Living The Message

 

What is Living the Message?

Living the Message is designed to build vibrant faith in the members and friends of Mount Olivet Lutheran Church. It is an all-congregation, Bible-focused movement to make Bible discovery accessible, convenient, and welcoming while creating fellowship and friendship among participants.

  • Once a month, October through May, small groups, usually 8-10 people, meet to talk about a section of a book of the Bible and enjoy fellowship together. This year, groups will focus on the Gospel of Mark.

  • Groups are based on neighborhoods, common interests, or simply the convenience of a meeting place and time. They 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 texts, prepare for discussion, and attend the small group discussions.

  • To assist in understanding the biblical text and prepare for discussion, participants purchase the Book of Faith Learner Guide for Mark at a cost of $10.

  • Each month, a pastor will introduce that month’s chosen reading 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 biblical texts being explored.
