Children’s Discipleship Ministry Information – Kids 4 Christ
“Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.” Proverbs 22:6
A Christian education is the key to a successful life in the world and with Jesus. As a church family it is not only our desire to teach children in the way they should go, it is our responsibility. We provide nursery care, Sunday school classes, and special gatherings and programs that teach the children about the Bible and the love of Jesus. We strive to provide such support by providing the following:
Celebration Preschool is a ministry of Ashburn Presbyterian Church. We minister to children from 2 ½ years of age through pre-kindergarten. Celebration Preschool provides age appropriate education for children in the community, offers parenting support and education, and celebrates the good news of God’s love in Jesus Christ. Classes are available Monday through Friday from 8:45 AM – 11:45 AM and Monday through Thursday from 12:30 PM – 3:30 PM.
Kid’s Stuff is for 4th and 5th graders and meets the third Sunday of each month from October through May. This group meets from 12:30-2:00 PM in the CE fellowship room. Bible devotions, games, fun and fellowship is what Kid’s Stuff is all about. It is also a great way to prepare the children for transition in to the middle school youth discipleship ministry. The children are also involved in some mission work such as care packages for soldiers and Bingo with senior citizens.
A nursery is provided for children newborn through 2 years of age. While parents attend a small group or worship our little ones are cared for by loving and caring adults. We provide a safe and nurturing environment each Sunday morning during both worship services.
Kids 4 Christ
From September through mid-June, Kids 4 Christ (Sunday School) is held during both worship services at 9:30 AM and 11:15 AM, for children 3 years of age through 5th grade. Children will sit with their families during the opening portion of worship (approximately 10-12 minutes), and will then be dismissed to Sunday school after the children's message. During class, the children will be engaged in hands-on activities that include reading Scripture together, arts and crafts, and activity sheets.
Vacation Bible School
Vacation Bible School is the biggest outreach for Ashburn Presbyterian Church. Over 350 children and 150 volunteers gather together for a week in June for a great Bible adventure. Worship and praise time, Bible stories and missions, arts and crafts, recreation and snack time are all a part of this fun filled week.
