Vacation Bible School
Each year, usually in the month of August, children are treated to a busy week full of fun, music, crafts and lessons of God's love for us. The success of the week comes together with many volunteers from the congregation who give their time and talents to ensure a happy Christian environment. Check the calendar on our homepage for current information.
For Youth/Young Adults
Weekly Bible Study
Thursday evenings there is a youth Bible Study lead by Pastor Ted; this runs 7pm to 8:30pm and follows the confirmation schedule. The format for this study is reading whole chapters consecutively from a Book of the Bible and discussing what was read between chapters. We also look at the Lutheran Confessions as found in the Book of Concord and incorporate other Lutheran resources like Lutheranism 101. Each evening we get together we try to look at a couple hymns from the Lutheran Service Book with an emphasis on the lyrical content and how this relates to Scripture and to our lives as Christians.
Monthly Bible Study: Pop Culture and the Bible
Once a Month Youth/Young Adults get together with Pastor Ted to watch a movie and then discuss themes and plot points and references that related to Scripture and life as a Christian in the world we live in. This covers almost all genres of film and addresses a wide range of popular topics. One of the goals of this style of study is build up and sharpen a person’s skills at discernment and to be good consumers of popular culture, basically turning on your brain while you’re watching and applying your Christian worldview to what you're watching. See our Calendar for dates and times.
Women's Bible Study
Our women’s Bible study meets Monday, from 1:30 pm to 2:30 pm in Mt. Olive's Fellowship Lounge. All women are invited and occasional attendance is welcomed. Please bring your Bible and a pen; a few copies of each study guide including printed Bible passages will be provided.
Presently, we have several Adult Bible Studies at Mount Olive. Our first Bible Study, which runs from September through May each year, is held every Sunday during our first service starting at 9:15 am. This study is led by Mr. Cam Pelzer and is located in the library lounge. On Thursday mornings at 9:15am, Pastor Terry leds our Bible Brunch Bible study which is also located in the library louonge. This study runs from September through May each year.
Several times each year, Mount Olive Lutheran Church offers Pastor’s Classes. These classes, taught either by Pastor Terry or Pastor Ted, are made up of 6 lessons taught over an 6 week period. Those interested in church membership are invited to attend, as well as those who would like a "refresher course" in the basics of the faith. Check our main church calendar, found on our home page, for more information.
Grief is no respecter of persons. Grief is necessary and normal. It is a highly personal response to losses that come our way, whenever we must deal with major life changes: loss of health, limb, employment, home, business, infertility, loss of relationships, be it separation, divorce or the loss of a loved one through death.
