Children's Video of the Week
God has welcomed all of us into His forever family, and we are pleased welcome the smallest members of you family!
While we encourage Moms and Dads to share the worship of God with their children, childcare is available in our nursery for infants through age three during Sunday worship services and classes.
During our worship on Sunday’s, children ages 3-10 have the option to be dismissed to go to an age-appropriate worship time, while the Pastor shares his message with adults. During this time, children will share prayer requests, sing some worship songs, and learn a lesson from the scriptures. One of the resources we love on a rotating basis is the Children’s Catechism using Kid’s Quest Catechism Club and Beginning Kid’s Quest. Learning the Children’s Catechism helps them build a foundation of what we believe as Christians. When the Pastor’s message is over, the kids return to the sanctuary for the remainder of the service.
Sunday School Classes for Kids (PreSchool – 6th Grade)
Classes specifically geared for children in preschool through sixth grade are available on Sundays at 11:25 am.
Every year we offer an Upward Indoor Basketball Camp. The camp begins in the Spring and usually runs for 5-6 weeks. It is geared for children in Kindergarten through 6th Grade. Each night the kids work on skills, scrimmages, eat a snack, have devotions with their coaches, and hear 'God’s Game Plan' for their lives.
Vacation Bible School (VBS)
Each summer we have a Vacation Bible School for children. New Life transforms into various themes as the kids discover the greatness of Jesus. Due to COVID, we did not have VBS in 2020, and we only held basketball camp in 2021. We hope to be back in full force in 2022 with all the events your kids love.
