Children’s Ministry

handsAsbury is a family-centered church, and being part of God’s church family is the best way we know to raise your child as a Christian in today’s world. Asbury works to include the family in their child’s spiritual education. Teaching the children to follow Jesus’ example, we encourage parents and other family members to model the same example of prayer and service. When children see loved and respected adults model a Christian life, they not only learn to follow God, but they gain the necessary tools to become a Christian leader.
