Have a safe and restful vacation


Summer Worship Attire
Please feel free to come for worship dressed in comfortable summer outfits that are appropriate for worship. Always remember that "come as you are" is not a statement that applies to how we look -  it applies to the state of our souls. Let us honor the Lord and the Lord's house in our choice of attire! Please remember that with the addition of the ceiling fans, the sanctuary is cooler.

Fellowship Meal

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).
