Up Club – Grand Opening – Utica Campus

There’s absolutely no doubt that every individual created by God has a specific purpose and plan. We all face challenges and many of us find help and encouragement through the journey. There are however those who are perhaps forgotten or because of the nature of their challenges find it’s not as easy to find help or encouragement.

Up Club is an environment designed for our friends who are experiencing special needs. God loves every single child with special needs and He has a unique plan for each one. Our desire is to partner with families and kids experiencing special needs and provide an environment where the spiritual, intellectual and physical needs of these children are met.

God has a plan! And as we’ve discovered that plan is most of all a partnership. So from our team to the environments we’ve developed to serve your child and the entire family we really do believe that Up Club will be a great blessing.

Moving Up Weekend – Star Wars Costume Day

Moving Up Weekend is here.  The weekend right after school starts is when we promote our elementary age kiddo’s into there next grade appropriate small groups.  Promotion is based on a new grade.

For those in our elementary environments (5 yr. old and below) we promote to the next environment by birthday.

The only slight difference would be at the Utica Campus with the Rt. 5 environment.  When a child turns 5 they would enter Rt. 5 and stay in Rt. 5 through kindergarten.  They would leave Rt. 5 when they start the 1st grade.

As always if you have questions please do not hesitate to ask!

Pilgrim’s Progress

This fall as we are continuing to follow our Spiritual Growth Guide we will be reading Pilgrim’s Progress as a church.  We will also be taking the Fall to work through Pilgrim’s Progress on our weekends.  So we thought we would make some suggestions for some of the young readers in the church.
