The Ascent Children's Ministry partners with parents to instill God's Word into the lives of our kids. We value the opportunity for building a foundation of faith and give parents the tools to become the primary spiritual leader in the home. Our desire is for kids to move from childhood beliefs to lifetime faith.
“Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward.” (Psalm 127:3, ESV) In gratitude for God's gift of children and for parents to dedicate their parenting for the Lord's purpose, public Child Dedications occur in October and in the spring. The next Child Dedication will be held on May 7, 2017.
For more information, contact the Director of Pre-School Ministry at the campus nearest you.

Kids' Camp 2017!
Nestled in the heart of Black Forest and surrounded by 400 plus acres of majestic ponderosa pines, we have found the perfect spot for The Ascent Kids’ Camp.
Our Bible based camp is full of adventure. The activities are sure to thrill while helping your child grow spiritually and connect with others in their community.
This year’s theme, “The Lord is My Banner” reminds us that God is our source of strength. God wants us to stay under His banner of love and protection as we depend and trust in Him.
The dates are Wednesday, June 7 through Friday, June 9, 2017.
Registration is now open, click HERE.
Volunteers are needed to help make Kids' Camp a wonderful experience for all the kids! Volunteer sign-up.
Our Sunday Ministry to children includes:
TINY TOWN (Birth-Pre K)
A loving and nurturing ministry is provided during all services every Sunday of the year. Your child is special to us and we want his or her first impressions of church to be a positive one as they begin to learn about the love of Jesus.
ADVENTURE QUEST (K-4th Grade)
On Sundays we explore scripture chronologically while keeping God at the center of every lesson. Children become familiar with the Bible timeline, the redemptive story of Jesus and how we can each be a part of the Big God Story. Leaders create space for children to hear from the Holy Spirit and respond to Him during quite moments. Our morning also includes fun and engaging learning environments through hands on, age appropriate activities that reinforce the main Bible point of the day.
ELEVATE (5th-6th Grade)
Elevate is designed specifically for 5th & 6th graders who are in a stage of transition from the elementary to teenage years. Our team of Elevate leaders desire to come alongside students as they grow in their walk with the Lord. We strive to create an environment where this age group can learn biblical truths, develop their own faith and strengthen their relationship with Jesus Christ. We do this by partnering with parents, the primary spiritual leaders in the home and equipping leaders and parents to fulfill God's word by teaching His truths. Elevate meets during all service times.
