Letter from the Pastor
The “experts” say that it is vital that a church have a presence on the Internet. That a growing number of people will try to investigate a church via their web pages before they or their family walk through the door. That sounds right to me since I’ve become one of “those people” who use the Internet to research almost everything.
If you are visiting the Olivet web site because you are curious about our ministries…perhaps are even considering a visit…I want to offer a personal word of welcome and encouragement. This is truly a friendly and caring congregation that seeks to meet the needs of people and share the life changing Good News about Jesus Christ in easy to understand ways.
For over 129 years Olivet Evangelical Free Church has been known as a church that proclaims and explains God’s Word (the Bible) with conviction and clarity. We have excellent ministries, leadership and staff that “connect people to Jesus Christ” and help them discover their God-given purpose.
We are a multi-generational church with meaningful ministry designed for everyone from the youngest to the oldest.
- Our Children’s Ministries are consistently excellent.
- Our Youth Ministry is exciting and spiritually dynamic.
- We are one of the few churches in West Michigan that have a staff member who dedicates his time and energies to the encouragement and discipleship of young adults.
- Our CrossTraining discipleship ministry and Small Groups are connecting adults in meaningful relationships and real spiritual growth.
- Our worship and teaching are inspirational and authentic.
- Our facilities are completely handicap accessible and barrier-free.
We hope that you will join us and let us share the love of Christ with you!
Pastor Craig Cramblet
