 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 17, 9:45-10:45am or Wednesday, September 20, 5;45-6:45pm 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 24 at the 8:30 and 11:00 worship services, or on Wednesday, September 27 at the 5:45pm 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. 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.

MUSICAL OPPORTUNITIES
SUNDAY SCHOOL MUSIC

Music is offered weekly during Sunday School for students in preschool – fifth grade. The time is spent singing traditional and contemporary church songs, and preparing for special performances in worship, at the Christmas Program, and on Mother’s Day.
