Children

Your child’s faith journey is important to us and we want to be here to guide them along the way.

We offer a wide variety of activities for you and your child (ages 0 to fifth grade) to grow together in faith each week and throughout the year. To stay up-to-date on our Children's Ministry activities and involvement opportunities, you can click the button below to sign up for email updates!

Sunday Mornings

Worship

Sundays, September–May, 11 am, Sanctuary

We believe children are a sacred gift, and they are welcome in our worship. Children will be invited forward during worship for a Children’s Time. Following this, children ages 4 through 5th grade are invited to go with our children’s educators for further enrichment or return to their caretaker for the remainder of the service. If there is a way our children’s ministry can be more welcoming to you and your child, please contact Paula Dugan at pdugan@asburyfirst.org.
