OSCKids exists to REACH KIDS and BUILD FAMILIES.
Our goal in OSC Kids is that through our age appropriate teaching, worship, activities and small groups your kids will fall in love with Jesus and develop their own personal relationship with Him. Each week our goal is that kids would leave knowing that: God loves them, we believe in them, and church is fun!
What To Expect
When you check-in your child at the OSC Kid’s Kiosk, you will be given a unique coded tag and a matching coded name tag for your child. The only person who may pick up your child is the person who holds this unique code tag. All of our OSCKids Team Members have a background check, and no adults are allowed to be alone with your child. You can participate in the service assured that your child is having fun in a safe environment. If your child should need you during the service, their unique code will be flashed on the screen in the Worship Center so you may attend to your child’s need.
*Check-in is required at the OSC Kids’ Kiosk. Parents can then drop-off/pick-up their child at each environment. For the safety of your child, we ask that parents present their code tag which identifies their child at pick-up.
Birth - 23 Months
The Ark is staffed with professional, caring adults who provide a safe and secure environment conducive to the child’s physical, social and spiritual growth. When you are confident in leaving your baby in the care of our staff, you can then worship with a sense of security. We have taken great care to prepare our nursery rooms to be the best environment for your baby with age-appropriate toys and an opportunity to interact with others. As we hold the babies, we pray for them to receive all that God has for them in life. We believe every child we pray for will be touched by God.
2 - 3 years Olds
At OSC, we know that your child is a precious gift. That’s why we’ve created an environment that is nurturing, safe, clean, and inviting for you and your little one. It’s always a big step to trust someone with the care of your children, so our Reignforest teachers are trained and equipped to be the best caregivers possible! Our program includes a simple Bible story, crafts, and music during each of our weekend services.
4 - 5 year Olds
Our goal is to encourage preschoolers in a growing, loving relationship with Jesus Christ and others in an atmosphere where they feel a sense of belonging. We present biblical learning materials with a hands-on approach to help establish in the hearts of the children an active faith toward God and His Word. We teach the simplicity of the Gospel through a variety of stories, crafts, songs, and other activities. Every lesson taught reinforces Bible truths. Children can be ministered to individually during this time.
Our services are designed to present the love of Jesus to elementary kids in a way that is exciting, engaging, and practical. Every week they play games, experience worship, work on a Bible verse, and learn through live and video teaching. They also receive prayer and make friends in our small group time.
Throughout the New Testament, the Bible talks about baptism as an outward expression of an inner decision made to follow Jesus. In the Bible, we see that Jesus’ parents dedicated Him to the Lord (Luke 2:22-40), then He was later baptized as an adult (Matthew 3:16-17).
No one has greater potential to impact a child’s spiritual development than their parents. Proverbs 22:6 says: “Train up a child in the way he should go; and when he is old, he will not depart from it.”
At OSC, the dedication ceremony is intended to be a commitment between parents and God on behalf of their child. Parents are promising to raise their children in the faith until they are old enough to make their own personal decision to follow Christ.
