Worship at Mt. Olive on the second Sunday in Advent, Dec. 6 will be broadcast live on Facebook beginning at 9:30 a.m. A recording will be posted on the church webpage and YouTube channel later that same day.

The Church was never closed! Our work together continues in a new way. Worship gatherings are held online and at drive-ins as announced above for each Sunday.

Church leadership continues to re-evaluate worship gatherings as the NC Synod makes its recommendations; which are based on the advice of public health officials from the State of NC.
