Worship at Mount Olivet
Attending worship is the best way of getting to know us!
9 am Sunday service includes traditional Lutheran liturgy and is accompanied by organ, piano, and our Chancel Choir. Our Pastors wear their robes and stoles for this service.
10:45 am Sunday service is a contemporary worship experience with a full band. During the school year our children’s ministry (Bible Explorers) children join their families midway through the service for offering, sacrament, and prayers.
6:15 pm Wednesday service is a 45 minute contemporary worship experience with a full band. 5th-12th graders often take leadership roles in the service by serving as ushers, reading scripture, and serving communion. (Fall-spring / No summer Wednesday worship)
In Holy Communion we meet God in the simple gifts of bread and wine, experience unity with each other, and are renewed to serve in the world. Everyone is welcomed at God’s table, including children. You may also choose a gluten-free wafer, grape juice, or a blessing. Communion is served weekly, except for the first week of the month when we remember our Baptisms.
PRAYERS OF THE PEOPLE
At the end of every service we close with 'Prayers of the People' where all are invited to share individual prayers for community and a world in need.
On the first week of the month we celebrate new baptisms as well as remember our own baptisms*. You are invited to a baptismal font to both receive a blessing and also bless the person behind you, reminding one another, "You belong to Jesus."
*Interested in being baptized?
Healing services are held quarterly during worship. You will be invited forward to receive a blessing in healing oil.
