Shipwrecked is the theme of this summer’s Vacation Bible School. Remember Gilligan’s Island? Me, the Skipper, Gilligan and 30 of my best friends will be shipwrecked the week of July 16 along with the VBS students. Look forward to Tropical Treats, Castaway Music and Bible stories that tell how Jesus rescues us. Several positions will need to be filled, so please prayerfully consider when asked to help. —Jody Wells-Padron

Sunday, March 25, is Palm Sunday. Come a few minutes earlier than normal for the Procession of Palms.

Adult Bible Class Hour

This week during the Christian Education Hour in the Fellowship Hall, our focus will be Evangelism. Tim Lorang, the Director of the Board of Evangelism will lead us. Grab some coffee and join us.

The Great Three Days

We will have worship opportunities on Holy (Maundy) Thursday, Good Friday, and Holy Saturday evenings (March 29-31). All of these services are incomplete and anticipate your return the next day. Please make plans to be with us. This is all part of the most sacred week of the year for us Christians.

Easter Lilies

Would you like to donate a lily to decorate the altar for Easter? Sunday, March 18, is the last day to sign up. There is a sign-up sheet on the back table in church or call the church office. The cost is $10. You can either take the lily home after Easter services or donate it. 

Easter Egg Hunt

The annual Easter Egg Hunt will be Saturday, March 31, from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. (Please note the new  location this year — Mount Olive’s property!) There will be a bounce house, egg hunt, an Easter skit and gifts. This is an excellent opportunity to invite families in the neighborhood to get to know our church family! Volunteers are needed. Please talk to Tim Lorang about how you can help 

Lenten Dinner/Service Thurs, March 15

Join us Thursday, March 15, for dinner served between 5:30 and 6:30 pm to help busy families attend midweek worship. The menu this week is fried chicken, potato salad, baked beans, rolls and dessert. The suggested donation for meals is $5 per adult or $20 per family.

Please also consider lending a hand by signing up at the back of church for cooking, serving, or clean-up for one of the upcoming weeks. We would love some talented guest chefs to take the lead on one of the upcoming Lenten meals, also! Please talk to Tamra Moffett or Connie Townsend if you would be willing to moonlight as our guest chef.  

Canvas and Coffee

St. Patrick's Day Special Event!

Please join us this Saturday, March 17th, at 9:30 a.m. in Luther Hall for Canvas and Coffee. We will provide the materials you need to take home a small canvas painting of a spring flower to start or add to your seasonal flower painting collection. Mount Olive amateur artists  have previously created a fall mum and a winter poinsettia painting. Our Artist-in-Residence, Marilyn Beig, will once again guide us in making our creation. If you already like to paint in acrylics, you are welcome to bring your own brushes. Please sign up in advance by emailing mjbehr@cox.net or the church office at mountolv@msn.com. Call Marsha Behr at 402-250-1269 if you have any questions. Looking forward to a morning of fun and fellowship. Guests are welcome and refreshments will be served!

Gathering of Alms

As part of your Lenten discipline, we encourage individuals and families to fast one meal each week during Lent. Bring the money you would have spent for that meal and put it into a special envelope that is available inside the Sunday bulletin during Lent. Lutheran Family Services of Nebraska, Lutheran World Relief and Concordia University, Seward, will receive the Lenten alms.
