Weekly Programs

Children in Worship

Worship Binders for children to use are available in the back of the services or from an usher.
Please take the time to show your child the songs in the hymnal or point them out on the screen. Explain to your child what is happening throughout the service — how we posture ourselves when we pray, why we are quiet at certain times and why we make noise and greet our neighbors at other times. Worship, like a sport or a new skill, takes practice for our young ones and the more they do it, they better at it they will be!

Worship bulletins that accompany our 3-year-old – Second Grade Sunday School curriculum from Sparkhouse is located in the binder.

Worship Readiness

Children of all ages are always welcome in worship at OU, and we believe that children are best formed in the worshipping community. But we also know that not all children are prepared for worship at the same age. We now offer Worship Readiness for Children during the 10:55 worship service. This time is designed for children Pre-K-2nd grade whose parents would like an alternative to staying through the entire worship service.

Worship Readiness will include child-friendly discussion and teaching to help children learn the elements of OU’s worship and spiritual practices, including the Doxology, the Apostles’ Creed, and the Lord’s Prayer.

We invite children to begin worship with their parents in order to experience prayer, hymns and scripture as a family. During the Hymn of Preparation, children will exit to the back of the Sanctuary where our Worship Readiness leaders and volunteers will guide the children to the Youth Center. Children will be picked up in the Youth Center following the end of worship.
