Looking Ahead together
Mount Olivet’s vision statement is “a community partnering with God in the world.” That is what we hope we look like when we are faithfully living out the mission God has given us. Join us when 2018 is still fresh to look ahead together – add your voice to discussions about how we use our buildings and grounds, listen to our church council give a snapshot of where we’ve been and where we’re headed, and start dreaming about summer and the opportunities it brings for you to engage with God in the world.
Jan 14th & 17th // Building & grounds vision team
We are looking ahead and wondering how Mount Olivet will serve our community in new ways. Specifically how our building and grounds can be a tool for our mission. Come join us on January 14th as we think BIG together about where God is calling us to share and partner in our community.
Please plan to attend a walking conversation between services to hear updates on the team’s work thus far and to make your ideas known.

This new 16 week Bible Study will offer a chance for you to ask questions, grow in faith, and build community as you encounter the oldest and shortest Gospel and the portrait of Jesus it reveals.
