Children's Ministries

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. During the 9:45 a.m. worship service, children in nursery care will be included in pre-school Sunday School. 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

In person Children's Sunday School begins November 1! 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

Students with amazing grace

On Wednesdays, we offer a fellowship night called SWAG with games and a short lesson for 5th & 6th graders. SWAG is returning on Wednesday, November 4th from 5:45 p.m.- 6:45 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall. Due to COVID19 and the need for CDC Guideline compliance, we have made some changes to our gatherings that will stay in place until those guidelines change. No registration is required. Masks are required and no food will be served, but we will have a blast together in fellowship!

*NOTE: All "in-person" gatherings will be following the CDC guidelines for places of worship including limited crowd numbers, social distancing, and wearing masks.

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.


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. 

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

Kids' choir

Our Kids's Choir is not currently meeting due to COVID-19. 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.

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.
