A place for your children to learn about God
One of the greatest opportunities we have in life is to raise our children to become godly leaders who are spiritually mature and morally responsible. However, in the fast paced, “morally neutral” world of today, this is becoming more and more challenging.
Our goal at OHBC Kids is to offer spiritual assistance by partnering with you and providing a place where your child will learn about God’s love for them and the importance of developing a lifelong relationship of obedience to him. Our goal each and every week is to come alongside you as a parent to ensure your child develops and grows in their relationship with God and others.
Birth - 2 years old
In the OHBC Kids Nursery, children begin learning about God’s love for them in a clean, safe, and nurturing environment. This environment is created and intentionally designed to lay the foundation of God’s love for your child throughout his or her earliest years.
Your children will learn through the use of their own senses by:
- Listening to loving, influential adults read them stories from the Bible.
- Hearing Bible songs and lullabies.
- Interacting with other children their own age.
- Exploring developmentally appropriate toys that help develop their basic motor skills.
OHBC Kids Nursery is available during every regularly scheduled worship service.
3 years old - Kindergarten
Preschool age children are constantly moving, touching, and investigating. They learn through experiences, imitation, and repetition. Because children’s moral development begins to form at the age of two, we implement more intentional Bible teaching and learning during this time.
OHBC Kids Preschool uses animated videos and utilizes interactive activities, games, crafts, and songs to help the children apply the lessons to their lives.
OHBC Kids Preschool is available during every weekend worship service.
1st - 5th Grade
Elementary children are at a critical point in their lives, during which they begin to understand and develop their morals and values. This crucial period in a child’s life will impact their decisions and actions throughout their life.
Every weekend the elementary ministry utilizes many different teaching methods: live action videos and performances, object lessons, small group lessons, music, and more! All of this is done in an age-appropriate environment to teach children God’s love for them, as well as the principles and values that will help them become the leaders God has designed them to be.
OHBC Kids Elementary is available during every weekend worship service.
3 year old - 5th grade
The name “Awana” comes from the first letters of the phrase “approved workmen are not ashamed” (2 Timothy 2:15). Awana is a ministry that helps parents and churches raise children to know, love, and serve God. It is a Bible-based children’s program that is centered on the gospel and makes Scripture memorization fun.
Awana Clubs are held on Wednesday nights from 6:30-8:00pm. During Awana Clubs you can expect your child to:
- Work one-on-one with trained leaders to memorize and understand key Bible verses that teach children the importance of knowing and following God.
- Gather in a larger group to for singing and a Bible message.
- Play games that unleash their energy while simultaneously learning the importance of teamwork and sportsmanship.
