Mt. Olivet has friends and members who are homebound and need assistance.   Our friends would certainly appreciate a visit, a phone call, or an offer to pick up groceries or other items.  Please check with the church office for contact information for these individuals:

Prayer pushes us through life's slumps, propels us over the humps, and pulls us out of the dumps.

For now, prayer requests will be announced (on a first name basis, to assure some privacy) during the Worship Service, due to our live-streaming and recording our services.  However, some church members and congregates may not be comfortable with these public prayer requests even in this manner.  

When you are at church, and if you have prayer requests, or if you would like to share an answered prayer, please fill out one of our pew prayer cards and drop it in the offering plate at the door as you leave the worship service.  If you do have Prayer requests that you do not want specifically mentioned during the Worship Service, please indicate this on your Prayer Request slip.

The Prayer Team is more than willing to lift up all requests during our Prayer meeting on Wednesday evenings at 6 PM.  Please contact either Pastor Jason, any prayer team member, or the church office, if you have any requests.

Following the Worship Service every week, we have Prayer Team Warriors who are willing to pray for you specifically, should you need or have prayers.  Just come up to the front of the sanctuary and join the Prayer Warriors, at the end of the service. 

We are praying for the following:

All persons and families affected by the Coronavirus illness

All doctors, nurses, EMT's, and other personnel directly taking care of those with the Coronavirus illness

All of our homebound members

Mt. Olivet Presbyterian Church, the Midwest Presbytery, and the Evangelical Presbyterian Church (EPC)

Our pastor, Jason Bantz, his wife Susan, and the Bantz family

The Christian Education and Youth programs

Our fellow churches in the Edgewood Ministerial Association (EMA)

Our fellow churches in the Midwest Presbytery and others in the Evangelical Presbyterian Church (EPC)

Those traveling for vacations, business, or pleasure

The safety and the sanity of the world in these anxious times, especially in this supercharged election season.

The protection of all school children and school personnel

Our neighbors, community, country, and leaders

All military personnel serving both within the states and around the world

Keep all of these individuals and their families in your

thoughts and prayers.

Pray for all places, both in the states and around the world, 

where freedom and safety are being tested, and evil is showing

its face.


Let's pray for all of our members and friends and relatives 

(named and unnamed here) who are spiritually, emotionally, 

or physically ill.


Keep all of these friends and loved ones in your daily prayers.

Please contact the church if you know of anyone who 

needs to be added to this Prayer Request List.


Mt. Olivet is known as a praying church, and we 

earnestly pray for your concerns.
