Holy Week Service  

Holy Week services will be held at the Mt. Olivet Church beginning April 3rd through April 6th. Worship will begin at noon each day and will last for approximately one hour. Plan now to be part of this great worship experience.


101 st  Anniversary Giving

If you were not able to present your offering over the last two Sundays, please make a special effort to present your gift on the 101st Church Anniversary!  At Mt. Olivet we do not ask for a particular amount on special days.  Instead, we ask our family to give sacrificially.  For the 101st Church Anniversary please prayerfully consider giving sacrificially, which means giving over and above your usual offering.  If you are not a tither, please tithe.  Try God and see what God will do.

When Not To Get Back To Church

It is cold and flu season again and that means we must be on guard as a worshipping community.  Because we value each and every member we make this request,, if you are not feeling well, please stay home.  There is a certain something about being present in the sanctuary but please do not expose your brothers and sisters to a virus, or cold and flu.


Here are Mt. Olivet masks are optional, but please feel free to wear a mask if you so choose.  Should someone choose to not shake hands or hug, do not be offended.  Please respect the wishes of your sister or brother and know they are trying to reduce the chances of an infection.  Let’s operate under the old saying: it’s better to be safe than sorry.
