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.

Let’s get you connected with Uptown Kids! Please fill out this form to register your children for Uptown Kids Sunday Mornings and/ or Uptown Kids Wednesday AWANA. Sunday, September 10th we will be having our “Move Up Day” for Sunday mornings and Wednesday, September 27th Awana will begin.

Sunday Morning, Wednesday, Special Services

Nursery (Birth-23mo)

Our children’s ministry is blessed to care for your little ones while you are worshiping with us! Nursery is provided all Sunday, Wednesday, and special services. 

Sunday Morning Uptown Kids

Preschool (2yr-5yr) & ELEMENTARY

Children are engaged each week in energetic worship, hands-on activities, Bible lessons, games, and more.  It is our goal to equip kids to apply Biblical truth to their lives while focusing on Jesus!


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 27th through April 2023 from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday evenings. Check out awana.org for more information!
