Where Kids Learn to Know, Grow, and Follow Jesus.


Here at Upstate Kids, we believe that Sunday should be the most fun, exciting day in your child’s life! Each Sunday, your kids will engage in exciting worship, play games, meet new friends, and learn about Jesus in a way that they can understand. Our passion at Upstate Kids is to see each child come to Know, Grow, and Follow Jesus.

At Upstate Kids, we also believe that the greatest influence in the life of a child is the parent. Therefore, everything we do on Sundays, Wednesdays, and events is designed to partner with parents. For more information on how we can partner with you, check our parent resource page.

Each Sunday, your child will experience three things: Biblical teaching relevant to their developmental stage, meaningful relationships, and a safe, fun environment where they can learn how to know, grow and follow Jesus.
