Why Not Visit?

Guests are WELCOME!

and EXPECTED!

 

You are not too bad to come in. You are not too good to stay out.

Please come and be our guest. You are more than welcome to join any of our activities or worship services. In fact, more than simply inviting you, we are expecting you to come!Photo of a yellow globular flower with a dragonfly on it and the words "Welcome Guests!"

DIRECTIONS & MAP

 

No Pressure

Mount Olive Lutheran Church (LCMS) is designed to serve both Christians and those who might consider themselves spiritual seekers.  It’s a safe place for people who are looking for answers to their spiritual questions, and simply want to check out Christianity without anyone pressuring them.  It’s also a place where forgiveness is proclaimed and practiced, where positive attitudes are developed, where hurts are healed, life’s lessons are learned and friendships nourished.

Guests are always welcome . . . .

What to expect? Drawing of hands open to hold a dove and the words "Join Us for Worship"

As our guest at worship service, bible study, or potluck meal, you will be welcomed without being singled out or put in the spotlight. We have a guest book where you can leave a record of your visit, but it is not necessary to sign in.

You do not need any special knowledge or experience. Everything you need to follow the service is printed in the bulletin which is handed out as you enter or it is displayed on the large screen. We do stand up at certain times and sit down at other times but always clearly announced, (We only kneel at the communion rail.) so you can be comfortable knowing that no special knowledge is needed.

How to Dress?

Our congregation varies widely in how they dress so you would be comfortable in a suit and tie or casual clothing.

 Will I Be Asked for Money?

Part of the service involves collection of offerings for the support of the church’s building and programs. (Our church is completely self-supporting.) Our guests, however, are expected not to contribute anything at all.  Please do not feel pressured to put anything into the collection plate. {In fact, many members (who do contribute) may not put anything in—perhaps because they give on a monthly basis etc.}

 

What about Small Children?

Sunday School for the children begins at 9:15 AM, the same time as the Adult Bible Study.

Child Care and a Nursery are available for younger children during the Sunday 10:30 AM service.

There is a “Children’s Church” available during part of the 10:30 worship service. Usually children are invited to their special class about the time the pastor begins his message and the children return to join their families just before the worship service ends.

 

*All of these things may not be available during the summer months of June, July and August.

 

Worship Schedule

Special needs?

Space is set aside for wheelchairs beside the pews in a few rows to make those in a wheelchair feel as included as possible.

Hearing support is available with headsets for anyone who needs.

Any of the elders will be glad to assist you.
