    Olive Grove Missionary Baptist Church, formerly known as Olive Grove Baptist Church, came into existence in the mid 1800's. The church was the spiritual haven for our forefathers and mothers whom planted their roots in the churches' foundation over a century ago. Olive Grove continues to serve the extended families of the Fitts, Howards, Lynches, Carters, Boyds, etc. To date, the fourth to the sixth generations celebrate the legacy left behind. The spiritual needs are met through weekly worship services with the breaking of bread, baptisms, confirmations, affirmations of faith and the like. Once a year a "Homecoming Service" is held in memory of our baptism for regular and long lost family and friends gather under the roof of Olive Grove for worship and fellowship. We invite and welcome all to come and experience this transformational weekend. It is a spiritual, uplifting and awesome occasion.

    All glory, honor and praise be to God for all the saints who walked by deed and example. They taught us the meaning of perseverance---to walk by faith and not by sight. May their souls rest in peace. Amen. Olive Grove's motto is, "It's time to be about our Father's business and so I rise." The journey continues...
