As they extend their “olive” branch to the community to come be a part of their celebration
(Louisville, KY) Mt. Olive has been a vital and a stable entity in the Smoketown neighborhood. On Sunday, February 25th, Rev. Alex C. Shanklin and its members will celebrate their 118th Church Anniversary.
From their humble beginnings, as the founders of the church wanted to worship together gathered in a small house to presently in 2018, Mt. Olive is located on several acres on East Kentucky Street. They built the church and family life center. Then doing the impossible during difficult economic times, this congregation burned their mortgage when the loan was paid off. Mt. Olive has proven to be a leader in the growth of the community.
So, on Sunday, February 25th, we invite you to celebrate the history of the church, its deep roots in the Smoketown community and their compassion to give back. This year’s theme says it all, “Love One Another,” from the scripture, I John 4:20-21.
Rev. Samuel L. Whitlow Jr., Pastor of Calvary Baptist Church of Louisville will be the guest minister and will preach the 11:00 am service. Jackell Jackson and Natasha Rudolph will serve as the Master and Mistress of Ceremonies for the morning service.
We would love for you to come out as we set the example of loving one another. It’s not always about the gift of money, but of time and love. You will feel welcomed as soon as you walk through the doors of our church.
