Amidst concerns surrounding the coronavirus (COVID-19), we want to let you know how Mount Olive Baptist Church is responding. First, MOBC is praying for those who have been infected and affected by this virus and we are working to inform our congregation.

Personal hygiene is priority for MOBC members, guests, staff, and volunteers. MOBC is following the recommended CDC guidelines of placing hand sanitizer throughout our building and ample supplies of tissue. We are routinely cleaning all frequently touched surfaces in our sanctuary; classrooms, workspaces, restrooms, and nurseries, including countertops, doorknobs, and toys.
We encourage everyone to observe the CDC following recommended guidelines:
- Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
- Use hand sanitizer when soap and water is not available.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Stay home if you are sick.
- Cover your cough or sneeze.
- Fist bump or elbow touch instead of shaking hands or hugging.
MOBC is monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic and will adjust and/or cancel our worship practices, gatherings, and daily routines to minimize spread as necessary. We will communicate any changes as soon as possible, using all communicative means within our possession.
Please know that the MOBC leadership is working hard to make your spiritual care a focus in the midst of everything. We love each of you. I encourage you during these challenging days to remember you are a follower of Jesus Christ.
“Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?” Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that ‘NOTHING’ shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
