Proverbs 22:6 says, “Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.” The children of our church will one day grow to be its leaders. At Ozark Baptist Church we believe that it is vital to reach out to and teach our children at young ages the love and mercy that God has for us. We have several ministries for children in the 1st through 5th grades to be involved in.
Sunday School We serve refreshments and allow the children time to socialize and play games. We then move in to a group setting that allows us to talk about what today’s lesson is going to be, have a real life application and also make any announcements about upcoming events. The children are then released to their grade level Sunday School rooms to hear about and discuss the day’s Bible story.
Encorekidz is a program on Sunday nights from 5-6pm to give children an opportunity to learn about music and worship while their
parents attend evening discipleship groups.
RA’s and GA’s are mission education groups for boys and girls that meet on Wednesday nights from 6-7pm throughout the school year.
Vacation Bible School This is an excellent time
for children to become immersed in God’s word while having a blast in
large and small group worship, music time, crafts, missions, recreation
and snacks. This year VBS is scheduled for June 18-22.
CentriKid is a camp that our rising 3rd graders – 5th graders can participate in each summer. It is an excellent camp that involves hearing devotions from great camp pastors, exciting music, several different tracks to participate in, and of course, OMC. Want to know more about CentriKid?
