“Guiding children to put their faith in Jesus and to teach them who God is and how He wants them to live.”
What We Do
Shortly after arriving, children are moved to their large group environment where they hear the Bible story. We use videos, props, and characters for the story – anything that makes the Bible come to life. We also carve out time each week for children to sing as loud as they want and tell God how much they love Him.
After participating in Large Group, we break into small groups where their leaders help them understand how the day’s bottom line can fit into their everyday life. Small group leaders in 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.
UpStreet is built around THREE basic truths – Wisdom, Faith, & Friendship
These truths are amplified through 36 monthly virtues such as kindness, generosity and faith, using 150 Bible stories. Every week there is a key truth that we drive home. It’s the ONE THING we want kids to understand and grab onto during their hour in UpStreet.
