Mission Festival May 8, 2021 “We need classical Lutheran colleges . . . to promote genuine Christian culture in our homes, communities, and churches. We need the next generation of Lutherans to be prepared to fight the good fight of faith.” – from the Call for Support for Luther Classical College. The Board of Missions for Mount Olive Lutheran Church (MOLC) cordially invites you to join us at Mount Olive to learn more about and how to support Luther Classical College. The Reverend Dr. Christian Preus, pastor at Mount Hope Lutheran Church in Casper, WY, and Chairman of the Board of Regents for the soon-to-open Luther Classical College, Casper, Wyoming, will be presenting. Dr. Preus will preach during the Divine Service at 9:00 AM Sunday, May 8, 2022, and teach the Adult Bible Class afterward. Later the same day, at 5:00 PM, you are invited to reconvene at MOLC’s social room for a potluck meal. After the meal, Dr. Preus will present an update on the work in progress on Luther Classical College. Everyone is welcome, so mark your calendar today!
