Young in Heart
Young in Heart is one of the longest perpetually running groups at Mount Olivet Church. Organized in 1957, the Young in Heart Club celebrated their 60th anniversary in 2017.
Young in Heart is simply an opportunity for adults ages 65 plus to get together for lunch, conversation and entertainment during the months of October through May.
Young in Heart has been blessed these many years with strong lay leadership and a commitment to Mount Olivet Church and its many and varied ministries. Young in Heart, through its generosity, helps support Pastor Linton Scott’s inner-city ministry. Pastor Kurt Kalland serves as pastoral advisor to the Young in Heart Group.
