We’re in the race for the hearts of our kids and we want to win them over to know and love Jesus! 

Our mission is to help kids come to KNOW Jesus, GROW in their relationship with Jesus, and GO and tell others about Jesus.

We provide a safe and secure place for ALL kids from infants thru 5th grade to learn about Jesus each week. All of our volunteers are background checked and have been trained to ensure your child has the safest and best experience possible.

Baby Church

Birth - Two Years Old

In Baby Church, our babies and toddlers get to hear Bible stories, sing songs, and feel the love of Jesus from each of our volunteers. It is open for every service and located just outside the sanctuary.  We have a variety of engaging and stimulating toys, books, and age-appropriate manipulatives.

Early Childhood

Three Years Old - Kindergarten

In our early childhood program, kids will hear a Bible story and complete activities that reinforce the lesson of the day. 

We serve nut-free snacks and have play time in the indoor playground. This program is available during the 9:30am and 11am Sunday services. Kids four and under are welcome in Baby Church at the 8am Sunday service as well as the Thursday night service.

Kidz Zone

1st - 5th Grades

Kidz Zone begins with large group time in the brand new Kidz Chapel. This time includes songs, games, and a Bible lesson. 

The second half of our time is spent in small groups, where there is deeper discussion and activities that reinforce the lesson of the day. 

Kidz Zone is open during the 9:30am and 11am Sunday services.

Special Needs at ovcn

We value our kids with special needs and believe that they aren’t just a program – they are a part of our church. We work to train our volunteers and intentionally resource our kids with sensory items, head phones, manipulatives, weighted lap pads, American Sign Language interpreters, and more so that they can be integrated into the classroom with their peers. If a child needs a one-on-one buddy we work with the parents and child to provide one.

Special Needs children, youth, and adults are welcome at all events because they are a part of our church family. If special resources are needed in order to attend, we work together to provide that for the family. 

Please email us using the link below and let us know you are coming and we will have the resources ready for you and your child.
