September-May
The Way
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 Sunday mornings. This is an exciting program for young people as they transition from Sunday Church School into Confirmation on their faith journey.

Chapel Choir
A choir for the intermediate age singer.  4th through 6th graders use their musical knowledge to begin part-singing as well as explore the use of "hands on" instrumental accompaniments.  These advanced choristers will utilize their musical gifts in a variety of different ways through the choir year!

Joy Bells
Joy Bells is a handbell ensemble experience for 4th through 6th graders. Rhythmic and musical skills are learned and enhanced in this special instrumental group. Some previous musical knowledge is preferred but not necessary. The ensemble performs in worship services throughout the year and plays an important role in the yearly Christmas Concert.

Joyful Noise! - Orff Ensemble
An instrumental ensemble of xylophones, glockenspiels, metallophones, and rhythm instruments. During class time, the children, grades 4th through 6th, will learn to play the various instruments while singing, moving, playing, improvising, and composing.
