OUR CHURCH
At Olivet-Schwenkfelder you will find an Open and Affirming community of faith, welcoming all people into the full life and ministry of the church—without regard to race, gender, or sexual orientation. We strive to proclaim God’s love as shown to us through our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, while growing in faith, fellowship and humble service to others.

We gather together as a Christian community to glorify God, to pray and praise God, to learn and nurture our faith, and to support and love one another. To listen to others and be aware of the moment and the events of the day, so we do not miss the opportunity to serve God!
