Welcome to Mount Olive Lutheran Church


COVID-19 Update

Mount Olive is having Worship Services!

Social distancing and sanitation procedures will be followed. As we are continuing to curb the spread of coroanvirus, our leadership is strongly recommending that you wear your masks to protect those in the congregation who are more vulnerable. There is overflow seating in the fellowship hall where all worship services are streamed. For further protection, we have added iWave air purification devices to the HVAC in the sanctuary.

NEW: On the last Sunday of each Month, beginning October 25th, there is a new worship service at 3:00 PM where face masks will be required. 

Adult Bible Class will resumed August 23rd, 9:15 AM, in the Fellowship Hall. Midweek Bible Study will resumed on Wednesday, September 2nd at either 1:30 PM or 7:00 PM. Other classes and activities remain canceled at this time.

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.
