“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…).” EmmaBelieving, Belonging, Becoming...
Photo from Summer of Service.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 participated in a Bible Presentation with their parents on Reformation Sunday, October 25 or on Sunday, November 1
    • Sixth graders participate in Holy Communion in the Spring to mark the beginniPhotos of 6th graders at Feed My Starving  of their Confirmation journey.  Details will be emailed from our Confirmation coordinators.
    • Social and service events during the year!  We will announce these events during 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 Amber (MPLS) or Tasha (WEST) to start planning a successful and meaningful learning path for your child.
