The Bridge Ministry

4th and 5th Graders

The Bridge Ministry is for 4th and 5th graders. It bridges the gap for children too old for children's programs and too young for our youth group. They learn good manners, choices, and behaviors through service and discipleship.
They have fun activities and services projects throughout the year. Parents must agree to have their students attend children's church, Sunday school, or Wednesday night kids club. Mentors and adult disciple-makers walk alongside the young people to their next life stage during each of these programs.
