Handbell choir ringing on Palm Sunday
The music ministry of Mt. Olive seeks to always point the congregation to God. Through His beautiful gift of melody and song combined with words inspired by the Holy Scriptures and the Holy Spirit, we hope to focus others minds and hearts on the greatness of our Lord and His tremendous love for each of us.

Amazingly, God weaves our simple musical ability into songs of praise and thanksgiving, through the dedication of wonderful Christians, lives are touched and others are led to praise also. We strive to include everyone who loves music and is willing to use his or her gifts in ministry. Very few of our musicians are formally trained, but we make up for that with great enthusiasm!

We are blessed at this time to have trumpeters, violinists, a flautist, and handbell ringers to provide special music along with our organist and pianist during our services. And we are ready to include anyone who wishes to share his or her abilities. We have an Adult Choir and a Handbell Choir that rehearse weekly and participate in services regularly. New members are always welcome…come and join in the praise!

“Let every instrument be tuned for praise.
Let all rejoice who have a voice to raise.
And may God give us faith to sing always:
ALLELUIA!” (LSB, Hymn 796)
