Children’s Ministry

“Hear, O Israel: the LORD our God, the LORD is one. You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.”

Deuteronomy 6:4-7 

OBC Kids

6 Months-Kindergarten | 10:15AM | Every Sunday*

This ministry exists to provide a safe and loving environment for the children entrusted to our care so that their parents may be fed spiritually without undue concern.

Each Sunday, members serve our children by praying for them beforehand, showing up with a friendly smile, and a willing heart to share the Gospel with the sweet children the Lord has placed in their care! We ask that volunteers read a Bible story to the children and discuss it with them, allow time for free play, water/snack break, and if it’s sunny, they go outside to the playground! OBC Kids occurs during the service, and check-in may begin at 10:15AM.

*with some rare exceptions 


We would love to answer any questions you may have about our ministry or how to get involved.

The Grove

(1st – 4th grade) | During Sermon | Spring/Fall Semesters

We offer this during our spring and fall semesters, with time off during the holidays and summer time. We strive to offer a safe and fun environment for our elementary aged kiddos, while also teaching them biblical truth!

We use a curriculum called Praise Factory, which comes from Capitol Hill Baptist Church (the church that planted Oakhurst). This curriculum focuses on a specific passage or text, and has activities, games, songs and memory verses to go along with it. The students in the Grove learn more about God and his Word through our volunteers, and they have fun while doing it! The Grove occurs during the sermon, and check-in may begin at 10:15AM. 

Sunday School

(1 Year-5th Grade) | 9:15AM | Spring/Fall Semesters

Sunday School happens during adult Equipping Hour and starts at 9:15AM. 

Each Sunday, members show up to care for, love, and teach the children in our congregation about the Gospel! We use the Truth 7:8 curriculum in Sunday School, and children learn a Bible story, memorize Scripture, and do activities related to the lesson. Check-in begins as early as 9:05AM.
