We are here to partner with families to raise children to be all that God desires them to be - to know, love, and serve Jesus Christ by creatively communicating the truth of God's Word in all our kidz ministry programming!

Happy Children with Easter Eggs


The OGBC GroveKidz children's ministry is provided during the Sunday school hour for children from birth through grade 5, and during our main service for children from birth-age 4.

Our ministry leaders and volunteers are all screened, trained, dedicated and passionate about helping to raise up a generation of children to glorify God, love one another, serve our world, and make disciples

Our desire is that every child LOVES coming to church and so we strive to make Oak Grove an exciting place for children to grow, learn, and have a blast! Because kids are active learners, we offer rotations through a variety of learning opportunities including videos, games, hands-on activities, crafts, music, and more. Ours is a nurturing and interactive environment where every child is welcomed and loved.

OGBC services are a family-friendly environment. We believe that children are a blessing from God and are a vital part of every local church. Because of that conviction, our elementary age children stay in the sanctuary to worship with their families during our Sunday morning services.

Parent & Child Dedication Services

We believe that our kids are a blessing from God - gifts from His very hands. Parent-Child dedications are celebratory ceremonies of public declaration we host throughout the year at OGBC signifying the partnership between the church and the home to disciple children as forever-followers of Jesus. We encourage parents to join us for two prerequisite dedication classes offered in the weeks leading up to this celebration.
