About Our Church

The Olive Branch Mission Statement
Our vision is to nurture persons of all ages through spiritual growth for Christian Discipleship, reach out to each other and our community and beyond in love and support, and to proclaim and live God’s word.
 

What to Expect

Worship Music

Our worship services are a blend of traditional hymns and contemporary worship.

 

What Do I Wear?

Come as you are! Wear a suit, dress or jeans and nice shirt. Come dressed up or come dressed comfortably or both! 

Children's Involvement

Jesus said "let the little children come to me." Here at Olive Branch we love the inclusion and involvement of our children and youth during service. For more information click here. 

Special Accommodations

We have a wheel chair accessible entrance at the clergy entrance in the back of the building. This entrance leads to an elevator that reaches each level of the church.

Church Prayer Chain 

Our church uses the Wizard Phone Calling Service to send out mass calls about urgent prayer needs and upcoming events. Please call the office with all calling requests. 

What We Believe

We believe in the one true, holy and living God, Eternal Spirit, who is Creator, Sovereign and Preserver of all things, who is visible and invisible. God is infinite in power, wisdom, justice, goodness, and love. We believe that we can experience God’s love and grace.

 

God reveals the divine nature as the Holy Trinity: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, each distinct and in unity inseparable, eternally one in essence and power. Through the Trinity, God is in relationship with God’s self and all creation and seeks to be in relationship with humanity out of self-giving love and grace.

We grow in personal relationship with God through worship, scripture, study and prayer.  We gather in fellowship and nurture one another -  physically, emotionally, and spiritually – that we might mature in faith and go into our community and the world to nurture others, and share God’s love that all might have a relationship with God.
