Sunday School Volunteer Interest Form 

 


Classes, Times, and Locations

Children who are 3 years old (and potty trained) as of September 1, 2017, through 4th grade are invited to register for Sunday Church School.  Members and non-members are welcome to register at any time during the year.

Classes are available during the 9, 10, and 11a services at our Minneapolis & West Campuses.

Students in 5th and 6th grade are invited to join us at The Way, our pre-Confirmation program on Sunday mornings.

Classes are held Rally Sunday, September 10 through May 20 (no classes December 17, 25, January 1, or on Easter Sunday). Kids are welcome to enroll at any time during the year.

Teacher/classroom assignments will be emailed to families prior to Sundays we have class (once registrations are processed).

Believing, belonging, becoming...Sunday Church School at Mount Olivet establishes a dynamic partnership with families in the Christian education and faith development of their children.

The Sunday Church School experience is designed to familiarize children with the wonderful story of God's faithfulness centered in the Good News of the Gospel.

  • explore Bible lessons through storytelling, crafts, and dramatic play,
  • contribute to our Thanksgiving food drive,
  • share Christmas with neighbor families with Pastor Scott, and
  • sing during worship on two Sundays.

Sunday Church School for 1st-4th grades uses a custom-created scope and sequence that incorporates Science/Technology/Engineering/Math (STEM), writing, drama, worship leading, and art. Kids will apply what they learn in school Monday through Friday to explore the Bible on Sundays.

In 5th grade students advance into The Way, a unique spiritual adventure designed just for them - focusing on topics that relate to the important and changing "pre-teen" years.  This pre-Confirmation program is for 5th & 6th graders before Confirmation begins in 7th grade.

To volunteer as a classroom assistant, substitute teacher, or superintendent (help teachers Sunday morning and pick up attendance from classrooms), please click here or contact Amber Kuntz (MPLS) or Tasha Holified (WEST).

Special Needs
For families with children with special needs, we offer Sunday Morning Friends at 11am at our Minneapolis campus. Dedicated individuals and professionals in the field volunteer on Sunday mornings to provide children with a loving and flexible Sunday School experience. Alternatively, if parents would rather have their child paired with an assistant in a typical classroom, we are happy to find a partner for your child.  Please contact Amber (contact info at left) to start planning a successful and meaningful learning path for your child.
