Welcome to 252 Basics! 252 Basics curriculum is designed to provoke discovery and invite kids into a new understanding of how to grow in relationship with Jesus. We teach three basic, but powerful, truths modeled by Jesus in Luke 2:52.
During UpStreet, kids will enjoy small and large group environments. Small groups start with an Opener and end with a Closer in their individual graded rooms. Kids will join all grades for large group which provides a dynamic and interactive Bible story and prayer experience.
KidStuf family experience allows kids to worship on their level. Our goal is to encourage kids to listen to God’s words (HEAR), help them to dialogue with God (Pray), articulate their faith (TALK), and worship with their lives (LIVE). Parents Are Allowed! They will meet our great cast of characters with Gordo, Grandpa Henry, Mrs. F, and many more, experience The Word where God’s Word comes to life, learn life applications known as LifeApps, GetReel video segment, and worship through music.
Welcome to First Look! From birth through PreK, through age appropriate activities, preschoolers are building their spiritual foundation so that by the time they graduate to Kindergarten they know these three basic truths:
Toddler and Preschool curriculum provides monthly activities for purposeful play. During our Worship Care hour, they will hear a Bible story, do crafts, and learn new songs each week.
Parents will receive a monthly Parent Cue as well as a weekly Cue handed out during First Look or Worship Care. These provide ideas for Play Time, Drive Time, Bath Time, Cuddle Time and Morning Time that connect what preschoolers are learning at church with what they’re hearing at home.

Upward Sports athletes experience the 360 Progression, which is a uniquely designed sports experience that develops the total athlete mentally, athletically, spiritually, and socially. It is modeled in Luke 2:52 – “And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man.” The 360 Progression helps young athletes discover and develop the skills they need to perform both on and off the field or court. It also creates individuals of strong character, confidence, and faith.
The mission of the Upward program is to promote Discovery of Jesus Through Sports. Find out more about Upward by visiting upward.org. Contact Arlene Byler for more information.

Help Kids Discover The Invisible Wonders of God
Turn your kids into Galactic Starveyors! As kids focus their telescopes on the marvels painted in the sky by the Creator, they will discover the wonder among all wonders – that the God who created everything there is – the knowable and the unknowable, the visible and the invisible – wants a personal relationship with them! Invite your kids into the clubhouse and show them the God who is over the moon in love with them.
