While Mt. Olive has ensembles that rehearse weekly, we occasionally pull together special ensembles for worship using band instruments, handbell groups or special singing ensembles. 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 the church: 828-324-6198.
All music rehearsals are held on Wednesday evening. Join us!
