Happy Father's Day
Happy Father's Day to all of the father's who share in our worship. We thank God for you and for your presence in the lives of our families. May God bless you with strength, wisdom and courage as you lead and provide for those whom God has entrusted to you.

 

Last Chance For Directory Pictures   
If you missed your picture appointment or if the dates and times didn’t work for you, you still have an opportunity to have your picture/s included in our church directory.  There is a church in the community taking pictures until the end of June, and all you have to do is pick up a card with our churches sitting number and make a call.  For more information and to get the card, please come to the Media Room after service.

God's children need our nurturing in his growth

Parents, Adults, and Teens if you love working with children we need you. The nursery needs volunteers during 8:00am and 10:45am and 9:45am Sunday services, and 6:50pm during Wednesday evening bible study. Anyone interested in serving in our Ministry is invited to contact Ms. JoAnn Dobbins for more information. 

 

2016 Bible Institute
The Mt. Olivet Bible Institute will be held July 18, 2016 through July 22, 2016.  The subject for this year is Money Matter. In a world where different opinions are raised about how to handle money and financial matters the question is - what does God have to say to the believer about his or her stewardship?  If you need solid biblical information about: how to manage your money, get out of debt, the truth about pay day loans this course is for you. Class begins at 7:00 p.m. each night. 

 

Shelter Ministry Volunteers  

Thank You! Thank You!  This May we were able to open MTO doors, because of you, to serve the homeless  in our community.  During that time we provided a safe and welcoming place for 11 families. This small window of time provided 484 beds for our families.  Your  willingness to serve, kindness, and generosity to the families has impacted the families we served.  Again, thank you for your support.   Jody Hickman

 

Membership

The bible teaches us that membership in the body of Christ is a privilege granted to us from God.  Therefore membership in the local church is to be taken seriously.   It is the policy of the Mt. Olivet Church that when members have been absent for 90 days that they are moved to inactive status. 

 

 

The church is aware that there are situations which occur that will prevent a member from attending, and in those situations it is the responsibility of the member (or family member) to contact the church and share that information.  In order to be removed from the inactive list a member must present themselves for reinstatement/restoration.  Reinstatement can take place during worship and on Wednesdays during bible study.  Members who have been inactive should not resume participation in a ministry until they have been reinstated.    

 

All members should be aware that any member who is inactive is required to pay for the services of the church (funerals and weddings).
