UpStreet is our weekend environment where kids, K-5th grade, learn to trust God, make wise choices, and build lasting friendships.

On Upstreet, we believe the Bible should never be boring, worship can be really loud and good leaders always care.

Most kids form their entire idea of who God is, and whether or not they will have a relationship with Him, before leaving 5th grade.  That is why we make the most out of each hour we have with your kids.  On UpStreet your child will be partnered with caring Small Group Leaders. They will experience energetic worship, a dynamic story with a weekly bottom line, as well as a monthly bible verse and virtue to apply to their everyday life.  We then partner with the parents to continue each lesson, story, virtue and bottom line into the week at home. We believe what happens at home is more important than what happens on UpStreet, and are excited to partner with you to create a life long faith!  One way we partner with parents is by providing resources to help lead your kids spiritually at home. Below are the resources we have available on UpStreet:

God Time Cards and Parent Cue Cards are just some of the resources we offer to help bring your child’s faith alive at home. It is a exciting way to have devotional time with God, while also enjoying fun activities with the family. These are sent home with your children at the beginning of the month. What’s better than that? If your child brings the God Time Cards in at the end of the month they can earn a prize!

KIDstuf is a high energy, zany and crazy, yet focused shared Family Production for families with children K-5th grade. KIDstuf an extension of the weekends on UpStreet with a full drama and dance team ready to reveal the virtue we teach on UpStreet. We believe that providing a shared experience for families focused on God and the virtue will help make the virtue part of daily life and conversation in your home. KIDstuf takes place one Friday a month in the Worship Center at New Life. Don’t miss this month’s show!

Learn About Our UpStreet Virtues

Each month on UpStreet we focus on one Godly virtue and scripture stemming from the 3 basic truths we teach. Everything we do on UpStreet is geared toward teaching the virtue.  The UpStreet & KIDstuf dance team is just one way we strive to impact and energize the children attending UpStreet.  It is important to us to take the monthly virtue your children learn on UpStreet and reinforce those principles in a variety of ways through our children programs such as KIDstuf.

Are my children safe when attending UpStreet?2017-12-01T16:54:33+00:00

Yes. At New Life we believe strongly in protecting those placed in our care, and we have taken many measures to provide the safest environment we can for your children while in UpStreet.  Here are some safety factors we have in place to help ease your mind.

  • Background Checks
    We run a background check and screen every volunteer serving in Family Ministries through a national system called Screen Now.
  • Paging System
    We provide every child & parent with a paging number.  This randomly generated number is assigned to your child and parents are given the same number.  This number must be shown to our Safety Team to gain entry into UpStreet.  In the event that your child needs you while you are attending the worship service, the number assigned to your child will appear on the screens in the Worship Center.
  • UpStreet is a secure, locked environment once service begins.
