Minnesota Twins Fans All Aboard!
Jump on board the Mount Olive bus to see the Twins take on the Chicago White Sox on Friday, May 24! We have reserved 55 seats in the lower deck and a coach bus which will leave Mount Olive at 4:15 pm that day and return at the end of the game. The seats are at field level so there are no steps to access the seats. The cost for the ticket and bus is $53/person. A special bonus is that May 24 is Joe Mauer Bobblehead Night, so you could go home with a special souvenir. Guests are more than welcome. Sign-up and get your ticket order envelope at the entry way table. The deadline is May 3rd.
The sign outside of Mount Olive says, “Visitors Expected!” We mean this. We expect you, which means we are prepared to greet you and welcome you, no matter who you are. Our facility is completely accessible to all. Our welcome statement says it best:We trust that God calls Mount Olive Lutheran Church to a ministry of reconciliation. We embrace as a gift the diversity of our neighborhood and the world, and we extend God’s hospitality by welcoming, hearing, and treasuring:
|All gender identities and sexual orientations||All races and ethnicities||All ages and abilities|
|All economic statuses and education levels||All faith journeys and personal histories|
We are also an unapologetically Lutheran community of faith. This means:
- Our theology is centered in the life and death of Jesus Christ.
- We are part of a long line of historic churches which celebrate infant baptism and weekly Holy Communion.
- The Word of God is the norm and basis for our life together.
We are also part of one particular group of Lutherans – the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. Through this group we are networked with thousands of other congregations, mission sites, social service agencies, and educational institutions that live out the faith of Jesus Christ in similar ways.
We would love to have you join us for worship on a weekend. Our communion table is open to all as God draws you. Please come. If you like, you may even want to stay for coffee, introduce yourself, and strike up a conversation.
We believe Christ calls each person to some kind of ministry. We also believe that our lives are enriched when we do ministry together. You are welcome to explore your calling in this community of God’s people.
