Children ministry hero

We are especially grateful for the presence and ministry of children and youth in our worshipping community. Ascension offers two Church School classes that are generally divided by age group, 1) pre-Kindergarten through first grade and 2) second through fifth grades. These classes run from September through June.

Church School takes place at 10:15 am each Sunday in Dewitt Hall.

Curriculum:  We use a program which we call SPARK -Activate FaithIt is a lectionary-based program that includes teachings focused specifically on our Episcopal traditions.  The Activate Faith class is led by Ascension’s Coordinator of Children’s Ministries, Debbie Crouch, with assistance of Ascension parishioners each week. All teachers and helpers are certified through the Episcopal Diocese of Olympia’s Safeguarding God’s Children training program.

Our Nursery is staffed by trained child care providers, led by Anna Jeglinski and Marie Hebert. Child care is available on Sundays beginning at 10:15 am.
