Overview

Raising a child is a unique, and very interesting, experience for every parent. And as the child grows, changes are close to follow. Many questions regarding raising a child are brought to light. How do I respond to this? What should I do if they do that?

The heart and desire of the Children’s Ministry at Olive Branch Community Church is to come alongside parents training children in their adventures with the Lord. From newborns to sixth graders, children learn about the Lord through the Bible, worship through music, and prayer. What better way for your child to grow – in a safe, encouraging, and fun environment learning about God!

If you would like to know more about the Children’s Ministry, please contact Stephanie Baumgardner.

Our children’s ministry has a fun, engaging Facebook page where you can keep up with all the latest news. Visit us at https://www.facebook.com/OBCCKidzventure/.

What to Expect on Sunday

Children’s Church is offered at all Sunday services for babies through 6th grade. In an age-appropriate environment your children will study the Bible, worship with music, pray and learn how to serve our Lord. They will be with leaders who are trained and, for the safety of your child, have had their backgrounds checked through fingerprinting. Your child will be cared for in a safe, encouraging, and fun environment!

Babies up to 30 Months

Expect a well-staffed, safe nursery. When packing a diaper bag for your child, please include the following items:
1. A few disposable diapers.
2. Pacifier or other item, should your child need it for security.
3. A complete change of clothes, “just in case.”
4. A bottle of milk, formula, juice or water.

Nursery Check In:
Go straight to the Nursery area inside the main building to check in your child. You can check in your child by entering the last 4 digits of any phone number that is on file for your family with the check in computer that is available when you first enter the nursery.

Once your child has been checked in, labels should begin printing immediately. Place the child’s name tag on them, and place the Roster Tag on the clipboard. When you pick up your child, place the Parent Tag next to the Roster Tag.

30 Months to 6th Grade

Expect a safe and welcoming environment with leaders who will teach Biblical truths and the love of Jesus Christ. Children will explore God’s Word in fun and creative ways, through worship, Bible stories, activities and crafts.

Check In: Potty-trained 2-½ year olds through sixth graders can be checked in at the Kidz Block kiosks which are located on the corner of the Kidz Block building. The check-in kiosks are designed to allow the whole family to get checked in at once by entering the last 4 digits of any phone number that is on file for your family.

Once your child has been checked in, labels should begin printing immediately. Place the child’s name tag on them, and place the Roster Tag on the clipboard at the gazebo. When you pick up your child, place the Parent Tag next to the Roster Tag (the pick up location is listed on the parent tag).

What to Expect on Wednesday

Please note that all of the children’s ministry programs begin at 7pm on Wednesday nights.

Nursery is provided for babies up to 30 months in our main building.

Age 2-½ – Kindergarten meet in our Preschool Modular. Our midweek program digs deep into the Word of God to help kids understand scripture and how it applies to everyday life. Your kids will enjoy our age-appropriate and fun environment.

1st – 6th Graders: KidzVenture meets in the Kidz Block Auditorium. This is a discipleship program that strengthens children as they fellowship together, read and study the Bible, pray and serve. We start together with Bible study. Then the children break into small groups that are led by the same teachers every week as they go deeper into God’s Word and prayer. Becoming a disciple of Jesus Christ is not for a moment in time but transforms young minds and changes lives for eternity. Our KidzVenture program encourages children to make Jesus their life, their destination.
