Children were important to our Lord and we believe that they should be important to us too!

The children’s ministries of ODBC are directed by Corey and Kate Muth.  Corey was raised at Open Door and attended the same Sunday School classes that he now oversees.  They have a deep love for the Lord and a desire to educate children in the truths of God’s word.

What Are Sunday School Classes Like?

Open Door is brimming with kids and we love it that way!

Our teachers enjoy ministering to children and are sincere in their desire to see each child raised in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.  Many of our teachers were raised in ODBC.  Each class has a primary teacher with an assistant.

 

Sunday School classes are held each week from 9:30-10:15.  They meet in the lower level of the church and are for the following age groups:

 

0-2 

Held in the nursery, this class is designed to introduce your child to Sunday School.  They learn to sing simple songs, color a Bible picture, and enjoy a snack (please inform the teacher if your child has any allergies).

Ms. Lindy (as the kids call her), is a mother of 3 children herself and does a phenomenal job introducing these little ones to the wonderful world of Sunday School!

 

3-5

At this age the kids begin to learn the stories and characters of the Bible.  The children learn more songs, are taught to pray, color work sheets, and memorize short Bible verses.

 

6-8

This class focuses on the practical application of the Bible stories.  The children memorize scripture, and receive take home papers.  These are helpful for parents to see what their children have been learning.

 

9-12

These pre-teens learn the Bible in a way that is directly applicable to their lives.  They continue to memorize portions of scripture and sometimes prepare special music for the congregation.

 

13-16

Taught by Mr. Muth, these young people are Biblically instructed in matters that pertain to their unique time of life.

What is Junior Church Like?

Held each week during the regular worship service (10:30), the children sing songs, take prayer requests, and enjoy an illustrated Bible lesson.  These classes are taught by a few husband and wife teams.
