Here is how your family can GIVE SERVE LOVE

Snack, Pack, Bring It Back!

We want every kid to know that God loves them and we do too. One simple way we can help is by providing snacks for kids in need.

So take your kids to fill a Give Serve Love shopping bag. It’s as easy as “Snack, Pack, Bring It Back!” 


Buy snack packs of healthy snacks. Let your kids help choose their favorite snacks for the bag. Please no nuts or candy and keep snack packs in their original packaging so schools can see the expiration dates on the boxes.


Fill your Give Serve Love bag with the snacks.


Return the bag to church by Sunday, October 1.

Give Serve Love bags are available on UpStreet.

Suggested snacks to pack:

  • Applesauce pouches
  • Baked chips
  • Fruit cups in water (not syrup)
  • Granola bars
  • Popcorn
  • Protein bars
  • Raisins
  • Veggie Straws
  • Whole grain snacks (pretzels, crackers)
UpStreet's Verse Cling

UpStreet's Verse Cling

Learn it, Lock it, Live it.

Learning a verse together as a family can be a powerful thing. You’re the most important person in their lives. So if you make learning God’s Word a big deal, they won’t ever forget it! 

LEARN IT: Put this cling (arrow to the cling) somewhere your family will see it every day. (Refrigerator, window, backdoor, mirror)

LOCK IT: Test your skills at stoplights! Every time the light turns red, have everyone in the 🚙 try to say the verse from memory.  Hurry before the🚦turns green! 

LIVE IT: Help your kids learn that if they want to be trusted with the big stuff, God says it starts with giving 💯 percent to the little stuff. So do your best each day!
