Little Blessings Nursery (ages 0 – 2)
Little Blessings Nursery provides a safe and stimulating environment for babies and toddlers. Through special themes, songs, and age appropriate activities, trained caregivers provide physical and spiritual nurturing for the “Little Blessings” of our church family during three nursery sessions on Sunday.
Pre-K and Kinder (ages 2-5)
Pre-K and Kinder provides little ones, ages 2-5, the opportunity to play and learn more about God and his love. Hands on activities, stories and songs help our pre-k and kinder children stay engaged and grow confident in a small group setting.
Children’s Large Group (ages 6 – 11)
Children’s Large Group is a time for 1st through 6th graders to learn and grow in their Creator God. Through an interactive time of singing, offering and listening to a short message, Large Group seeks to encourage and grow a sense of wonder about God and His Word.
Sunday School (grades pre-k to 6th grade)
Sunday School is a more formal way for children to learn about the Bible in a small group setting. Our curriculum includes Bible lessons, worksheets and memory verses. This smaller classroom setting provides opportunities for kids to discuss, ask questions, and find applications to what they are learning.
Music and Movement (1st grade to 6th grade)
Children naturally love to sing and move. God made them that way! Our music and movement class provides kids an opportunity to experience the joy of music and movement. Basic music fundamentals are taught and the kids have opportunities to share their talents during special presentations for Mission’s month, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Mother’s Day, and Father’s Day.
After School Program
Kinder – 6th grade
The After School program provides a safe and stimulating environment for children from local schools to receive help and supervision with their homework Monday through Friday. Our library and teachers provide the students with the resources and assistance they need to complete their work. A special Bible program each week encourages kids from our community to learn about God and a relationship with him.
Our After School Program is currently not is session due to our current building renovation.
Summer Day Camp
Kinder – 6th grade
For the past 25 summers, OCM has provided the community with a Bible theme based Summer Day Camp fun filled experience for kids kindergarten through sixth grade. Last summer we had a six week travel adventure theme through the parables of Christ for 150 campers from July 8 – August 16th. In addition to enrichment in math, science and reading, the students enjoyed art, music, gym and a unique lego engineering class. The campers participated in special city sponsored programs in our local community parks and had a super afternoon of learning with NY Wild getting a close up view of a huge snapping turtle, an alligator and “Biggie” an 18 foot python!
Due to our current major building renovation, Summer Day Camp for 2014 will not be held.
Summer Conference VBS
Pre-school – 6th grade
Each Labor Day Weekend our church hosts a family Summer Conference to encourage learning and fellowship throughout our Chinese and English congregations. Iroquois Springs (Rock Hill, NY) was the site of this year’s Summer Conference 2014 and our VBS theme was: Wilderness Escape, Where God Guides & Provides. This is a terrific, hands on experience for kids and volunteers to learn about God’s amazing provision for His people. It was a wonderful time!
