Loving God Back

& loving others


ministry purpose statement

In Uptown Kids, it is our goal to assist parents in the spiritual nurturing and training of their children and to make disciples of Jesus. A disciple is one who is being changed to look like Jesus: loving God back and loving others.

AWANA (2yr-5th grade)

Awana is an international, Bible-centered children’s program that incorporates Bible memorization, lessons, and game time. The acronym Awana comes from the first letters of Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed and is taken from 2 Timothy 2:15. 

Awana is open to all children ages 2 through 5th grade. This year we will meet September 22nd through April 2022 from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday evenings. Check out awana.org for more information!
