On-going Local Missions and Ministries
Please click on the ministries listed below for a description and ways you can be involved.
Jesus said to pray for God to send out workers (Luke 10:2). It's also important to pray for those serving the Lord in missions (Ephesians 6:19, 20). Below are some resources to help you pray.
Operation World gives information about each country of the world so you can pray specifically for the nations. You can receive daily reminders to pray by going to their WEBSITE or downloading their app.
Go to this PAGE to read how you can better pray for missionaries. This page is produced by Wycliffe Bible Translators who translate the Bible to languages for people that don't yet have Bibles in their own language.
OBBC gives annually to various missionary offerings to support national and international ministries that are sharing the Word of God and the gospel of Jesus Christ. When a special offering is being collected you can find it listed on the giving page. You can give online to them at that time by clicking HERE.

Go - Global Missions
OBBC is committed to supporting full-time missionaries in the field as well as sending volunteers on short-term trips.
Go - Local Missions
Impact Virginia is a week long youth mission and construction trip in the state of Virginia each summer. Youth spend the week repairing homes in poorer neighborhoods. In addition to the work they do, they enjoy worship and Bible study each day, and have an afternoon off during the week to participate in a fun activity. Olive Branch has traveled in recent years to Bluefield, Danville, Chester, Alexandria, Culpeper, and the Eastern Shore. The destination is usually announced at church in January.
Woman's Missionary Union
The WMU is a missions organization where women learn about missions, give to missions, and participate in mission activities.
Olive Branch has two Women On Mission (WOM) groups:
Rosa Thompson WOM - meets the second Sunday of each month at 2:00 PM in the fellowship hall.
Helen Cook WOM - meets the second Tuesday of each month at 10:00 AM in the fellowship hall.
On the Wednesday before Thanksgiving Olive Branch reaches out to the residents of our local Adult Homes, and Adult Daycare Facilities. We invite them to enjoy a Thanksgiving meal at our Christian Life Center. We also have a program after the meal of Christian songs and Christmas music.
Acts of Random Kindness
Each Spring Olive Branch loves on the community by doing acts of kindness. As we serve our community on this day we want them to know Jesus loves them and so do we. Projects have included construction, feeding residents at Adult Homes, singing at nursing homes, washing windshields at a gas station, taking lunch to police officers, sewing projects, and much more.
