Youth In Action: Serving Others


We are beyond grateful for the continual love and support you show your church and the surrounding community. From weekly service projects to one-time events, your dedication to Mount Olivet is admired,
and your time is appreciated. We thank you! We are blessed to have you as a part of our youth program. If you would like to volunteer but haven’t found your place yet, please, come talk to us about opportunities!

I am in 11th grade and I am an active member in the Cathedral Choir at the West Campus. Volunteering at Mount Olivet is the most important thing that I do all week. It has completely transformed my faith life. When I was in 8th grade, I didn’t think much about what I would do after I was confi rmed, and ended up not being involved at all in church for the first half of my freshman year. I was miserable. I realized that I loved the routine trip out to Victoria, and that I needed to be talking to God more frequently. I signed up for Cathedral Choir, and made new friendships that will last me a lifetime. My relationship with God strengthened tenfold, and now I am closer to him than I have ever been. Serving others has taught me many things. It has taught me to be kind and patient, and to keep an open mind. Most importantly, I learned that serving others is the best way to serve God. –Sam Buller

I am an 8th-grader and will be confirmed in the fall of 2015. Through Mount Olivet, volunteer work has not only become one of my favorite activities, but also something I hope to do for the rest of my life. I look forward to the days when I get to go to church and sing in the Chancel Choir, or when I go to the Mount Olivet home and spend time with the residents through the Adopt-A Grandparent program. A lot of people get the impression that volunteer work is a burden or something they are forced to do. However, in my perspective it is an amazing experience and shapes you as a person. When I first joined Mount Olivet in 5th grade I couldn’t wait to participate in the volunteer work. I’ve always looked at serving others as a privilege Mount Olivet has given to me. I look at volunteering as an opportunity to learn, and I have always had fun during these events. Although as a teenager I have a lot on my plate – from homework, to sports, to just hanging out with my friends – volunteering at Mount Olivet is always one of my top priorities. – Amelia Spaeth

Volunteer work at Mount Olivet is something that I am extremely proud to be a part of. I help teach a Sunday School class for 3-year-olds, and I am a peer minister for the Junior High Alive program. I love volunteering because it allows me to grow as a person by helping others. Giving my time at church has been very rewarding to my faith life. Each time I serve others at Mount Olivet I feel like I am deepening my relationship with God with the help of the youth staff and other volunteers. Th e people that are involved at church have become some of my best friends and inspirations for the person I want to become. I also enjoy volunteering because it gives me the opportunity to show people why I love going to church and hopefully inspire them to continue their faith journey at Mount Olivet. Volunteering teaches me how to be a leader and to appreciate the work of others. I know that I will continue to volunteer at Mount Olivet because it has been an amazing experience. – Macey Oliver
