Welcome to Mount Olive Lutheran Church

 

COVID-19 Update

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: Mount Olive is continuing with In-Person Worship. THE SATURDAY, 5:00 PM WORSHIP SERVICE is 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. 

As we are continuing to curb the spread of coroanvirus, our leadership continues to strongly recommend that you wear your face-coverings any time you are at the church 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.

CHILDREN’S SUNDAY SCHOOL meets at 9:15 AM. – Children ages 2-11, your class will return to inside at 9:15 AM, upstairs in the children’s classrooms.

MIDDLE SCHOOL CLASS meets outside behind the preschool area, 9:15 AM. High Schoolers, please join the adult class in the fellowship hall, 9:15 AM. (A few of you have been attending since before the pandemic.)

Adult and Confirmation classes will continue to be held Sundays at 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.
