Children's Ministry

The Children's Ministry at Oak Street Baptist Church views children to be a precious gift from God.  We teach children through age appropriate curriculum with Bible study and activities.  We work diligently to encourage each child to have a relationship with Jesus Christ and assist parents to disciple in their home.  

The weekly schedule consists of:

Sunday School at 9:30 AM
Morning Worship at 10:30 AM
A nursery is provided for babies during Sunday School and Morning Worship.  Pre-K children through 1st grade can participate in Children's Church during the Morning Worship Service.  They will be dismissed to Children's Church at the end of the Pastor's Pals segment of the service.  

Wednesday Evening Activities are available and will begin at 6:30 PM for all children in their particular age category.  

Golden Oaks

The Golden Oaks group at Oak Street Baptist meets on a regular basis, typically on the third Thursday of each month at noon.  The meeting usually consists of a potluck lunch, with a special program.  

Outings and activities with the group are planned on a routine basis and have included the following:  trip to Pigeon Forge for dinner and a show; trip to Bush's Cannery at Chestnut Hill, and a picnic at Cades Cove.  

The group also participates in several on-going outreach projects such as delivering fruit baskets to shut-ins during the Christmas holidays.  

Vacation Bible School

Oak Street Baptist hosts their largest outreach effort of the year in July with Vacation Bible School.  Approximately 45 faithful and dedicated individuals work tirelessly to reach children and youth for Jesus during this week-long, evening event.  Workers begin planning for the next VBS as soon as this years' VBS ends.  Several workers participate in training opportunities at Lifeway's Ridgecrest Conference Center in North Carolina in January, as well as training on a regional and association level.    

Each night consists of a Worship Rally, Bible Study, Missions, Music, Crafts, and Recreation, all specifically designed for each particular age group.  Since most of our workers come directly from work, Snack workers go above and beyond to provide children and adult workers with a more substantial (snack) instead of just chips and a drink.  

Online registration for this event will begin May 1st.  Please see the Vacation Bible School page for more information.
