We Want Your Kids to Love Church.

That’s why we are committed to creating safe and fun environments where your children are taught about the Bible and the love of Jesus through relevant, age-appropriate kids facilities. Our ultimate hope is to see a generation of children FIND LIFE by come to know God at an early age, GROW in his truths and MAKE A DIFFERENCE in their sphere of influence.

Fun

We bring kid-inspired fun to every classroom through imaginative activities, interactive games, and bright, friendly environments. Our team is made up of people who feel called to share the love of Jesus with kids, and every Sunday they help bring excitement and enjoyment to your child’s church experience.

Safety

Your child’s safety is incredibly important to us, and we are committed to a system that creates a safe environment. This means our staff and volunteers in every service and classroom have a working with children check and have completed a background check. Our entire team is thoroughly trained and immersed in a culture of safety and cleanliness with the wellbeing of your child in mind. We also have an electronic check in system.

Learning

As a church, we are always investing in the next generation, and this starts with babies and kids. From praying over infants to sharing relevant Bible lessons with school aged kids. Our goal at Oasis is for each child to learn about the Bible and experience God’s presence weekly in real and tangible ways.

Checking In

When you arrive, look for our Oasis Kids check-in station. One of our friendly team members will help check your child into our system. You and your child will receive personalized, coordinating ID tags unique to your family and your visit, which you will show after the service in order to pick up your child from the pick up gate. If you lose your ID tag, you will be required to show your Driver’s License in its place.

At check-in, we will ask for the following personal information: Family member’s names, children’s names and birthdates, address, phone number, and any special instructions such as allergies or special needs for your child. You can also choose to pre-register your child online before arrival.

If for any reason we need to contact you during the service, you will receive a text message on your phone or an Oasis kids team member will come and find you. If you see receive a message, please exit the auditorium, go to the Oasis Kids area, and ask a staff member to take you to your child’s room.

What is your particular passion for kids?

My passion for kids is to see a generation encounter Jesus in a personal way by encouraging, teaching, and equipping children to be devoted disciples of Jesus. Teaching them truths from the bible about the love of God, the life of Jesus, who they are in God, the power of the Holy Spirit and worship and prayer. My heart is to see children enjoying deep fellowship with God in His love, and choosing to love, serve, and obey Him with all their heart, walking in truth and power as they grow in the knowledge and love of God.
