Often called the “prayer book of the Bible,” the Psalms teach us to express ourselves fully to a God who listens with compassion. Humble gratitude, soaring praise, anguished lament, bitter outrage, awe-filled wonder, and restored hope: all this, and more, is brought before God in the Psalms. Join the Mount Olivet pastors each Wednesday evening at the Conference & Retreat Center from June 30 through August 4 as they explore some of the Psalms they find most inspiring and resonant with their faith.
Begin each evening with fellowship and delicious food. Learn about the natural world around you and take home tips for enhancing the beauty of your own yard during a nature talk. Then gather together for midweek worship.
Limited bus transportation will be available from Minneapolis and 7500 York. Due to ongoing safety concerns and COVID-19 protocol, registration, bus reservations, and payment for each week should be made online through Realm at least 48 hours in advance.
Dinner $15. Bus Transportation $10.
