At OBC Kids, each child is valued and taught the Word of God in age appropriate ways that let our children learn and have fun during their time here.
Each week significant effort is invested in the lives of our OBC kids.
We always hear of how much ‘fun’ they had during their church experience!
More importantly to us, and hopefully to you, as parents, is that we know they are also worshiping God and hearing His word taught in an age appropriate manner.
Oaklands OBC kids volunteers undergo a detailed application process that includes a criminal check and are involved in training sessions each year to ensure top quality care.
If a child comes to us with extra needs beyond the regular classroom, we do our best to find one-to-one caregivers to meet those needs. These individuals give support in the classroom to the child and the teachers.
On Sunday mornings, OBC kids enjoy the worship/singing time with their families in the main service at 10:00 am.
After the singing, kids head downstairs to their classrooms where they continue to experience creative Bible teachings, upbeat worship music and interactive crafts and games.
Classes and Age Groups
Nursery (Birth – 1.5 years)
Our Nursery Room is filled with interactive toys and books. We also have a live simulcast available for parents, so if they need to be with their child for any reason, they will not miss the sermon presented that day.
Our toddler room is always alive with excitement and joy. It’s where children between the ages of 18 months and 3 years’ experience “Sunday school".
Our OBC toddlers hear lessons and stories simple enough for them to understand and enjoy. The morning also consists of some occasional coloring, songs, and because they are busy exploring at this age, lots of free play.
Volunteers seek to reinforce good play habits with their peers and model positive, God-honoring ways to handle conflict.
Age 4 – Grade 5
Our desire is to come alongside parents and guardians to equip, support, and inspire OBC kids ages 4-grade 5, as the primary spiritual leader in the lives of their children.
Our role is to supplement the teaching supplied in the home with church-based programs, activities, teaching, and events in order to help children understand who God is and what Jesus has done for them.
It is our goal in this ministry to help children and families understand that Jesus needs to be the foundation for life from their earliest days. Children will see the love of Christ gently modelled through our OBC volunteers who care for their needs by simply sharing God’s word through the safe, fun, environment in which they play and learn.
Your child will have opportunity to learn, worship, and explore in both small and large group settings through relevant, purposeful, and engaging activities.
Explorer Kids is a program where kids explore the Bible and learn about the God who loves them in a safe, nurturing and fun environment.
Explorer Kids highlights scripture memorization and application with the support of caring and committed leaders.
Children participate in upbeat worship music, games time, large group Bible teaching and small group activities.
