I am a member of Mt. Olive Lutheran Church and have been a member since late in the 1990s. I volunteered for the job of running the website simply because I was upset to see that our website had virtually no content at all. I am a retired elementary public school teacher. My wife, Nancy and I live near Mt. Olive.
