Sunday School

Our Sunday School classes incorporate Bible stories, activities, crafts, videos, and games into a full faith experience for children! Led by dedicated, creative volunteers from our congregation who are Safe Sanctuary certified, classes meet upstairs in the Education Wing:

PreK (age 4)-1st Grade: Rm. #221

2nd-5th Grade: Rm. #225

Nursery and Children’s Church

We are pleased to offer a staffed Nursery during on Sunday mornings for children up to age 8. Our staff is Safe Sanctuary certified and background checked. The Nursery is located in the education wing in Rm. # 122, and provides a safe, fun place for children to enjoy while you attend a service or class. Pagers are available for us to contact you if your child needs you. Nursery may also be provided for special church events and meetings, at the request of the ministry or group. Please contact Heather Harman at heather@asburyweb.org, or at the church office to inquire about Asbury’s Nursery.

Children’s Message

The Children’s Message is offered near the start of the 8:45 CAYR and 11:00 services each Sunday, September through May, by Ms. Heather or one of her helpers. The Puppets for Christ perform on the 4th Sunday of every month.  All children are welcome to come forward to hear a mini-sermon that was designed just for them, explaining the scripture reading for the day in words they will understand.  After the Children’s Message, children are invited to either stay for worship, or leave the service with the Nursery staff to attend Children’s Church or Nursery.

Christmas Craft Workshop

The workshop is usually offered on the first Saturday in December from 10-12:00.  Children are invited to come and make several Christmas crafts with our helpful volunteers!  A great way to get children and families in the Christmas spirit!

Trunk ‘R’ Treat

October 24, 2021! Puppets at 6:00, Trunks and Treats at 6:30!
Trunk ‘R’ Treat is a safe, fun community event for families and kids of all ages! The evening begins inside Fellowship Hall with a seasonal show by Asbury’s Puppets for Christ, and culminates outside, where children are greeted by rows of decorated cars offering treats! Cars must be pre-registered to participate and offer treats. Prizes are awarded for the best decorated vehicles! Watch for registration information in early October.

Vacation Bible School

Asbury’s VBS was held Sunday-Wednesday, July 11-14, 2021. It’s 4 evenings of fun for children ages 3-11. The theme for 2021 was The Knights of North Castle! We are looking forward to what God will do through VBS in 2022.

Puppets For Christ

Children can enjoy seeing performances by the Puppets for Christ all throughout the year!  They can be found the 4th Sunday of every month (September-May) in all services.  They also perform at Trunk ‘R’ Treat, Fall Festival, and other church activities and in the community.  You won’t want to miss their Spaghetti Dinners!

Third Grade Bibles

Late in September each year, all 3rd graders are presented with a beautifully engraved children’s Bible.  This gift is made possible by the generous donation of the Holloway family, in memory of Marianna Holloway.
