Welcome to Uptown Kids

Summer fun is not cancelled! This summer at Washington Alliance, we are so excited to connect with your children and help them grow and experience God’s love. Each month we will offer different workshops available in-person at the church or in a Zoom interactive format. All workshops are free and led by our Uptown Kids Team. Parents are encouraged to have an hour of “free time” during the workshops with other parents in the church pavilion, yard, or parking lot!

All workshops are available to all kids, preschool and elementary, and will connect with God and His Word. You can register your child and invite their friends. Just click on the workshop title below that you are interested in to register! Whether you are planning to attend the in-person workshop or the Zoom interactive experience, please register by clicking below. You will receive a list of materials (easily found around the house) after you complete the registration. If you are registering for the Zoom workshop, you will receive a Zoom link. Please contact Kim Greenleaf, Director of Children’s Ministries, with any questions.
