Q and A
Welcome to Olivet!  If these FAQs don’t answer one of your questions, feel free to send us an email.  
 
Are your three worship services the same?

No. At Olivet, we believe that God touches our hearts during worship in all kinds of ways. For that reason, we offer three distinct styles of worship on the weekends.

Saturday: 5:30pm Blended Worship

Each week the Saturday service features a new order of service to coincide with the worship theme and offers a blend of contemporary music and American traditional hymns led by a praise band. 

Sunday: 8:00am
Traditional Liturgical Worship
 

Olivet’s traditional service on Sunday mornings is led by organ, brass, flute and other instruments. Each Sunday, 2-3 singers take part in leading the hymnal worship music for this service.

Sunday: 10:00am Contemporary Worship

A praise band leads contemporary music in an energetic atmosphere at this worship service. Each week the 10am service offers a customized worship service based on the sermon theme.

Do you have childcare?
The nursery is available to all families needing assistance with their children on Sundays from 8:00 am to 11:00 am. It has a large play area with sunny windows and appropriate toys, as well as toilet facilities and a changing area. The nursery is attended by consistent care providers to promote comfort and familiarity for the children.  As the children play, nursery staff silently pray over them.
 
Who’s taking care of my children?
All of our children’s ministry and student ministry volunteers are specifically recruited by our leadership and must go through an application process that includes a background check before they begin their ministry. Our ministry teams are full of committed, faithful, and loving team members who are serving because they want to make an eternal investment in the life of your child.
 
What should I wear?
Clothes, please wear clothes!  Whatever makes you comfortable – but we do encourage modest dress for both men and women. 
 
How long will the worship service last?
A typical service is 60-65 minutes in length and includes worship, announcements, offering, and a message that’s both based on the Bible and relevant to your life.
 
Do I have to give an offering?
The offering is meant for those who have made Olivet their church home. Feel free to let the offering plate pass by if you are a guest.
