Thanksgiving

Worship & share your gifts!

Happy Thanksgiving

Mount Olivet Members and Friends,

This November, I invite you to worship with us the week of Thanksgiving and also share your gifts at one, or all, of our service opportunities. There are four ways to help: 1) the non-perishable Food Drives that support local food banks; 2) the MOCW Mitten and Coat Drive that is so necessary at this time of year, 3) the Christmas For All Donation Drive, where your donations go to fill a Christmas store at our West Campus where clients of our ministry partner Love INC. can do their holiday shopping; and 4) the Thanksgiving offering that supports local and global hunger initiatives. Thank you for your partnership in ministry at Mount Olivet Lutheran Church, a family of faith that knows itself blessed to be a blessing!

Donation information is available here. Financial gifts may be given using the envelope mailed to you, online at mtolivet.org, or by contacting the finance office at 612.767.2255.
