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.
Kids Sunday Gathering
Bridgetown Kids is for Ages 0 – Grade 5. We meet Sundays, 10 AM, at Old Laurelhurst Church on the Eastside and 5 PM at First Baptist Church on the Westside. We want to provide a fun and safe place for kids to learn about Jesus. Kids drop-off begins at 15 minutes before the gathering. Parking at First Baptist Church for families with kids is provided at SW 12th & Salmon St. and is offered for free with a Family Parking Pass. To receive a Family Parking Pass please speak to a kids worker.
We keep Bridgetown Kids organized and secure by using an online registration tool called KidCheck for drop-off and pick-up. Registration on KidCheck is safe, secure, and free and it only takes a few minutes.
Bridgetown Kids uses a curriculum called Trû to guide the discussion and experience in our Age 3 – Grade 5 classrooms. For more information on what it looks like in different classes, please select the classroom you are interested in to read the “How it Works” document.
We strive to be a place where all kids learn about and encounter Jesus. If you have a child with special needs, we want you to feel comfortable checking your child in to Bridgetown Kids, and know that we strive to have your child with us for the whole gathering, giving you a couple hours of rest to sit in the gathering, uninterrupted! We have multiple sensory items available to help your child if they are easily overstimulated and we also have a number of volunteers who are professional Speech Language Pathologists, Occupational Therapists, Behavioral Therapists, and teachers, all of whom are available to be a one-on-one with your child to make sure they have a fun time learning about Jesus with their peers. If you have any questions, we would love to hear from you.
