The style of worship at Mount Olive can be described as “Traditional”, “Conservative”, and “Liturgical”. The pastor wears traditional Liturgical attire like an alb (the white robe), stole (the colored cloth draped over his shoulders), and a chasuble (a colored cloth “poncho” which is put on right before the Lord’s Supper, after the Sermon concludes).
The pastor chants many parts of the liturgy, and the congregation is encouraged to join together in various parts like the Psalm.
These, and other traditions, allow us to communicate the teachings of Scripture with our actions as well as our words. Additionally, these traditions unite is with other Christians in this present day as well as through history. These traditions, while not commanded by God, are drawn from Scripture and seek to glorify our Lord most High.
All things should be done decently and in order.
1 Corinthians 14:40
