if only we were…

Ascension Kids and Tweens!

 

Welcome to Children and Family Ministries at Ascension,

Christian formation and activities are important for all ages. The children of Ascension are highly valued  and we strive to make them a part of the faith journey in our church. Your children are extensions of you and your values and my hope is to grow and learn together in God’s love. Please join us for Sunday offerings as well as special events for all children. We also have a youth group for tweens in grades 3-5. If you have the social bug and would like to stay connected with all the latest events for Children and Family Ministry, we have a Facebook Group just for you! Send in an email to register for this page.

Blessings,

Ms. Megan, Director of Children and Family Ministries, megan@knoxvilleascension.org.

 

Sunday School

Sunday School classes are offered for children Pre-K through 5th grade. The Sunday School time is 10:10-11:00 am. We have a class for Pre-K, K-Grade 2, and Grades 3-5 (see below for more details). To drop off your kids, head to the Children’s Education Wing on the North side of the building.

Godly Play

What is Godly Play? Children have an innate sense of the presence of God. The Godly Play approach helps them to explore their faith through story, to gain religious language and to enhance their spiritual experience though wonder and play. The Godly Play program is open to children in Pre-Kindergarten through second grade. Two classes are offered during the Sunday School hour (10:15-11:00 am): Godly Play One (Pre-K, Room 202) and Godly Play Two (K-2, Room 203) . Come join us!

Connect

What is Connect? Connect is a fun, dynamic curriculum designed for Tweens (grades 3-5) that includes video, bible lesson, and craft sessions engaging to this age group.

Children’s Church

We offer Children’s Church in the fall and spring during the 9 and 11:15 services, and in the summer during the 10:00 am service. Bring your kids to the beginning of the service. One of the junior acolytes will guide the children out of the worship service to the Children’s Church room.  If you or your child would prefer, please feel free to walk your child from worship to Children’s Church. We value your child’s comfort and safety.

Tween Youth Group

Tween Youth Group is open to kids in grades three through five. We meet twice a month for fun, formation, and fellowship. Activities range from movies to Bible lessons, service projects to special outings. Occasionally, special interest groups are offered like: Girls’ Reading Crew and LEGO My Bible.

Date Night

From 6-9 pm on the first Friday of every month, the nursery is open for parents to drop off their children and enjoy an evening out or just some quiet time by themselves. Fellowship with other couples in the church is usually offered and is completely optional. Newborns to kids 12 years old will enjoy pizza, movies, playing outside, games and fun with their friends. The childcare cost is covered by the church, but we do ask that you bring a few dollars to chip in for the cost of pizza and drinks for the kids. To RSVP for Date Night, email nursery16@knoxvilleascension.org.
