What to Expect
After checking your child in, they will join you in the main service for worship. They will be dismissed to join us in Bridge Kids for learning God’s word through engaging Bible stories, interactive activities and friendship building games. We invite your child to experience God in a whole new way.
What should I bring?
Bible – Elementary kids should bring their own Bibles each week. We encourage them to look up verses and highlight verses that are important to them. Please make sure your child’s name is inside their Bible. We provide all registered kids with an Orange tote bag to carry their Bible highlighter and any take home pages.
Offering – All kids have the opportunity to change the world through giving. Kids can bring their “change” (quarters, nickels, dimes, pennies) and put it in the Plinko containers during their Big Group time. Monies collected are sent to various missionaries that The Bridge Church supports around the world.
What about food in the classroom?
Please be sure your children eat at home and don’t bring food to the classroom. If your child has allergies and cannot have goldfish or animal crackers, we will exchange a substitute snack you may want to provide.
We ask that you do not bring cake or donuts to celebrate your child’s birthday or other special occasions as there are many children with allergies that cannot eat these foods.
Occasionally our curriculum may include making a snack to reinforce the Bible truth the children are learning. We will post Allergy Alert signs whenever we serve anything beyond goldfish or animal crackers.
When is my child transitioned to the next age level?
Grade 5 students will transition to Youth Ministry in mid-June (when school lets out).
Kindergarten-Grade 4 will transition later in the summer.
What materials are sent home?
Monthly we mail out the Parent Cue to you. These pages will give you age appropriate activities to do with your child. These activities will help you introduce your child to God’s love.
We also mail out God Time (devotionals) Sheets to your child each month with that month’s theme, verse, and activities. This is a valuable tool for you as a parent. Please read them over and discuss the materials with your child during the week. Every time you talk about the Bible truths learned in class, your child will be confirming God’s Word and at the same time establishing that you as a parent think the bible truths are important.
Curriculum We use the 252 Kids curriculum for K-Grade 5. YOU CAN CHECK IT OUT HERE
