DECEMBER 19th and 26th SCHEDULE: For our babies – preschool classes, everything remains the same as always. For our K-6th graders: On December 19, we will not have classes during 1st service and we will have Kids Church during 2nd Service. On December 26, we will neither have classes during 1st Service nor Kids Church during 2nd Service. These are great weeks to have your K-6th graders join you in service! (We will have coloring pages available for younger children.)
We offer a Children's Program for infants - 6th grade during both 1st and 2nd services.
Chipmunks: 2 years
Raccoons: 3 years
Eagles: 4-5 years
Hawks: 1st-2nd grade
Sea Lions: 3rd grade
Orcas: 4th grade
The Fawns, Chipmunks, Raccoons, and Eagles Sunday School classes are filled with intentional play activities, Bible lessons, crafts, singing, snacks, offering, memory verses, a puppet show, and when the weather permits, free play in the preschool playground! (Yes, even our babies and toddlers have a Bible Class!)
Our Owls – Sasquatches Sunday School classes 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.
During 2ND SERVICE (10:30-11:40) for 0-5 years, we offer Sunday School classes. These are similar to 1st Service (above) but not identical.
During 2ND SERVICE (10:30-11:40) for K-6th grade, we offer a large group Christian Camp/VBS style service called “2nd Service Kids Church” (2KC) located upstairs in The Island (our large youth group room). We recite the pledges to the Christian Flag and Bible, memorize Bible verses while singing songs to Jesus, eat snack during a video lesson and teaching time, and play games. Free play follows until parents checkout their children.

Between 1st and 2nd 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 and 2nd Service Kids Church, allowing parents to leisurely visit after service and participate in one of our many adult classes.
Kids love participating in both services, 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 both services. CLICK HERE to learn about these classes or visit our church app (text “fbcoh app” to 77977).
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 ask that all families stay home and get healthy if anyone in the family has experienced vomitting, diarrhea, or had a fever in the last 24 hours. We serve snack in all of our babies – 6th grade classes, so 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 both services where you can relax in privacy with your infant while participating in the service via livestream.
We also have special events throughout the year such as Kids Spring Weekend (April 29-May 1), Vacation Bible School (June 27-July 1, 2022), our Harvest Festival (October), and our Gingerbread House Making Party (December).
