Mt. Olive Lutheran Church and School COVID-19 Update 11/20/20

Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God"

Colossians 3:16

Dear Sisters & Brothers in Christ,
Mount Olive Lutheran Church is conducting all services within the guidelines set forth earlier this week by Governor Reynolds (masks, hand washing or santizing, social distancing) and will continue to worship on Saturdays at 5 pm and Sundays at 9 am (with additional sanitizing after the Saturday service). The Communion schedule is the same as it was pre-pandemic: First and third Saturdays, and second and fourth Sundays, with the Lord's Supper at both services if there is a 5th Sunday in the month.

Please see my full letter to the congregation (11/20/20) including addiitional masking steps in our school, which is posted in our Olive Branch Newsletters list, linked here.

Your spiritual health is as important (if not more so) than your physical health. Feed, care for and protect your body during these times of increased community COVID-19 spread, and feed, care for and protect your soul against Satan and his agents who are bent on your eternal destruction. Worship with us in-person if you are able, or online if you are not.  Receive God's gifts: forgiveness, the Holy Spirit, saving faith, and eternal life. We look forward to seeing you soon.

May God continue to bless you all!

Pastor Mark Kleckner
