Children's Choirs & Programs

3 years through sixth grade

Learn, Sing, and Grow!

Designed as a fully integrated approach to teaching scripture and bible stories within the context of a musical experience, all children, birth through sixth grade, are offered musical and faith-building opportunities in these combined musical education and faith-formation programs. Through singing, and by participating in musical games with rhythm patterns and melodic instruments, our young singers are taught in a musical atmosphere where they are recognized as a loved child of God and an important part of our church family.

Sunday School & Choir

We are excited to announce an enhanced educational model for our children on Sunday mornings that combines the best of Choir Sunday School and Sunday School! This fall, our kids will get to be a part of a music and arts-based Sunday morning experience that involves Bible study taught by our pastors, singing as a choir, participating in worship services, playing percussion instruments, art, creative drama, movement, as well as small group discussions and games. All activities that help us discover new church friendships, create community, and develop our faith!  We invite all of our children into this rich and rewarding experience!

When children enroll in a Sunday School class they are also enrolling in one of Mount Olivet’s children’s choirs. Sunday School is on Sunday Morning at 9 or 10am at both the Mpls & West campus for children ages 3 through 6th graders.

Cherub: Preschool age (3-5yrs)
Alleluia: Kindergarten & 1st grade
Hosanna: Grades 2 & 3
Chapel: Grades 4, 5, & 6

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!

Daytime and evening classes are led year-round by our licensed Musikgarten teachers, and families can purchase classroom resources to use at home if they wish.
