Through the educational Ministries at Mount Olive, it is our hope that people of all ages would learn and grow in the knowledge and love of Christ!

Explore the links above for information on our educational ministries, or read below for updates on our congregation-wide weekly Bible class!


Connecting Christ + The Congregation

Christian education for ALL AGES!

Gather with others of all ages + life stages, around God's Word and grow in faith together! The interactive structure will include digging into a weekly reading from God's Word, connecting the Small Catechism to daily life, and joining together in prayer and song!

Connections Summer Session

Starting on June 10, our summer session of Connections will continue on Wednesday evenings at 6:30 pm. Now that Sunday morning worship is resuming at regular worship times, gathering for class virtually on Wednesdays will allow the pastors to continue joining us! This summer we will be studying the Gospel of Mark. On the right you can download our participation guide as well as a resource for further study and reflection, written by our own Bill Cullen. 

Connections is a great time to be in the Word together as a faith family, and offers us adults a special opportunity to learn with the kids and youth as well. Each week has 5-6 sections of readings and reflections so that households may continue studying Mark during the week at home.


On Wednesdays, join us for class with the Zoom link below. We will continue with brief thoughts from the pastors, small group discussion in virtual break out rooms, and all-group conversation.

"Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and strangers, but fellow citizens with God’s people and also members of his household, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone. In him the whole building is joined together and rises to become a holy temple in the Lord. And in him you too are being built together to become a dwelling in which God lives by his Spirit." - Ephesians 2:19-22 (NIV)
