Mount Olive Meetings to Share, Dream, and Plan: Our first meetings will be with the Women's Bible Study on October 15 at 6:00 PM, followed by a meeting with the Men's Group on October 23 at 6:00 PM. Many more meetings will follow. Dixie Gerhart will have sign-up sheets in the narthex (lobby area the the back of the worship area). Please make sure to sign up for a meeting. No one is too young or too old to attend a meeting and share the thoughts they have for Mount Olive's future. Please pray often about these subjects: What is Mount Olive's mission? What do we do well? What do we do poorly or not at all? What should we be focusing on? Please prayerfully consider this invitation.

Our five middle school youth would love to attend the Middle School Gathering on November 9-10 at the Holiday Inn Hotel & Conference Center in Kearney. The Gathering, sponsored by the Nebraska District LCMS, is a wonderful opportunity for youth to come together to hear and study God’s Word and celebrate His love for us. This year’s theme is based on Acts 4:12 and focused on the word kNOw! Students will be reminded that they are KNOWN by God through their baptism, saved by Jesus and NO one else, and shown what that means for them NOW.
However, they need two adults to accompany them. Won't you please consider volunteering? Contact Kristi Townsend, firstname.lastname@example.org or (402) 457-9611

It's time for a new church directory. Save our Church Secretary some time. Review your information in the 2018 Directory. Send changes or confirm that your information is correct by sending an e-mail to email@example.com or call the Church Office at 402-455-8700.
Come on folks. If you don't let our Secretary, Jill, know whether or not changes are needed, she will just have to contact you.

Pastor Meyer officially assumed his position as our Intentional Interim Pastor on August 13. He will be responsible for all the duties of a resident pastor. However, he will also lead us through a process that will prepare us to call our next resident pastor.
His schedule will be flexible with calls, home visits, and meetings to acquaint himself with our congregation and members. He plans to normally be in his office at Mount Olive on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays from 9:00 AM through 1:00 PM. Please call the Pastor Meyer (402-580-2929) for appointments or call the the Church Office (402-455-8700). It would be wise to call the Church Office before stopping in during Pastor Meyer's office hours—just in case he might have an appointment outside the office.
Much of his reading, studying, and worship preparation will be done at his residence where he keeps his personal library and files. He is always available by phone (402-580-2929) or by e-mail (email@example.com)
