Formation offerings for children and families 

Nursery (0 – 4): Courtyard Room 103

Children are always welcome in Ascension’s worship services, but our nursery is staffed and welcoming for any young ones needing respite or play time - open from 9am-11:30am to engage the little ones.

Godly Play (Pre-k – 2nd Grade): Courtyard Room 105

Children come to know God, not just about God, in this fun-interactive, Bible-based formation. Children will be exploring their faith through story to gain religious language and while enhancing their spiritual experience through wonderment and play.

Connect (3 – 5 Grade)

Journey through the Bible exploring the text through Legos, art, games and more. All 3rd-5th graders are invited to join this engaging hands-on scripture time!

Children’s Chapel: Courtyard, Room 105 (Pre-k – 2nd Grade)

During our 10:15 Sunday service, children are welcome to join in our Children’s Chapel. Follow the procession from the sanctuary to worship in a child-centered chapel service.

Children/Youth Worship participants: (Sanctuary)

Children and youth from grades 3 and up are invited to stay in the worship service each Sunday and become an active participant in the liturgy - shown to be the greatest tool for faith formation. Children can be acolytes, youth vergers, readers, greeters, and ushers, and we love to see children in our worship service!  For more information, please contact Jeanne Neill, our acolyte master, at or Sarah Klitzke, director of Christian Formation, at
