We love children and we want them to know Jesus! Here at Gashland, children will be loved, known, protected, and taught about the God who made them and wants to know them. We desire to partner with parents in conversations of faith with their children. We teach children through multi-generational relationships and gospel-focused, Bible-based curriculum. If you have any questions, feel free to email Rachael Adams at rachael@gashland.org!

What: Sermon Search is a wonderfully interactive tool that helps children participate in the sermon. They listen to the sermon and collect clues along the way. At the end, they solve a puzzle using those clues. This is a fun way to train our children to listen well on Sunday morning. Prizes are awarded periodically throughout the year! For those of you joining us virtually, Sermon Search is uploaded to the virtual worship pages every Sunday morning.
