Education and Christian Formation
Children's Sunday School
Starting as young as birth and continuing to five years old, our Nursery Ministry provides for the care of small children during the Church services and Sunday School. Two safeguarded adults lead activities that are centered on providing care and education for even the youngest among us.
As your children grow, Ascension grows with them. The Children's Education Ministry is guided by a group of volunteers who lead and teach children from age 3 through 5th grade in Christian studies using scripture and other age appropriate materials. Classes meet from 10:00am until 11:00am on 2nd Floor of the Parish Life Building.
Children gather in together in a multi-age group for an interactive Bible story before breaking into smaller age-appropriate groups to dig deeper and apply the story to their daily lives. To see the children are studying now, please see our Sunday School page.
To volunteer to lead a class or if you have questions, please select the Children's Sunday School box on the "I want to learn more" page.
