At the end of the Thanksgiving Week on Sunday, November 27th, 2005, at 5:30pm, Deacon William Hillaire and Brother Wag-Mar Francois met with the Anselme Family residing in the community of Saw Creek in Bushkill with the purpose of dropping the first rock of a Christian congregation inspired by The Holy Spirit.

Seven people were in attendence – Deacon William Hillaire, Brother Wag-Mar Francois along with his wife, Sister Marie Anne and son Theomar, Brother Jonas Anselme along with his wife, Sister Elizabeth and daughter Lansey.

Our first message was entitled, “Jesus Is The Head Of The Church.” The parable of Jesus saying, “Peter you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church.” (Matt 16:18)

Two months later, the Lindor family had cordially received us into their home in the name of The Lord. The inspiring message was delivered as this, “I am coming soon. Hold on to what you have, so that no one will take your crown.” (Rev 3:11)

Dr. William Lee, Pastor of Jesus the Christ Church, provided with joy the hospitality to the Haitian community to worship and praise the Lord in fellowship. Since January 7th 2007, our congregation has worshiped and praised The Lord Jesus Christ right here.

Our congregation is called “Pocono Mount Olives Church of God.” Our mission is to reach, teach, and to care for communities to nurture them for the Kingdom of God in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

“O come, let us sing unto the LORD: let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation.”
Psalms 95:1
