Bridge Kids

Our goal is to create a fun and exciting place where kids will learn how to be passionate in their relationship with Christ and learn how to share that faith with others.

BRIDGE KIDS SUMMER BOOKLETS​

A self-guided, interactive 36-page workbook that will encourage your child to grow up and be like Jesus. Want to see a sample? Click HERE!

What's For Dinner?

A family devotion, packed with simple tips, lots of cheesy jokes, riddles for all ages, questions that will spark meaningful conversations, prayers especially for these troubling times, and devotions that will turn your hearts toward God’s truth, giving parent’s the tools needed to disciple their children around their dining room tables.

BRIDGE KIDS SUNDAY MORNINGS

Children’s programs available at both 9:00 am and 10:45 am

Nursery – 2 years​

We believe even even our youngest kids can be discipled and learn about a loving relationship with Jesus. Our trained volunteers patiently serve our babies in a safe and loving environment.

2’s & 3’s

Our toddler ages will enjoy learning through free-play, worship, Bible lessons, and age-appropriate crafts. Our dedicated teachers and volunteers work hard to model patience and Christ-like love to each child. This age will also receive a toddler-friendly snack, such as goldfish crackers and water (Gluten-free options are available).

Preschool – Kindergarten

Our preschool and Kindergarten kids will enjoy playing and learning in an engaging, age-appropriate room. We start our morning with free-play, then move on to worship, followed by a focused Bible lesson. Our craft time will reinforce and remind the kids what they learned during the lesson and our snack is child-friendly with gluten and dairy-free options.

1st-5th Grade (9:15 am)

Our elementary aged kids start off in our Launch Pad with fun activities to help them start thinking about the upcoming lesson. They will then move onto Worship and offering, followed by an Object Lesson to introduce their lesson. Our grades will then separate for age appropriate lessons and discussions, 1st-2nd grade in one class, and 3rd-5th grade in another.

1st-5th Grade (10:45 am)

Our elementary aged kids will head directly to their classrooms for age-appropriate and in-depth Sunday School Classes using the Generations of Grace curriculum. Kids will be challenged by our dedicated teachers, as they study the Old Testament and New Testament.
