Children & Teens

Children’s Church & Nursery

UOC is family-centered and kid-friendly. As such, we seek to ensure that our children from the cradle to adult-hood are exposed to the basics of the Word of God.

The Children’s Church meets weekly on Sunday Mornings @ 10:00 during the main worship service. It is a fun-filled, engaging time of sharing with our children.

Their worship and activities take place in the Administrative & Educational Annex Building.

Teen Church

The Teen Church meets each Sunday. It is led by adults who are committed to creating a weekly space where teens can worship in a way that ministers directly to them and share in fun activities with other teens.
