CHILDREN AND YOUTH

Awana

–Awana meets at OBC September through April on Wednesdays from 6:30 to 8:00.
–This program is open for children preschool through 8th grade.
–AWANA is a weekly club open to kids from all churches and the community. They are taught to trust Christ for salvation and grow in enduring faith and service to God. Children learn Scripture, as well as respect for parents and authority.  We believe that kids represent the greatest opportunity to make a long-term impact on our world for Christ. Awana establishes welcoming, supportive environments where kids, from every background and cultural setting, learn how a personal relationship with Christ affects their everyday lives.

Sunday School

Sunday School meets every Sunday, year around, from 9:30-10:30 AM.  Classes are available for all ages.  Pre-K through Middle School use Answers Bible Curriculum, a full-featured program that covers the entire Bible chronologically, with the following principles integrated into each lesson:

  • We can trust all of God’s Word beginning in Genesis
  • The Bible presents true history
  • God’s plan of redemption is woven throughout Scripture
  • God’s attributes are displayed throughout the Bible
  • We must carefully and accurately interpret the Bible
  • We must be ready to give an answer for what we believe
  • We are to live in light of what the Bible teaches

Shade Tree Clubs

Shade Tree Clubs are a “back yard Bible club” that are held in someone’s yard.  (Shade Tree not required!)  These clubs take the gospel out into the neighborhood, reaching kids that aren’t able or perhaps aren’t willing to go to church or Sunday School.  Clubs feature gospel-centered teaching, fun songs, games, and snacks – all geared to reach children.  Even children that have grown up in church will learn and be challenged at these fun clubs.

Community Youth Group

CYG is for Middle and High School students.  We currently meet with a multi-church cooperative youth group from 2:30 – 4:30 on Sunday afternoons.  This high energy city-wide youth group meets here at Ottawa Bible Church in the Activity Building.
