Jesus, Hope of The World

Advent Offering

UMCOR

United methodist committee on relief

UMCOR is the humanitarian relief and development arm of The United Methodist Church. UMCOR comes alongside those who suffer from natural or human-caused disasters - be it famine, hurricane, war, flood, fire or other events—to alleviate suffering and to be a source of help and hope for those left most vulnerable. They provide relief, response, and long-term recovery grants when these events overwhelm a community’s ability to recover on their own. This year, your gifts to the Advent Offering will help support hurricane relief in The Bahamas.

Youth Missions

mexico | summer 2020

This year, the Mount Olivet Youth Mission Program is a direct beneficiary of your gifts to the Advent Offering. The youth are taking an international mission trip in Summer 2020. The location is yet to be determined, but will likely include home repair and community service. We ask that you prayerfully consider donating your gifts, time, or resources as we seek to follow where Christ leads us.

Community Assistance

serving low-income families in arlington

Mount Olivet’s Community Assistance Ministry takes place on the third Saturday of every month and is helping the lives of women, men, and children who are struggling to make ends meet. The Community Assistance Ministry provides clothing, groceries, toiletries, a hot meal, health screenings and Giant gift cards to over 250 guests each month. The ministry would not be possible without the ongoing financial and volunteer support from our congregation and surrounding community, especially as the number of guests we serve has grown over the past year. The ministry positively affects not just the lives of our guests, but also the lives of more than 425 volunteers who have found a place to serve others. The volunteers work together to provide a safe place in our church and offer fellowship to our guests that they may not experience in their day-to-day lives.

Advent Study

Advent Begins In The Dark

Wednesdays December 4, 11 and 18

6:30 PM in Room L5

Join Pastor Teer to study and discuss essays from Fleming Rutledge's book Advent: The Once and Future Coming of Jesus Christ. Books will not need to be purchased. Pastor Teer will provide essays to participants and facilitate reflection. Additionally, we will use a few videos. We will read, study, pray and consider how Advent prepares us not just to remember Christ's birth but also is a season when we remember Christ promised to come again.
