Worship Schedule…
  • In-Person Worship Times:  7:45 a.m. and 10:15 a.m.
  • Online Worship:  9 a.m. (login info below)
  To make sure we can continue to have in-person worship so that everyone will be safe, here are the essentials you need to know:
  1. Masks are required while in the building and during worship.
  2. On entering the building everyone is asked to sanitize their hands.
  3. To maintain social distancing, max capacity set for the sanctuary is 50.  There is additional seating for 15 in the narthex. Ushers will help with seating as needed.
  4. After worship we ask that everyone immediately exit the building to help maintain social distancing and to allow time for sanitizing.
        Some things that are different, for now:
  1. The worship service will be about 30 minutes.
  2. Communion will be in the pews.
  3. There will be no congregational singing.
Now we need volunteers for the following ministry tasks:  Ushers, A/V Operators, Sanitizers, and Altar Guild.  If you would like to serve in one of these ways, contact Eva Schindhelm or the church office (363-8251 or Thank you!

Care Needs As the pandemic continues and there is much uncertainty in our lives and communities, please know that Mount Olive is a resource for you to draw on. Please contact Pastor Scot, Debbie in the Mount Olive office or Cindy Dobberke if you find yourself in need.
Invitation to Prayer
I never intended that this much time would go by before offering an additional opportunity to learn more about prayer.  Today, I invite you again to “Come and See” as we pray together with Sacred Scripture.  Beginning on Wednesday, May 19th, for six weeks we will practice together the prayer practice of Lectio Divina.  The format for this will be to experience this ancient prayer practice.  Join me while we listen to God speak as we savor Sacred Text in this unique way.  Praying through Scripture enables us to cultivate, through Lectio, the capacity to listen deeply for God in the whole of life.  I look forward to praying together.
Beginning Wednesday, May 19, 2021
From 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.
Ending June 30, 2021
If you are interested, contact Betty Hinkelman.  If you would like to join in the prayer but the time slot is not working for you, let me know as well.
