fcobkids Special Events

In addition to our weekly programming, our fcobkids Ministry has several larger events throughout the year for our children and their families to take part in.  Below is a list of these offerings that will be available.  Please go to our calendar closer to the time of each event to get more detailed information.  If you are interested in helping with any of these events, please contact Kristin Holter.

Vacation Bible School

VBS takes place every summer and is a great outreach to our FCOB families as well as the community. We welcome all children from ages 4 through grade 5 to join in the adventure.  Older children are encouraged to be mentors and guides.

Harvest Hoedown

Bring your whole family to our fall celebration, Harvest Hoedown, on Saturday, October 28 from 4:00-7:00pm. We will have carnival games for all ages, competition relays, tons of candy, and a yummy dinner. We encourage you to wear costumes! Here’s the schedule for the evening: carnival games 4:00-4:30, competition relays 4:30-5:15, dinner 5:30-6:15, and award ceremony 6:30-7:00.

Search for the Christ Child

Join us on December 8 & 9 for an Interactive Live Nativity called Search for the Christ Child. Over 100 volunteers transform the entire church building into first century Bethlehem. Visitors are led through the story of the first Christmas and brought to the feet of a live baby representing the Christ child.

Family Easter Celebration

Join us for games, crafts, Face Paint by Vicki, and resurrection eggs. Bring a picnic lunch and enjoy cookies on us.

fcobfamilies Events

The family ministry team is also always working to create spaces that allow you to foster family connections or equip you in your role as a parent.  Check out the newest events for all families at FCOB!
