Youth Programs and Ministry - 7th-8th Grade

Mount Olivet Church offers a variety of programs for children and youth of all ages.  If you have questions regarding youth ministry, please contact a member of the youth ministry team or call the church office at 612.926.7651 for additional information regarding programs at either of our campus locations.

Confirmation

Confirmation at Mount Olivet is a two & a half year program beginning with the First Communion/Bible Presentation in the spring of 6th 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 a Confirmation small group leader, the Confirmation Director and Pastors.

Join the Junior High Staff in our summer environmental service project! The kids will be dropped off at MO West at 11:30am and we will start our service project at the church by planting flowers around the CFL. The purpose of this environmental service project is to put different types of flowers that will attract honey bees around the sides of the CFL building, as well as other landscape to make the scenery more livable for the honey bees. After we’re done with that we will head to Lake Ann at 1pm (when bus arrives) to have lunch at the picnic tables. Kids are welcome to bring swim suits, towels, sunscreen, beach games, etc. since life guards will be on duty while we’re there. We will go back to MO west in time for parent pick up at 4:30pm.
