Olympic Supports several missionaries that are working around the country and around the world in our desire to be ambassadors around the world. If you would like to know more about our missionaries please contact the church office or stop by. Many of our missionaries are serving in areas of the world in which their work is not appreciated and so we do not promote them on our website to protect their confidentiality. We also look for ways to not only support our missionaries through money, but through service. We have sent several people from our congregation out to work with missionaries in the field.
Our prayer team has three components that work to make sure that everything that we do is covered in prayer here at Olympic. The first team is the email prayer chain that lifts up requests that people give us permission to pray for. The second team is the group that prays for our church before the service on Sunday mornings at 9:25 in Room 201. The third team is the group of people that are ready and waiting to pray for people after the service. If you would like to join this dynamic team please contact the church office.
