Mission Statement


Help children connect with God and develop into fully devoted followers of Christ.



What to Expect


When you enter on Sunday morning, you can register your children for Bridge Kids at the registration area, next to the far stairwell. For your family's security, we utilize a check-in system. Each child receives a name tag which corresponds to the parent's ID number which is presented when picking up the child/ren after the service. Our Registration Attendant is available to assist you in this process and gladly welcome your child!

Nursery: Babies 6 weeks- Children age 3: Parents are welcomed to walk their children to the nursery and pick them up following the service.


Bridge Kids: Children Grades PreK-5: Children remain with parents for the first portion of the service, and will be dismissed to Bridge Kids just before the sermon.  Following a short lesson introduction as a whole group, Bridge Kids will split into their age-appropriate classes for the remainder of the service.  Present your family ID number when picking up your children, and our volunteers will release your PreK-5th grade children.



Our Curriculum


Bridge Kids uses weekly lessons from Grow Kids- a curriculum strategically developed to meet children at their unique developmental levels and engage them with truth from Scripture in ways that grows their relationship with God.

All age levels learn the same weekly Big Idea, and a share a time of singing and working on a series memory verse before splitting into age groups. 

Classrooms

Nursery & Walkers


Our nursery and walker's room is designed for children birth to 3 years. It is set up to meet the individual needs of your baby or toddler. We have a safe, developmentally appropriate environment for your child to be nurtured while you are in church. 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 or baby 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, Big Idea, and Bible verse for that week/month. 




Kindergarten through 2nd Grade

Our K-2 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, Big Idea, 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 K-2 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.
