Leaving a Legacy

There are many opportunities for you to be a part of Mt. Olivet and the community. With our thoughts on: Belong, Believe, Be Filled - it is important to be involved spiritually with each other and do good works. Mt. Olivet’s legacy has carried through generations and it needs to continue to serve those seeking Christ in their lives. Many of you have been active across several groups in the church for many years and we hope to see that dedication continue, as well as your encouragement to others to make their mark in the Mt. Olivet legacy.

I wanted to give a rundown of how the church is organized and the different programs we offer. Barb Feaster summarized our groups looking for more help in last month’s newsletter. I have included these, as well as some additional details on other groups.
