Mount Olive's Daily Schedule


Be Not Afraid

by Pastor Jon Haakana

We have been struggling through this latest pandemic for six months now, but we continue with new challenges each and every week, or even every day. God wants to meet you, right now, in whatever is weighing on your heart in these tumultuous times full of uncertainties.

In what seemed like overnight, our worlds were suddenly turned upside down. We may continue to have fears about our jobs, our finances, our future. We’re concerned about health—what if I get this virus? What if someone I love gets this? Plans have had to be changed, events postponed and some of us continue to wonder if there will be enough toilet paper or paper towels.

On top of all of that the one place we turn to in times of trouble does not feel comfortable or safe to some of us. Our doors at church are open, but only half of those who normally attend are coming at this time.

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.
