Test Text. This is not an emergency.

Let the countdown to middle school BEGIN!

Each year during the UpStreet Bucket List Challenge, our 5th graders count down their final weeks in UpStreet (and elementary school) together.

Over the course of these twelve weeks, 5th graders will have the opportunity to complete an UpStreet Bucket List.
The more things they check off and accomplish off the list, the more prizes they win!  From special Sunday events,
to large group games, to parties...kids will not only have a blast, but will learn some foundational truths along the way.

For more information, please contact our Children's Director, Rachel Anderson, at [email protected].

Know Before You Go (KB4UGO) is a three-part message series designed to reinforce the importance of spiritual disciplines before entering middle school (reading the Bible, prayer, community, and serving.). There will be snacks, games, and a time of conversation.

Come & See. Go & Do. 

--Sunday, April 28th, May 5th--
Come & See. Go & Do . is a two-part message series where we unpack three questions: What is faith? What do I believe? How do I share that with others?  We will look at the life of Jesus and understand that he has invited us to "come and see," (John 1:39) then to "go and do likewise." (Luke 10:37)

Build Community

During the Bucket List Challenge, kids will be combined as one small group beginning Sunday, March 3rd. This is allow there to be connections made among all 5th graders before entering into the Student environment. So, we ask all 5th graders to attend the 11:15am service.

Student Led UpStreet Service

--Sunday, March 24th--
A NEW addition to our Bucket List this year is an UpStreet large group service led by our 5th graders! To learn the importance of leadership, humility, and depending on God in all circumstances, our kids will have the opportunity to lead segments of large group (worship, Bible story, prayer, and game time).

Test Drive

--Sunday, May 19th --
All 5th graders and parents "test drive" an
RP Student service at 11:15am. Experience
life as a middle schooler and see what a full Student service is like at this special event.
