August marks the end of summer, which means it is the time to get ready for fall! As Mount Olivet prepares for Stewardship Dinners, fall also marks the return of choirs on Sunday mornings, the beginning of educational programs for adults and youth, as well as countless special events. Mount Olivet is a place to share your time and your faith. “For where two or three are gathered in my name, I am there among them”(Matthew 18:20). Register for education classes, sign up for choirs, and be at church!

"It was great to reconnect with my camp and church friends every Wednesday in Confirmation. Even if I was having a tough week, Confirmation was something to look forward to. I always felt relaxed and welcomed. What I most look forward to in the near future is House Groups because I will meet new people and continue to grow in faith with them. It also will give me the opportunity to meet and form strong friendships with my leader and the other members of my group." – Ryan Odermatt

• Confirmation (7th & 8th Gr)
This is a 2-1/2 year program that begins with the First Communion service
in the spring of 6th grade and concludes with a Service of Confirmation at the
beginning of 9th grade. The Confirmation program helps 7th- and 8th-graders learn
more about the Bible, Lutheranism, faith, and God while building
relationships with their peers, pastors, and church. During these very
important years, students are instructed weekly by pastors, small group
leaders, and youth program leaders.


Between both campuses, more than 1000 individuals participate in
Mount Olivet’s 14 choirs. We are dedicated to maintaining a music
ministry that strives for excellence and serves members of all ages
and abilities.
