KIDS

As our youngest disciples, kids are so very important to Asbury. We are so excited that you are here and hope to get to connect with you and your family soon. You can find more information about what you can expect from our Sunday programs as well as monthly and annual events below. 


Asbury is also home to Asbury Day School. Licensed through the state of Texas, Asbury Day School offers a nurturing and educational Christian environment for preschool, pre-K and Kindergarten age children in the Pasadena, Deer Park, La Porte, Clear Lake and surrounding communities.

NURSERY

Asbury's newly renovated nursery is open Sundays from 8:45 AM to 12:15 PM and available for children newborn through 3 years old. Our nursey is designed with dedicated infant and toddler spaces that allow for safe age appropriate play and activities while allowing for high visability of all children and effortless communication between nursery staff. Through music, play and crafts children will begin to learn of God’s great love for them.

SUNDAY SCHOOL

We offer PreK and Elementary Sunday School classes from 10:00 AM to 10:50 AM for children 3 years through 5th Grade. Our Sunday School lessons include a variety of activities, to help provide children with a meaningful understanding of who Jesus is and how much God loves them. Using stories found in the Bible, children will engage with God’s word, learn that Jesus is with them always and how they can worship, grow, serve and share Jesus everywhere they go. They will also have a lot of fun!

WOW WORSHIP

During the 11:00 AM Worship Service we offer WOW Worship (an interactive worship experience designed specifically for children 3 years to 3rd grade) in our children's ministry wing (located in the same building as the sanctuary).  Children will begin worship in the sanctuary and after the children's message those who want to participate in WOW worship will head down the hall with our children's ministry director Mrs. Paula and our WOW Worship volunteers. WOW worship is offered every Sunday except the 1st Sunday of the month when we celebrate communion together.

SAFETY

Volunteers at Asbury are trained to create an atmosphere where families can confidently leave their children while they are in worship. Directors and nursery staff are CPR & First Aid certified. All staff and volunteers are Safe Sanctuary Trained and background checked. Don't worry parents - we've got this!

WHAT WE OFFER

3rd Grade Bible Presentation

Studying Scripture is one of the most important ways we learn about God. Asbury presents personal Bibles to each third grade student as a statement of their growing faith development and as recognition of their being old enough to study Scripture on their own. This Bible is a gift from the congregation. It is our prayer that this gift will be a starting point for a deeper relationship with God.
