Online Resources for Children's Ministries

Join us in making get well soon and sympathy cards for our Asbury family and community members who are struggling with illness or loss.  Adults, teens, and children are welcome to participate.  Extra cards will be sent to patients in isolation at local hospitals.

Caring with Cards Ministry

We offer a variety of programs so families may know the stories of faith, grow in their relationship with God, and have a fun and safe experience with a loving church family. 

Regular Programming

Nursery Care During Worship

The nursery will be available for infants - 5 year-olds during the 9:45 and 11:00 worship services. Please register so that we know how many children to expect. You will need a ticket for each child that will be in the nursery. All nursery staff will be using the same cleaning and care procedures that are being used during Asbury's Day School. We will not have childcare for children over the age of 5.

Please contact Sarah Deroche if you have any questions at  .

Sunday School

For all children, aged 0 - 6th grade, we offer Sunday School classes during the 9:45 a.m. worship service. For detailed information about our curriculum and age-specific information, go to our Sunday School page.

Kids' choir

Kids' Choir is a program that focuses on the development of children's voices while inspiring a life-long love of music and worship. Kids' Choir takes place every Sunday during the school year at 3:00 p.m. in the Children's Building.  See our Kids' Choir page for more information.

Students with amazing grace

On Wednesdays at 5:45 p.m. during the school year, we offer a fellowship night called SWAG with food, games, and a short lesson for 5th & 6th graders. For more information, see our events. To sign up to volunteer or provide a meal, click or tap here.  

well-versed kids

Well-Versed Kids is a Bible verse memory program for children ages 1st-5th grade. Each week, we review the month's verse and kids have the opportunity to recite their verse during small groups at Sunday School. Kids can earn prizes for every verse they memorize. Your child won’t always have a Bible wherever they go, but with the verses learned in Well-Versed Kids, they will always have the important truths necessary for facing real-life trials and challenges.

Acolytes

Children in 3rd– 6thgrade are invited to serve their church and God by joining the Auld Acolyte Guild and becoming an acolyte for the 11:00 a.m. worship services. 

We have training twice a year, once in the fall and once in the spring. Acolytes begin serving in worship on September 22, 2019. Online worship signup for current, trained acolytes can be found by clicking here

The purpose of worship is to provide an atmosphere in which people can meet God. As an acolyte, you are part of the worship service. You bring the Light of Christ into worship and take the Light of Christ before the people into the world. Several times throughout the year we will have parties and outreach projects.  We will serve together and also play together.  If you interested in becoming an acolyte and need more information, please contact  Sarah Deroche at

Special Programming

At Asbury, we strive to create an environment where children are always welcome. We have special events for Children's Ministry that are "just for kids" and we also have events that are for our entire church family. We encourage multigenerational relationships and connections with our events. 

trunk or treat

Every year, we open our campus and have a fun event for the whole family! Members of the Asbury community decorate their car trunks, have games, candy, and fun for your little costumed goblins to participate in a safe, enjoyable trick or treat experience. 

Rain or Shine, Dress in your best costume and join us for a night of fun in the Asbury Parking lot! Join us for trunk or treating, games, free popcorn & cotton candy, a photo area and more. You'll also get to vote on your favorite trunk. Please note, no meals will be available but bring your money for Kona Ice!
 
Asbury Game Night

A few times a year, we have a church-wide game night in Spiritwind Worship Center. You can bring a favorite board game, or just show up and join in the fun! Check our events listing so see if we have one coming up soon. 

Family Flick Night

A few times a year, Children's Ministries hosts a family-friendly movie with popcorn for the entire family!

Pancakes & Pajamas

During the Advent season in Spiritwind Worship Center, we host a special worship service entitled "Pancakes & Pajamas" that recounts the birth of Jesus while we enjoy a pancake breakfast in our pajamas. This is a worship experience for all ages to enjoy together.
