Someone mentioned to me the other day that when they think of a new church, they think of a dozen people gathered in someone’s living room, with the kids playing down in the basement. They were really surprised to learn of the environments we have for kids! They said, “What’s UpStreet?” One of my kids gushed, “It’s only the best thing… ever!”
The truth is, about a year ago Access Church was just that—a dozen faithful people meeting in someone’s living room. Praying. Giving. Daring to tell God that they wanted to be used by Him however he saw fit. What an amazing year it has been! We can no longer fit in anyone’s living room, and there is, well, “the best thing ever” for our elementary kids on Sunday evenings—UpStreet!
It’s a pretty cool environment we’ve created just for those in Kindergarten through Grade 5. We want elementary students to know three things: that they need to make the wise choice, that they can trust God no matter what, and that they should treat others the way they want to be treated.
UpStreet is an engaging time for students to learn how to study the Bible, to worship through singing, and to build quality friendships with other kids and adult leaders. It consists of both a large-group energetic worship experience and small-group time. And there’s a really cool guy named “Zach-Attack” who’s about to make a comeback!
Have your kids check it out this Sunday!
