The Sunday school here at ODPC is full of children discovering what being a Christian is all about and experiencing the “truths” of the Bible! Sunday School is open to children from nursery to 5th grade. If you have a heart for children and want to make a difference in their lives, what better way is there than to tell them about Jesus and how He loves them.

What is the procedure for signing in my child?

Bring your child to the Children’s Check-In Desk in the Welcome Center. A friendly person will be there before both the 9:30am and 11:00am services to help you properly sign-in your child. Please fill out all paperwork and present any allergies or concerns that you have about your child so that we can provide the best care for him or her. A security tag will be given to you for pick-up of your child. You will be given a beeper from the nursery staff along with the security tag if your child is three years old or younger.

Where does my child go after check-in?

Infants – 3 year olds have a space created just for them. The same loving and consistent adult will be there on Sundays to build a trusting relationship with you and your child. You are welcome to stay in the nursery with your infant if you like. The pastors sermon will be broadcast live in this room so you will have the luxury of receiving God’s message and being with your little one at the same time.

* Please bring any necessary items such as: diapers, pull-ups, wipes, snacks, bottles, sippy cups, or change of clothes labeled and in a bag for your child.
