Be Part of the Story
At OBC we have programs for every age. Check out all the stuff we’re up to below and if you have any questions we would love to help!
What We Are Up To
A large well designed Nursery matched with top-notch trained nursery volunteers are at hand during Sunday School and the morning service. Be assured that they will treat your children as the treasures they are. Coordinator: Dyanne Blacquier
Children are an important part of our church family and we dedicate a lot of our energy and resources to make sure they are encouraged. During our morning service, this growing children’s ministry is designed to meet the needs of these little people with stories, crafts, activities & snacks to help kids worship like kids. Coordinator: Andrea Hanley.
Wednesdays 9:30am – 11:30am
Glow Kids (Ages K - Grade 5)
Our midweek program for ages K – Grade 5, where we make use of our gymnasium for games along with snacks, stories and crafts. They will be busy and they’ll love it. This growing ministry always has room for one more kid. Coordinators: Nancy Murphy and Debbie Carpenter
Middle School and High School – Fridays at 6:00pm – 8:15pm
Bring your preteens and teens out on Friday nights for snacks, games, devotionals and fun activities. Questions? Contact Pastor Perry

Prayer is vitally important to the work at OBC, in fact it is the work of our church and it is central in our mission “To build a growing family of mature, praying and committed disciples of Jesus Christ.” The following are areas designed to keep our church bathed in prayer.
Prayer Quilt A quilt that holds prayer cards from the pews for issues that burden you… it will be prayed for at all prayer activities
Prayer Teams Special requests for specific prayer items where you need to know prayer warriors are partnering with you in prayer
Prayer Line An emergency prayer service by phone and email for those who are facing a crisis and need prayer now!
Deacon Prayer Early Friday mornings, our deacons consistently meet and keep the needs of the church in prayer and are happy to pray for your need.
Prayer Meeting – Wednesdays at 7:00pm
The lifeline of the Christian faith is prayer… honest, open communication with the God who calls to us to come to Him when we are weary and heavy laden. A vibrant prayer life is something many desire, but few experience for a variety of reasons. If you would like to change that, join us on Wednesdays at 7pm. Bring a bible, a note pad and a heart yearning to touch God’s throne. Contact Person – Pastor Perry
We believe it is not a coincidence that you are here because God wants you to get rooted while you are here whether it be for three months or three decades. Rooted in a community of believers and rooted in your faith. And although we have a great time worshipping together on Sundays, growth happens in the groups.
Oromocto Baptist is dedicated to helping people grow and one of the ways we do that is through a commitment to small groups. Every year we seek to do two major launches of groups, in February (church wide) and again in October (special interests) These groups have spawned other groups that meet at various times of the year, at different locations and even different times of the days –mornings, afternoons, and evenings.
It is not unheard of to have up to a dozen groups running on a weekly basis when we are at full throttle. And the reason why? Because people have a chance to work through what they believe in a safe environment and they develop friendships that can last an eternity.
Feel free to connect with the office if you have any questions. Small Group Coordinator – Pastor Perry
Harvest for the Hungry
Every October 31st, we gather thousands of dollars of groceries and foodbank items from Oromocto West, Smith subdivision and Windgate Estates which helps the Oromocto foodbank going through the busy Christmas season. We also encourage our attendees to remember the foodbank on the first Sunday of the month and bring items to the church’s collection box which we give to the foodbank the following week. A great way to help those who need it. If you’d like to know more about this, contact the church office.
LAFF (Life After Fifty-Five)
Second Tuesday of the Month at Noon
Join us for LAFF (Life After Fifty-Five) – This appropriately named group continues to grow as a place where people of a certain era can share, laugh and enjoy life in a fresh way. We typically meet September to May and share a potluck lunch together. Once in a while we do a day trip either to check out a tourist site or enjoy our annual fall leaves trip. Join us in the church gym on the second Tuesday of the month, bring something to share at the potluck and bring a friend… and be ready to LAFF. Coordinator : Pastor Perry.
