Kids

At Bridgetown, we love kids. We want to provide a fun and safe environment for kids to learn about Jesus. We want our classrooms to be marked by learning and laughter. We want our events to be full of energy and excitement. We want our parents to be well equipped and supported. We want our kids to encounter Jesus and become his disciples. Because that’s what it’s all about. If you are interested in learning more about Bridgetown Kids, someone from our kids staff would love to chat with you.

Become a Kids Leader

Bridgetown Kids is fueled by the efforts of our amazing volunteer leaders and we are always looking to grow our team!

Events

  • PDX Casino Night for Embrace Oregon

    PDX Casino Night exists to support Embrace Oregon, an organization for vulnerable children and families. Our goal is to give eight visitation rooms at the midtown DHS office a complete makeover; where children can visit loved ones, parents can learn parenting skills, and foster and adoptive families can meet with children. Wear your cocktail attire, enter the auction and raffle, and enjoy hors d’oeuvres.

    Dates: Sat, June 2

    Cost: $95

    Time: 6 – 10 PM

    Location: Portland Art Museum

     

  • Kids Pizza Party

    We want to reward our kids for modeling character traits of Jesus in our time with them on Sundays. Rather than rewarding individuals for individual behavior, we reward the entire class for good classroom behavior! Once a quarter we have a party with our Kids Leaders where we watch a movie, eat pizza and ice cream, and play games! These events are free and will hopefully provide time for you and your spouse to get dinner or enjoy quiet time at home! These events are open to all kids in Grades K – 5.

    Dates: June 8

    Time: 6:30 – 9 PM

    Location: Bridgetown Office
