Babygarten is a faith-based program developed by a children’s librarian and early childhood specialist that 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.

The sacraments of Holy Baptism and Holy Communion carry God's grace — forgiveness, life and salvation — to God's people. These sacraments are gladly offered for you and your family at Mount Olivet Lutheran Church. "In the waters of Baptism we are reborn children of God and inheritors of eternal life. By water and the Holy Spirit we are made members of the church which is the body of Christ." -Lutheran Book of Worship We have baptisms every Sunday. The Pastor who is scheduled to preach also performs the baptisms on that given Sunday. Private baptisms can be arranged.
