Loving in Christ

Find friendships, encouragement and hope with the women of Olive Baptist Church.

Divorce Recovery

The divorce recovery program is designed to help you pick up the pieces of your life and begin a process of recovery. It is Biblically-based encouragement offered to those who are looking for answers through this difficult time. All of our facilitators have experienced the devastation brought on by divorce. Our desire is to encourage you as we, ourselves, have been encouraged.

Fighting Addiction

The Most Excellent Way is a program for those affected by addiction. It provides an alternative to chemical dependency by teaching you how to become God-dependent. Our principles of recovery are based entirely upon God’s Word. Support meetings take place Tuesdays and Fridays at 7:00pm.

Grief Support

This is a weekly support meeting for those grieving the loss of a loved one. Each session consists of a video and group discussion. Meetings are held once a week for 13 weeks, and take place Wednesdays from 6:00-8:00pm.


The ministry to widows is led by deacons of the church and supported by caring volunteers within our church. Coordinators are available to assist widows without local family to support them. The Widow Connection provides opportunities for widows to come together for group activities.

First Place 4 Health

This is a Christ-centered weight-loss and healthy-living program which helps people to develop a healthy lifestyle. Contact Ginger Mitten at gmitten@olivebaptist.org.

Spiritual Guidance & Counseling

If you are struggling with a personal issue, Olive has volunteers and staff who can listen, encourage you, and pray with you. We also provide referrals to professional Christian counselors in the area who are members of our church. Contact Jon DuBois at jdubois@olivebaptist.org.

Tender Hearts Caring Hands

We strive to see people empowered by Christ to break out of the cycle of poverty and learn to provide for their families. The Tender Hearts Caring Hands ministry provides practical outreach to those struggling to pay bills and searching for jobs.


It’s important that you take time off to stay mentally fit and ready to face the challenges of being a caregiver. Olive offers a caregiver support group for people who face this situation. The group meets on the second and fourth Thursdays of each month at 1:00pm in room 5104.

Mother’s Day Out

To provide mothers with a break during the week, our preschool ministry offers Mother’s Day Out every Tuesday for a nominal charge. While at MDO, children participate in a variety of age-appropriate activities.

Artist Group

This group meets Tuesday afternoons from 1:00-3:00pm in the ROC. They offer no instruction, just time to share the love of art. The group includes oil and watercolor painters and colored pencil and pastel artists.

Forgiven and Set Free

Forgiven and Set Free is a class designed to help women suffering from the pain of abortion. Meetings are held the last Tuesday of every month and attendance is confidential. Childcare is provided.
