Our goal for the Bridge Youth program is to create a community within a community.
We are a laid back group that fosters a family environment where relationships can be built, and sometimes even mended.
We share the same foundational mission, vision, and values of the Bridge Community Church. In addition to those, we focus on The Great Commission: disciples making disciples. Our ultimate goal is to teach the ways of Jesus, so that we can all learn to live in the way of Jesus. Each week our team pours into our students, nurturing meaningful relationships, and mentoring in life and faith.
The Bridge services begin at 10:30 AM and we break out into our youth group right after worship every Sunday morning—excluding the last Sunday of the month and holidays. A calendar is passed out to all students, as well as shared via Instagram and Facebook.

What to Expect
We start with a prayer and then play a game to break the ice. Sometimes the game correlates with our lesson or we just do it to get blood flowing and to wake everyone up! The game is so important, because it allows us to be free and create relationships with one another. We then have a Scriptural lesson, followed by Small Groups. Small groups are also so important to this ministry, because this is where the real work happens. Our teens are able to share their true selves and it's where so much relationship building occurs. In our small groups, we discuss questions pertaining to the lesson, as well as do a check in called “Highs, Lows, and Buffalos” where we share a high (Praise), a low (Prayer), and a buffalo (Something weird, funny, random) from our week. We then ask and answer the question “How did you experience God this week?” Finally, we end with prayer.
We would love for you to join us.
Bridge Youth is available to any (pre)teen in 5th grade through their Senior Year. We are all combined and learn and play together, and then we split up into smaller groups including middle school, high school girls, and high school boys.
