Our Children's Ministry

We don't believe that kids/youth are the future of the church; we believe they ARE the church! We are dedicated to create a dynamic, exciting and engaging environment where kids are able to LOVE GOD, LOVE PEOPLE, & SHARE JESUS. At Upwards Church, we love kids!

  • your child's safety

    is our first priority

    Your child is important and their safety is our priority. On your first visit, we'll help you complete a short form listing your contact information and your child(ren)'s information. This information is entered into our database to help maintain our secure check-in system. Each of our Children's Ministry Team volunteers have passed a background check before serving in a classroom.

  • Nursery

    birth to 2 years

    Our nursery is safe, clean, and filled with age-appropriate toys for your child to enjoy during the service. The nursery is staffed with screened and trained volunteers who love babies! Your little one will spend church time listening to songs, interacting with Bible stories, and being prayed over.

  • elementary

    3 years to 5th grade

    We want every moment with your child to be intentional teaching your child to love God and others. We have created a fun and positive environment for your child through age-appropriate activities.
