Bridge Students Ministry is for students in grades 5-12 and exists to see students transformed by the Gospel, integrated into the local church, and impacting their world for Him. We strive to see that everything we do is biblically rooted, relationally focused, God-glorifying, and absolutely super fun!
Students meet at The Bridge Church building every Sunday night from 6pm-7:30pm. On these nights, students will typically have some time to build community and then break out into their small group. A fews times throughout the year, they will take a break from small groups and enjoy a Big Gathering where all of our students and leaders have fun and fellowship together. We will also encourage students to be an active contributor to the whole church by participating in worship gatherings, and joining a Sunday serve team.
Bridge Students is an extension of our church, and we encourage all our students to attend our Worship Gatherings on Sundays.
Students gather weekly in small groups, separated by grade and gender, where their leaders facilitate teaching, discipleship, and community. Typically, the groups study a book of the Bible and are encouraged to grow in studying the Word.
Big Gatherings happen throughout the year and are events where all our students come together for community, fun, and to hear a word from one of our pastors. On these nights, we don't break out into small groups!
We have background checked, Jesus-loving volunteers that are committed to leading our students. Any small group leader has been trained, and they are covenant members of our church.
In a small group, our students work through the Gospel Project Students curriculum. This takes them through the entire Bible in chronological order every 3 years.
They should bring their Bible!
How exciting! Baptism is the biblical way to publicly express you believe Jesus has done everything necessary for your salvation. We celebrate the public profession of faith through baptism because it exalts Jesus and the power of the Gospel to save. To prepare for baptism, here are a few things to do:
Encourage your kids to write down their personal testimony, including:
Why they needed to be saved
When they told you (or you affirmed) they believed in Jesus
What difference the Gospel makes in their lives
We believe it’s best for students to begin engaging in community groups to help build deeper discipleship and relationships. They are a valuable part of our church now, so we encourage them to worship and serve with the whole church on Sunday mornings.
