing our Confirmands by giving them the opportunity to share their personal Statements of Faith! This year our students will be sharing their Statements of Faith online via prerecorded videos. These will be posted on the members-only section of our website. To view them, log in as a member on the website or create a member account, and go to Information/Confirmation.

Visit our website to see Elizabeth D., Melissa C., Grace P., Elizabeth T., Logan K., Ben M., Jackson H., Colin K. and Sarah S. share their faith. (Remember, you'll have to log in as a member first to view the videos.)

New Sermon Series

Posted Sep. 2, 2020

Beginning Sunday, September 13th, we will begin a sermon series to reintroduce our church family to our OSWLC Mission Statement:

At Our Savior’s Way, we glorify God and make disciples for Jesus by: Forming Relationships, Experiencing Jesus Together, and Sharing God’s Love.

We begin this six-week series with “Forming Relationships” through God’s Word and with one another. At different points throughout the year we will focus on “Experiencing Jesus Together” and “Sharing God’s Love.” We hope you find this Mission Statement sermon series meaningful and that it serves as a constant reminder that even if we are not all physically together as members of OSWLC, we can all do our part in continuing to serve and build God’s kingdom. We hope you enjoy this series!

We hope you enjoy this devotion regarding relationships:

Relationships
 
 
The first lie we are taught:
      Numbers are critically important in life
The second lie we are taught:
      Having bigger numbers is the goal in life
 
This attitude is true about a school test score
      A baseball batting average
The amount on a contract proposal
      Or the salary you bring home
 
In yesterday’s gospel lesson
      Jesus speaks of reconciling and gathering
Not in “standing room only” terms
      But one on one, two or three
 
For Him, relationships define life
      How we connect with each other
Driven by the intimacy of the heart
And not by the size of the crowd
 
Such connecting or re-connecting
      Is challenging and never ending
As our expectations and assumptions
      Are always colliding with those of others
 
The courage to persist however
      Comes from God’s persistence
In reconciling a relationship and
      Gathering us with divine love
 
Knowing what God went through
      To get to our stubborn hearts
Increases our desire to reconcile
      And to gather with people around us
 
One heart at a time
      One person at a time
Having been reconciled and forgiven
      Together we reflect God’s compassion

Fraudulent Emails

Posted Jun. 24, 2020

Lately there have been several fraudulent emails sent to OSWLC church staff and members that look like they are from the leadership of OSWLC. Scammers are very good at creating fake emails that are difficult to distinguish from the real emails we receive from various companies and contacts on a daily basis. Other churches in our area have been targeted as well, and sadly some have fallen victim to these email scams.

Please be extra cautious if you receive an email asking for a favor, to pay an invoice, buy a gift card, or anything that requires your financial attention, especially when the message tells you to not contact the sender due to being in a meeting or being too busy. The staff, leadership, and pastors of OSWLC never send personal emails asking for this type of assistance. Be sure to look at the sender's email address and not just the name listed on the message. All staff emails will have the @oswlc.org extension.

Unfortunately, scammers use information available on our website and social media to pose as staff in an attempt to scam you out of money. We cannot take contact information off of our website and publications, but we can educate our members on being aware of these types of scams. Please be vigilant and watch for these types of emails. If you receive something suspicious or are uncertain of the validity of an email, please forward it on to us at This email address is being protected from spambots.
