Children’s Ministries 

Main Point of Contact: Rachael Adams, Director of Children’s Ministries | rachael@gashland.org

We seek to introduce children to the redemptive story of the Gospel found in Scripture. Through relationships with their peers and their teachers, and through Bible-based, God-focused curriculum, we hope to point even the young to a life long relationship with God.

Children’s Church | Age 4- 1st Grade

KidZone | Pre-K-5th Grade

Pre-K through 5th grade meets for KidZone in their classes from 6:30-7:45 following the Wednesday night Conversations meal. They rotate in teams through fun stations ending in high energy praise and worship. 

Sermon Search |  Grades 2nd-5th

A wonderful interactive tool for children in 2nd through 5th grade to participate in the sermon. They listen to the sermon and collect clues along the way. At the end they solve a puzzle using the clues. This is a fun way to train our children to listen well on Sunday morning.  Prizes are awarded periodically as well! 

Vacation Bible School (VBS) | Age 4 – 5th grade

A fun-filled, themed week of worship, lessons, crafts,  and fellowship in the summer. Held in the evenings. Click HERE to visit the VBS 2014 page!
