Welcome to ODCC CHILDREN’S MINISTRY! The Children’s Ministry at ODCC is active and growing, spanning from Infants to Fifth Grade. Come on in and visit our current and upcoming programs.
Because we care about the safety of our children (and yours!), all staff and volunteers have completed background checks with the Michigan Department of Human Services.
For the Little Ones
A nursery is available for infants and toddlers (to three years old). The nurseries are located near the sanctuary, and can be easily spotted. Just look for the large purple hippos on the sign!
During the 10am worship service we have special programming for the kids. The preschoolers and kindergarteners meet together each week, and the 1st-5th graders have a separate class. On the last Sunday of each month the older kids join their families in the worship service.
Children's Christian Education
Sunday school provides a Bible-based education. Programs are offered on Sunday, from 9:00a.m to 9:50a.m.
Preschool-5th Grade is offered in four classes:
- K-1st Grade
- 2nd-3rd Grade
- 4th-5th Grade
The Wednesday Night Program gives the children of ODCC an age-appropriate, Bible-based, mid-week learning opportunity (during the school year).
Children's Summer Activities
The Vacation Bible School program gives the children of ODCC an age-appropriate summer program opportunity.
Unlike the older youth that can go off-campus for activities, children at this age need the programs to come to them.
- Missions teaching
- Sharing Jesus
Michiana Christian Service Camp
Our camp, located in Niles, Michigan, gives the children of local Christian Churches an age-appropriate summer camping opportunity. This is a camp for all ages! Brian Smith is the camp coordinator; see him with any questions you may have.
