Mount Olive is a confessional Lutheran congregation of the Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod. We are not ashamed of our Lutheran faith, which centers all that we believe and do squarely on Christ and Him crucified for us. Because the LORD is present for us in Word and Sacrament, we conduct worship reverently, using the best liturgical traditions of the historic Christian Church which boldly proclaim this Gospel faith. Our congregation regularly uses services, rites and hymns from the Lutheran Service Book. At Mount Olive, we preach Law and Gospel, we teach the Bible, and we serve our neighbor locally, regionally, and around the world.
Six Things Every Lutheran Should Know
The season of Lent historically has been a time of disciplined learning and preparation, often with an emphasis on catechetical instruction. In the early church, the forty days of Lent was a time of catechesis for those preparing for baptism on Easter Day. During this season of Lent we will be meditating on the six chief part of Luther’s Small Catechism. These fundamentals of our faith are good to return to and meditate on, for in the Catechism we find the whole summary of Scripture. Even Luther was never “done with” the catechism. He encouraged all Christians to return to it and recite it daily.
Catechism resources will be available as we are encouraged to memorize the six chief parts of the Catechism. We will also be singing one of Luther’s catechetical hymns each week. Join us!
