Welcome to Mount Olive Lutheran Church

 

COVID-19 Update

WORSHIP

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: Mount Olive continues to loosen pandemic procedures beginning in Advent 2021. The pews have been opened up. On SUNDAYS, face coverings and social distancing are optional. As of November 28, 2021, Holy Communion will return to the rail. In addition, if you feel better about “walk-up” style Communion, this will continue to be an option. The ushers will direct everyone.

THE SATURDAY 5:00 PM WORSHIP SERVICE will remain a FACE-COVERING REQUIRED service. Please note: If you want/need to remove your face-covering, you may view the service live in the fellowship hall. Holy Communion will be implemented as written in the first paragraph. The iWave air purification devices remain in the HVAC systems.

SUNDAY SCHOOL & ADULT BIBLE CLASS

ADULT/YOUTH (fellowship hall) and CONFIRIMATION (prechool “big room”) classes will continue to be held Sundays at 9:15 AM.

CHILDREN’S SUNDAY SCHOOL, ages 2-11, will meet upstairs at 9:15 AM.

MIDDLE SCHOOL CLASS meets outside behind the preschool area, 9:15 AM. 

You can listen to Pr. Walt’s sermons on the Sermon Page. And watch our sermon videos on YouTube. To access the Children’s Messages on YouTube, click on “Playlists.”

We warmly invite you to worship with us and join our walk with God.

Are you looking for a church home? Our heartfelt desire is to embrace all people in the love of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. “Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.” (John 13:34-35)

The Mt. Olive congregation is made up of people who live throughout the greater Columbia area and the Midlands. Folks travel from as far as Lexington, Newberry, Elgin, and Orangeburg to worship each Sunday.

Visit us for worship this Saturday or Sunday and experience a service that focuses on worshiping the Triune God with the traditional liturgy of the Church, inspirational hymns, and Holy Communion.

 

Our mission is to grow in faith and love
by spreading the Word
of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
