Our Children's Ministries Team's goal is to help children (age birth through 6th grade) grow as disciples of Jesus, with an emphasis on Faith at Home, through programming, Bible basics, prayer, worship, stewardship and serving others. We strive towards this goal through Sunday School, Spirit Junction (our Wednesday night programs), Vacation Bible School and special events such as the Christmas Program, Holiday Workshop, Family Advent, Pastor's Egg Decorating, and more!

Our Sunday school program is designed for children to learn, by age level, in a traditional Sunday morning format. The children are in class for approximately 50 minutes where they learn the daily Bible lesson using the Deep Blue curriculum. They are taught lesson so that they know basics by the time they reach certain age levels. These age level standards were developed by the Children's Ministry Team. Teachers use crafts, stories, puppets, DVD components and other special activities to help the children learn in a style that is best for them. Children's Sunday school time starts at 10 a.m. and lasts until 10:50 a.m.
MidWeek@ Ashland is program is designed for children to learn in groups that include more than one age level. This program is much more casual and the children learn in a Vacation Bible school type setting. They learn using games, crafts, snack, and music. The children are encouraged to learn the daily Bible verse. They earn "Bible Bucks" for learning the verse, for attendance, bringing a friend, and exceptional behavior. Once a quarter the children go to the Bible Bucks store to "shop" for items that are on display for that month. Dinner is offered at 5:00 p.m. with classes starting at 5:45 p.m. All activities are finished by 7:00 p.m.
