Junior High Alive (Grades 6, 7, & 8)

Growing in our faith and friendships through service and fellowship events.

Connecting Kids to God and Each Other

Junior High Alive(JHA) is a way for 6th, 7th, and 8th graders to enjoy fun events, participate in important service opportunities, and enjoy fellowship with peers and mentors.  JHA activities include retreats, social events, Sunday Serve, Adopt-a-Grandparent, and other service opportunities. JHA events often coordinate with Confirmation and Chancel Choir activities.


Adopt-a-Grandparent (AGP) is a junior high service project for 7th & 8th Grade Confirmation students.  Every other Monday we meet at the Mount Olivet Home and participate with the residents there in intergenerational activities.  Activities include bingo, pet night, craft nights, Thanksgiving service & the MN Zoomobile.  Through these activities the residents at the home & the junior high students form friendships and a chance to enjoy one another’s company.

6th Grade Starter (Pre-Confirmation)

The 6th Grade Starter Program at Mount Olivet is a one year program. The program helps students transition from Choir Sunday School to our Confirmation program that starts in 7th Grade. Wednesday programming will focus on Bible Studies, Sharegroups, Games, and Service Projects. Our main goal during the year is for students to strengthen their community of church peers. While participating in the 6th Grade Starter program students build relationships with their peers, Youth Staff, Pastors, and their church family.
