Ashland Children's Ministry

Children's ministries as Ashland aim to guide and encourage children from birth through 5th grade to know, love, and follow Jesus as their friend and Savior and trust of the love of God in ever aspect of their lives. We strive toward this goal through Sunday school, our Wednesday night Spirit Junction programs, special events, and through activities planned with children in mind, including:

 Vacation Bible School, Trunk or Treat, Yearly Christmas Program, Pastor's Egg Decorating, Christmas Holiday Worship, and much more!!

Ashland is also very concerned about the safety of our children when they are left in our care. Click here to read about our child protection policy. We hope you will consider visiting us anytime and get a closer look at to what Ashland is all about!
