There is a place for you here!

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.


Come learn and grow together in faith! Mount Olivet offers a variety of groups and programs for children and families. Some are ongoing; others happen periodically. Some are just for kids; others are for parents and caregivers. In all of our activities, we seek to support children and families in their journey of faith and give them tools and resources along the way. All are welcome.


Each week in Musikgarten, children birth to five years of age, along with the adults who love them, gather to create and experience the magic of music in safe and loving community. Classes are lead year-round by our licensed Musikgarten teachers, and families can purchase classroom resources to use at home if they wish. Join us as we sing, dance, wiggle, laugh, play instruments, and experience the joy that only music can provide! For more information, contact Colleen Roess at 612.767.2258 or by email.
