What's Happening at OP Kids

We do many things outside of our regular Sunday and Wednesday church-wide gatherings. We celebrate holidays with fun traditions, we mark the passage of time together by milestone celebrations, we take children to camp...all because we know that faith development includes building time-honored traditions at the local church. 

For the specifics for each of these events, check out our Google calendar and add our events to your personal calendar! Import the calendar here.

We can't wait to see you!

  • Easter Egg Hunt

    Each year, on the Saturday before Easter Sunday, we have a big Easter Egg Hunt! Our church members fill over 10,000 Easter Eggs! In addition to the egg hunt, there is face-painting, animal balloons, and more! We can't wait to hunt for eggs, get a balloon from a clown, play games, and do crafts with you!

    Community Baby Blessing is a special event that happens each year on Mother's Day. We recognize and celebrate babies who have been born in the past year. Our congregation gathers around the families and prays a blessing over them.

  • Promotion day

    Each August we move the kids on up to their next class. We celebrate the relationships we've made over the past year and meet new teachers with giant smiles. 

    Also on this Sunday, our former 5th grade friends graduate from OP Kids to OP Youth. As they begin their transition year, where they spend some time with us in Children's Ministry and some time in the Youth Group, we cover them in prayers and blessings, hugs and fist bumps for the next phase of their journey. We present them with a Bible in 2nd service and savor the milestones they accomplished and share with them our hopes and dreams for these pivotal Middle School years.

  • block party

    Each fall we host a giant block party! We have food trucks, inflatables, a DJ and lots fun games. Wear your costumes because included in the block party is a trunk-or-treat! 

    Open to all! Bring a friend!

  • christmas musical

    Our kids love to celebrate the birth of Christ in a very special way.

    Beginning in September, 5th and 6th graders audition for speaking parts and song solos, then rehearse each week through December. On the night of the big performance, our younger kids K-4th grade also share in this production as part of the chorus. After the big show, we celebrate with cookies and milk!
