And whatever you do, in word or deed,
do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus,
giving thanks to God the Father through him.
– Colossians 3:17
We are entering an exciting new beginning in our ministry and mission at Mount Olive. Energizing programs are underway, with more planned for the coming months. Life at Mount Olive is full and rich. Members of all ages are growing in faith and discipleship. Our children are welcomed and nurtured. Neighbors and those in need are being served with love and grace. Worship is dynamic and meaningful.
All of these good things flow from the gifts of time, talent and treasure we share for the sake of our life together in Christ. Your gifts are essential to the continued richness of our ministry together. Now is the time when we ask you to make a pledge so that we can be sure that the ministries that are important to us are fully funded for maximum impact and growth in the coming year.
Our expenses have increased for 2017, primarily in the area of staffing. The cost of health care coverage has increased significantly. Other costs have increased, as well. Please prayerfully consider increasing your giving to help us keep up with increased costs. If you do not currently pledge, please consider making a commitment so that we can go forward with confidence that the resources we need will be available in the new year.
Mount Olive is a strong and committed congregation. Please show your support and commitment to Christ and the work of His church through your pledge.
