Youth/Children’s Ministries


At Ashley Baptist Church you will find a clean, dedicated nursery ministry.  We offer childcare for infants through preschool age children during all worship services and events throughout the week. 

Sunday School

Every Sunday morning at 10:00 am, the children meet together for classes.  Our teachers make the Bible come alive with lessons geared specially for your child’s comprehension.  Some of the program elements include Scripture memory, devotional helps, and character development.  Come see your child grow in Christ with enthusiasm and excitement.

Kids Corner – Children’s Church

Children’s Church is a challenging time of competition, puppets, special music, Bible drills, missionary stories, and of course, practical Bible preaching.  This ministry for children, kindergarten through 4th grade, is designed to prepare the child to listen and comprehend when they are in the adult services.  Kids Corner can be summed as church for kids!


Kids4Truth is an exciting time of games, prizes, but most importantly – Bible teaching.  Every Wednesday at 7:00 pm during the school year, children from kindergarten to sixth grade come from all over to attend one of the most exciting time in West Michigan!  What’s all the excitement about?  Kids can memorize verses, bring visitors, win at games, and sing great songs to earn Kids4Truth dollars to spend at the Kids4Truth Store!  Don’t miss out on a fun time to learn and grow.  For more information, click here.

Summer Kids Club

During the summer months, we take a break from Kids4Truth, but that doesn’t mean that the fun stops!  Children from kindergarten to 6th grade can come to Summer Kids Club on Wednesday nights at 7:00 pm where they learn Bible stories, sing songs, and participate in exciting competition.  Don’t miss out!


ALIVE stands for Always Living In View of Eternity.  Jr. and Sr. high young people meet for fellowship and Bible preaching on Sunday mornings at 10:00 am and Wednesday nights at 7:00 pm.  Teens are challenged spiritually and provided opportunities to serve the Lord in the church.  They also get together for monthly outings and service opportunities all throughout the year.

Neighborhood Bible Time

Transportation Ministry
Adults, children, and teens are all welcome to ride our vans for any of our services.  If you have a transportation need, please call us at 616-794-3410.
Nursing Home Services
Once a month, Teens ALIVE will go visit the elderly in three area nursing homes to encourage their hearts and minister to them.  The teens will sing, play their instruments, and give their testimonies before one of the pastors speak.  This is an important way that teens can unselfishly show the love of God.
