Key Verse:

“If you turn back your foot from the Sabbath, from doing your pleasure on my holy day, and call the Sabbath a delight and the holy day of the Lord honorable; if you honor it, not going your own ways, or seeking your own pleasure, or talking idly then you shall take delight in the Lord, and I will make you ride on the heights of the earth; I will feed you with the heritage of Jacob your father, for the mouth of the Lord has spoken.” (Isaiah 58:13-14 (ESV))

Because It’s What Families Do!
By Pastor Jon Haakana

When Rachel was still living at home, the running joke had to do with the fact that it seemed like I wasn’t always in the loop on what was happening with school, with her teams, and her friends. It seemed Mom knew, but I didn’t have a clue! So, I used to say, “You gals need to publish a newsletter so I know what’s going on!”

Well, that’s really what this publication is; a family newsletter so everyone in the family knows what’s going on in our church. So, I would like you to know about a couple of things going on in our church family during the month of September.

1) Our first monthly “Family Meeting.” While this is NOT an officially called congregation meeting, the staff and MMC would like to invite all our Mount Olive church family, as well as other interested parties, to come to our first monthly “Family Meeting” on Sunday, September 10 following our late service, starting at approximately at 10:45 AM in the Worship Center. This 45-60 minute meeting will include a) a financial update, b) details of plan to address our financial issues both in the short and long term, c) a time for questions and answers, and d) a time for worship and prayer. There will be activities for the children during the meeting. Family meetings will be held on the 2nd Sunday of each month. Hope to see all the family on the 10th!
