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
At Mount Olive we are excited about stewardship because we are people who have been blessed with an abundance of gifts and resources. Our congregation provides very well for all our needs regarding our programs, building and staff. Because of this, we can focus our stewardship efforts on raising dollars to be shared with others. In 2018 we are praying for increased giving to support the following:
- $3000 to fund an after-school program for at-risk children at the Gage East Empowerment Center.
- $2000 to provide support for the Refuge, an outreach ministry of Next Chapter Ministry to teens who have been impacted by crime in Rochester.
- $10,000 to support our companions in ministry in the Lutheran Church of Colombia (IELCO). Specifically we want to provide support for the education ministries of IELCO, with grants to poor students enrolled in Lutheran schools, financial help for pastors studying in the School of Theology in Bogota, and monthly support for our missionaries in Colombia, Katie and Curtis Kline.
- $10,000 to increase our mission support to the global ministry of the ELCA.
