    Teacher/classroom assignments will be emailed at the end of August. “I am looking forward to my 2nd year in The Way this fall.  I like how we start in a big group then go into smaller groups with just our grade.  I also had a great time on the activities we took (bowling, Grand Slam…).” Emma

    Believing, Belonging, Becoming...
    Mount Olivet establishes a dynamic partnership with families in the Christian education and faith development of their children.  Instead of traditional Sunday Church School classes, 5th and 6th graders participate in The Way, a pre-Confirmation program on Sunday mornings. This is an exciting program for young people as they transition from Sunday Church School into Confirmation on their faith journey.

    Students in 5th and 6th grades are invited to enhance their faith through educational, service, and fellowship activities. Students experience the importance of Christian friendships and faith for life. We focus on Jesus' call to serve others.

    While the students learn about the Bible, Martin Luther, and other typical Sunday School lessons, the program has several differences, including:

    • A unique format on Sunday mornings with large and small groups to build friendships and get to know one another.
    • We have our own events:
      • Fifth graders participate in a Bible Presentation and Dinner with their parents on Reformation Sunday, October 26, 2014.   Registration will be available this Fall.
      • Sixth graders participate in Holy Communion in the Spring to mark the beginning of their Confirmation journey.  Details will be emailed from our Confirmation coordinators.
      • Social and service events during the year!  We will announce these events duCard made by a 10 year old student.ring class and via email.  Past events include bowling, volunteering at Feed My Starving Children, and a fun evening at GrandSlam.  Members, visitors, and friends are all welcome to attend these events and  Sunday morning classes.
