Dear Mount Olivet Members and Friends,
We have so much for which to be grateful at all times, but are especially mindful of this as we approach Thanksgiving, a day set aside to give thanks for our manifold blessings. This November, I invite you to experience the joy of giving thanks by joining us for worship the week of Thanksgiving at our Thanksgiving Eve Worship Service on 11/22, at 6pm. I also invite you to share your gifts at one, or all, of our service opportunities. There are many ways to give!
- Bring non-perishable food items to support local food banks for our Food Drive
- Donate non-handmade winter outerwear to the MOCW Mitten and Coat Drive
- Donate an unwrapped gift to our Christmas For All Donation Drive. Your donations fill a Christmas store at our West Campus where clients of our ministry partner Love INC can come do their holiday shopping
Financial gifts may be given using the envelope mailed to you, online at here, or by contacting the finance office at 612.767.2255. Your gift supports local and global hunger initiatives.
