WHAT TO EXPECT
Welcome to Upward! Thanks for checking us out. Upward is a non-denominational Christian Church. We are a community filled with real people that are focused on fulfilling the great commission by digging into discipleship and what that looks like in our everyday lives.
As you approach our building off International Way, you will pull directly into our large parking lot with plenty of space right in front of the building. Find a spot and come on in. Someone will be there to greet you, hand you a bulletin and show you around. We have snacks and coffee available every Sunday morning in our coffee house.
In total, an Upward Church service is about 60 minutes in length. Services begin with the Upward Church worship team leading the church in music. Song lyrics are displayed on screen so you can sing along and/or engage with worship, however you feel comfortable.
Each and every Sunday, we offer the opportunity to take communion together as a church family during worship.
After worship, our pastor will come and share an encouraging message about Jesus and discipleship. The messages taught will always be read directly from scripture every week and will not be topical in nature. Instead, we believe the best way to understand God's word is to read directly through a book start to finish in context and just hear what God has to reveal to us in His Word every week.
WHAT TO EXPECT FOR MY KIDS
We believe that kids should have a blast at church every single week. At Upward Kids we make this a priority. The other thing we make a priority is your children’s safety. Because of that all of our volunteers go through a background check and kids safety classes. The first time that you visit you want to leave yourself an extra 10 minutes to get signed in for the Upward Kids experience. Upward Kids is offered on Sunday services for kids ages infant through grade 5.
