Kids & Youth

One of our top priorities at Oakland Church is equipping the next generation to reach the world for Jesus! Our programs are prayerfully structured and intentionally developed so that not only does each kid, tween, and teen find authentic community and have a lot of fun, but they become deeply marked by the presence of God.

Oakland Kids knows that in order for kiddos & tweens to grow in authentic, transformative faith, they need a place to belong and someone to believe in them. We are all about investing into the child and building up the family to produce kids who are passionate about Jesus and compassionate toward others.

Emerge Youth Ministry is for teenagers in 7th – 12th grade, and gathers every Wednesday that school is in session, at 6:30pm. Each week may look a little different, but every time we’re together, you can bet there will be plenty of laughs & games, a relevant talk from the Bible, and probably even live music!
