Living The Message


What is Living the Message?

Living the Message is part of Mount Olivet’s Center for Faith in Life, a program designed to build vibrant faith in the members and friends of Mount Olivet Lutheran Church. Living the Message, the first initiative of the new program, is an all-congregation, Bible-focused movement to make Bible discovery accessible, convenient, and welcoming.

  • Once a month, October through May, small groups of 8-10 will meet to talk about a book of the Bible and enjoy fellowship with others.
  • Groups will be based on neighborhoods, common interests, or simply the convenience of a meeting place and time. They will meet in homes, coffee shops, church spaces, or wherever works best for the group.
  • Members commit to one group for eight monthly gatherings and agree to read the assigned books and attend the small group discussions.
  • A small group discussion guide and notes from the pastor’s overview will be available on this webpage.
  • Each month, a pastor will teach that month’s chosen book of the Bible for those who agree to be discussion facilitators and anyone else who is interested. Facilitators are expected to be well prepared, but not expected to be experts on the book of the Bible being explored.

Living the Message: Pastors’ Introductions
Whether or not you participate in a Living the Message small group, you are welcome to attend the pastors’ introductions to each month’s chosen book of the Bible.
