The History of Mount Olive Lutheran Church
Mount Olive was established in 1959 when the American Lutheran Church designated White Rock as a mission field. At that time, White Rock was mainly a summer resort, farming community, and a fishing village. The surrounding area has experienced considerable growth in population in the past 60 years.
60 years of ministry...
On December 8, 2019, Mount Olive Lutheran Church celebrated its 60th Anniversary. The congregation of Mount Olive is blessed with an active church membership serving the needs of the community.
Activities that occur throughout the year include quilting, fellowship baking (turkey pies and Christmas baked goods), ELW Bible studies, Men's Breakfast, Sunday School, VBS, youth gatherings, lectionary Bible study, weekly Brown Bag Lunch, adult drop-in, card ministry, building rentals to local community agencies, congregational meals and fellowship, confirmation, SUMS, active gardening committee, and choir.
Our purpose and vision
The purpose of this congregation is to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ; to gather into community people who are in the process of living out their Baptismal Covenant; to encourage and affirm one another and to offer worship, prayer, praise, service and Christian education so that the ministry of each believer may be fulfilled.

"... the project was going to be a real challenge... because, 40 years ago, my father started that parish. The connection with Mt. Olive congregation was forefront in my mind as I worked on the carvings."
