Ministry to Children & Youth

Children from the Sunday School present their “footsteps” altar cloth to Rev. Anne and Rev. June.

Curriculum

The Ministry to Children & Youth has designed a curriculum that meets the needs of children and youth with a variety of learning styles through arts, music, quiet learning and physical games.

We have group activities such as bulletin board art and making cards for residents in nursing homes.

We have seasonal activities and multi-week themes to help children understand their church, the Bible, and their Anglican faith. At the beginning of each theme, we provide a take-home sheet with a summary of activities the children will be doing, questions to discuss and reinforcing activities to do at home. This will give multiple opportunities to children who are not able to be with us every week to cover lessons and stories.

Nursery

Nursery services of crafts, games, stories, songs, play, and a healthy snack are available for children up to four years of age from the start of the service until Communion. Parents/caregivers must pick up their children prior to the start of Communion.

Safe Church

At Ascension, all adults involved with minor children must participate in the “Screening  in Faith” process that includes a police background check. We also have an open classroom teaching area.
