Leaders and Staff

 Keeping everyone safe is important to us at OUMC.  All volunteers and staff fill out an application, undergo a background check, complete yearly Safe Sanctuaries training, and complete Safe Gatherings training/new background check/reference check every three years.  You are welcome to view our safety policy HERE (link to Safe Sanctuaries PDF).

Partnership

We believe in connecting your children with wonderful caring leaders who will pour into your kids each week year after year but we also know that fatih sticks at home. We want to partner with parents and give you the resources you will need to help grow your child’s faith. Follow up questions and devotions are sent home each week. We have a parent resource center with books, articles, worship activities, and many other resources.  We also have many parent gatherings and family events. 

Sunday Mornings

All ages birth - 5th grade

Children of all ages meet Sunday mornings at 10am for Sunday school. Children birth through graduation utilize the GROW Curriculum.

During Worship

Kindergarten through 5th are encouraged to attend worship at 9am or 11am with their families. Children’s activities and moments are in each service. We believe it is important for children to participate and be a part of the worship service.

Childcare is available for children 8 weeks to Pre-k during all services.

Wednesday

Route 45 is for all 4th and 5th graders and their friends. We meet on Sunday nights from 6:30pm to 8:00pm. We have various trips, retreats, and events throughout the year designed with our tweens in mind.

We value the differences in us all. We want to meet all physical, emotional, and spiritual needs every time your child comes to church. Let’s work together to develop an individualized plan to help meet the needs of your family.  Please contact Chrissy Gray at cgray@oumclive.org to schedule a meeting.

When leaving your child in the children’s area it is important to alway update your family information or pre-register to make check in a breeze.
