At OCEC we want every person to have a growing relationship with Jesus, no matter what age they are. We believe this can begin in the nursery, where each child is loved, prayed for, and cared for. This continues into Sunday School, where children are taught about the amazing God who made them, loves them, and sent Jesus to teach and to save them. Kids will learn how we get along as a church family, and how we love, care for and forgive each other daily. Our staff loves Jesus and they love His kids!
Loving care for your infant or toddler is offered each hour in our MiniSprouts Nursery. We have a great staff who have been vetted through our Child Protection Policy process and are excited to spend time with your child, sharing their love for Jesus with them while you are worshipping or serving in another ministry. We also offer a nursing room where you can watch the service if you need some privacy.
SproutsLife Sunday School
Sunday School is offered each hour for SproutsLife kiddos. 2 and 3 year olds meet in room C1, and 4 year olds and Kindergarten meet in room C4. We will study the same Bible story each hour because repetition is key for preschoolers. Because we have a different set of teachers and different activities planned each hour, kids are excited to stay, and we encourage families to attend both services.
SproutsLife Family Fun Events
Each quarter we plan an outreach event for our SproutsLife families. In the past we have offered a Fall Fun Fest, a Snowman Celebration, a Buggy Brunch and a Fun in the Sun party. These are great times to invite friends with children to come and have fun with us, and introduce them to your church family. We feel called to seek opportunities to introduce our friends to Jesus, and these events are meant to help you in that endeavor.
