Mt. Olive welcomes you to a place that is filled with Gods blessings. Join us as we gather together to worship, witness and serve together as we grow in God's Love. We welcome all to come by for a visit or join us in one of our bible studies, worship services or at any of our service and fellowship events.
Upon celebrating our first 25 years as the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, now is our moment to look toward the next 25 years and boldly respond to the needs of God's creation with a living, daring confidence in God's grace. We are a church that rolls up our sleeves and gets to work. Let's clean up neighborhoods, deliver meals, collect supplies for refugees overseas, visit our neighbors or help a child learn to read. You work every day to welcome your neighbors and make your community a better place. Now let's do it together as one body, using our hands to do God's work of restoring and reconciling communities in Jesus Christ’s name throughout the world.
MT. OLIVE CARES 5K RUN/WALK
Mt. Olive Lutheran Church is holding its 3rd Annual Mt. Olive Cares 5K Run/Walk on September 13, 2014. The 5K race begins at 8:00am. A 1-Mile Fun Run begins at 9:15am and the Post Race Awards Ceremony is at 10:00am. All activities begin and end at the church.
All proceeds from the event are to be used to support Mt. Olive Cares Ministry. All funds are used to support and assist local community families in need. The Ministry’s emphasis is on supplying families with resources for survival, focusing on the innocent children who are directly affected.
Online registration is now available. A paper entry form is also available if you prefer to register the old-fashioned way! Discounted registration fees are available for elementary and middle school students, families, and groups (businesses, running clubs, neighborhoods, churches, etc.) A dry-fit shirt and goody bag are included with race registration.
September is National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month! More than 23 million children & teenagers in the U.S. are obese or overweight, a statistic that health and medical experts consider an epidemic. Childhood obesity puts nearly one third of America's children at early risk for Type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease and even stroke! Bring the kids and join us for a great run this September!
