While Mt. Olive has ensembles that rehearse weekly, we often pull together special ensembles for worship using band instruments, handbells, or singing. Anyone who plays an instrument or sings is invited to share their talent in worship. We welcome sacred music of all types from ancient chant to modern acoustic worship music. If you are interested in participating, please contact Lynne Bolick Reed at 828-324-6198, ext. 208.
