Worship services at Mount Olive Lutheran Church are much like a conversation between God and us. Through His Word, the Bible, and through the sacraments of Baptism and Communion, Jesus Christ reaches into our broken lives with His tender mercy. Sunday worship services provide us with opportunities to receive what Jesus gives and to join with fellow Christians to respond to Him in our prayers and praise.
Join us for worship this Sunday:
The 9:00am Worship Service includes traditional hymns & modern worship songs plus the music of our adult choir.
The 10:30am Worship Service includes modern worship songs plus the music of our adult choir and praise team.
Sunday worship services incorporate an order of service that includes songs of praise and worship, a responsive Psalm, confession and forgiveness, the Apostles' or Nicene Creed, Scripture readings, a children's message, congregational prayers, the Lord's Prayer, and a sermon that applies God's Word to our daily lives. The Lord's Supper is celebrated at each service on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month. Baptisms are also celebrated during Sunday services. Those interested in learning more about God's grace in the water and Word of Baptism are encouraged to contact Pastor Jeff at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Children's Church | Sundays @ 10:30am
Children's Church is an opportunity for children ages 3 through 6th Grade to connect with their loving God through age-appropriate prayers, worship songs, activities and Bible lessons. Following the Children's Message at the 10:30am service, children are led to their Children's Church classes. During the distribution of Communion, children return to the sanctuary with their classes for a special blessing. Parents pick up their children in their classrooms at the conclusion of the 10:30am worship service.
What We Believe
Mount Olive Lutheran Church exists to bring all people into a living relationship with Jesus Christ through fervent worship, caring relationships, spiritual growth, service and outreach. As a Christian congregation, we hold to the principles of the Protestant Reformation: salvation comes to us by GRACE ALONE through FAITH ALONE as SCRIPTURE ALONE serves as the means by which Jesus Christ brings the forgiveness and new life that He alone can give.
If you'd like to learn more about God's grace poured out in the waters of Baptism, we'd love to visit with you! We believe that Jesus is inviting people of all ages to experience the new birth of water and the Spirit!

Mount Olive Lutheran Church exists to bring all people into a living relationship with Jesus Christ through fervent worship, caring relationships, spiritual growth, service and outreach.
Jesus commissioned His church in Matthew 28:18-20: "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age." According to this Great Commission, we seek to be a community of "disciples making disciples."
To accomplish Christ's mission among us for the glory of God and the good of people, Mount Olive Lutheran Church values the following:
Core Value 1: The good news of Jesus Christ (the Gospel) is the power of God to save people.
Core Value 2: All people matter to God, and therefore, they matter to Mount Olive.
Core Value 3: Every member of Mount Olive will pursue ongoing spiritual growth through the Word and sacraments, prayer and worship.
Core Value 4: Forgiving, loving relationships will permeate every aspect of church life.
Core Value 5: Families play a vital role in building the foundation of a life-long relationship with Jesus Christ.
Core Value 6: God wants every believer to identify and utilize their spiritual gifts and talents to serve Jesus Christ and to impact His church, their community, and the world.
Core Value 7: Life-change happens when people are connected to one another in Jesus Christ.
These seven core values express key emphases of our ministry and mission at Mount Olive. Since our congregation's founding in 1995, they have provided a framework for our ministry together as we seek to bring all people into a living relationship with Jesus Christ.
