We also offer additional choirs (Cherub and Joy Choirs) for those who would like more singing opportunities.

 THIRD GRADE

This is the beginning of your child’s Confirmation process at Olivet. The “Introduction to the Bible” class will be held Sunday, September 16, 9:45-10:40 a.m. or Wednesday, September 19, 5;45-6:45 p.m. for all third graders and their parents. (This class is held during Sunday or Wednesday School). Bibles will be presented to third graders on Sunday, September 23 at the 8:30 and 10:45 a.m. worship services, or on Wednesday, September 26 at the 5:45 p.m. worship service.

FOURTH GRADE

The fourth graders at Olivet have an opportunity to learn more from their Bibles by reading and studying the Gospel of Mark. Fourth graders and their parents will meet together to find out about personal and family devotions during this level of their Confirmation process. Together, the family is expected to complete a daily devotion book at home, which takes about one month. The class will be held  during Sunday and Wednesday School on Sunday, November 4 or Wednesday, November 7. There will be a recognition of fourth graders and the completion of their Confirmation requirement at a worship service in December.

 GUARDIAN ANGELS

Attention second graders! At Olivet, we have a special program just for you! It’s our Guardian Angel program. Sometime this year, you may be called to serve as a Guardian Angel. A Guardian Angel is a special friend to a baby who is baptized here at Olivet. You are asked to be a friend to the baby and also to pray for them. This is a wonderful way to connect younger members of the congregation with each other.
