Meet Teer Hardy
New Associate Pastor
We will be welcoming Teer and his family on their first Sunday at Mount Olivet on July 2. Teer is married to Allison, his high school sweetheart (but they didn’t meet until college) and they are proud parents of a rambunctious three-year-old son, Camden, named after the baseball stadium. Teer was born and raised in Maryland, has a Bachelor’s Degree in Criminal Justice from West Virginia Wesleyan College and a Masters of Theological Studies from Wesley Theological Seminary. He will be returning to Wesley in the Fall to complete a Masters of Divinity. He is interested in meeting God where the divine intersects with everyday life, whether in a coffee shop, pub, or park trail. He is the co-founder and host of the Crackers and Grape Juice podcast and also maintains a blog (teerhardy.com) where he engages theological concepts with the practicality of everyday living.
Where In The World Is Flat Jesus?
What is Flat Jesus? Flat Jesus was created as a way to keep our church connected as we enter the Summer travel season. Get your Flat Jesus this Sunday, color him in, and take a picture with him wherever you go. You can also get your Flat Jesus laminated at the Connecting Point after any of our worship services. You’ll love taking Flat Jesus out to dinner with you, to the beach, to hang with your grandchildren, and when you meet new friends all over town! It’s an amazing adventure. Take Flat Jesus with you and see what happens. Click the link below to print out your Flat Jesus. They are also available at the Connecting Point. Share your photos on Facebook and Instagram using the hashtag #FlatJesusMTO or email them to Linnea Carlson | firstname.lastname@example.org . Check out the grid in the Connecting Point to see all the places Flat Jesus has been.
Haiti Mission Trip
Imagine building and installing a clean water unit for a family in Haiti whose closest source of water is miles away or helping with hands-on learning in classrooms with few resources. These are just two of the tasks we’ll be doing this September 17-25 when our next Mount Olivet mission team returns to Haiti. Are you feeling called to serve? Learn more about our upcoming planning meeting (date to be determined).
