Children's Ministry

 

Train up a child in the way he should go; and when he old, he will not depart from it - Proverbs 22:6

 

UpstreetOn UpStreet, we believe the Bible should never be boring, worship can be really loud and good leaders always care. Before kids head off to middle school, we want to make sure these three things stick…

1.  I need to make a wise choice.
2.  I can trust God no matter what.

3.  I should treat others the way I want to be treated.
 
 
The focus on UpStreet is our growth group environment.  We want kids to see how God’s word fits into their lives, to learn how to talk to God, and to build friendships that will last. That’s why it’s important to make sure your child connects with the same friends, same leader, at the same time – EVERY SUNDAY!
 

Here’s what a typical morning on UpStreet looks like.

Welcome:

Each child is greeted by their coach and growth group leader. Kids participate with their growth group in an activity meant to introduce the bottom line. The bottom line is what we want your child to remember when he or she leaves on a Sunday morning.

Small Group Environment:

After participating in Large Groups, the children transitions back to their small groups where their leaders help them understand how today’s bottom line can fit into their everyday life. Growth group leaders on UpStreet are serious about having fun with kids and passionate about teaching the TRUTH.  We want kids to see how God’s word fits into their lives, to learn how to talk to God, and to build friendships that will last.  Every Sunday they connect with the same small group of kids and the same small group leader.  That way they get connected and stay connected and have the best chance to establish a relationship that’s going to matter when they need it the most.

Large Group Environment:

Shortly after arriving, kids will transition to their large group where they hear a Bible story.  We use costumes, props, and characters from the story – anything that makes the Bible come to life. Our Children’s Ministry also schedules time each Sunday morning for children to sing as loud as they want and tell God how much they love Him.

Come—bring your child to experience the Word of God unlike any other.

INFUSE Student Ministry

 

Infuse Student MinistryMission: We exist to expose students to Christ, embrace them in love, equip them to serve and please God with their lives.

 How we do it?

The Seven Checkpoints
These are intentional systematic approaches to discipleship that focuses on the content of what is needed. The style and methodology needs to change over time but the content does not change. These seven points are the irreducible minimal of the content of discipleship in our ministry. We cover these seven points in any or all our ministry programs – every check point has a principle, a critical question. When we are ready to release youth we need to be sure that they have these principles ingrained in who they are and what they do.

 

  1. Authentic Faith
    Principle – God can be trusted.  He will do all He has promised to do
    Critical question:  Are your students trusting God with the critical areas of their Lives?
  2. Spiritual Disciplines
    Principle – When you see as God sees, you will do as God says.
    Critical question : Are your students developing a consistent devotional and prayer life?
  3. Moral Boundaries
    Principle- Purity paves the way to intimacy.
    Critical question:  Are your students establishing and maintaining godly moral boundaries?
  4. Healthy Friendship
    Principle  – Your friendships determine the direction and quality of your life.
    Critical question  Are your students establishing healthy friendships and avoiding unhealthy ones?
  5. Wise choices
    Principle –  Walk Wisely.
    Critical question: Are your students making wise choices in every area of their lives?
  6. Ultimate Authority
    Principle – Maximum freedom is found under God’s authority.
    Critical question: Are your students submitting to the authorities God has placed over them?
  7. Others first
    Principle – When you make yourself nothing you are really something.
    Critical question:  Are your students putting the needs of others ahead of their own?

Our goal is to minister in the present always thinking about the future.

The INFUSE Student Ministry meets every Sunday at 8:30am.
