Welcome to Ascension’s Children’s Ministry!
Ascension is the kind of church where kids are welcome just as they are! Giggles and wiggles and all!
Here at Ascension we encourage the presence of children in Worship. From infancy to adolescence it takes practice for kids to adjust to the rhythm and formality of regular worship life. From learning prayer hands, sitting still, when to stand, and how to use an inside voice. They practice at home and in restaurants and a variety of other places. Why not church? Some churches may give you the “shhhh” or the “stare.” But, here at Ascension we recognize children of all ages as a gift- created and welcomed by God.
During our Sunday morning worship children of all ages are invited forward following the Gospel for a children’s sermon. This is a fun occasion for the children to interact with the pastor, learn about what it means to be a young disciple and pray together with the church.
If children or parents need a place to stretch, play and make a little noise we offer a nursery in the back of our worship space. There is a large window which allows families to remain connected to our worship.
Beginning Sunday, November 4th 2018 and continuing on the first Sunday of the month we are transitioning to a once a month Sunday School program. We understand that life on the weekends is becoming more and more busy. With sports, rest and responsibilities its difficult to commit to a weekly educational program for children. We have noticed through the years the Sunday school attendance dropping little by little. So, we are trying something new. Our hope and our plan is to return to weekly Sunday School for all ages.
First Sunday of the month at 9AM
Confirmation 6th-8th Grade
Youth Group Activities for 6th-Highschool young adults is offered throughout the year
A Safe Place to Play
Our Church campus offers a play ground, volley ball court, pavilion and plenty of space to run around and be a kid. Children and families are welcome to use our outdoor space any time!
