SHARE Ministry

"For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink...I needed clothes and you clothed me...Jesus said, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me..." - Matthew 25:34-40

Annual Adopt an Angel Ministry

Each Christmas season, the people of Mount of Olives Church adopt about 250 people (angels) who make up 45 families who regularly receive support from the Southwest Community Center in Santa Ana. 


Participating helps show these families God’s love by giving a gift at Christmas — often these are the only gifts these families receive. We also supply each family with a grocery giftcard to provide a Christmas Meal. 


Gifts collected late-November and early-December and distributed by Southwest Community Center at their Christmas party for the families they serve.
