Welcome to Asbury Kids, where every family and every child is welcomed and affirmed for who they are!

We are thankful for the privilege of partnering with each child’s grown-ups in the faith formation of their children, and we love providing a safe, loving, progressive, and inclusive environment for kids and their grown-ups. 

What to Expect

Every Sunday you will be greeted with a smile and welcomed by our staff and volunteers.  All of our staff and volunteers are Safe Gatherings certified to ensure the safety of your child. 

Our nursery is available from 8:30 am - 12:30 pm for infants and all children who have not yet entered Kindergarten. You will be greeted, checked in, and given a pager in case our nursery attendants need to reach you for any reason. Your child will be engaged in play by our nursery attendants.

When We Gather

We gather together on Sundays at 10 am for Kids’ Hour. During this hour, kids PreK - 5th grade are invited to encounter, interact, and engage with Bible stories through different learning styles and activities at their own level. We will spend multiple weeks focused on our Bible story, and explore that story through multiple rotation options, including art, music, games, cooking, drama, science, videos and more!! 

We also gather for Children’s Church on Sundays during the 11 am service immediately following the children’s time in worship. Four months out of the year, we utilize the Children’s Church time for rehearsal for our Kids’ Sing.

Programs & Events

Children's Church

Kids PreK - 3rd grade are welcome to join us for Children's church after the Children's Moment at the 11 a.m. service in the kids' wing (3rd floor east). We might make a craft, play a game, watch a movie, or learn a new song and dance. No matter the activity, kids will have fun learning and growing together!

Kids Hour

At 10 am on Sundays, kids PreK - 5th grade are invited to the Kids' Wing (3rd floor east) to encounter, interact, and engage with Bible stories through different learning styles and activities at their own level. We will spend multiple weeks focused on a single Bible story by exploring multiple rotation options: art, music, games, cooking, drama, science, videos, and more!!

Kids Sing

Once a quarter, the kids enhance our worship experience by offering both joy and a song or two. The month prior to their participation in worship, we utilize the Children's Church time at the 11 a.m. service to learn the songs and teach about leading worship through song. Alicia Wolff, an elementary education teacher, leads this group. You may email her at for more information.
