The Bridge

Meets in Children’s Pavilion Rooms 201, 202, 204 and Fellowship Hall

We meet weekly on Wednesday afternoons from 4:00 – 5:30 PM as part of our MERGE program

“Regular” The Bridge meetings are roughly divided into three 30 minute segments:

  1. 30 minutes for fellowship/community building, music, announcements, etc.
  2. 30 minutes for Bible study and small group discussion/follow up
  3. 30 minutes for games and fun!

All 4th-12 graders are invited to hang out at church each Wednesday night from 3-9 PM for MERGE.  The Bridge will meet from 4-5:30 PM. The rest of the time is filled with homework, dinner, and free choice activities. Dinner is served at 5:45 PM.  Choir for 4th-6th meets from 6:30-7:30 PM.  Simultaneous programs are offered for 7th-12th graders in the youth area.

Merge is being offered for free to all students, and friends are encouraged to attend. We are requesting donations to help cover the cost of dinner, snacks, supplies and hourly staff.  To contribute, please visit this link.  For questions or more info please contact


WHY do a 4th-6th grade ministry?

We do this because children who are becoming adolescents need help and guidance.  Most are at a different level physically, spiritually, emotionally and maturity-wise than 8th grade students, for example, while also desiring to no longer be associated with “the little kids” (i.e. 3rd grade and below).  They are beginning to push at boundaries and see what gives and what doesn’t.  They are beginning to ask tough questions.  We believe a safe place is needed for all of this.  Our desire is that this ministry will provide that safe place for students while also offering parents help and support during this crazy season of life as well!
