It's my first time at Ojai Presbyterian Church! What do I do when I arrive?
Please stop by the: OPC Sunday School check in table
front of church and they will assist you with the Sunday School child check
process. Every week we would liked all
children to be signed in to Sunday School in the front of church,and signed out
after Sunday School at the classroom on the clipboard. Look for our bright blue
t-shirts worn by the Children's Ministries team around church! They can assist
you at any time! Sunday School is only offered at 9:15am. If you are a first
time visitor or this is your first time attending Sunday School this school
year, we ask that you fill out a new child registration card at the Sunday
School check in table at 9am.
Where are classes located?
Our nursery thru 8th grade Sunday School
classrooms are all located in our Sunday School Courtyard down the
kitchen hallway (please follow the signs). There are a couple secure gates that
keep your child safely in Sunday School. Please remember to close gates behind
you, so that all children remain safely in the secure gates while they wait for
their parents to check them out.
Is there a security system in place?
Yes, there are a number of systems and
policies in place to ensure safety for all children. Signing your child in and
out every Sunday is one way we try to keep kids accounted for. Our Sunday
School teachers and classrooms never leave the church grounds. And most
importantly please remember to close the secure gates behind you when you enter
the Sunday School Courtyard Area.
Is it safe to leave my child with your volunteers?
All of our Children's Ministry volunteers
have had a background check and complete training. We strive to have the safest
possible environment in all classrooms.
What if my child needs me during the church service?
If for any reason your child needs you
during the service if you provide us with your cell phone number at the sign in
clipboard Sunday morning, we can text
you. Please talk directly to your child’s teacher when you drop them off
What if my child is sick or was sick recently?
Parents will be requested to refrain from
bringing their child to Sunday School if their child has a temperature or has
had a temperature within the last 24hours, has a rash, or diarrhea. Please be
mindful of other children that will be at Sunday School that day.
What if my child is upset at drop off?
If a child was upset when being dropped off
we encourage the parents to say goodbye to their child, and go to church. We let the parents know that if
the child is crying or upset for other 10 to 15 minutes we will text you if you
left a phone number you left on the sign in sheet.
Will my child's photo be taken?
order to keep current, or Children's Ministry is now using many avenues of
social media. This enables us to post pictures of all the great things that
happen Sunday morning at Ojai Presbyterian Church and at special events. Please
be advised that your child's picture may be used on a social media site.
Children will not be tagged or identified on these sites. If you do not want
your child's picture posted to any social media site please contact Brittany Dutter.
