Just a quick note to say we’ve had such a good experience with [son] in the nursery this fall… everyone has been so welcoming and friendly. He’s happy to be dropped off, and seems to enjoy himself. ... Mount Olivet is such a special place to us, it’s so neat to have it be a place [son] talks about – and enjoys being as well

Infants through 3 year olds and their caregivers are invited to join us for a weekly faith-based hour-long class: Babygarten! The program, developed by a children’s librarian and early childhood specialist, focuses on reading, rhyming, and activities to help lay the groundwork for the important skills that babies develop early in their lives. Babygarten is more than a playgroup or storytime and provides pre-literacy skills for children in a faith-focused environment.
All are invited to sample a free class from 9:45-10:45a on Thursday, December 17 or Thursday, January 7.

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 (Thursdays, January 14-February 18 from 9:45-10:45a), includes all materials. Contact: amyp@mtolivet.org or 612.767.2224

Baptism is an once-in-a-lifetime sacrament in your child’s faith journey. Jesus said, “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit” (Matthew 28:19). Baptism is God’s promise to wash away our sins. In this one-session, one-hour class with Pastor Bill MacLean (Mpls Campus) and Pastor Eric Youngdahl (West Campus), you will learn more about the promises Baptism holds for your child, the promises you make for your child, and ways to help your children understand themselves as children of God.

Please register with Mary Lindberg (612-767-2267/maryl@mtolivet.org) one week prior to class.
