Registration closes July 7.
Our Kids Church goal is to raise enthusiastic followers of Christ by helping them love to come to church and teaching them the Bible while they're here. We help them love to come to church by making it fun and having teachers show them love and interest in their lives. We teach them the Bible through teaching, song, crafts, prayer, and intentional free play. Watch our two videos below to see how we do this!
All of our teachers are background checked and trained, and we utilize a security check-in and check-out system. CLICK HERE if you'd like to print & complete out our Visitor Form. We serve snack in all of our babies – 6th grade classes. If your child has food restrictions, please provide an alternate snack so they can eat a snack too! We also have a lovely Mothers of Infants room available during all 3 services. You can relax in privacy with your infant while participating in the service via livestream.
(The videos below were filmed pre-Covid. Kindergarten and up currently wear masks.)

The Fawns, Chipmunks, and Raccoons, and Eagles Sunday School classes are filled with intentional play activities, Bible lessons, crafts, singing, snacks, and when the weather permits, free play in the preschool playground! (Yes, even our babies and toddlers have a Bible Class!)
Owls – Sasquatches incorporate developmentally appropriate teachings using Biblically solid curriculum and classroom schedules created to teach students in age appropriate activities. View a glimpse of our Sunday School classes on this excellent video.
Between 2nd & 3rd services, Fawns, Chipmunks, Raccoons, and Eagles play freely in their classrooms and playground, while K-6th graders are escorted to “The Island” (info below) for free play, allowing parents to leisurely visit after service and participate in one of our many adult classes.
During 3rd service (11:20-12:20), we offer Sunday School classes for children aged 0–5. These are similar to 2nd service (above) but not identical. (For one thing, we add a puppet show!)
For K-6th, we offer a large group service, “3rd Service Kids Church” (3KC), located upstairs in The Island (large youth group room). 3KC is a Christian Camp/VBS style service where we play games, recite the pledges to the Christian Flag and Bible, memorize Bible verses while singing songs to Jesus, and eat snack during a video lesson and teaching time. Free play follows until parents check out their children.

Kids love participating in both services on Sundays, so feel free to come to one of the worship services during one service and one of the Bible classes during the other. We offer a variety of adult classes during all three services. CLICK HERE to learn about these classes or visit our church app (text “fbcoh app” to 77977).
We also have special events throughout the year such as Vacation Bible School (July 12-16), Harvest Festival (October), Gingerbread House Making Party (December), and Kids Spring Weekend (May 7-8).
