Here are some resources made just for our Preschool children and their families! Click on the arrow to the right to join us.
Hello Oakwood Preschool parents!
This week in our lesson we are going to talk about Matthew 18:19-20 and how our children can be a disciple this week!
Our May verse for May is:
Nothing at all can ever separate us from God’s love.” Romans 8:39
You can find our May worship songs here:
I’m hoping some of the older kids may remember these from VBS last year!
Activities you can do together home:
1. Practice our memory verse for May and use the sign language!
2. I’ve attached a fun activity page for you to do this week.
If you don’t have a printer, you can write it down on paper and do it together each day! Color your page and make it your own creative style!
I’m continuing to pray that you feel God’s love and presence in your homes this week and always. Please feel welcome to contact me anytime if I can help you with anything or pray with you about something specific.

Sunday Mornings - Kinder-5th Grade
Welcome to Outlet Online! The Outlet Online Experience will offer your Kinder-5th grade child an engaging lesson that can be enjoyed right in your living room! We hope you will join Pastor Patrick, Pastor Jody, and Mrs. Brenda as we worship, play games, and learn more about God's Word together.
“Who is Jesus?” It’s so important that our kids know the answer to that question beyond a surface level. For that reason, we’ll be answering that question over the next 4 weeks during our family lessons. In the Book of John, Jesus uses 7 different “I am” statements that give us a look at who He really is. This week, we’ll be looking at one of those statements—“I am the true vine.”
Here is a snapshot of the lesson details for this week:
Bible Story: Jesus is the True Vine (John 15:1-17)
Big Idea: Jesus is the vine, so we can grow by staying connected to Him.
Memory Verse: “I am the vine. You are the branches. If you remain joined to me, and I to you, you will bear a lot of fruit.” John 15:5 (NIrV)
After the video lesson and music, you can use the attached materials to help take your family deeper into the lesson:
- Family activities guide
- Coloring page for kids
- GO! Home guide for kids
- Bible verse sign
- Fruit of the Spirit Activity
I’m praying for you and your family! And I’m hopeful that this lesson helps your family (in the words of 2 Peter 3:18) “Grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.”
Have your kids lead the family in worship while parents learn the songs we sing in the Outlet every Sunday and Wednesday by Seeds Family Worship! Watch their videos on YouTube or stream their music from Spotify by clicking on the links below.
