Interested in an Adult Mission Experience? Why let the youth have all the fun? Join Mount Olivet adults of all ages for a local mission trip during the evening hours of Sunday, July 29-Friday, August 3. Engage with our community partners, deepen your faith, and connect in community as we learn about and make a difference in Mount Olivet’s four partnership areas: Feeding, Housing, People in Transition, and Faith Partners. Dinner will be provided each evening. If you’re interested, have questions, or want to help plan, reach out to Pastor Joel.

senior high mission trips
July 21 - 28 // Grades 9-12th // Center for Student Ministries (CSM)
CSM Denver is proud to partner with many agencies and ministries around the city that are willing to use their voice on behalf of those who are ignored or cannot speak for themselves. Everyone has a story and deserves a chance to share. When CSM participants visit Denver they have the opportunity to partner with several of these ministries. They will serve at places like the Denver Rescue Mission and be able to put a name to homelessness by serving and eating alongside the patrons.
Our desire for groups that come through Denver would be that they would be more than tourists for a week. We want them to reach out, touch and experience the city in unique ways. They may find themselves in touristy places like down along the 16th street pedestrian mall, but instead of shopping they will be looking for ways that they could meet a need for someone they might normally pass by.
Wilderness with Wapo:
June 16-21 // Senior High // Camp Wapo

Spend four afternoons having fun and serving our neighbors - we'll participate in service activities in- and outside of Mount Olivet, bravely take on challenge and leadership games, and spend some time having good ol' fun.
4th graders may spend each morning participating in VBS while 5th and 6th graders are encouraged to volunteer for VBS. If you are a part of VBS, pack a lunch and we'll eat together before we begin our afternoon (12-12:30pm).
*Parents & BE/CASY leaders: we are looking for adults to help us keep our energy in check and chauffeur us on a few field trips. If you are interested, contact Beth McGrew-King or Pete Erickson.
