Getting Involved

Getting Involved with Mt. Olivet Missions

“Missions” is very important in the life and work of Mt Olivet.
Once we have learned about the work of missionaries, we offer opportunities for you to be directly involved in the work that our missionaries do.

Pray for Missionaries

We believe that we must pray for our missionaries and their work. We also pray for the people with whom they are working.

Give to Support Missionaries

We believe that we must support our missionaries financially by contributing to the church budget with our regular offerings as well as to the special seasonal mission offerings.

We believe everyone should have the opportunity to get personally involved by volunteering with “hands-on” mission projects that are ongoing throughout the year.

Alma Hunt State Mission Offering

You may contribute to the Alma Hunt State Mission Offering during the month of September and October. All donations are sent to the Virginia Baptist Mission Board and Woman’s Missionary Union of Virginia to support mission projects throughout the state.
Our church goal is $3,000.

You may make your check payable to Mt Olivet Baptist Church and include “Alma Hunt” on the memo line of your check.

“We Are Unique”

There is a group in Hanover County known as “We Are Unique” who is comprised of special needs young adults (including our own Brandon Germon), who is joining together for various outreach projects. The group would like to assist WHEAT (Western Hanover Emergency Action Team) by providing personal hygiene bags. The donation box, with a list of items needed, is located in the fellowship hall.
