Children's Ministry

Children are an important part of our family at Oak Ridge Presbyterian Church

. It is our hope to help children grow in Christ and feel the love of Jesus Christ in all of our worship and educational opportunities.



Nursery and Toddler childcare is offered during our 10:00 a.m. worship service through 2nd Hour Classes. With the help of paid nursery staff and volunteers, the infants and toddlers at ORPC have a safe and loving environment while parents enjoy worship and Sunday school.


Second Hour for Kids begins at 11:15 a.m. with age-appropriate, hands-on activities designed to grow disciples and nurture friendships. Classes end at 12:00 p.m.  Sunday school takes a break in the summer from Memorial Day until just after Labor Day.


Children’s worship is offered for children ages 4 through 2nd grade. Children begin in the worship service with their families and are then invited to go to Children’s worship where they explore their faith through Bible stories, prayer, and experience. Based on Montessori principles, Children’s worship invites children to grow in Christian faith through story, play, and wonder.


Children’s Choirs meet in the fall and spring and sing in worship for Advent, Holy Week and other times. Children also participate in a Christmas program during Advent.
