Auto Theft Youth Prevention Program

The St. Paul Black Interdenominational Ministerial Alliance (The Alliance) is working with the Ramsey County Attorney’s office to stop auto theft.  The number of youths involved are a small number, but they need our help to stop this behavior. 

 

The Alliance invites you to get involved by participating in a restorative justice circle.  As a community we owe it to our young people to be the first point of contact after they have broken the law.  Therefore, we need volunteers to share in the circles and meet with these young people.  To assist, please visit this link, https://forms.gle/7wvbKMvgfsoKFx8XA  to learn more about the program and receive information.  We really do need you!            

Vaccinations

Vaccinations will take place at Mt. Olivet on December 16.  The time is 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., no reservation is required.  

 

 

Sunday Worship Link

Good news.  You can access the worship link on the Mt. Olivet Church website.  The link will be active Friday through Saturday evening when worship is open to the church family.  There are still plenty of seats in the sanctuary – come join us for in person worship.

 

Community Circles for Restorative Justice

The Mt. Olivet Church in partnership with the African American Leadership Council and the Ramsey County Attorney’s office is working to reduce the number of cars being stolen.  Unfortunately, the young people who are involved in this crime often are African American.  Therefore, the community has to act!  

 

What we need.  We need community members to sit with these young people to discuss how their behavior impacts the community.  The conversation will also include a conversation on how the young person can make things right with the community.  To help in this effort, training will be provided, and each person will be required to go through the training process. 

 

There are two options at this point.  The first is we can be afraid and talk about how bad our young people are or we can help our young people make a positive change.  I trust we will choose to help them make a positive change and that is why we need you.

 

If you are interested in being part of the restorative circle process or need more information, please contact Pastor Thomas.
