This fall at Mt Olive St Paul...

School Supply Drive & Fall Kickoff Party

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.
