Bridge Kids

Jesus loves the little children, and so does everyone in Bridge Kids! It is our greatest desire that each child have the opportunity to connect with Jesus each week, whether it's being loved on in the nursery or being taught in a class. Each of our classes is designed to help meet your child's developmental, emotional, and spiritual needs. Bridge Kids is an EXCITING place to learn more about God, His Word, and His Son.




Curriculum

For Bridge Kids who are pre-school through 5th grade, we use Hands-on Bible© curriculum.  This curriculum teaches with real-world objects to engage students just like Jesus did.  These lessons help children understand, love and remember God’s word while applying it to their lives.  All of the curriculum is designed to connect kids with each lesson and naturally lead them to experience God’s word in unforgettable ways.  Kids stay attentive during Bridge Kids through active learning such as upbeat music, unique games, interactive stories and engaging crafts all while learning Bible stories and hearing about what Jesus did for them.



Classrooms

Nursery

Our nursery is designed for children birth to 18 months (or confidently walking). It is set up to meet the individual needs of your baby. We have a safe, developmentally appropriate environment for your baby to be nurtured while you are in church. 



Walkers

Our walkers classroom is for children ages 18 months (or confidently walking) to 3 years old. This room is filled with fun, age-appropriate toys such as books, puzzles, cars, dolls, and blocks. It is a great opportunity for your toddler to explore, learn, and make friends. 



Preschool

Our preschool classroom is designed for 3 and 4 year old children. Our classroom is set up to allow your preschooler many tangible ways to learn about Jesus and interact with peers-all while having a ton of fun. Each week's preschool lesson uses hands-on activities, music, and games to help your preschooler learn the Bible Lesson, Bible Point, and Bible Verse for that week. 



Kindergarten through 2nd Grade

Our K2 classroom is designed for children Kindergarten through 2nd grade. This class is highly interactive with activities such as games and crafts to reinforce the Bible Lesson, Bible Point, and Bible Verse. 



3rd through 5th Grade

Our 3-5 classroom is designed for children in the 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades. This class is similar to the K2 classroom with highly interactive activities to help your child learn the week's Bible Lesson, Bible Point, and Bible Verse-but the curriculum is geared toward 3-5 grade children and helps older children take their next steps in their relationship with Jesus.
