Learn, Sing, and Grow in our Faith!
Mount Olivet believes in and values the numerous benefits of learning through participation in musical programs for children from birth through sixth grade. At each developmental stage, children are led by professional educators in a curriculum that demonstrates the worth of combining music and faith formation. Music ignites all areas of emotional and social development in children and enhances self-confidence and creativity. Music brings children together, helps them connect with each other, and assists children in developing a lifelong community of church friends.
Children’s Choirs (Sunday School)
Our unique music-based Sunday School classes, taught by music educators, provide biblical faith formation within the context of a musical experience. Children ages Pre-K through 6th grade are provided opportunities to sing, play instruments, participate in worship, and learn the faith stories and promises of God’s unending love for them.
Sunday School Classes:
- Cherub: Preschool age
- Alleluia: Kindergarten and 1st grade
- Hosanna: 2nd and 3rd grades
- Chapel: 4th, 5th and 6th grades

Each week in Musikgarten, children birth to three years of age, along with the adults who love them, gather to create and experience the magic of music in a safe and loving community. Join us as we sing, dance, wiggle, laugh, play instruments, and experience the joy that only music can provide! Musikgarten brings together the values of music, nature, and early childhood education. The philosophy behind Musikgarten is to provide babies and toddlers with some of the most enjoyable parts of childhood: music and movement. Early music education is a powerful tool that can help children exercise their speech, social skills, self-esteem, focus, motor skills, creativity and many other important stages of early childhood development. The best part of Musikgarten is that it makes all of these things fun!
Classes are 30 minutes in length and offered on Tuesday morning, Tuesday evening, Thursday morning or Friday morning to fit almost every schedule.
