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].

Come & See. Go & Do . is a three part message series where we will not only learn about what God has done for us, but we will also get to learn how we can, “Go and do likewise.” (Luke 10:37).  We will discuss how to lead well, have conversations with others about Jesus, and do our best to equip them with all they need to be a Christ follower.

Build Community

During the Bucket List Challenge, kids will be combined as one small group. 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.

Spend intentional time getting to know your new leaders! There will be a time for fun games and conversation to begin developing a great connection with their new middle school leaders.

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.
