The Preteen ministry, The Bridge, exists to connect 5th and 6th graders to Christ and each other while encouraging them to begin taking their faith to a more personal level. We believe this is the perfect time in their lives to become more serious about what a relationship with God looks like and it is our goal to lead them there. Our ministry is designed for
5th and 6th graders to have a fun, energetic space where they will be loved and invested in, as well as challenged with applicable, engaging and relevant teaching.
While we experience Church at Home, please know that our Midweek teaching videos are available on our media page.

What to Expect?
At our weekend services, 5th and 6th graders can expect to be welcomed into a fun and energetic environment fit for their stage of life. There will be live worship and a 20-minute sermon, following the sermon series that the rest of the church is going through. These messages will be geared toward the 5th and 6th grade age group and will speak to what they are going through in their lives. We then will move into classrooms, split between boys and girls, and have small group discussion time led by our dedicated volunteers.
When you join us for the first time, please stop by our visitor’s desk. We will have you fill out a quick form about your family and then check your child in. Our staff and volunteers will then escort you to The Bridge room. Please allow a few extra minutes on your first visit.
Safety is a number one priority when your child is in our care so that you can enjoy the service without worry. Our computerized check-in and paging systems save time, increase classroom security, and provide easy accessibility to families attending our church. Also, each of our loving volunteers goes through background screening, reference checks, and training to make sure each person that interacts with our children is able to do so.
