Seeking Jesus. Sharing His Love. Building Community.
No matter how long we’ve known Jesus, we still seek him—striving to better know him and his comforting promises.
We seek a richer connection to Jesus in his Word, through his holy Supper, and through prayer. And the wonder is this: as we seek him, he seeks us. He takes hold of us. He fills our hearts with his Spirit. And he guides our daily lives.
Sharing His Love.
We invest in the lives of others by taking the love that Jesus shows us and passing that love along.
We do this through our words and acts of service—not just with our families, friends, and fellow believers, but with our local community and the world at large.
As we seek Jesus and share his love, we grow closer as a community that invites others to do the same.
In getting to know one another, sharing our lives and faith-journeys, and supporting each other, we gain an amazing community that gives us an incredible sense of belonging.
But we don’t want to limit our community to the sanctuary; we want to continue our mission in the neighborhood, in the greater Twin Cities, and in the world.
Learning and growing together.
If you're new to faith, questioning, or revisiting a faith you may not have considered since childhood: we know it can be hard to visit a church—we've been there. At Mt Olive, we are all learning and growing together—asking questions and continually seeking the truths of God's Word.
Committed to the truths of God's Word.
Learning about God and how he loves you, protects you, plans for you, and wants to draw close to you is a life-long process. And this learning happens best in community, gathered around the Word of God. We are deeply committed to the truths he reveals to us there.
Supporting each other.
We believe it's important for people to grow in faith as they do life together. In our Small Groups, we get to know one another and encourage each other to be all that God has called us to be. Supporting each other only deepens our understanding of how God is working in our lives.
Come as you are.
Visit us at the corner of Almond and Pascal, right near the State Fairgrounds. No matter where you are in your faith-journey, we invite you to come as you are and join us as we continue to learn about who we are, who God is, and what he's done for us.

Trunk or Treat
Saturday, October 26 @ 4-6pm // the Lot
A fun and safe trick-or-treating experience for kids in our parking lot. They can get candy in their costumes from decorated car trunks - it’s like hitting 20 houses in 10 minutes! So start designing your trunk! And if you'd like to donate candy (sometimes it gets expensive...), so people can participate by only decorating their car, please bring to the office any time between now and the event. This will also be the last day to donate coats and other warm items for Mental Health Resources! // FACEBOOK EVENT
Sept 26 / Oct 10 & 24 / Nov 7 & 21 @ 6:30-7:30pm // Como Lakeside Pavilion
Join us every other Thursday starting September 12 through November 21 to be outside and move. Runners, joggers, and walkers - both adults and kids - are welcome to join in on a lap or two (or three...) around the lake. Any questions, please contact Kathleen. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
