Children & Youth

“From the mouths of children and infants You have ordained praise”  – Matthew 21:16

At Ascension, kids are welcomed and loved!  We believe that all ages are a vital part of our church family.  Children and youth are encouraged to participate in our worship, community, and in age-appropriate programming focused on their discipleship.


If you are like many parents, your decision about a church has much to do with opportunities for your child to grow in his or her faith and maturity. We believe children are a part of the church! Our vision for this includes seeing children worshipinggrowing, and giving.  To view our full vision statement for Children’s Ministry, click here.

We also recognize that most children’s ministry happens in the home.  We are continually looking for opportunities to equip parents with effective resources to make this possible.

Each Sunday, we offer a robust Sunday morning children’s program that consists of carefully chosen curriculum, taught by teachers invested in knowing your kids.  The program is designed to create an engaging environment for every age level.

The vision of our youth group is to be “A Christ-centered and open-hearted youth group dedicated to fostering faithful disciples through love, service, and the teaching of Biblical truth.”

Ascension’s website could not contain the enthusiasm of the youth and their leaders, so they created their own! To find out all of the specifics of youth programming, please visit www.caygonline.comAnd, CAYG stands for “Church of the Ascension Youth Group!!”
