EVENTS


Events in Kids Ministries are intended to be fun because, let’s face it, if they weren’t, no one would come.
More importantly, though, our events are an opportunity to reach out to our friends and community and make
the doors of the church more accessible to everyone who walks through them. The Kids Team is continually
amazed at how uninhibited kids are to reach out to their friends and ask them to come to church for
regular programming or one of our four yearly events. We work to make the events fun,
but at the same time meaningful and engaging. 



sonrise saturday

Hands on Learning is the concept behind Sonrise Saturday. Christ’s death and resurrection takes on new meaning for kids and families as they transition through different stations associated with the Easter story. A light breakfast and craft round out the morning. The high point of this unique event is the Easter egg hunt on the grounds of the church which mixes faith and a special treat.

vacation bible school (vbs)

Held from 9:00-11:30am on a Monday-Thursday in July each summer, Vacation Bible School is the opportunity for kids ages 4 years to 5th grade to come together with friends to learn, to worship and to praise Christ. Many kids have come to Christ through the salvation message presented over the years. A different theme each year supports time together filled with great music, Bible lessons, crafts, games and snack. Finally, kids put service into action by supporting an organization through their offering and each year brings a fun, exciting challenge.  

TRUNK OR TREAT

We typically do a Fall Festival, but this year we'll try something new to us - Trunk or Treat! It is held the last Wednesday in October. We invite kids to dress up in their best (non-scary) costume and walk our parking lot to see all the creative trunks and get treats at each car. We serve hot chocolate and apple cider and pumpkin-shaped cookies.

oak hills kids christmas program

Remember the Christmas program when you were a kid? Well that is the Oak Hills Family Christmas. Held each year on the second Sunday evening in December (barring any weather interruptions), the program drives home the point that Christmas is the celebration of Jesus’ birth.
