Officially joining the church formalizes and makes public our faith in and commitment to Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. New members are received at a meeting of the Session of the church scheduled ever other month to welcome, get to know, and officially receive newcomers into membership.
Members are received by profession of faith and baptism, by reaffirmation of faith, or by transfer from another Christian congregation.
The Session meeting to receive new members is typically scheduled on a Sunday evening at 7:00 pm. On the Saturday before, Pastor Albert leads a new member orientation session in the morning that serves as an overview of the history, beliefs, and practices of the Christian church and an introduction to the Olivet congregation and its ministry.
If you are interested in taking this step in your journey of faith, please contact Pastor Albert.
