Safe and Secure

Your kids should be able to flourish in a safe and biblical environment.

Ascend Kids ministry provides a safe place for children to learn the truths of the gospel and biblical principles in age-appropriate ways – while having fun. We use a curriculum designed to instill in children the love, faith, and knowledge that will one day lead to righteous living.

Ascend Kids Registration

Step 1:

Register online ahead of time or before Sunday services at the Ascend Kids Welcome Desk. Each Sunday morning, complete check-in with a volunteer at the desk.

Step 2:

Drop off your child at their age-appropriate class. A volunteer will be available to assist you in finding the correct classroom. At drop-off, your child will receive a name tag sticker. You will receive a corresponding parent tag required for pick-up.

Step 3:

Pick up your child after the service at their age-appropriate classroom. Don’t forget to bring your parent tag from check-in – we require it for the security of all children!
