Everything Happening at Mount Olivet Right Now

Youth Mission Play | Arrivals and Departures

Remove your shoes and put your change in the tray—join us for comedic people-watching at the airport with Jim and Jane Jeffries’ Arrivals and Departures! Piloted by the Mount Olivet Players and Keegan Theatre. “Flights” (shows) depart January 31, February 1, 7, and 8 at 7:30 PM and February 9 at 2:00 PM. Pre-performance dinner will be available at 6:00 PM on February 1 at $15/adult and $10/child.


Admission to the play is free, but donations collected during the show support the Mount Olivet youth’s summer mission trips. Get your boarding passes online and in the Gathering Space beginning January 5.

Caretakers of God's Creation

In order to be a Green Church, Mount Olivet needs to fulfill requirements in five categories: Worship, Discipleship, Stewardship, Evangelism, and Mission. Examples from the Worship category are the scripture, prayers and hymns we regularly include related to creation. If you have participated in the annual Blessing of the Animals around St. Francis Day or attended our Live Nativity service, you have participated in worship that celebrates creation. Our bulletins upstairs are printed on recycled, acid free paper and in The Way are electronic. These are among the seamless ways that creation care is woven into worship at Mount Olivet.

Exercise Class

Did you know that there is a Mount Olivet group that exercises in the social hall early on Monday, Wednesday and Friday?  Please consider joining us at 5:45 AM on these mornings. We workout for an hour. You are home by 7:15 AM and in the office on time. We support each other in maintaining a healthy lifestyle. The group ranges in age from 49 to 75 years, but younger or older are welcome. Several of our members have lost weight and kept it off, but exercise, not weight loss is our focus.  Work out with us for a year and we promise, you will feel younger next year.

Bus Drivers Needed

Were he born in this century, Christ might well have been a bus driver. Not a bad way to engage new and interesting people he wouldn't meet otherwise. While it might not bring eternal salvation, driving our elderly members and others to services each Sunday is a practical and fun way to support Mount Olivet. If you'd like to volunteer, contact Charles Lundy.
