Anyone who has worked with children understands that very little is accomplished instantly! The same is true with Gospel ministry and children. Ascend Kids is a farming ministry – not in the agricultural sense but rather in the spiritual sense.
Each week Ascend Kids volunteers invest in gospel farming work – planting and watering seeds of the Gospel. Our biblically-sound curriculum is intentionally chosen to highlight gospel truths and attributes of God that will prayerfully provide right thinking which will lead to right living.
Our Ascend Kids ministry is offered to children from birth through grade 5. When you arrive for your first visit, head right to the Ascend Kids Welcome Center. Classes are offered during both the 9:00 AM and 10:45 AM services.
During our worship services, we provide specific classrooms in which each child is secure physically and is loved and cared for by approved and responsible adults and youth support staff. At Ascend Kids, each child is valued and taught the Word of God in age-appropriate ways to help our children learn and enjoy their time on Sundays.
Infant Nursery (0-walking) - a warm and comfortable ministry room where infants are lovingly cared for.
Toddler Nursery (1-2 years) - songs, activities and personal attention are important to these loved ones busy building their language skills. These active pre-schoolers are eager to learn about relationships with others and their importance to God.
Early Childhood (3-5 years) - pre-k/kindergarten children enjoy worship time and learn about God through age-appropriate teaching, crafts, and games.
Elementary (grades 1-5) - these school age children enjoy a time of worship and teaching in our Gathering. After the Gathering, they are separated into age-appropriate small groups, where they discuss the lesson with a passionate leader.
Our Ascend Kids leadership team is tasked with providing continual training to their servant teams. We value servants who love Jesus and desire to show the love of Jesus to your children. But we also want our servants to continue to grow in utilizing the best practices in both child teaching and safety.
The safety of our Ascend Kids is our number one priority. As a result we have created security procedures to provide a safe environment at Ascend.
All Ascend Kids servant leaders undergo a detailed application process that includes a thorough background check. In addition, we have a security system in place to protect and care for your children as well as a means to notify you during the service if you are needed in your child's class. We also have a first-aid team on notice, an abuse policy in place, and overall care and control of all areas where children are present. We seek to honor and care for your family so they can enjoy their time and you can relax and concentrate in a distraction free service.
We look forward to meeting you and your children as we seek to see them come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ and grow in the blessings of their salvation.
