Operation Christmas Child at Mount Olive

For more information contact:
Mary Scarborough 612.867.7783  

Mount Olive is again partnering with Samaritans Purse for OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD. The plan is to collect shoebox gifts to reach an additional 11 million children in more than 100 countries. Each gift includes a Jesus message for a child.  

We have OCC shoeboxes for Mount Olive friends and family that want to fill a box. Last year Mount Olive collected over 1,500 shoeboxes. Thanks to all who helped. We would love to receive more boxes this year, maybe 2000! 

If you would prefer to donate items to be filled in a box instead of filling a whole box, you are welcome to place your items in the basket by the display table. 

NEW! Build your shoebox ONLINE without leaving the comfort of your home. Head on over to and click the green box, “Start Packing.”

A November to Remember (or Forget)

by Pastor Jon Haakana

November 2020: a month to remember, or one to forget? For the past seven months, we have all been living through some of the most trying times in recent history for our nation, our world, and for many of us, our individual lives and families. I have heard people say, “We will always remember 2020,” while hearing others say, “I just want to forget 2020!”

But a memorable November could be true for you for a number of reasons: shooting the buck of your dreams during this year’s deer hunting season; a special family event or personal achievement; or a memorable Thanksgiving dinner with your family.

I do want to encourage you to always remember one thing, not just in November, but every day of the year: Remember all that God has done for us in Christ our Lord!

“I will remember the deeds of the Lord; yes, I will remember your miracles of long ago.” (Psalm 77:11)

“Remember Jesus Christ, raised from the dead, descended from David.” (Timothy 2:8)

God made this promise to Joshua and the Israelite's and they crossed into the unchartered territory of the Promised Land: 

God said in Joshua 1:9, “Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”

During this time of COVID-19

Even as our circumstances are changing rapidly, we know God is the same yesterday, today, and always. Take comfort in that, friends! The staff of Mount Olive will continue to work daily to do the work God has called us to do. Therefore, we encourage you to continue to be generous in your giving.
