We’d love to have you join us as we seek to raise enthusiastic followers of Christ!
 
 
All of our teachers are background checked, and we utilize a security check-in and check-out system. CLICK HERE if you'd like to print & fill 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!
 
A lovely Mothers of Infants room is available during all 3 services. You may relax in privacy with your infant while remaining a part of the worship service by listening to the service in the room.
 

During 1st service (8:30-9:30), families bring their children of all ages into the worship center for the service.

During 2nd Service (9:50 - 11:00), we offer several Sunday School classes for all children: 
 

Fawns: 0 – 24 months
Chipmunks: 2 – 3 years
Raccoons: 4 – 5 years
Owls: Kindergarten
Hawks: 1st grade
Eagles: 2nd grade
Sea Lions: 3rd grade
Orcas: 4th grade
Sasquatches: 5th – 6th grade

(Our Youth Pastor Dan offers youth group for 7th – 12th grade during this time, and on Wednesday evenings.)

The Fawns, Chipmunks, and Raccoons’ Sunday School classes are filled with intentional activities, Bible lessons, crafts, singing, snacks, and when the weather permits, free play in the preschool playground! (Yes, even the 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, and Raccoons 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 or head to an adult class.

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 pledge to the Christian Flag and Bible, sing songs to Jesus, eat snack during a video lesson and teaching time, and end with a fun video of the previous week’s morning game. 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 Harvest Festival (October 25), Gingerbread House Making Party (December 2), Kids Spring Weekend (May 1-3, 2020), and Vacation Bible School (July 13-17, 2020).

We have an email list used to communicate happenings within Children’s Ministry. Email me if you’d like me to add you to that list.

Please let us know if you have any questions about our Children’s Ministry. We’d love to have you join us!
