GIVING

We are called to share and be generous.

The center of our mission and vision at Mount Olivet is our faith in God and God’s call for us to share with others - so everyone can have abundant life. 

We become a community partnering with God in the world as we share our passions and presence and give of our financial gifts.

Giving to Mount Olivet supports and enriches our mission and ministry and impacts our partnerships in the community.   

Committing to a regular contribution (pledging) allows Mount Olivet to effectively plan and manage our financial resources

We have two separate funds:

The General Fund supports our faith formation programs, congregational tithe, staff compensation, day-to-day expenses, etc.

The Capital Fund supports our mortgage and building maintenance.
