UpStreet is our Sunday morning environment for elementary-aged kids (K-5th grade) that meets at 9:15am & 11:00am. On UpStreet, we believe the Bible should never be boring, worship can be really loud, and good leaders always care. Before kids head off to middle school, we want to make sure these 3 things stick…
1. I need to make the wise choice.
2. I can trust God no matter what.
3. I should treat others the way I want to be treated.
What happens down on UpStreet?
Kids are challenged every Sunday on UpStreet to trust God, make wise choices and build lasting friendships. Here’s what a typical morning on UpStreet looks like.
Welcome: Each child is greeted by their small group leader. Kids participate with their small group in an activity meant to introduce the one TRUTH, or bottom line, we want kids to walk away with and remember that morning.
Large Group Environment: Shortly after arriving, kids travel to our large group environment where they hear the Bible story. They will watch an engaging video of a Bible story that makes the Bible come to life. We also carve out time each week for kids to sing as loud as they want and tell God how much they love Him.
Small Group Environment: After participating in Large Group, kids travel back to their small group classroom where their leaders help them understand how the day’s bottom line can fit into their everyday life. Small group leaders on UpStreet are serious about having fun with kids and passionate about teaching the TRUTH. We want kids to see how God’s word fits into their lives, to learn how to talk to Him and to build friendships that will last. Every Sunday they connect with the same small group of kids and the same small group leader. That way they get connected and we have the best chance to establish a relationship that’s going to matter when they need it most.
