Kids Ministry at Oxford Baptist Church

At Oxford Baptist Church, our kids (infant through grade 5) experience safe, age-appropriate environments where they learn about Jesus in a creative and relevant way. We believe that the gospel is for all ages and we want to work alongside you in raising your children so they can have a relationship with Jesus Christ. 

Your first visit

Here's what to expect when visiting Oxford Baptist Kids for the first time:

First, find the area marked for first-time families. There we will meet your family, check your child into our system, and then one of our volunteers will lead your child to their age-appropriate room.

Upon checking in for the first time, we will ask for the following personal information (NOTE: We value your privacy and will not share this information with anyone):

  • Parent/guardian name(s)
  • Child's name
  • Child's birthdate
  • Home address
  • Phone number
  • Any special instructions (allergies, special needs) for your children

How check-in works

Before Service: You can check-in your child at any available kiosk. After finding your child’s name in the database, you and your child will be given matching name tags that are exclusive to your family and your visit. Your child will need to wear the name tag portion while you hold on to the matching tag.

After Service: After the service is complete, you will return to your child’s room and show your tag in order for your child to be released back to you.

During Service: In the event that we need to contact you during the service, your child’s identification code will appear on the screen. We ask that you exit the auditorium immediately and look for a staff member or volunteer who will direct you to your child’s room.

Parents with infants

At Oxford Baptist Church we do have a nursery where your little one will be well taken care of. If you decide to keep them with you during the service, we have a place where you can feed and change your child as needed.
