Parenting in 2018 is anything but simple. Schedules and commitments and possessions fill our lives to overflowing, but that isn't God's plan for families. As parents, we are called to be present with our children, help them become all that they have been created to be, and to make sure that they have a childhood. Join Marilyn Sharpe, parent, parent educator, and Mount Olivet member, to explore Simplicity Parenting: Using the Extraordinary Power of Less to Raise Calmer, Happier, and More Secure Kids. Intrigued about what this could mean for the children you love ... and for you? Plan to explore what it would mean to streamline your home environment, establish rituals and routines that build connection and diminish stress, schedule breaks in the torrent of doing just to be together, and scale back media, while replacing it with parental involvement. You and your child will be glad you did.

So we can plan appropriately, please register! Come enjoy hearing from a different Mount Olivet Pastor each week as together they lead us into the book of James, which encourages us as Christians to "be doers of the word, and not merely hearers" (1:22). Feeling James put too much emphasis on "good works," Martin Luther once called James a "book of straw," but later came to appreciate it. Come and learn more—and bring friends. All are welcome!

This heart-wrenching tale based on the true-life adoption scandal perpetrated by Georgia Tann in the late 30s and early 40s, is at the same time a powerful story of sibling love and human triumph. As the Shreveport Times notes, "It’s a great book-club read, one of those books that teaches you something, gives you lots to discuss and even more to think about. . . ."

What's Sp Special About "Lutheran" Anyway?

                    WEST: Tues April 10 - May 1, 7-8:30pm, Fellowship Hall

Didn’t grow up Lutheran? Been a very l-o-n-g time since Confirmation? Or, simply wondering what’s unique about being Lutheran, anyway? If any of these apply, this 4-week look at “Lutheran basics” with Senior Pastor David Lose is for you! You’ll leave with a deeper understanding of what makes Lutheranism unique and a greater appreciation for how Lutherans understand God’s love for and relationship with us. If you have copies of the Small Catechism and/or Dr. Lose’s book Making Sense of Martin Luther, please bring them. If not, copies will be available for your use. Note: A similar class will be repeated at the Minneapolis Campus at a later date.
