Welcome to the ministry of Olivet Lutheran Church. We are a community of faith located in Sylvania, Ohio (a suburb of Toledo) putting faith into action to show God's love to the world.
We hope that the welcome we offer you is one that looks and feels like a welcome that comes to you from God. Whenever or however you choose to be with us, may you know that God loves you and offers you abundant life here and now.
Whether at worship, through educational programs, packaged in a bag from our food bank, in fellowship, through a concert, conversation, or prayer, there is an open invitation for you to participate. Your presence makes our community richer and fuller.
We're glad you are visiting! Together we are engaged in the worship and work of God - gathering people and equipping them to serve, so that we might make Christ known as hope for the world.
