Local Tattoo Artist, Kayden Huber believes we are all better when we "do something." That's why he is taking his artistic talent and passion for learning to urban young people. Kayden wants to change the lives of middle school students, asking them to create what they believe in, and believe in what they create, at a monthly art night.
We said, "Yes! Let's do a Friendraiser!"
Uptown Church recognizes an acute need for change.
It’s our experience that people find little to no value in the church as an institution. We also believe institutions cannot love people, only people can love people. We have a hunch that happens through the rubbing of elbows, sharing of space and concern for similar values in the community. That's when we can offer the nudge, to say, “God is present in the very things valued by this community.”
We believe hosting Friendraisers for local non-profits and businesses is one of the many ways to start the conversation about the value of shared ideas, a neighborhood, and the beautiful people that constitute the Church.
Uptown Church hosts Friendraisers in partnership with Midtown Community. Midtown explains a Friendraiser like this:

Join a facilitated brainstorming and ideation exercise. Everyone has good ideas. They just need a good facilitator to bring them out!
Dress casual. Expect refreshments. And good conversation. Meet new people. Learn more about our beautiful city.
