At OVC we believe in our kids! Sunday school is not babysitting. Our purpose is having fun while helping kids develop life skills that will enable them to meet the challenges they face and the choices they will have to make in today's world. Even very young children can learn ways of showing love and obedience for God in everyday life.
Weekly lessons include a variety of both Old and New Testament character driven bible stories that will lead children to discover key ways in which they can live as Jesus’ disciples. As children focus on the words of Jesus (simplified for preschoolers), they will be led to consider the ways in which they can follow His example. Because children learn in diverse ways, we have a variety of activities suited to different learning styles.
Our emphasis is on having fun in a safe environment, while at the same time learning to live every day for God as His courageous disciples! Anyone who volunteers to work with children at OVC is required to complete the Plan to Protect program.
We believe in our youth! Each one has an amazing future, that from our perspective is yet “to be determined” (TBD), but from God’s perspective looks like a well crafted and cunning plan! Our young people are filled with energy and potential and are a vital part of the OVC community.
TBD Youth runs every Tuesday night for Junior and Senior High. Our hope is to facilitate an encounter that balances fun and social engagement with a rich worship and learning experience to help our youth develop vital friendships and a deep and lasting relationship with Christ as His disciples.

Young Families Group
We love our young families and we believe that raising and discipling children is not something that should be done in isolation. When we all come together as one big family to connect and support one another, our community and our families are stronger for it.
Some of our community members have put together a Young Families Group that meets regularly to share a family meal, give the kids a chance to play together, and study the word of God.
