CHILDREN'S 
MINISTRY

“Feeding His Lambs
to Shine His Light!”


Welcome to Children’s Ministry at Ascension!

 

We serve the children of the church by joyfully sharing God’s love and His Word with them while providing opportunities for their ministry in order to help parents build lifelong disciples!

 

Children at Ascension learn about the one true God, what it means to follow Jesus’ teachings, and are given opportunities to express their faith.  All this is wrapped around building a relationship with their Savior and others.  It’s all about Children’s Christian education, discipleship, and opportunities to put their love for God into action!

 

The Ascension children’s ministry program (birth – 6th grade) partners with parents to be a support and resource, since parents are children’s first and most important faith teachers (Deuteronomy 6:4-9).  Children of God are a part of the community of saints, the church family.  Our heavenly Father values children, so we also value them.  When the love of Jesus becomes the driving force for parents to raise godly children, the Church is there to partner with them (1 John 3:1).

 For Now… 

With the arrival of COVID-19, new adaptations have been implemented for the safety sake of children. Programs and activities are looking a little different for the moment.


Ascension families have been receiving special mailings of My Devotions and Happy Times magazines along with Bible learning resources and Worship Wonders pamphlets.


Kid’s Talk, on this website, offer a weekly children’s message to all those interested.  Children and their parents can view together as a family and continue discussions at home.  Kids Talk is wrapped around Scripture for continual faith nurture and growth.  Pray, praise, and give thanks!


Keep an eye on this page for future events and information to come.  May God keep all our families safe and in His Word to know His love.
