Mega Awesome Costume Party

Bring your kids dressed in their favorite, not-so-scary costumes and join us Sunday, October 31, for a Mega Awesome Costume Party!

Box, Snack, Pack, Bring it Back!

An Opportunity for Your Kids to GIVE, SERVE, and LOVE

Plan a family night to talk about how to see the needs of others and how your family can work together to help.

BOX: Grab a box in UpStreet on Sunday, September 19. Have a family conversation about how sometimes families don’t have all the things they need and ask your child what are some ways they can help others at school.

SNACK: Talk to your kids about how some of the students at their school might not have a daily snack. Then ask them to think about how they would feel if they didn’t have a snack to eat at snack time. Take your child to the store with you and let them help you choose their favorites snacks to fill the box.

PACK: Fill the box snacks. (Please be mindful of expiration dates and no nuts or candy.)

BRING IT BACK: Return the box to church by Sunday, October 3.

What’s the Word Poster

Learn UpStreet’s Verse of the Month for October

Make sure your child gets this month’s verse sticker for UpStreet’s What’s the Word verse poster. This poster is a fun, engaging way your child can keep God’s wisdom in front of them all year long.

Don’t have a poster? Your child can get their poster on UpStreet. Then hang it in their room or another place in your house where your family can encourage one another to learn these verses together. Each month, your child will get a new verse sticker that helps complete the poster over the next 12 months.

By the beginning of the next school year, your child can have 12 verses memorized that they will carry with them everywhere they go.

Verse stickers and posters are available on UpStreet!

A Grown-Up’s Guide to Kids’ Wiring

Make sense of the kids around you.

No matter the age or stage, kids are… hard.

But understanding their wiring might change the way you look at (and speak to) every child that crosses your path from this day forward.

Communication expert Kathleen Edelman has spent three decades helping grown-ups make sense of the kid around them. The result? Better behavior; better relationships. In this book and the six videos that go along with it, she’ll do the same thing for you and the kids in your family, in your classroom, or on your team.
