Saturday Night Worship-  Although Mt. Olive is not having a Saturday night worship service anymore, there is still an option to worship on Saturday nights if you are unable to worship on Sunday mornings at our two morning services. Our sister congregation, Concordia, has a 5 p.m. service. We are welcome to join them for worship anytime.
