Mount Olive invites members and friends of the congregation to ensure that future generations will benefit from our ministries.
The Mount Olive Lutheran Church Foundation
Since its inception, the Mount Olive foundation has distributed more than $150,000 to support various parish programs, including:
- youth trips
- stained-glass window restoration
- chapel-lounge renovation
- building repair
- neighborhood ministries
The foundation was established in 1972 as an endowment. It is a legal entity separate from the church and has its own articles of incorporation, bylaws, and board of directors.
The Christus Rex Society
The foundation’s Christus Rex Society, named for Christ the King, collects gifts of stock, cash, mutual fund shares, or deferred gifts from wills, trusts, annuities, insurance policies, or investment funds for work in the congregation, now and into the future.
The eternal flame burning in the chancel was placed by the society to honor the memory of the Rev. Herbert J. Mueller, a pastor of Mount Olive in the late 1950s and early 1960s.
