Child Care
Free child care is available for all worship services and by request for other programs at COTS (at least three days in advance). To request child care, contact Pam Bowler

Kids’ Club (3rd-5th grades)
Kids’ Club meets monthly during the school year. Activities include evenings of fun at church, outings such as hayrides and bowling, and service projects such as serving meals to disabled adults or reading to kids at a child care center. At Kids’ Club our children build a community of friends serve Jesus together. Kids are encouraged to invite friends.


Dinner & Conversation
Several times each year we have dinner together in the Great Hall. Kids watch a movie and parents gather for conversation focused on living and growing as Christ followers.
