MT. OLIVET EPC

OUR MINISTRIES

WORSHIP & PRAYER

Worship

Glorifying God is our greatest goal in life and we do that both personally and publically.   On Sundays, we value both traditional hymns and newer expressions of contemporary praise music.  Music on Sundays is led by our worship team.  We meet for practice on Wednesdays from  6:30 p.m. – 7:45 p.m.  Vocal singers and instrumentalists are welcome to join us!


Prayer

Prayer creates personal connection with God.  We desire to build a culture of prayer and seeking God at Mount Olivet.  Our prayer team meets on Wednesdays from 6 p.m. – 6:30 p.m. to pray for the week’s prayer requests shared on Sunday.  We know God hears our prayers and wants to answer our prayers by giving grace through trials and also to do extraordinary things in people’s lives.


Following the Sunday worship service, prayer team members are available in the front of the sanctuary to pray for any need.


Prayer requests can also be emailed to the church or by leaving a message on the church phone.  They will be shared with the prayer team.  Contact us at office@mtolivetchurch.org or at (513) 988-0422.  For urgent needs call the pastor at (513) 839-0546.

CHRISTIAN EDUCATION

Sunday School

Do you want to grow in your faith by studying the Bible with a group of others who also want to develop as followers of Christ?  Come join us on Sundays before our worship service.  We meet at 9 a.m., have a lot of fun, and grow together.  We are currently studying the Book of Revelation.


Small groups

Small groups are an opportunity to share life together as we grow in the Bible, develop Christian community with others, and pray for one another.  We have two small groups.  Thursdays 10 a.m. – 11:15 a.m. online over Zoom (contact the church for a Zoom link); and the 2nd and 4th Tuesday evenings of the month at 6:45 p.m.  Come be a part of one of our small groups!


Children and Youth

There is a children’s time during the second half of the worship service for kids Pre-school - 5th grade.


Sr. High youth will be having a confirmation class in the new year to learn about the Christian faith and to prepare to join the church.

FELLOWSHIP

Sunday Fellowship Meal

Sunday fellowship lunches are held on the first Sunday of the month following the church worship service.  The meal is a pitch-in.  If you are visiting don’t worry about bringing anything – we’d just love to have you join.  It’s a time to get to know new people and to be with old friends.


Birthday Dinner

The 3rd Tuesday of the month at 6 p.m. we enjoy a meal together in the Fellowship Hall.  Everyone is invited and we celebrate those who have a birthday that month. 


Men’s Group

Here’s an opportunity to be encouraged through fellowship with other men.  We meet the 2nd and 4th Saturdays from 8 a.m. – 9 a.m. for breakfast and a devotional.  We meet at Frisch’s at 5570 Liberty Fairfield Rd. at the corner of Route 4 and Liberty Fairfield Rd. about 10 minutes from the church.  Come join us and meet some men from Mount Olivet and grow in your faith over a great breakfast!

OUTREACH

Food Pantry

We house the community food pantry which provides food to residents of the Edgewood School District.  Please call (513) 988-9348 to leave your information and someone will get back with you.  Jesus had a heart for those in need and we desire to demonstrate the compassion and love of our Lord.


Delight 

We also support the “Delight” ministry which seeks to build community, Christian growth, and vulnerability with women on college campuses across the United States.
