Welcome to our Oak Tree Kids page! One of our core values revolves around reaching the next generation. Every week, we create a safe, welcoming, and spiritually focused environment so that our kids can learn about God's Word. Our caring teachers and mentors create a special lesson, with activities, and teachings from the Bible that are just right for your children. The aim of Oak Tree Kids aligns with Oak Tree's mission.
Mission: Our aim is to partner with parents and to nurture the heart of each child so they can know, love, and serve the Lord.
Our Approach to Children's Ministry
1. Teaching Kids About God’s Word
We believe the Bible is more than just stories. It helps kids understand God's love and forgiveness. Our goal is for them to trust in Jesus and have eternal life.
2. Equipping Parents to Lead at Home
Parents play a big role in teaching faith. We support parents with tools and tips to guide their kids spiritually. Our weekly newsletter helps parents get ready for Sunday School.
3. Training Servant Leaders
Our team gets ready to teach kids with special training. They use a curriculum that includes songs, stories, and activities. This helps kids learn about God in a fun way.
4. Creating a Safe Place
We make sure kids have a safe and happy place to learn. Safety is important to us. We want kids to enjoy coming and learning about God in a safe environment.

Ephesians. 6:1-4
But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have firmly believed, knowing from

I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth. 3 John 1:4
