Pastor Cornils Goes Live on WCCO Radio
Following Rally Sunday

WCCO’s JEARLYN STEELE asked PASTOR CORNILS how Mount Olivet is continuing to get people to church today. “We work hard to make it welcoming, time sensitive, and meaningful for the people who come to church,” said Pastor Cornils. “People know what to expect and that is why we have a community unlike any other,” added Pastor Cornils. Pastor Cornils also mentioned a hallmark of Mount Olivet’s legacy is focusing on youth, despite being traditional. “We also have a compelling youth program,” said Pastor Cornils, “It’s why we have 40 high schools represented in our confi­rmation class and 250 high school kids singing in our choirs today. We truly have a community unlike any other. We recognize the church is much bigger than any of us and it takes all of us to represent God.”

Pastor Hammersten Dishes on Hot Dish with Food & Wine

“We always have had food and gathering as an important part of our ministry,” said PASTOR HAMMERSTEN, “so when Food &Wine magazine called us looking for church ladies, we said of course!” Pastor Hammersten was joined by Mount Olivet members who regularly participate in extending hospitality and meals to our members and the community. As the Homebound Communion & Luncheon coordinator ANN LABREE works events where homebound members are invited to come to church for worship and a time for fellowship over a meal. Regarding the Food &Wine gathering, Ann said, “It was a fun experience. I’m not much for cameras, but the food was great!” In addition to Pastor Hammersten and Ann LaBree, several other “church ladies” joined in the event with Food &Wine: Amity Circle cooks JUNE KROOG and JANE PHILLIPS who bring meals to members in need, Pastoral Care director ANDREA BROWN, kitchen coordinator JUDY MAYER, and Mount Olivet member JOYCE MOONEY. “What a super fun day!” said Pastor Hammersten in a post on Facebook. “Church ladies tasting (really, really yummy!) hot dish by James Beard Award winning chef GAVIN KAYSEN at Spoon and Stable restaurant – who is as nice and kind as he is talented!” The article is expected to be out in January

Mount Olivet School of Music Featured at Yale's Institute of Sacred Music

BEVERLY CLAFLIN and Mount Olivet School of Music coordinator REBECCA MASON will head to Yale University’s Institute of Sacred Music (ISM) later this month. Claflin and Mason went to Yale earlier this year to share the structure and programs of the Mount Olivet School of Music. As a result of what they shared, the Mount Olivet School of Music was selected as one of three music programs nationally to lead a workshop on church-affiliated music schools. A recent Yale news story stated the workshop is being created “in hopes that this initiative will lead to the establishment of more high quality, parish based music programs for the benefit of future generations.”Dr. Claflin said, “The value of networking with other music school directors became clear to everyone present at the ISM meeting that day, and we agreed that the Institute could serve as a valuable educational resource for other churches that might be interested in starting or expanding a music instruction program.”
