MOUNT OLIVE DEVOTIONAL RESOURCE FAIR:  Sunday -- September 24th -- Mount Olive Narthex -- (Prior to and following all worship services.)  If you have ever wondered about what to use for personal/family devotions or resources to encourage your faith, plan on perusing the Resource Fair.  Browse through books and other resources, including online, which have positively impacted faith in Jesus Christ.  There will be resources available for all ages.  Remember, another way the congregation works with you is by providing weekly “God’s Story, Our Story” bulletin inserts which include daily Bible readings and a structure to guide daily devotions.  These are also available at the Mount Olive website: http://www.mountolive-elca.net/.
