Discipleship Oasis

 

What is it?

Discipleship Oasis is the childrens ministries of Shepherd of the Hills Church, it includes everything kid.  Sunday school, childrens church, our care room and the infant's crib room are all included.  In addition our summer Vacation Bible School, our Wednesday night Youth Club, and other children events are all part of Discipleship Oasis.

 

Ages:

Our childrens church program is divided by age and group color (see below):

  • "Meercats" - (green) infants 
  • "Road Runners" - (red) walkers to 4 years old
  • "Coyotes" - (yellow) pre-k to 4th Grade
  • Wednesday Night Youth Club - (blue) Kindergarten - 5th grade

 

 

Sign-In

As of 2016, Shepherd of the Hills implemented a sign-in procedure for Discipleship Oasis events.  Whether it is Sunday morning or Wednesday night, we ask that parents stop by our Discipleship Oasis kiosk in the foyer and sign in their child.

At sign-in, the child will receive a color-coded name tag sticker and the parent will receive a matching color pick-up ticket.  The ticket is presented, at pick-up, to the leader of the room your child is in.  This ensures the right child goes with the right adult and all are accounted for.   Thank you ahead of time for your help in keeping our children safe :) 

 

When Do the Ministries Meet?

Sunday School is offered on Sunday mornings at 9:15 in the Road Runners' Room

Children's Church / Care Room

During our 10:30 service, we offer a childrens church program.  During the service the children are invited up on to the stage for our Good News Mystery Box.  Each week, one child is selected at random to take home a black box and put a secret item inside.  Using that item, one of the pastors will present a gospel message during the service.  Afterwards, the children are led by one of our Discipleship Oasis teachers to their appropriate room.  Parents are more than welcome to accompany their child to their classroom and get to know their teachers.  We have some incredible volunteers who have all been background checked and are committed to the ministry of children.

 

 

Coyotes (ages pre-k to 4th grade) are led to a classroom full of opportunities to learn about Jesus. They are given age-appropriate instruction and usually make a craft and/or have a snack.  

 

 

 

 

Road Runners (ages walker to pre-k) are led to a classroom full of room to run and play.  There, they find toys, games, books and other age-appropriate material designed to provide as much instruction as children of that age can handle.  They are allowed to run, play and burn off much of the excess energy kids of that age are blessed with.

 

 

Meercats (infants) are taken to our crib room filled with cribs and infant toys.

 

Wednesday Night Youth Club

During the school year, Discipleship Oasis offers a Wednesday Night Youth Club to children, ages kindergarten - 5th grade.  During the evening, the kids will worship in our main sanctuary.  After worship they move to a Bible lesson, then a craft and finally games & snacks.  

Once per month, the Youth Club also performs a song for the church during our 10:30 worship service.

Youth club meets from 6:15-8:30 on Wednesday evenings.  Drop-off and sign-in is at the main sanctuary while pick-up is located on the lower level.
