9AM Nursery Announcement
Beginning Sunday, 9am nursery will extend to include 3 year olds! We are able to do this through the enthusiastic participation of our covenant partners - thank you! Pre-registration is still required (click here). We can continue the gradual reopening of nursery based on meeting weekly quotas for volunteers: please consider serving if it is a safe option for you.
New Email Platform Coming Soon!
We are transitioning from Constant Contact to Mailchimp to manage email campaigns and our contact lists will be automatically transferred to Mailchimp. If you wish to unsubscribe from the Uptown Updates email list, please do so by scrolling to the bottom of this email and clicking "Unsubscribe."
Serving with Uptown Kids
Uptown Kids is continually evaluating when it will be safe and wise to add ages and grades to our gradual reopening of nursery and children's ministry. Teachers will sign up to teach Uptown's children using the same system we've newly adopted for nursery: signing up for Sundays and eventually services that best fit your schedule! Stay tuned.
Gathering Hike on 10/24
The Gathering is planning to go hiking next Saturday, October 24. Check the Gathering Facebook page for details that will be posted soon!
Looking for Roadies & Greeters!
Two important components of in-person worship are Roadies and Greeters: Roadies set up and tear down the rented spaces each Sunday, Greeters welcome & manage a safe flow of people in the building. If it's safe for you to attend in-person worship each week, please consider serving on one of these teams! The tasks specific to these teams have changed some due to Covid protocols, but the need and impact remains.
Our 2020 Life Groups are underway and there's still time to join! Click Here for a map to see where these groups meet around the city plus their meeting schedule and leader details. Reach out to Dave Kulp with questions!
