Sermon Topic for this Week
From Pastor Gary:
The challenges of the Christian life are many! The “new believer” enters a relationship that is entirely different than anything he has ever experienced before. The “established follower” of Christ walks a path filled with uncertain curves and storms, and even unanswered questions.
So, how does the child of God navigate this journey of faith?
Sunday morning we consider what insight scripture gives:
“The Faith Walk”
Here are your announcements for today:
1.) Registrations for Sunday. Remember to register online each week by Friday noon. We are still observing COVID protocols so remember when you come to church to sanitize, mask and social distance.
2.) The "Drive By Birthday Celebration" for Alice Carlisle was a great success. Thanks to all who participated. What an amazing church family we have!!
3.) Our Daily Bread Calendar is putting together a special 40th anniversary edition featuring pictures from its readers across Canada. If you a photography buff or just enjoy taking pictures of our beautiful area, check out their website at ourdailybread.ca/calendar for more details. Deadline is June 15, 2021.
4.) The Missions Committee is looking for good gently used Christian books and materials as well as children’s books (all kinds) to complete a pallet to be shipped to Sierra Leone as part of a literacy programme. They may be left at the church, preferably in cardboard boxes. Thank you!
Update from the Search Committee:
Over the past year, the search committee has interviewed a number of candidates for the lead pastor role. For various reasons, we have felt that these candidates would not be the right fit for our church. As a committee, we are committed to finding the right individual for Olivet, no matter how long that may take. God’s timing is perfect, and we know that the right man will come when He sees fit.
Please continue to pray for the search committee as we seek the Lord’s will for who will be our next pastor.

Olivet is glad to offer free access to RightNow Media through our church, Click here to sign up and choose from more than 2,000 wholesome, educational, and entertaining videos in the RightNow Media library. Stream them in the living room or on the go.
Note: If you are having trouble with the church videos buffering (stopping and starting), click on the gear settings wheel on the lower right corner and adjust the video size. Start with 540P and in most cases this will work fine. If this works, try larger numbers until buffering starts and then go back one video size. Leaving this setting on Auto causes most buffering issues.
