Dinner and a Show

Don’t Miss Out On “Dinner and a Show”!

Join us at 6:00 PM on June 19th for an evening of food and fun entertainment at Mount Olivet. We will serve you a delicious dinner, catered by High Cotton Barbeque with BBQ, baked beans, cole slaw, and Mrs. Lynda Midgett’s famous strawberry pie. During dinner, you will have the opportunity to watch and listen as students from the Cove Student Ministry perform in a talent show.

“Dinner and a Show” is the final fund raiser for The Cove Student Ministry’s Missions Trip to Huntington, West Virginia, and it is a great chance for you to interact with our students as they display some of the gifts that God has given them as they perform and serve. We will not be selling tickets at the door, so reserve your seats right away! Tickets are on sale in the church office, and are only available until Tuesday, June 16th at 4:00 PM. You can purchase individual tickets for $15 or reserve an entire table for six people (with preferred seating, limited availability) for $75.

Thank you for your continued prayers and support for our students as we prepare for our missions trip!


Baby Grand Piano

Baby Grand Piano

The church has been presented with a fantastic opportunity to replace the upright piano in the sanctuary with a beautiful baby grand piano! The total cost of the baby grand is $7,000 which is less than half what a new baby grand would cost. We have a relatively short time frame to raise the funds for the new piano. Currently we have received funds for about 1/2 of the total cost. We would like you to prayerfully consider contributing to the piano funds.

Donations can be made online via our online giving link.

Click on the “Online Giving” link on the top right of the page. Under “other” enter your donation and put “Piano Fund” in the memo line. You can also drop a donation off at the church office or in the offering plate on Sunday.

Getting this new piano would open up doors to a multitude of opportunities for Worship Services, Wedding Ceremonies, and other special events that happen regularly at Mount Olivet. We would appreciate your prayers and support.

2015 Graduates Recognition

We need this information by May 26th; Recognition Sunday will be June 7th during the 11:00 am service. We don’t want to leave anyone out!
