KID'S MINISTRY

Treehouse

The goal of the Treehouse Children's Ministry is to provide a safe, exciting and fun learning environment during all three services for children 2 years to 5th grade.

 

 

The Treehouse  exists to guide our children to:

> Focus their lives on God

> Offer themselves in service to others

> Reach out to children in the community

> Challenge them to grow in Christ-likeness

> Encourage one another in love

Nursery and Toddler

The Oakwood Nursery and Toddler Departments are a loving and peaceful environment designed to care for and nurture children birth through Three years of age. The Nursery Room is designed for Newborns through 13 to 15 months old. In order to be promoted to the Toddler Room, we recommend that your baby has developed a “sturdy walk.”

Each room is equipped with an environment to meet your child’s needs at each developmental stage.

 

We recommend parents bring a diaper bag and bottle/cup both labeled with your child's name. You may also want to bring a change of clothes for your child just in case it is needed. Please list any food allergies as you sign your child into our care. Butter cookies and water are offered at each service as a snack for our Toddlers.

 

The Oakwood Nursery and Toddler Departments are available during every adult worship service.
