Our Story

We are a church family that cares about each other and about you, our neighbor. We want you to know that you are important to God and to us. Here at Mt. Olive we have been given God’s Good News and want to share it. If you are seeking friendship with people that really do care, we invite you to join us on Sunday morning at 9:00 a.m. for worship.

Here is how we came to the neighborhood. On 19 Oct 1927, a meeting was held at Florence City Hall "with a view to organizing a congregation". The first place of worship was the old Methodist Church on the northeast corner of 30th & Mormon Streets. On 01 Jan 1942, our name was changed to Mount Olive Lutheran Church. In 1946, land for our present location was purchased, and the present church building was dedicated on 14 May 1950. The two-story educational wing was dedicated on 29 Oct 1967.
