Wednesday Word: The Best-Known Verses NOT in the Bible

                    MPLS: Wed  Jan 9 - Feb 6, 9:30-10:45am, Rm 207

A great opportunity to learn from and get to know your pastors! Each week at Wednesday Word a different pastor teaches. This fall, the pastors have chosen to teach stories from Genesis that are not one of the texts for our October/November Sunday sermon series. Both the stories and who is teaching each week are a surprise—that’s part of the fun! Along with the fun, you will find that as you know more about Genesis as a whole, you also will discover greater meaning and connection in this fall’s Sunday sermons. Join in—and bring a friend. All are welcome! Cost: Donation given in class.

Tuesdays Together: Looking with Luke

 

MPLS: Tues Oct 16 - Nov 6, 7-8:30pm, Rm 207

From December through May, Mount Olivet continues to “enter the story” as we focus on the Gospel of Luke in Sunday morning worship. Add depth and richness to that experience by joining Dr. Sarah Henrich, Professor of New Testament, on this four-week journey through this gospel overflowing with memorable characters, powerful parables, and themes central to our lives as disciples. Together, we will uncover early clues as to what lies ahead in Luke’s gospel. We will walk with Jesus as he heals, argues, breaks some rules, and keeps others. We will recognize Luke’s unique portrayal of Jesus and what it means to live the gospel in the real world. We will witness Jesus praying and teaching us to pray and why. Finally, having been drawn deeply into the story, we will ask: Do disciples of a crucified Lord still have a word for the world? Please join us on this memorable and enriching journey! Cost: Donation in class.
