Adore Team

Duties include preparing the sanctuary to enhance the worship experience for each participant. This includes everything from decorating the church for special services to making sure there is a workable pencil in the pew.Preparing the lord’s supper, placing it on the altar and properly removing it, is a great honor experienced by the Adore Team. We are responsible for placing the proper paraments on the altar as well as caring for pastor’s robes. We schedule all the volunteers that usher, greet or read as well as scheduling the youth acolytes. We are the team behind the scene preparing the sanctuary for each service.

Contribute Team

The Contribute Team is about Christians being willing to give of themselves, giving their time, talents, gifts and treasures back to God and one another in thankfulness for what God has done first for us. Christian stewardship is the free and joyous activity of the child of God and God’s family, the church, in managing all of life and life’s resources for God’s purposes. specific activities include:

  • Encourage Christians to be good stewards of their time, talents and treasures in service to God and one another
  • Provide opportunities for Christians to learn about how God has blessed each Christian with gifts and talents
  • record and track member contributions
  • record and track member time, talents, gifts and interests enabling members to find how they can best serve the lord at Mount olive.

Teach Team 

The Teach Team is a dynamic group that had the spiritual growth and development of the entire congregation as the focal point of all we do. We are the driving force for evaluating new curriculum and programming for adults, youth and children. We plan for and coordinate with the other ACTIon teams to provide materials and qualified personnel for activities which include sunday school, youth retreats, vbs, seder meals, and mission trips. We welcome new members that have a heart for spurring on the faith of believers and planting seeds of faith.
