The focus of our children’s ministry is to educate children of all ages about the love of Jesus. Our aim is to lead children to an understanding of God’s word and salvation through Jesus Christ. Children will have opportunities to experience God through Bible stories, music, scripture memorization, crafts, games, and other worship activities. We hope each child grows a deeper love for their Savior and is excited to share that love with others.
As a children’s ministry we want to come alongside parents in helping them teach and influence their children in a God-honoring way. We believe it’s the parents who have the important blessing of raising their children to know and serve the Lord. It is our desire to partner with parents in that biblical privilege.
But Jesus said, “Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of heaven.” – Matthew 19:14

Infant room: Our infant room is for babies from birth to age 1.However, if a child is 1 and not walking, parents have the option to choose if they would like to wait to send their children to the toddler room.
Toddler Room: Our toddler room is for children who are 1 and 2 years old. Children in the toddler room will learn truths from God’s word through Bible story books, coloring pages, and interactive play.
The children’s ministry at OFBC is committed to create an environment where children:
KNOW Jesus and His love
SHOW their love for Jesus to their family and friends
LIVE for Jesus each day
In every aspect of the children’s ministry we are dedicated to bringing the Word of God and believing it will transform the hearts of the children.
For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart. – Hebrews 4:12
