(10:15 a.m.) Age-Appropriate Sunday School classes are taught by loving adult leaders for
children of all ages. Teachers’ names and pictures are posted outside each room so you will know exactly who will be caring for your child. Sunday school time includes Bible lessons, practical application for children, and some interactive response time that may include discussions, arts and crafts, music, or productive play time.
Vacation Bible School
Every Summer Asbury Church offers a week of VBS for children of all ages. The VBS program includes Bible Story time,
music, recreation, snacks, and crafts. Many excited adult and youth volunteers work hard to make this a fun and
exciting week for your child to hear about and experience how God can work in their lives.
In preparation for sharing the Christmas story kid-style, our children spend the Wednesday evenings prior to the presentation learning music and dramatic parts, as well as doing fun activities related to the Christmas story. Children of all ages are included as they present a Christmas play, including a fully-costumed version of the nativity story.
Child Safety Policy
Asbury UMC follows a specific child safety policy known as Safe Sanctuaries. The basic tenets of Safe Sanctuaries includes the following:
- Background checks – All paid or volunteer workers with children and youth must have criminal background checks
- Six Month waiting period – no volunteers may work with children or youth until they have been involved in the church for at least six months
- Two adult policy – Any group of children or youth must have two, unrelated adults with them at all times
- High Visibility – All rooms used for programming must have windows in doors or walls for public visibility
