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.

Join us for Vacation Bible School (VBS) June 19th – 22nd at both the Minneapolis and West Campuses. Children who are 4 years old (as of Sept. 1, 2017) through those entering 2nd grade will love exploring Friendship – our theme for fun and faith-filled mornings! VBS is from 9:00 a.m. – 11:45 a.m. and features Bible Stories, music, arts and crafts, story time, games, snack time, and more. Children will learn how Jesus taught us to be good friends – to care, serve, forgive, and love one another. We will conclude our week with a Children’s Worship service and picnic in the courtyard. Don’t miss the boat on our VBS Friendship Cruise! Students entering grades 7-12 interested in volunteering to assist with Vacation Bible School should contact Amber Kuntz (AmberK@mtolivet.org – 612-767-2285) or Josh Nelson (JoshN@mtolivet.org – 612-767-2284).
