Mount Olivet is recognized nationwide for evangelical excellence experienced at our Minneapolis and West Campuses. To continue the growth and share the love of Christ in the western suburbs, we are embarking on a 48,000-square-foot addition at the West Campus. It is exciting to know our West Campus Sunday School, Confirmation classes, and choirs will no longer need to meet in four separate buildings and that additional sanctuary space and a commercial kitchen will meet the needs of our growing congregation for years to come. Please prayerfully consider the positive influence your church has in your life, and imagine the impact Mount Olivet will have in the western suburbs as we share Christ’s love in action.
February 2019 Update
In the summer of 2017, the Congregation Council of Mount Olivet took a leap of faith in authorizing the go-ahead to start construction on the 48,000 sq. ft. addition to the West Campus, even though we still had nearly $3M to raise. Now, as we see the beautiful structure rising from the ground, we have an opportunity to make good on that act of faith by completing our capital campaign with a strong finish. We are now about $2.5M from our goal. While that can seem like a large number, we can easily reach that goal if 800 households committed to contributing $20/wk over the next three years. This is the time when we need everyone to be involved, everyone to take ownership, and everyone express their gratitude for, ownership in, and pride about the marvelous work we are doing as we seek to complete a building large enough to hold God’s dreams for Mount Olivet.
At the West Campus, to recognize everyone who is contributing, we’ve put a banner in the West narthex and invite you to sign the left side of the wall if you’ve already contributed and the right side if you plan to contribute during this last phase. And, yes!, you can sign both sides! My thanks to all of you who have already pledged and given to the capital campaign, and my thanks in advance to all those who will participate in this final portion of the campaign as we finish strong in 2019. Together, we can finish strong.
