Pastor Jank is retiring after 45 years of serving God and ministering to the people of Mount Olive and our community. While we are sad to see him retire, we surely want to thank God for his service and celebrate his many years of ministry. Please join us for the following events:

Sunday, June 30, 2019

Dinner, music, fellowship, and memories of Pastor Jank's ministry at Mount Olive with Rev. Sommerfeld as the Master of Ceremonies. (Scoular Building, 6:00 PM) We regret that we can no longer accept dinner reservations due to our caterer's notice requirements. However, you are still encouraged and welome to attend our 9:00 AM worship and our 4:00 PM Hymn Festival.
