Oak Park’s Children’s Ministry’s goals are to introduce kids to Jesus, teaching them how to have a growing relationship with Him, and how to find and follow His plan for their lives. We provide classes for all children from newborn to 5th grade. Each class has dedicated teachers that will teach them about God’s love through relevant Bible stories.
We have Children’s Church at 11am on Sunday mornings during the regular Worship Service. These classes include: worship songs, a Biblical lesson, snack time, and a craft or game time. On Wednesday nights from 6-7pm we offer a ministry that’s called Orange for grades K-5th. This weekly ministry includes a Biblical topic themed lesson, game time in our gymnasium, and an activity based off the lesson from that night.
We work hard to ensure the health and safety of all of our students. Each student is required to check-in with a parent or legal guardian at one of our check-in stands located in each building. Outside entries are locked during services and remain locked until the end of services for safety protocols. Each student is required to be checked-out by a parent or legal guardian until they can leave the classroom. Each classroom is sanitized and cleaned each week between meetings.
Some of the events we have for our Children’s Ministry throughout the year include: our annual Easter Egg Hunt, Church Camp, Trunk or Treat, swimming pool parties, and two annual Fun Nights! We would be thrilled to have your children come be a part of our Children’s Ministry to feel loved, be safe, learn about Jesus, and have a blast all at the same time!
