Children are a blessing from God and are a very important part of the Oakville Presbyterian Church family. It is our desire to have every child grow to love God’s Word and understand the value of applying it to their lives. Through age-appropriate lessons, activities, and group participation, children ages 3 through 6 learn biblical truths and real-life lessons they can apply to their lives every week.
Our children’s church program is taught by regular Oakville Presbyterian Church family members who volunteer their time to minister to our young children. You don’t have to be a trained professional to do this job. You simply need to be a committed follower of Jesus Christ, willing to serve and love kids.

We offer Children’s Church on most Sunday mornings beginning in September through May. The main purpose of Children’s Church is to provide a space and worship time created just for children to better support their learning of how and why we worship together in “big church.” During Children’s Church, the children will learn and experience the many ways we worship in the sanctuary – we worship God by listening to God’s Word, singing to God, praying to God, and giving to God.
Children are important members of our worshiping community. We promise at baptism “to guide and nurture our children by word and deed, with love and prayer, encouraging our children to know and follow Christ.” Remembering this promise and knowing that children learn best by “doing,” children are always welcome to participate fully and remain in worship with their families in the sanctuary. The presence of children in our sanctuary is a gift and a reminder of how our church is growing and thriving. Children’s bulletins and Bibles are available every Sunday at the table located in the Narthex.
