Trinity Lutheran CAmp registration is available online at: www.trinitylutherancamp.org/camps. As of today we are hopeful that we will have a Camp season this summer. Instead of our usualo, %75 deposit, we have lowered that to a $10 non-refundable registration fee whe you register your camper. In the event that your camp is cancelled due to the Covid-19, we will mail you an awesome 2020 camp t-shirt. See the www.trinitylutherancamp.org/camp for more information.
If the camp is opened we will offer a family camp on the weekend of June 19-21. Families will be able to assume the responsibility for the risk of staying together in cabins. We will inform our congregations about this as soon as possible. Kids camp may not be available this year. Montana District LCMS.
God’s Reign in Spain Newsletters from Pastor Warner and the April Montana Reflections fromt the district office are on the kiosk. Copies of both are on the informational wall next to the east sanctuary doors.
Sunday School has been canceled for the remainder of May. We look forward to seeing the children again this coming September. ~ Robin Z.

PLEASE READ ALL THE WAY TO THE END!
In light of the lifting of the shelter-in-place order today, Mount Olive will resume services on Sundays, starting April 26th at 9:00 am and Monday nights at 7:00 pm.
We are able to worship without a limit as to the maximum number of people in attendance as long as we can maintain appropriate social distancing. (Families already living in the same house do not have to distance.) We should have enough room to adequately do this as long as (and this may the the hardest part) you are willing to sit in a pew you may not be accustomed to. We will adjust as needed as Sunday morning unfolds. Please be patient and willing to move seats!
Please consider also, out of love for your neighbor, the suggestions from the governor’s office. If you are sick, have been in contact with someone who has the virus, or are in a high risk category, err on the side of caution and stay home and stay safe. During the phased rollback we will continue to livestream services and Pastor will offer communion during the week for those who desire it.
Plan on the service taking a little longer than usual. To not leave the elements for communion out longer than needed and to not handle and waste more than is needed we will take a count on Sunday morning of how many wafers and individual cups we will need and set up that morning. We will also wipe down the communion rail between each group and have fewer people at the rail each time to allow for social distancing.
Please plan on taking the hymnal you use Sunday home with you. This will eliminate us needing to wipe them all down, prevent others from potentially picking up germs from them, and allow you to use them during the week for family devotions.
Bible class will follow the service this Sunday and we will determine which space will best allow us to social distance; the fellowship hall or staying in the sanctuary.
Good news and Bible classes will also resume on Wednesdays starting next week, in the fellowship hall, to allow for adequate social distancing.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to call, email, or visit with Pastor McCall. Thank you all for your patience, prayers, and support these past weeks.
Looking forward to Sunday!
During this Corona Virus Covid-19 time, Pastor McCall will conduct service on Sundays with just a person to record the service and himself. Sunday Service audio will then be put on the Mount Olive website in full. In addition, audio cd’s will be available at the church east door on the following Monday of each Sunday Service for you to pick up during the week as you travel to and from your essential stops. Additionally, the “live” service can be participated in at 9 a.m. Sunday, or viewed thereafter at the same Facebook location: https://www.facebook.com/pg/MountOliveChurchBillings
Whether you listen or view online or pick up a cd, Pastor encourages you to set aside time each week to worship together as a family or as an individual.
