On Sunday mornings from September through May, we meet at 9:45 a.m. (between the 8:30 and 11 a.m. services) in room 504 for Devos and Donuts. This is a laid-back Bible study for 6-12th graders in which we kick back in our big couch room, discuss the Bible, and eat delicious donuts. After Devos and Donuts, we encourage our students to join us at the 11 a.m. service.
Those in 6-12th grade are invited to our Youth programming on Wednesday Nights, 7–8:30 p.m., throughout the school year. During this time, we play games, hear Bible teaching, and then break into small groups for further discussion. When students attend our Wednesday night group, they will learn from one of the four Gospel accounts of Jesus, the foundational and core distinctions of Christianity, and the story of God at work in the world. Wednesdays are also a great night to get to know our amazing adult mentors, play, enjoy friends, and think more about faith.
Our goal at Mt O Youth is to see every interested student paired with a fantastic adult mentor. We think it’s very important that students have someone further along the faith journey to watch and learn from. We kick off new mentoring relationships annually beginning in January.
Though we have two Sunday Worship services here at Mt. Olympus, we find that most students attend at 11 a.m., so we encourage students to worship with us then. Come sit with us in the first few rows on the right-hand side any Sunday.
We are very involved in mission work and take teams of students all over the city, country, and world to serve, give, and show the love of God. From serving the homeless in Los Angeles to working in orphanages in Kenya, we do our best to go out into all the world in the name of Jesus Christ.
