Upstreet is our weekend environment where elementary-aged kids learn to trust God, make wise choices, and build lasting friendships.
What is The Orange Theory?
At New Life, our Family Ministries strive to partner with parents to help create a foundation of faith in children and teens that lasts a lifetime. This partnership strategy is based on the Orange philosophy, by Rethink. By combining the love of the church (yellow), with the heart of the home (red), then together (orange) we can create a dynamic influence in the spiritual lives of children and students. We believe that God designed Moms and Dads to be the primary influence in their kids’ lives, especially spiritually, and we aim to leverage the power of Mom and Dad, not replace it.
We take great care to make sure our leaders are aware of your child’s food allergies. We ask parents about allergies at check in and then provide brightly colored labels to indicate allergies to our leaders.
Yes. At New Life, protecting those placed in our care is our top priority. 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 at check-in, and then parents are given a copy of 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 to notify you.
- Upstreet is a secure, locked environment once service begins.
