Service & Advocacy

Committees and Volunteer Opportunities

Olivet is a volunteer-led organization. You can be part of Olivet’s ministry in many ways. Get involved in visioning, leadership, and decision-making on the church council or a standing committee. Give your time and energy to help with worship, music and art ministries, faith formation, event planning, prayer ministry, or building care and maintenance. Or, if you have your own ministry idea, Olivet is a place where you’ll find others to join the cause.

Partnerships with Local Service Agencies

We have partnerships with a number of local organizations. Get involved by volunteering your time or making a donation. Examples of service opportunities at Olivet include food donations and financial support of Merriam Park/Keystone Community Services food shelves, Project Home volunteers for homeless ministry in local churches, delivering gifts and flowers to home-bound seniors in the community, and many more.

Habitat for Humanity

Each year, Olivet participates in a Habitat for Humanity build in the Twin Cities by providing donations, food and volunteers. In recent years, volunteers have also traveled to the Crow Creek Sioux Reservation in South Dakota to help with Habitat’s efforts to provide affordable housing for residents.
