Gathering Again Plan


Please review options for worshipping with us this weekend at Mount of Olives Church by clicking here.

Mount of Olives Church has prayerfully developed an evolving plan to gather together again in person and on campus. This plan is tentative and subject to change at any time upon further evaluation.

 

At all times and through all phases of the plan we ask you to stay home and worship online-only for your safety and the safety of others that wish to gather in worship:

  • if you are sick, 
  • if you have a fever, 
  • if you have been exposed to COVID-19 in the past 14 days, 
  • if you are a part of a CDC defined higher-risk group
  • if you would simply prefer to worship from home

Current Phase

Sunday On Campus Services in the Worship Center

Beginning March 7


  • Both liturgical based and praise Online Services continue to be offered.
  • You are welcome to gather at home in groups, following guidelines, to worship online together.
  • Two Sunday Services inside the Worship Center offered: 8:30am (liturgical based) and 11:00am. Masks are Required. Households should safely distance. Screen yourself for sickness and fever BEFORE coming to an on campus service. Arrive early. Children attending should stay with their household. Space will be limited do to COVID distancing restrictions. Restrooms are Open.

Please remember, these safety precautions are in place so that we can better love our neighbor as we love ourselves, as Jesus commanded. We’re trying to do the loving thing and the right thing in being cautious.

 

We understand that some won’t feel comfortable gathering for church yet. We encourage you to join us via our online worship services for adults and kids.
