UptownKids is the children’s ministry at UC. We’re dedicated to partnering with parents to lead children to become fully devoted followers of Christ. Through age-specific lessons, activities, and small groups, children ages birth-5th grade learn biblical truths and real-life lessons they can apply to their lives every week in Uptown Kids.
Uptown Kids FAQ
What will my child learn in Uptown Kids?
The Bible is the most amazing book ever written, and we strive to bring its stories to life through creative activities and discussions that keep kids engaged. We want every child to love God's Word and understand the value of applying it to their lives. We know they'll have fun each week as they learn about who God is through games, activities, small groups, and video teaching.
Will my child make friends at Uptown Kids?
Absolutely! Our room environments and lessons are designed to help your child grow with kids in the same age group. We're passionate about supporting them in each stage of life, so we provide UptownKids options from birth-5th grade during our weekend experience service.
When you commit to attending the same service each week, your child will be surrounded by a small group full of familiar faces. As kids build relationships with leaders and other children, they gain the support and confidence to grow in their faith.
How do I check my child in to Uptown Kids?
On your first visit, look for the Kids Zone area. If you can’t find it, one of our pastors or volunteers will be happy to help you!
To check your child in, we’ll need some information at the time of arrival, including a family member's name, your child's name, your address, your phone number, and any special instructions. We'll be there every step of the way, right up to when you drop your kids off at the appropriate room, so feel free to ask questions! Check In begins at 10am.
AWANA is an acronym for Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed and comes from 2 Timothy 2:15. "Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth." The mission of AWANA is to teach children the gospel of Jesus Christ and to train them to serve Him.
The UC AWANA program is held on Sunday evenings from 5:00 to 7:00 PM and will begin August 15th. The Sunday evening club is age 3 through grade 6th.
The UC AWANA leaders are comprised of dedicated and Spirit filled Christians who have a love for children. There are presently over 15 adults who come out on Sunday evening to work with the children.
