Mt. Olive UMC serves community through "Church Without Walls" Sunday

9/25/2012

Mt. Olive UMC (Central District) had "Church Without Walls" on Sunday September 9, 2012.  During the worship hour, instead of gathering in the sanctuary, the congregation went out into the Mt. Live community and did a variety of acts of service.

The acts of service ot the community ranged from going to Walmart and returning carts to the shopping cart bin to picking up trash at a local park to visiting a local nursing home to handing out Bibles in a local neighborhood to doing yard work for a family that had experienced recent hardships. 

Prior to going out into the community, the congregation joined together for a commissioning worship service and celebrated Holy Communion. Following the Church Without Walls hour they returned to the church building for a catered meal  that provided time for fellowship and sharing their experiences.
