Update on In-Person Activities
Due to Covid-19, all in-person gatherings have been postponed. Please contact the Director of Children & Family Ministry, Katy Michaletz at 612.767.2245 or by email with questions.
At a child’s baptism, parents and sponsors make a promise to help their children grow in the Christian faith and life. As a community of faith, Mount Olivet also makes a promise to support the newly baptized in their new life in Christ. We carry out this promise through educational programs, like Sunday School, and by partnering with families as they journey in faith with their children.
Baptisms are held at the Minneapolis Campus during the 12:00 pm service (11:00 am in the Summer) and at the West Campus during the 11:00 am service (10:00 am during the Summer). Families may also request a baptism to be held outside of Sunday morning worship; these normally occur just after the final service on Sundays.
Baptism classes are offered on the third Sunday of each month at the Minneapolis Campus at 9:00 am and at the West Campus at 8:00 am. We strongly encourage all children and families to attend a baptism class. You can find the dates and register for a baptism class here.
We believe that God’s grace is for all—members of Mount Olivet and non-members—and we look forward to celebrating this special occasion with you and your family.
Available baptismal dates will vary based on the worship schedule and will be held at our Minneapolis campus during the 12noon service (11am service during the Summer worship season), or our West campus during our 11am service (10am during the Summer worship season). Baptisms held outside of congregational worship, normally on Sundays after the last worship service, will be determined according to the family’s and officiating pastor’s availability.
