Our vision for Kids at Oaks

We know family plays the most important role in the discipleship of children, and we want

to be a place where families learn, grow, and find encouragement.

Oaks Kids is a safe and secure place for your newborn through 5th grader

to come learn about God in a fun and exciting way!

What to expect


Kids Check-in​

We offer Kids Program at both services. We begin welcoming children into the kid’s space 15 minutes prior to service. With our secure check-in process, you can rest assured that your kids will be safe and well taken care of. If it’s your first time attending Oaks, there is a host at the kids program welcome desk who will help you find your way.


Bible Teaching

We use a selection of Bible-based curriculum to provide a fun, engaging, and age-appropriate way for the kids to learn God’s truth from the Bible and apply it in real-life situations and challenges.



We want your kids to build great friendships at Oaks Church, the kind that will encourage and strengthen them as they develop in their relationship with God.



At Oaks, we believe that it is very important to teach children how to pray and how to expect God to grow and change them. During class, we always take time to pray for each other.



Each of our classes engage in worship using age-appropriate songs. We teach many songs that are also sung during our adult service. As part of worship, we provide an opportunity for children to give offerings.

Patrick leads our Oaks youth groups, grades 2nd-8th.

Oaks Youth (The OY)

The OY is a monthly gathering of our elementary and middle school students, 2nd-8th grade. Our youth meet each month on Sunday evenings from 5:30-7pm. We are dedicated to providing a place for these students to connect with God, with other students, and with trusted leaders who truly desire to see them grow closer to Jesus.

Youth Group

The primary meeting space for our youth students is on Sunday evenings at the church building. The OY functions as a fun way for the kids to get to know one another through large group games, eating a meal together, and learning about Jesus from the Bible. 


Sunday Mornings

On Sunday mornings elementary students attend our kids program during service. We desire for them to grow in love for Jesus as they hear Bible teaching and worship God alongside others at Oaks Church.

We would love to hear from you! Contact our youth group leader Patrick with any questions.

High School

You might be wondering, “Where does a high school student fit in at Oaks Church?”

At this time we do not have a regular meeting high school group. However, we do have people at Oaks who are passionate and experienced in leading high schoolers and are looking forward to seeing our program grow. We would love to introduce you to some of these people to begin building relationships. Ultimately, our desire for the near future at Oaks is to build a dynamic and encouraging place for students to grow.

We are excited about High School students at Oaks and love both them and their families; we hope that you will check us out.

If you have a question or would like more information, contact our youth director Austin Tatum!
