Welcome to Asbury UMC Children’s Ministry!


UPTOWN (Sunday Mornings)

 Children’s Church 8:30 a.m. and 11:00 a.m.

At Asbury, worship begins on Sunday mornings and our children worship with us. They lead us into the sanctuary as Acolytes, Bible Bearers and Torch Bearers. When we celebrate Baptism and Holy Communion, they participate. They join Pastor Kip Laxson for a children's moment during every Traditions service or worship however they're comfortable with Pastor Kelsey Grissom in The Bridge.

For parents who would like their children to participate in Children's Church, Kindergartners through second graders have the opportunity to experience intentional faith development through prose, proclamation, and prayer in small classroom settings.

Sunday School 9:45 – 10:45 AM

Children will connect with their peers in grade level small groups led by faithful adults who are vested in their relationship with God.
