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.”

Those Lazy, Hazy, Crazy Days of Summer

by Pastor Jon Haakana

You probably have to be my vintage (age) or older to remember or to have heard that song. First recorded in 1962, it was popularized in the United States by Nat King Cole in 1963. The lyrics go, “Roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer. You’ll wish that summer could always be here.

”Flash forward to 2020 and we would probably agree that these summer days are surely “crazy.” But, I’m also guessing that you don’t want this summer to “always be here.” COVID-19 has changed so many things. Circumstances and how we need to react to them as families and as a church family changes weekly, even daily.

We praise God that we have a Savior who is always there, who is consistent and His love and mercy towards us is always the same. “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.” (Hebrews 13:8 NIV)


More from our Monthly Newsletter

But the gift is not like the trespass. For if the many died by the trespass of the one man, how much more did God's grace and the gift that came by the grace of the one man, Jesus Christ, overflow to the many!

Romans 5:15 NIV

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.

Vacation Bible School

Rocky Railway

Jesus Power Pulls us Through

Postponed to 2021

Due to the unfortunate, unknown, and unpredictable nature of Covid-19, many of our “normal” activities are not and cannot be “normal”.

Families are varied in how they are reacting to this virus.Some are ready to just get everything back to what was planned and some are still hunkered down at home.

Out of respect for this uncertainty, we will be postponing our 2020 VBS until next year.

We look forward to providing your family with the Vacation Bible School experience that you are accustomed to in June of 2021. 

See you then!

Hang tight while we look up scheduled events...
