+ Sunday Morning Small Groups

Do you know who the two biggest influences are in a child’s life? The answer is…. the church and the family. Our goal here in Bridge Kids is to partner with families to make the biggest impact possible in a child’s faith journey. The church only has 40 Sunday’s in a year to minister to kids. Parents have 3,000. Let us help you start to build this foundation, after all, who says church should only happen on Sunday? And who says you can’t have FUN at church every week? Not us!

We offer FUN and ENGAGING ways to learn about Jesus!

+ Nursery Care at 9 & 10:30 a.m.

The Bridge Kids Nursery provides a safe and loving place for your children to be loved, rocked, played with and cared for while their parents attend worship services. Parents receive pagers that vibrate if they are called back to check on their children or if the nursery workers should have any questions. Two paid staff workers are assigned into each nursery room. Church security procedures ensure proper background checks are performed on all paid staff workers in Bridge Kids Children's Nursery. For more information, contact Jill Dyer, jill@mysumc.org, Coordinator of Nursery.

Creation Station is 30 minutes of crafts, fellowship with peers, and organized games. On the 2nd and 4th Sundays, there will be a full hour of music and drama with Tracy Lastrapes and Danielle Lois for all those who are interested from 11 a.m.-12 p.m. At this time, the children will learn music to sing in worship, participate in creative drama games and skits that teach Biblical values, and learn how to use their gifts to serve God during worship services and Children's church.
