    There is a special event for your 5th grader this fall, regardless if he/she is enrolled in The Way. All 5th graders are able to participate in an important step in their faith journey: a Bible presentation.

    Bible Presentation Dates:
    • Minneapolis: Sunday, October 25 at 4pm

    The Bible presentation marks your child’s transition from Sunday Church School into The Way, our pre-confirmation program. It is an honor for the staff and volunteers to join your children on their faith journey which you started at your child’s baptism. This is a special moment in the life of your family because placing the Bible in your child’s hand symbolizes the ownership your child is taking in his/her faith.

    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.

    Photo from Bowling.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.   Please click here for pictures from our 2014 event.
      • Sixth graders participate in Holy Communion in the Springto 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.

    Special Needs
    For families with children with special needs, we offer Sunday Morning Friends at 11am at our Minneapolis campus. Dedicated individuals and professionals in the field volunteer on Sunday mornings to provide children with a loving and flexible Sunday School experience. Alternatively, if parents would rather have their child paired with an assistant in a typical classroom, we are happy to find a partner for your child.  Please contact Heather to start planning a successful and meaningful learning path for your child.
