We want our children to become lifelong worshippers of Jesus!

Children learn to know and show the love of Jesus through our Faith Kidz Sunday morning worship and other enrichment programs. Our children's ministry covers birth-6th grade. 

Faith Kidz Sunday Mornings

We can't wait to have your children join us on Sunday mornings!

We encourage everyone to start checking in their children 15 minutes prior to services. This helps our teachers get the kids settled, and will give you a little time to visit with friends (or meet some new friends!) in the lobby before going into Sunday worship.

Upward is an evangelistic sports ministry for boys and girls that promotes salvation, character, and self-esteem in every child. Watch our highlight video to get a flavor of the fun and energy of Upward Basketball and Cheer!

Faith Community is excited to be part of the Upward Church partnership that offers basketball (ages K-9th grade) and cheerleading (ages K-4th grade). We look forward to sharing the love of God with Upward families as we host weekly cheer practices during the season, plus Saturday game days in January and February. Sign up at www.cincyupward.org.

Opportunities to Serve

Making Jesus Known through Upward 

The Upward Basketball and Cheer program allows us to welcome the community into our church, pray throughout the season, and talk about Jesus every chance we get!  

Faith Community is excited to be part of the Upward partnership again this year, and to be able to touch hundreds of kids and families each week in January and February as we host weekly cheer practices and basketball games. If you wish to take part in this exciting ministry, there are many ways to serve in our Saturday game-day operations.
