What is bridgeKIDS?
bridgeKIDS is the children's ministry of the Bridge church for children between birth and Grade 5.
God loves the kids of the Bridge. He loves the kids in Abbotsford, Mission and the rest of the world too! Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them. The Kingdom of Heaven belongs to such as these." Our role in bridgeKIDS is to put children in the Way of Jesus and let Him do the transformation and formation in them. We do our part and He can be trusted to do His.
Our vision is to see many, many children who at the moment don't know Jesus come and meet Him as there are children all around us who need to know their heavenly Father loves them.
Our hope is to disciple children who are in love with Jesus and worship Him with all their heart, soul, mind and strength and want to serve Him and follow Him their whole lives as they learn to love others and be kind to those around them.
We place a high value on parents leading their kids and seek to equip them and help them live out authentic faith in front of their children.
Our aim as a team in bridgeKIDS is to be contact providers not content providers. We want to be present with the children and make relationships with them. We want to be an additional loving adult working in a supporting role alongside parents. When we work together, church and parents, we can have a greater impact on our kids than we can alone and it is also way more fun!
