Frequently Asked Questions
- What age of children are involved in ASAC Children’s Ministry? ASAC Children’s Ministries is comprised of children infants through fifth grade.
- How do I know my children will be safe – are the staff and volunteers screened? The safety of your child is our Priority! All of our volunteers and staff who work directly with the children must be Ministry Safe Certified, which includes training and a background check. Additionally in order to work with the children teachers and volunteers must have attended ASAC for a minimum of six months.
- Who can drop off and pick up my child? ONLY parents or legal guardians may pick up the children. If a parent or legal guardian requests for another adult to pick up a child it must be documented when the child is dropped off. Check-in and Check-out sheets are found at the Children and Family Ministry table located at the entrance of Camp DIT.
- What curriculum is used during Camp D.I.T? We use TRU curriculum, which supports our families beyond Sunday mornings. It supports our philosophy that parents are the primary spiritual leaders of their children’s Faith.
- Do families at All Saints worship together? We believe it is important to worship together as a family. We also realize the importance of the children having their own worship time to explore the Big God Story together in an environment especially created for them. The children will begin their worship time at Camp DIT then will rejoin their families for communion and the remainder of the service. The only exception is on Rest Stop Sunday/Family Day, which is the first Sunday of each month, Camp DIT is not held.
- What is Rest Stop Sunday/Family Day? Rest Stop Sunday takes place the first Sunday of each month. This allows our volunteers time to re-fresh and worship with the body of our Church family. The children will be able to enjoy a “child friendly” sermon from Father Filmore and to spend time together as a family. Camp DIT is not held on Rest Stop Sunday/Family Day.
- My child has special needs – what can I expect? We at ASAC believe that we are all “fearfully and wonderfully made!” We have a more intentional process for our families with specialized needs and we have a ministry, Feed my Lambs, in place just for you. Step 1: We want to start a conversation. There are important things about your child that will help us discover the best age environment for them. So, let's talk. This conversation can take place in person or over the phone, based upon your preference. Step 2: We use a multi-step process to help kids integrate into Camp D.I.T. Utilizing the "Buddy" system, we pair your child with a buddy that intentionally helps your child as they experience Camp D.I.T. each week. We understand that the first time isn't always a charm so the conversation will continue with you until we feel everyone is well acclimated.
- How can I be part of the ASAC Children’s Ministry team? ASAC welcomes volunteers and we love getting new people involved in our Children and Family Ministries.
