"Peggy's on a Mission" Fundraiser

Our own Peggy Posey has volunteered to join a Habitat for Humanity team headed to Samaná Province in the Dominican Republic. However, she must pay her own way. If you want to help defray her travel expenses, you can make out a check to Mount Olive, placing it in an envelope clearly marked "Peggy's on a Mission". We will also have a luncheon fund-raiser on February 9 after Bible Class and before the Voters Meeting. If you cannot attend the luncheon, we will have a door offering after our worship on February 9.

Peggy's team will build new homes and rehabilitate existing homes in Samaná, which is one of the poorer provinces in this poverty-stricken country. She leaves on Feb 22 and returns on Mar 1. Learn more about her trip.

This 1962 American drama is based on Harper Lee’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel of the same name. Set in a small Alabama town in the 1930’s , the story focuses on scrupulously honest, highly respected lawyer Atticus Finch, played by Gregory Peck. Finch puts his career on the line when he agrees to represent a black man accused of rape. The trial and the events are seen through the eyes of Finch’s six-year-old daughter Scout. Popcorn and movie candy will be provided. Dixie Gerhart (402-602-3252)

Confirmation Lunches

Youths Connecting with Adults

The youth group would like to try to connect with more of the congregation. If anyone is interested in hosting the Youth (7 kids active) for lunch/dinner, game night, bible study, service event, career or college advice, etc., please contact Kristi Townsend. We would like to continue to provide opportunities for the youth to get to know members of the congregation. We did this a few years back and the youth and members really enjoyed them. The younger kids have heard all about playing cards, preparing a meal together and sharing life stories at past dinners and events
