Midweek Summer Worship

A summer tradition at Mount Olivet Conference & Retreat Center, Midweek Summer Worship is an opportunity to enjoy fellowship, fun nature talks, and inspirational worship. This year, we are bringing that opportunity to you! We will share a recorded worship service and nature talk here every Wednesday from June 17 to August 5.

Join Mount Olivet Lutheran Church pastors as they share “Words of Hope” and reflections on bible passages that help them find, understand, and share hope.
