OFFICE HOURS/PRAYER HOURS:  The church newsletter and weekly worship bulletins remind us that Office Hours at Mount Olive are Monday thru Thursday from 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. These hours when the church is open are also your invitation to come spend some time in the sanctuary for personal prayer and meditation.  Hymnals and pew Bibles can be used as devotional aids.  Groups that meet at church during these hours use the Fellowship Hall and Library areas so your meditation should be undisturbed.

WEEKLY TEXT STUDY:  Wednesday mornings 9-10 a.m.  Join Pr. Scot in learning and discussing the Bible reading for the upcoming Sunday worship. 

AT WORSHIP” VOLUNTEERS NEEDED:  “Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth.  Worship the Lord with gladness; come into his presence with singing.”  We are seeking volunteers in the following areas at our worship services:   communion servers, readers, ushers/welcome team, coffee fellowship, altar guild, and A/V operator.  Volunteers are scheduled approximately once per month.  If you are interested in serving, please contact the church office. 

PHOTOS NEEDED AND REQUESTED!  Help us celebrate how you see and serve God in your life.  We want to share how God’s love is shown in the world through the people of Mount Olive with periodic slideshows shown in worship.  We need your photos of:  You and your family serving your neighbor.  Maybe it’s at your work, or school, or organization.  Maybe it’s at a planned event or simply shoveling your neighbors walk like you’ve been doing for years.  OR God active in the world: in the beauty of nature, and in the actions and faces of those around you.  Please send your photos with a brief description to: photos@mountolive-elca.net.  This will be an ongoing project!  We would like to have at least 15 – 20 photos for each slideshow. 

THE COFFEE FELLOWSHIP TEAM needs your help!  Coffee fellowship is served following the 8 & 9:30 worship services.  Mount Olive provides the coffee; the 8 a.m. server prepares the coffee and the 9:30 server cleans up.  Each server brings a snack and juice for their service.  Store-bought cookies are just fine!  If you are interested in joining this ministry or have questions, please contact the church office.  And many thanks to our current servers and those who have served in the past!
