While Mt. Olive has ensembles that rehearse weekly, we often pull together special ensembles for worship using the talents of our members. You are invited to share your talent in worship. We welcome sacred music of all types from ancient chant to modern acoustic worship music. Please contact Lynne Bolick Reed at 828-324-6198, ext. 208.
