Xplode Kids is the Children’s Ministry at Oakhurst for kids Preschool-5th grade. We believe that the children represent the future of our church and we are committed to giving them a safe environment and fun opportunities to learn about God’s Word and to put it to use in their everyday lives.
For our preschoolers we use First Look curriculum. Everything we teach our preschoolers is based on one of three simple, but powerful, truths. The entire curriculum is constructed to meet your preschoolers where they are cognitively, spiritually, physically, emotionally and socially. Through age appropriate activities, preschoolers are building their spiritual foundation so that by the time they graduate to Kindergarten they know these three basic truths: 1) God Made Me 2) God Loves Me 3) Jesus Wants To Be My Friend Forever.
For our elementary students we use the 252 Basics curriculum which is built around three basic truths every child should embrace according to what Jesus modeled in Luke 2:52: 1) I need to make the wise choice 2) I can trust God no matter what 3) I should treat others the way I want to be treated. The curriculum is based on a Core Virtue and Memory Verse as the framework for each month. Students learn essential foundational skills about God and how the connection with Jesus and the Holy Spirit is life-changing. “And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature and in favor with God and man.” Luke 2:52
