We are so glad that you are choosing to trust us with the care of your child! UpStreet is the environment for elementary students (Kindergarten‐5th Grade) where we partner together with you for the spiritual growth of your child.
Our mission in UpStreet is to guide children to put their faith in Jesus, and to teach them who God is and how He wants them to live.
Every Sunday we plan a full hour of fun for your child! It includes an engaging large group gathering followed by a more personal small group time. On UpStreet we believe the Bible should never be boring, worship can be really loud, and good leaders always care. We want UpStreet to be the best part of your child’s week!
Check-in opens at 9:00 for the 9:15 service. Check-in opens at 10:45 for the 11:00 service.
We GREATLY encourage parents to come early to make sure that your child is able to be in their same class!
When you arrive, come straight to UpStreet. A team of helpful volunteers will greet you at our host team desk. You will fill out a guest registration form and they will enter you in our secure database system. Every family receives a Family Ministry key card when they register. Place this immediately on your key chain. When you return use this to check in at any Family Ministry check-in station.
Please notify us of ANY and ALL allergies, medical and/or behavioral special needs on the space provided on the guest registration form. Allergies will be placed on your child’s printed name tag, but please also notify the small group leader.
For children with medical or behavioral specials needs, we pair them with a “buddy” who will be their personal guide to help them have a successful hour. If your child might be in need of a “buddy” please email us at least a week in advance and we will partner you with an assigned buddy.
Your child will receive a nametag with a unique set of numbers and letters at the bottom that matches a corresponding parent tag. Your parent tag will allow you access to the UpStreet hallway and is matched with your child’s nametag to ensure safety. You don’t have to wear them, just keep them close and available!
All UpStreet Volunteers are carefully trained and background checked before serving in your child’s classroom.
If we need to contact you for any reason, “UpStreet” and your parent number will be displayed on the screen in the auditorium.
Your child will be placed in a small group with caring leaders and other kids their age. The small group time allows children to build quality friendships and discuss how that week’s Bible lesson applies to their life.
Large Group is a fun and engaging time where children come together for games, singing, and teaching from the Bible. It’s a lot of fun and something your child won’t want to miss!
We work hard to help each child understand and embrace these three basic truths: I need to make the WISE choice. I can TRUST God no matter what. I should treat OTHERS the way I want to be treated.
That’s awesome! We’re excited for you. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Christmas is a celebration!
