A Mission Field - In Our Own Backyard

Sometimes, sharing the good news of Jesus Christ begins in our backyard. University Chapel, on the University of Nebraska-Lincoln campus, long has ministered to college students as they begin their life journey. While this mission field continues to grow, University Chapel is showing its age. So is the District Office in Seward. The Nebraska District LCMS is conducting a campaign to support renovation of University Chapel and the District Office. The goal is to make both places more accessible inside and out. Mount Olive is supporting that effort. Representatives from the District and Chapel will be here with us on Sunday, November 25, to present during service and Bible study. They also will ask you for our support. Please prayerfully consider making a gift in support of these two ministries. To learn more about the District’s campaign, visit www.ndlcms.org/building-together.

Cookie Swap

Join us for a Cookie Swap. On Sunday, December 9, at 11:30 a.m. bring three to four dozen cookies, bars, snacks or candies. Bring a container to take home your Christmas goodies (plan for around three dozen). If you would like to share your recipe, bring it and we will make copies as needed. The swap will take place after the Adult Bible Class Hour/Sunday School Class. You will have plenty of delicious treats to serve family and friends during the holidays! Questions?

Men's Bible Study

“As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another” (Proverbs 27:17). On Wednesdays from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., a men’s group are meeting weekly at Mount Olive for fellowship, Bible study, and prayer. The purpose is to provide a mid-week opportunity to connect with our brothers in Christ to grow in faith, service and love. If you’re looking to connect on a deeper level with your Christian brothers to sharpen and be sharpened, please pray for and join us. Contact Tim Lorang with questions.

Women's Bible Study

Our Women’s Bible Study group is discovering that soap opera story writers must use the Book of Genesis as source material. These “Slightly Bad Girls of the Bible” are an impatient, faithless, untruthful and headstrong bunch of ladies…BUT…God still loves them…God still cares for them…God still hears them…just as he does for us. Our next meeting isTuesday, November 27th, at 6:00 p.m No worries if you cannot slide in right at 6, we usually start off with a connect question. Each lesson stands on its own, so if you miss a night…you’re still okay. If you want more information regarding the study, please do not hesitate to contact me…Dixie Gerhart, 402-602-3252 (daytime) or 402-453-6707 (night number)
