Funerals

Mount Olivet Church is available to assist with all funeral preparations. During this most difficult time for families and friends, Mount Olivet is here to help arrange for a meaningful and thoughtful service. Funerals may be held at the Minneapolis campus in the main sanctuary, which accommodates up to 1300 people, or Serley Chapel, which accommodates 150 people, or at the West campus which holds 300 people.

During regular business hours, please contact Jonna Bundul at 612.767.2257 or jonnab@mtolivet.org. If arrangements are necessary over the weekend, families may call the pastor of their choice or contact the pastor on call.  This information is available by calling 612.926.7651 and following the prompts. 

We are available to assist in arranging for special music including an organist and a soloist. Other instrumentalists are available upon request. Refreshments following the service are also an option for a nominal fee depending on menu chosen. 

Please note - We are not able to accommodate requests for a Sunday funeral
at any of our locations.
