If you are like most parents, your decision about a church has much to do with opportunities for your child to grow in his or her faith and maturity. Most parents want to know that their children will be loved, nurtured and accepted as they are challenged to grow in their knowledge and love of Christ. Our desire at Church of the Ascension is threefold. We want children to
• Belong: We want children to be a part of our church family. We encourage the children to build a healthy view of self and a sense of belonging within the body of Christ. We hope that every child will be encouraged by our times together and know more and more how precious he or she is in God’s sight. We also want our children to build friendships with other children and adults, and to grow in the knowledge that they are part of the church of today, not just the church of tomorrow!
• Believe: We want children to develop and grow in a relationship with Christ. We share the good news about Jesus Christ and the love, acceptance and forgiveness He offers to us all. The children are given opportunities, if they choose, to begin a relationship with Christ that we pray will last a lifetime.
• Behave: We want children to work out the implications of faith in their lives. We join with you in preparing your child for a lifetime of challenges, vital decisions, and ministry within the Church. We do this by introducing your child to the treasures of the Bible and helping him or her to know the joy of a personal relationship with God.
