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.
This fall at Mt Olive St Paul...
Saturday, September 7 @ 6-8pm, lot at the corner of Almond & Pascal
Help provide school supplies for local students in need at Hmong College Prep Academy while enjoying some community building. Bring the kids' bikes and trikes for a chalk "racetrack" in the lot, along with some other family-friendly activities and neighbor-meeting.
Fall Kickoff Worship
Sunday, September 8 @ 9am
We’ll worship our Savior and kick off a series on Time, because time is one of our greatest commodities. As a kid, time never seemed to move fast enough. As an adult, we never seem to have enough time. In this series we'll examine how God’s gift of time can be best utilized.
Sunday School Begins
Sunday, September 8 @ 10:30am
All kids ages 0-14 are invited to join us for Sunday school on Sunday mornings from 10:30am - 11:30am and participate in a variety of learning activities meant to nurture their faith and grow roots to become a lifelong disciple of Jesus. Learn more at mtolivestpaul.org/sundayschool.
