Stewardship

Grateful Together

Register for a Drive-Thru Meatball Dinner

Stewardship 2021

Stewardship this year will look a little different, but my hope is it feels very similar as you reflect on God’s gifts to you and then respond with gratitude. First, you will receive a “Stewardship at Home” kit by mail. In it are items to help remind you of the blessings God has given us all: the daily devotions from your pastors and program directors, table graces to say before your meals, and a little bit of fun. Next, you will be sent videos highlighting Mount Olivet ministries (and hopefully providing a few laughs and maybe even a tear or two…). And finally, you are invited to come to a “Pick Up & Pledge” drive-thru to enjoy Mount Olivet’s beloved meatball meal at home (Yes! There will be rice pudding!). At the drive-thru or by mail, please return your pledge card for 2021— declaring your intention to joyfully and gratefully give to God’s work being done through the ministries and people of Mount Olivet. The logistics may change, but the love remains.  Thank you so very much for your generosity.

—Katie Stevenson, Director of Stewardship

"Grateful Together" with Pastor Lose

Our Stewardship season kicks off this Monday, September 14, with “Pick Up & Pledge” Drive-Thru Dinners. Our pastors and staff are excited to see you, grateful for your generosity, and so thankful for you—our devoted Mount Olivet family!

Please view the video to hear Senior Pastor Lose share words of wisdom and comfort as we begin a new church year: where we have been, what we have been doing, and our hopes for the future.

"What We Are Grateful For!"

All your Mount Olivet pastors want to “share” a dinner with you while they express what they are grateful for. In return, we’d love you to share what YOU are grateful for this year. Use the hashtag #MOGratefulTogether on Facebook or Instagram and share with us and all of our Mount Olivet Followers what YOU are grateful for!

Table Graces

Brought to you by the Children & Family Ministry team

Come Lord Jesus, be our guest, our morning joy, our evening rest.
And with our daily bread impart your love and peace to every heart. Amen.

For food in a world where many walk in hunger; For faith in a world where many walk in fear;
For friends in a world where many walk alone; We give you thanks, O Lord. Amen.

Thank you God, for this food, for rest and home and all things good.
For wind and rain and sun above, but most of all for those we love. Amen.

Father, we thank thee for the night, and for the pleasant morning light;
For rest and food and loving care, and all that makes the world so fair.
Help us to do the things we should, to be to others kind and good
In all we do in work or play, to love thee better day by day. Amen.
