Matrix = Olivet's High School Student Ministry!
Don't miss this great time of hanging with friends, games, music, and exploring faith.
Join us Thursdays from 6:30-8:00pm at Olivet. Hope to see ya! Last large group of school year will be on Thursday May 23rd.
We'll resume Matrix again on Thursday August 15th.
Small groups provide the opportunity to explore the Bible and relationship with God in a fun and laid-back atmosphere. Make friends and find support from students on a similar journey of faith. Guys and girls meet Sundays from 6-7:30 at Olivet. We are taking a small break during the summer, but will plan to resume in July. Check back and/or watch your texts/emails for announcements!
We're continuing with our Sunday formations this Summer. Join us before church for a whirlwind rotation of music, Bible study, breakout groups and prayer trios. Meet in the sanctuary at 9:00am Sunday mornings at Olivet.

CHRISTMAS SCAVENGER HUNT
You can see our Christmas Scavenger Hunt photos here.
High school students raised $474 and are sending a dairy cow to a family in need.
This gift will change a family's life and generations to come. Amazing
Between the Christmas Scavenger Hunt and matrifold's fundraising efforts, in total we donated $769.40 worth of life-giving animals to families in need this Christmas.
A special thanks to Olivia Roll for helping plan our Halloween outreach, and to the volunteers who went out of their way to love on inner-city kids. You can see pics from the night here!
Thanks to everyone for a fun night!!!! :D Check out the pics here.
SUMMER CAMP with MATRIFOLD!
Can't say thank you enough for a job well done. Amanda and the Potter's Wheel, Donna and Angie at Ark, the Evansville Rescue Mission, St. Mary's, Kim and all the staff at Lincoln took the time to open our eyes and make this mission possible.
Our students did an AMAZING job serving joyfully and indiscriminately.
Thanks to Linda Murphy, Mike and Carol Fehr, our bodyguards Greg, Mike, and Mike.
And my sincere admiration and thanks to our team, who prayerfully and passionately began the journey many months ago and gave much for the goal of helping students understand Jesus' heart for the poor: Lisa and Larry, PDave, and Kelsey. You guys are amazing!
“The Spirit of the Lord is on me,
because he has anointed me
to preach good news to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners
and recovery of sight for the blind,
to release the oppressed
to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.”
