You are invited to a free performance on Saturday, March 2, at 8pm at St. Cecilia’s Cathedral of the National Lutheran Choir. The National Lutheran Choir, now in its 33rd season, engages listeners of all faiths by singing the spirit of music familiar and new. The National Lutheran Choir has set out on tour with Kim André Arnesen’s magnificent work for chorus and strings entitled Holy Spirit Mass.

Volunteers are needed to help serve, clean up, and to make desserts. Sign up at the back of church today or talk to the Kitchen Coordinators - Tamra Moffett or Connie Townsend.

30 Hour Famine

Every five seconds, a child under 5 dies—and nearly half those deaths are from hunger-related causes. Mount Olive Youth are participating in World Vision’s 30 Hour Famine on Friday, February 22, at 6:00 p.m. to Saturday, February 23, at 8:00 a.m. For 30 hours, they will skip meals to raise funds that will help feed hungry children around the world. Your help is needed in three ways. A gift of $40 helps feed and care for a child for one month. Please put your tax-deductible donation in an envelope marked “World Vision” and place it in the offering plate. Secondly, volunteers are needed to help make the Famine weekend a success. If you would like to pitch in, please talk with Dustin or Mary Hogue. Third, please pray for God’s grace over this event and its fundraising, and that our youth will grow deeper in their love for Him while helping change hungry kids’ lives.

Women's Bible Study

Rachel stared at the baby announcement, swallowing hard.  Another son.  She’d already heard the news of course.  Her sister had given birth to her fourth child nearly a month ago.  Rachel’s eyes flash...something has to be done about this intolerable situation…

If you want to hear the “rest of the story” join the Women’s Bible Study group on Tuesday, February 19 at 6 p.m.  Our story is from Genesis 30, 31 and 35:16-20, if you want to read ahead.

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 and 402-453-6707 (night number.)

Adult Information Class

Our 15-week Spring Adult Information Class will begin on Sunday, February 10, at 3:30 p.m. This two-hour class is for those who are new in their faith and for those who want to reinvigorate their faith. No matter where you are in your journey, God yearns to get closer to you. To register, please call the church office at 402-455-8700. You can also find registration forms inside the Sunday bulletin. Fill out the registration and drop it in the offering plate.
