Early Childhood: Ohana Island

Chad Pippin

Ohana Island is a destination for children ages 3 years old through kindergarten. Our curriculum is designed to teach children 3 basic truths: God made me, God loves me, and Jesus wants to be my friend forever. Our lessons include engaging games and activities, as well as an interactive Bible story, worship and small group time.

Times & Location

Ohana Island classes are available during each of our Sunday gatherings and is located in the main church building.

Small Talk

Small Talk is designed for parents to use at strategic times with their 3 year old – Kindergartener. During Drive Time, Play Time, Bath Time and Cuddly Time, you will have opportunities to reinforce the “Bottom Line” of the month’s curriculum.  I want to encourage you to print the Small Talk pages and put them on your refrigerator. This is a wonderful way for us to partner with you in the spiritual development of your child.

Safety & Security

All volunteers in BVG Kids’ Ministry are required to fill out an application and go through a background screening prior to serving. All children are given a nametag with their name, parent’s names, any important health information, and a security number. This tag matches the label given to the parent at check-in. If any issues arise with a child, the parent will be paged by posting the security number in the gathering. The parent label is required for pick up.


BVG Kids’ Ministry could not exist without the leadership and expertise of significant adults who volunteer to guide and mentor children.  BVG Kids’ Ministry has opportunities for people with all different gifts.

Our greatest need is for adults to invest in a small group of kids during one of our 3 gatherings. Our weekend ministry is relationally fueled, so we ask our adult leaders to commit to come each week and shepherd the same small group of kids.

We also need registration/check-in helpers, large group teachers and worship leaders. There is literally a place for everyone to serve in BVG Kids’ Ministry in one capacity or another. Join us, and make an eternal impact in the lives of kids in our church.
