There is a table set up in the Narthex with pen, paper, and a Prayer Box.  Write down your prayer requests and drop them in the Prayer Box.  Every Wednesday evening at 8 PM we gather in a prayer meeting in the church library.  The Prayer Box will be opened, then heads will bow, and prayers lifted for your needs and concerns.  

ALL are welcome to attend our special time of prayer every Wednesday evening.

Opportunities and needs will come soon for the following Mt. Olivet project:

The J.A.M. Club will be for those children in first through fourth grades.  This will be a group that meets during Worship Service, like the "Branch Out" Group, which caters to those children in fifth grade and older.
