Sunday Morning Family Activity Guides

Join us every Sunday at 9:30 for our online kids service! After watching the video, you can do the K-5 activity before main worship service begins at 10:00 am or later in the day. If you have preschool or preteen age kids who are missing Ollie or the So and So Show? You can find an age specific video and activity for them as well.

Take a few minutes after watching Kylie’s middle school lesson to discuss these questions with your Students.
  • On a scale of 1-10 (1 being easy and 10 being almost impossible), how difficult is it for you to decide…
    • Where you want to eat?
    • What you want to wear to school?
    • What you want to watch?
    • Who you want to hang out with?
  • What’s the hardest part about making decisions?
  • Have you ever felt unsure about a decision you had to make? Tell us about it.
  • Why is it sometimes difficult to choose to do the right thing?
  • Is it harder to make the right choice when you don’t know how it will work out? Why or why not?
  • How do you know what the next right thing to do is?

Service Projects

Senior citizens in assisted living and other care facilities are facing a time of loneliness and anxiety due to COVID-19. Most facilities have stopped access to visitors, including family, leaving them more isolated than ever.

Our Care Pastor, Lisa Herrington, has requested that we send coloring pages or cards to encourage their residents and remind them they the are NOT alone. 

Click on the link below to download a file with coloring pages that you and your kids can decorate. Or, create your own card using whatever supplies you have!

Then simply mail them or physically deliver them to the drop box outside our church offices. We’ll make sure they get to the right locations. Our address is: 

Blue Oaks Church
7139 Koll Center Parkway #200
Pleasanton, CA 94566
