Children and Youth:
Children and Youth E4M classes are on break for the summer. Children’s Church is also on break and will resume in the fall.
Nursery Care: We offer supervised nursery care for children ages birth-3 years old during the 10:30 AM worship service. (expanded to include 4-yr-olds through summer)
Equipping for Ministry (E4M): 9:00–10:00 A.M. upstairs for all students 4–18 years old.
We believe that every Christian is called and gifted to ministry in one way or another. The “E4M” hour is our attempt to equip our families with the theological grounding, Biblical world-view, and practical skills they need to pursue God, love people, and multiply fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ.
Children’s Church: Children 4 through 8 years old are dismissed to join our Children’s Ministry Team upstairs just before the sermon portion of our worship service. Children’s coloring and activity packets are available in the back of the worship center for parents to give to their older children during for the worship service.
Adult class will wrap up on June 23 and break for the summer.
Adult Equipping for Ministry (E4M): 9:00–10:00 A.M. in the worship center.
Weekly Community Groups
Despite the fact that we have so many ways to connect with one another (cell phones, text, email, etc…) people have never been so isolated and alone. And we realize that it is very hard to develop deeper relationships on Sunday morning—especially if you have little ones.
Community groups are an opportunity to encourage one another to love and good works (Hebrews 10:24) by meeting during the week in local homes for 1.5–2 hours of fellowship, prayer, and applicational Bible study that follows the Sunday sermon.
We have groups meeting in Poulsbo, Silverdale, and Seabeck, but all 3 are currently on summer break.
Please contact us to join a community group today!
Men’s Breakfast: One Saturday morning a month for fellowship, encouragement and sharpening each other in our walk with the Lord. And the food just happens to be amazing. Resumes in the fall.
Men’s Small Groups: We have two men’s groups that are meeting in order to support and disciple each other. Both groups are open to newcomers.
- A group meets at the church 8:30 AM on Saturday Mornings. This group is on summer break.
- A group meet at Cafe Cocina in Poulsbo at 5:30 AM on Wednesday mornings (Jim Jolley coordinates this group). Wednesday group continues through the summer.
Women’s Bible Study: Our Tuesday Morning Women’s Bible Study is on summer break, watch for a new study topic in the fall.
Gifted Hands: Our Knitting/Crocheting Group, known as “Gifted Hands”, normally meets two Thursdays a month (check the church calendar) in the foyer at Olympic, but is only meeting once a month from June thru August. Bring your current projects or learn how to make an item to be used in an outreach ministry such as “Caps for COTN”. It’s a great bunch of ladies and they have a lot of fun. If you have any questions please contact the church office.
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 10:00 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.
Our church is currently involved through financial contributions and/or personal involvement with the following local ministries and our own compassion ministry. If you would like to know more about these ministries please contact the church office to find out how you can get involved.
Backpack Buddies: Help to support our Backpack Buddies program at Woodlands Elementary School, providing 40 students-in-need each week throughout the school year with kid-friendly, shelf-stable, easy-to-prepare, and nutritionally sound food items that are transportable in a backpack.
Each month check out the Backpack Buddies folder in the lobby, the Pick up one or more slips, purchase the items, and bring them back.
Salvation Army: Giving Tree – Providing Christmas gifts to families in need.
Local Food Bank: We collect donations for the Central Kitsap Food Bank year-round. There is a green tub in the Foyer for canned food and other non-perishable items. Flour, sugar, etc. — the kitchen staples — are always needed, as well as canned meats, veggies, pasta, fruit, etc.
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.
