Health & Safety
Asbury Kids staff and volunteers are trained to create an atmosphere where families can confidently leave their children while you are in service. Every volunteer is screened with a background check, completes Safe Sanctuaries training yearly, and our Kids hallways are monitored with security cameras. Plus kids are required to be checked out through our stations before retreiving your child with a check-out slip. We also ask families to abide by our sick child guidelines that you can reference below to help keep everyone as healthy as possible. Don't worry parents - we've got this!
Have questions? We have the answers!

Sunday Night Dive
August 21 - May 7
Registration for the 2022-2023 school year is now open.
Sunday Night Dive is our discipleship program for kids in 2nd – 5th Grade. As they dive into what God has to say about who He is and who they are in Christ, our prayer is for kids to start awakening to the difference between what the world says is okay and what God says is true.
Confirmation helps kids in 5th-8th grade take their next step in being intentional about making their faith their own. Through these yearly classes that are led by Asbury pastors and ministry leaders, kids and students will be encouraged to explore the questions they have about their faith as they are taught what it looks like to grow in their walk with Jesus and live out their faith as part of the church family.
August - May
Asbury Kids Choirs provide a fun way to help kids shine the light of Jesus through worship! With a group for every age, kids will learn how to combine musicianship with love for Jesus, and have special times to participate in “big church” worship throughout the year as well as lead their peers in worship in Asbury Kids.
Acolytes & Crucifers
Acolytes and crucifers are special participants in a Traditional Worship service who help worshippers awaken to the presence of God as they bring in the light and cross of Christ. Anyone who is 3rd grade and up is welcome to serve in this role, and serving frequency is flexible. Contact Heather Batchelor to learn the significance and practicalities of being an acolyte or crucifer.
GROWTH PATH FOR KIDS
No matter what age your child is, there’s always a next step they can take in getting to know Jesus! In Asbury Kids, each age has a specific focus to help us dig deep and grow together. But don’t worry if your child starts later - all kids will learn all of these concepts.
With infants through two year olds, we focus on caring for your child’s needs and with foundational truths that God created them and loves them.
Your 3-year-olds through Kindergartners will start learning about how they can talk to God through prayer.
Kids in 1st through 2nd grade will be shown how to read the Bible for themselves and discover how God talks to us through His Word.
By the time your child is in 3rd-5th grade, they will learn more about what a relationship with God looks like and how they can decide to accept Jesus for themselves!

Partnering with Families
We’re in this with you! While Asbury Kids leaders get to pour into your kids once a week on Sunday mornings through small group and large group experiences, we want to encourage you as you help them grow 24/7.
To help support you as you disciple your child in faith throughout the week, we invite you to join our Parents & Leaders of Asbury Kids Facebook group to stay connected with other families and the Asbury Kids team.
Special Needs Support
No matter your child's needs, we're here for you! Each Sunday, we provide tailored environments for kids with special needs. As part of SonShine Friends for 3-year-olds through 5th graders, each child partners with a buddy alonside their peers as they encounter God through Bible stories, craft, music, and play. Find out more about our Special Needs Ministry below and be sure to fill out our registration form in order for us to best serve your family.
Asbury KidsCare is available in the Building 4 Lower Level for families attending weekly groups at Asbury or serving on campus, and during some special events. Kids engage with Bible stories and lessons and have fun with crafts, games, and toys depending on their age. Reservations must be pre-arranged through your group leader; parents must remain on campus.
