Thank you for visiting our website!
We aren't like any other church, and that is a good thing. You have hurts, let us help. If you haven't felt accepted in other churches, give us a try.
10:30 a.m. Sundays
Be warned, we are different. But you are gonna have to come and check us out to see.
What our typical service looks like
The overall atmosphere is free and friendly, a place where kids can be kids. As Christ was not and is not religious, neither are we. Instead we hope you will find us relational.
Attire Worn: As pastor, I do not own special clothes bought for Sunday service. I do however, wear the best clothes I own (Exodus 19:9-15). In the service you will see people dressed in slacks & button-up shirts, blue jeans and t-shirts (all with & without sleeves), and shorts and tank tops. Shoes are flip flops to formals. I believe to own special clothing for church cannot be found in Christ's life or teachings, therefore it will not be found at Olive Branch.
Sermons: Being a 21st century pastor is something I take very seriously. The style of preaching is modernly ancient. I use music, movie clips, and youtube clips, along with traditional stories and book quotes to transfer Kingdom understanding in everyday life. The messages are designed to expose our spiritual condition to ourselves (James 1:23-25), then reveal God's plan on how to accept His healing in our lives.
Music: We have no musicians. We worship together through an overhead, with most music from original artists. Our message music can be anywhere from Johnny Cash to Metallica, and Led Zeppelin to Rihanna. Our worship music follows along the same lines, with Casting Crowns, Third Day, Skillet, and so on.
Children's Church: Christ's messages were always spoken on the level of whom it was directed at. At Olive Branch we worship together as a family until the time of the message (or sermon). The Children's pastor then takes them to deliver a message at their level of understanding, as to not hinder them from coming to Him. (Matthew 19:13-15).
We look forward to worshipping with you this Sunday!
Jason McClain, Pastor
