Greetings Bridge Families!
Bridge Kids is for Infants - 5th Grade. We meet on Sunday Mornings at 10:16 during the worship service. Our mission is To Know, To Grow, To Serve. We want to connect kids with God and show them God’s love for them. We want to help them Grow in relationships with one another through our small group discussions and Grow in their personal walks with God. We also want to connect them with the world and ways that they can Serve. We follow the Orange curriculum which helps us to learn about who God is in a fun and active way. There are lots of events you can join us in annually such as our Halloween Hoot, Christmas Party, Daughters of The King Daddy Daughter Dance, Sons of the King Mother Son Event, Summer Camps, and VBS. We would love to have you join us as we learn about God and have tons of fun along the way!
We are thrilled to see our Bridge Kids in person and we’re excited that we will continue to be able to connect with all our Bridge Kids online. The Bridge Kids Area is open for newborns through 5th grade. We encourage parents to pre-register their child(ren) to receive a fast pass to class for Bridge Kids Sunday morning worship experience.
We always welcome children in family worship and we will still continue to have Bridge Kids videos, activities, and resources available online for anyone who needs them. You can access those on our website and Facebook. We are so excited to have launched private Facebooks groups (Bridge Kids & Bridge Kids: First Look) to not only share the resources mentioned above but to also be able to share photos of the fun that Bridge Kids and their families are having in the church building and at home.
Our children’s ministry team will continue working hard to prepare a safe, fun, and engaging place for children to come and learn about God’s amazing true story.

How can you help?
Throughout this summer we will be collecting donations for Operation Christmas Child shoe boxes. We will have a packing party and celebrate Christmas in July. We would like donations of school supplies, hygiene products (no toothpaste), clothes, and toys that can be packed into a shoe box and shipped to children on the other side of the world that may not receive a Christmas present if it wasn't for your family's donation, time, and energy packing a shoe box. Your child(ren) can serve by picking out item(s) to put under our Christmas tree and your child(ren) can serve by packing Operation Christmas Child shoe boxes at The Bridge, July 25th at 4pm.
The Bridge uses Orange curriculum to teach our children from birth through 5th grade. Orange believes combining learning from church with learning at home will have the greatest impact on kids’ lives. Orange has a great App called Parent Cue that we encourage all of Bridge Kids parents to download and use on your own. Contact our Children’s Pastor Jessica at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or concerns while downloading and using the Parent Cue app.
Looking for resources to help you be the parent you want to be? Parent Cue’s goal is simply to cue you with what you need, when you need it. Their link below has many articles available on a variety of subjects to help you be the parent that you want to be.
