We will play, read, and sing at this weekly faith-based hour-long class developed by a children librarian and early childhood specialist. Babygarten focuses on reading, rhyming, and activities. It is more than a playgroup or storytime - Babygarten provides pre-literacy skills for children in a faith-based environment. Amy Porthan, early childhood educator and Minneapolis nursery coordinator, will guide parents with activities and discussion on how to include God and faith with their child. Cost: $72/6 week session (includes all materials) Questions: Amy Porthan 612.767.2224 amyp@mtolivet.org

We are Ready for Back-to- (Sunday) School!

In addition to our hourly Sunday morning worship services, friends can join us at our age-appropriate options at 9, 10, and 11am:

Nursery (Infants-3yrs*)
Staff and volunteers lovingly care for kids while parents attend worship. Interested in registering your child or volunteering as a helper? Contact: Amy Porthan 612.767.2224 amyp@mtolivet.org.

Sunday School (3yrs to 4th Gr)
Students explore Bible stories through art, dramatic play, music, and service projects, including Food Drives, Christmas Share, music in worship (3yrs-K), children’s worship, and other outreach options.

The Way / Pre-Confirmation (5th-6th Gr)
Our unique large group / small group experience helps 5th- and 6th- graders get to know each other and volunteer leaders and staff in a meaningful way. In addition, they will host the younger students at children’s worship services and have other opportunities for leadership development (and fun!) throughout the year.

Sunday Morning Friends (3yrs+ with Special Needs)
Dedicated volunteers provide children with special needs a loving and flexible Sunday School experience at 11am at our Mpls Campus. Alternatively, if parents would like their child paired with an assistant in a typical classroom, we are happy to find a partner for your child.  Please contact Amber Kuntz (612.767.2285 amberk@mtolivet.org) to start planning a successful learning path for your child.

­* Note: Kids who are 3 years as of Sept 1, 2016 and potty trained are invited to enroll in Sunday School.
