Children’s Ministries

What is a Neighborhood Backyard VBS?
It is a VBS that in held in an informal setting, your backyard! In your backyard you can share the good news of Jesus with the boys and girls in your neighborhood.

When will it be?
During the months of July and August you pick the four days that work best for you and your family. Usually VBS will fall on consecutive days, and either in the morning, afternoon or evening. It is up to you and your schedule.

What is the curriculum?
We will provide the bible lessons, crafts, game ideas, songs, bible stories and a snack. The curriculum will be kid friendly, and run about 1 1/2 hours long.
Theme: God Made You, God is with you, Jesus loves you and God made you for a reason

Who will lead the Backyard VBS?
That is where you come in the picture. WE NEED YOU! Families that are willing to open their homes to reach your neighborhood for Jesus. We know that this can be overwhelming, but we provide all the materials and if you need we can even find a high school helper.

Thanks! Can’t wait to hear from you!

Hi CCO kids and families,
We miss seeing your smiling faces here at church. Since we can’t meet in person till August look for an online Sunday School format that you can enjoy as a family. We have been providing videos and questions.

You can find the information @

We love you all and know that God is with us even when we don’t see him.   Remember :  Joshua 1:9 “This is my command (said God)-Be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”

Sunday School

KidZone Kidz is what we call the Children’s Ministry at Christ Church Otsego.  In the KidZone, kids learn what it means to live their lives for Jesus.  Our lesson plans are written directly from the Bible.  Kids learn by reading the Bible and discussing questions with their teachers.  We also learn through acting, doing crafts, conducting science experiments, and much more!  We end the hour with uplifting worship music.  Our goal is for children to graduate from Sunday school with these elements of a firm foundation in Christ:

  • They know Jesus
  • They know the difference between the Old Testament and New Testament and can navigate through the Bible
  • They know how to pray
  • They own a Bible (2nd graders receive new Bibles)
  • They have memorized Bible verses and Faith Steps
  • They have experienced First Communion (4th – 6th Graders)

Sunday School classes are available during our worship services at 9:00 & 10:45 AM from September through May for kids 3 years old through 6th grade.  Contact Cyndy Nelson at (763) 441-5097 or for more information.


Our nursery is a safe and loving environment for infants and toddlers.  It is available during Sunday morning worship services and for some Christian education opportunities.  If you love caring for infants and toddlers and want to join our team, please contact

We'd love to meet you!

Whatever your faith background, we invite you to come and join us as we experience God’s love and grow in our faith together.
