We're Back!
Uptown Kids is thrilled to offer a graduated, limited,
in-person nursery.
We will be opening on Sunday, October 4 for babies from 6 weeks through 2 years. For now, the 9:00 service only. Please see our guidelines, safety protocols and registration information.

All subject to change, as is the new normal these days.

We are watching government and health recommendations daily.
Please consider volunteering to help.
We won't have a nursery without covenant partners serving the body. Each week the number of children we allow will depend on number of volunteers!
This Month in
Uptown Kids Ministry:

Check out our new website!

In addition to a fabulous new church website, the
Uptown Kids page is brand new!

All our resources. In one place.

There are links to Sunday school videos,
activity sheets, and crafts on the site for you to access.

We are so excited!

Parents! Kids!

Bring your Uptown Kids drawstring bags if you're coming to church these days. Bring your Bible, a notebook, or a coloring book... maybe some Lego figures?

And each week we have these --> green bags in the narthex with a coloring page, some crayons, maybe something else to keep you a little busy.

We're so happy to worship with you. If you're at home, check out the kids' worship guide, too!
Happy Birthday
Let's celebrate all the birthdays this month!

October Prayer Calendar

Our team has put together a monthly Prayer Calendar.
There is great blessing and unity in bringing our needs
and requests to our Father. Together.

Print it out, put it on your fridge or mirror, and pray with us for our children, our city, and the world.

Cafe still open!
Even with our limited nursery opening, we will still provide the cafe space with live streaming/video feed if that's more to your comfort level... Or if the nursery we are able to provide fills up and you still would like a place where your little ones can move a bit more, make a bit more noise.
Please continue to adhere to social distancing in this space.
Things we've been loving
One of my favorite Christian authors said this: "Biographies have shaped my Christian walk more than any other genre. To read stories of faith lived out in the midst of life’s difficulties and struggles always inspires and encourages me."

Everyone a Child Should Know, with a different historical person highlighted each week of the year, introduces children to the lives of missionaries, martyrs, writers, reformers, politicians and poets.

Comes highly recommended by a wise mama I know.
What a privilege to walk through life's challenges with our kids. The pandemic has reminded us all that this world is not our home, and there are very real things that can produce anxiety in our lives.

From the publisher's description, Zoe's Hiding Place "invites children to remember that the Lord is near when they are anxious."
He is indeed.

Also includes tear-off "back pocket verses" (maybe for us, too?)
