Home About Worship Music and Arts Parish Life Learning Outreach News Contact

It’s rare to find a socially progressive church that keeps and cherishes traditional liturgy. But that’s the blend that draws worshipers from a wide area to Mount Olive’s doorstep in Midtown Minneapolis.

We describe ourselves as musical, liturgical and welcoming. By musical we mean to emphasize our reputation for congregational singing and organ playing. By liturgical we mean to identify ourselves with timeless rituals that are astonishingly powerful in today’s world. By welcoming we mean to underscore our openness to all comers. We cannot imagine Christ’s church as an exclusionary body. Neither can we imagine the Christian life as a solely private relationship. And so, we are compelled to serve others, near and far. In our serving we are imperfect. We are human. We stumble. We have as many questions as answers. But we lean on God’s grace and on each other. And that seems to give our parish—now entering its second century—a lasting strength.
