Christ is risen! He is risen indeed!

At Easter, we celebrate the truth that even death cannot overcome God's intention and power to bring life and new beginning in all circumstances. It may seem too good to be true, but Jesus tells his disciples, and us,

"all things are possible with God." (Mark 10:27)

God is able to heal our brokenness. God not only forgives our failure and sins, God enables us to forgive others. Because Christ is risen, we find courage to move ahead, even when we are afraid. We have hope when situations seem hopeless.

During this Easter season, may God offer us a vision of Mount Olive's future that embodies and enacts this good news: Christ is risen! All things are possible.

Jesus’ Last Days: A Holy Week Oratorio - April 18

Join the Mount Olive Adult Choir and Chamber Orchestra as they present a Holy Week Oratorio on Good Friday, April 18 at 7:00 pm. The number seven holds great significance in scripture. Creation took seven days; there are seven gifts of the Holy Spirit; the tabernacle was built in six days and dedicated on the seventh; and we often associate Christ's passion with seven last words or phrases. This musical work walks us through the seven last days of Jesus' earthly existence.

Easter Breakfast

You are invited to breakfast between services on Easter Sunday. Pancakes, sausages, eggs, fruit, pastries, and beverages will be served buffet style. A free-will offering will support the Mount Olive Youth mission trips this summer.

Food Drive for the Channel One Regional Food Bank

As you come into church, there are barrels in which you can drop off your bags of nonperishable food. Channel One requests that the community not donate baby food and products in glass jars.

Mount Olive’s goal is 400 bags of food during Lent this year. A monetary donation of $10 counts as one bag of food. Check out the display on the windows to Fellowship Hall to watch our progress!
