Mt. Olivet Missions and Community Assistance Agencies 

Mt. Olivet has a long-standing tradition of service within the community.

From our Women's Guild to our youth groups, we find ways to help our fellow neighbor.

 

Each financial quarter, the church takes up Special Offering to send to a local charity.  

We invite that organization to come to our worship service and speak to our congregation on what they are offering the community and what type of help they need.

If you would like us to consider your organization, please contact the office. 

We have listed the community service agencies that help families within our area.

The church is located in Mahoning County, but we have included help lines for Columbiana County, as well. If you know of an organization that should be on our list, please let us know! If there is something that you still need help with, and this list doesn't fit your needs,

let us know and we will try find you an answer. 

Life situations can come at us hard and we want to be able to help where we can.

Ordinarily, the church does not provide direct financial assistance to someone in need.  

We have found the best use of our member's donations 

is through supporting the funding of the social service organizations in our area,

which allows them to be successful. We will consider financial help with referral from an accredited social service organization.
