Meet, share, grow
It is the goal of BridgeKids to be a place where the children learn about and experience the life-changing love of God. We work to disciple every child in becoming a life-long follower of Jesus, living into an active relationship with Jesus as their Lord, Savior and Friend. Our goal is to partner with families – offering support and resources – to help them become the main faith influencer in their child’s life. We believe every child plays an important role in the life of the church. This is why our mission is to connect every child to Jesus, each other and God’s purposes for their lives at an age- appropriate level.
What to expect
We focus on the first 2 pieces of our mission by connecting our littles to Jesus and each other. They experience this through creative play, games, snack, songs and age-appropriate Bible stories. Our goal is that they know God made me and God loves me.
We strive for every child to connect to Jesus and each other and we work to cultivate community even at a young age. We long for every child to know that BridgeKids is a fun, welcoming and safe place. Through age- appropriate Bible stories, worship, prayer, and intentional games & crafts – done within a consistent routine – our goal is that every child learns the truth that God made me and God loves me.
The mission in BridgeKids is to connect to Jesus, each other and God’s purposes for our lives. Our number one goal is that the children learn about Jesus and how to have a relationship with Him. Through listening to age- appropriate Bible stories and practicing prayer and worship our goal is that every child learns how to connect to Jesus and each other and that they grow in their God given gifts - learning how to use them for His Kingdom.
VOlunteer screening & Training
All adult and youth volunteers are carefully selected and trained by church staff to maintain the highest integrity of our program. In addition, all adult volunteers are background checked both nationally and locally and have gone through Ministry Safe (a safety system to protect children and those who serve them). We also have a no 1-on-1 policy. This means that at no time should a volunteer or staff be left alone with a child.
Drop off & pick up
Classrooms open 15 minutes prior to worship service/program times. Pick-up will begin immediately after the worship service/program ends. At Check-In, your kid will be assigned a randomized code printed on their name tag and your claim ticket. Present the claim ticket when you pick up your kid from their classroom. Kids will not be released if the code does not match.
In addition to our highly trained and loving volunteers, we have an additional Safety Team available to our Kids Ministry area and facility to maintain a fun and safe environment for all kids and participants.
