Children's Ministry

The children of Ashford Memorial Methodist Church meet each Sunday morning at 10:00 for Sunday School. During morning worship, Rev. Greene gives a Children's Sermon then the children are dismissed for Children's Church. The children also participate in the annual Watkinsville Christmas Parade and have a Christmas pageant and cookie swap in early December.

 

Youth

The Ashford Memorial Methodist Church Youth (AMMY) meet weekly for activities planned and led by the Youth Director, Ellie Wooten. Each Christmas season the youth prepare and pack items donated by church members for Samaritan's Purse Operation Christmas Child Shoebox ministry.

 

Music

The Music Ministry is led by Organist Ann Evans, Pianist Tony Wall, and Choir Director Daniel Shafer. Music for the worship services consists of traditional hymns accompanied on the organ and piano.  The Ashford Choir ministers each Sunday with an anthem prior to Rev.

Identical Christmas cantatas are held the Sunday prior to Christmas and on Christmas Eve and are concluded with a beautiful lighting of candles by the congregation.
