Frequently Asked Questions
Where Should I Park?
The best place to park is in the paved parking lot on the right side of the Sanctuary (building with the steeple). Look for the guest parking spaces next to the handicapped parking spaces.
What Type of Music is Used in Worship?
The 9 am service has traditional music. There is a choir which sings and the congregation sings hymns and praise songs accompanied by a piano.
The 11:05 am service has contemporary music. A live band with guitars, drums, and keyboard leads the congregation in contemporary worship songs.
Where's the Entrance
Greeters will meet you at the Welcome Center which is at the corner of the Sanctuary (building with the steeple) and the Education Wing (building attached to the right of the sanctuary) and at the front door of the sanctuary.
What Will My Children do While I'm in the Service?
During the 9 am service there is child care for infants through preschool aged children. During the 11:05 am service, there is child care for infants and toddlers in the nursery. Children in preschool through 5th grade are in the sanctuary until the sermon time of the service. At that time they are dismissed with their teachers to Children's Church. If you come to Sunday School, there are classes for all ages.
What Should I Wear?
You are welcome at Olive Branch just as you are. You will see some people in a coat and tie, or dress, but most are causally dressed in what they are comfortable with wearing. We believe the attitude of our hearts our more important when we worship than the clothes we wear.
How Can I Find Where to Take My Children or Attend Sunday School?
Please go to the Welcome Center (corner of the Sanctuary and the Education Wing) and our greeters will be happy to personally take you to the nursery and the Sunday School classrooms.
