Hey there! Glad to have you checking out our page. Look around see what’s happening in the youth ministry and what might grab your attention. No matter what your background, we hope you feel comfortable being a part of what many teenagers, just like you, have already found: purpose in Jesus. Wherever you are spiritually, we invite you to come and meet some new friends and have a blast doing it.
Perhaps you know very little about this religion thing and have lots of questions. Maybe you have grown up in the church and are ready to take your walk with God to the next level. Regardless, we have some events, meetings, and activities where you can develop friendships and your faith. We look forward to seeing you at one of the regular meetings mentioned below.
Middle School and High School students meet at the same time where we talk about subjects current and relevant to the life of a teenager. We play games to get to know one another, we have worship, we spend time in both large and small groups and we pray for one another. All of this takes place in the very comfortable and relaxing atmosphere. In addition to our scheduled service times, we do all kinds of awesome events and activities. Things like bonfires, bowling, sledding, mini-golf, Super Bowl parties, go-karting, and scavenger hunts are just some of the fun events where you can have a blast, meet new people, and invite your friends to come along. Summer Camp offers extended opportunities for getting to know one another and yourself.
This is when you can participate in service projects to give you a better understanding of the needs here at theBridge and around the world. These events also provide you with an avenue to contribute to serving those needs. Out heart is to give students the opportunity to identify their gifts, grow in their understanding of those gifts, and then to use those gifts to serve those around them both inside and outside of the church.
- Loved: by Him! Love is the core of who we are because love is the core of who Jesus is. It is important to know that we are loved and who loves us. Because we know this we are called to love others.
- Free: through Him! We are empowered through the freedom we find in Jesus Christ. We are free from fear, worry, doubt, and anxiety, to live out, courageously and outrageously, what God has called us to.
- Found: in Him. Because we are Loved by Him, and Free through Him, we know who we are! We are Found! We belong! We want students to recognize that their identity is found in Jesus Christ, when lost they can be found by Christ and be a part of His family, as a son or daughter of God. We too are a family, all parts of one body working together for the good of our community.
We want to see our students Thrive in life! We find true life in Jesus Christ. Our mission is to help students grow in a relationship with Jesus Christ. Our goal is that our students live out the love and freedom found in a relationship with Jesus Christ to others. We engage our students with relevance and belonging and equip them to put down deep roots in their faith. Every student is loved, every student belongs, every student is celebrated!
We want to invite you to consider joining us in this walk of faith and discover the role God has planned for you in His Kingdom!
