Kids Helping Kids

UpStreet kiddos are doing their part for Be Rich 2020

Box, Snack, Pack, Bring it Back!

An Opportunity for Your Kids to Give, Serve, 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: In September we will be decorating boxes in Waumba Land and UpStreet. 
(Boxes aren't going home this year)

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.

PACK: Our 4/5 graders are going to have a service project on October 10 during service to pack decorated boxes.

BRING IT BACK: Bring the snacks to church by Sunday, October 3.

What's the Word Poster

Learn UpStreet's Verse of the Month for September

Make sure your child get 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 next school year, your child can have 12 verses memorized that they will carry with them everywhere they go.

Verse stickers and posters available on UpStreet!

Kathleen Edelman's book "A Grown Up Guide to Kids' Wiring

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.
