Middle School Mornings

For Who? 5th-8th grade students
When? Every Sunday morning, 8:45am, 10:00am, 11:15am

Middle School Mornings are for middle schoolers... and it's in the mornings. Mornings at The Bridge exist to transition students successfully into student ministry. We want them to have personal encounters with God, moving them from “mom and dad’s faith” to something that is their own. We want our students to know and fully follow Jesus! Expect snacks, high energy games, crazy stories, relevant messages, and small group discussions led by our adult dream team.

*High school students are encouraged to sit in Sunday morning worship with their parents and friends*

High School Nights

For Who? 9th-12th grade students
When? Every Sunday Night, 6:00-8:00pm

We hear you!! We know you don't just want to be preached at anymore. You want to make a difference. You want to add to the conversation. You want to do something about you faith. You want to GO. This awesome community is going to be designed for just that. What happens at High School Nights will depend on the week of the month.

Weeks 1/3 -- Small Group Sundays
Week 2 -- High School Nights: Off Site
Week 4 -- Sunday Night Live (worship night)
Week 5 -- Serve Sunday

We'll see you at 6pm this Sunday!"

Parent Involvement

Your greatest impact on your student is your ongoing love and support for them. We believe that parents play a crucial role in helping their students get involved in student ministry. We know that your calendar is very full. We know you already spend lots of time in your car going to and from school. We believe that your student is at a critical age where their values are being shaped and influential relationships are being formed. It is imperative that God be a part of this pivotal season. Here are three practical ways you can be involved in your student’s spiritual growth and church life:

  • Encourage consistent attendance and therefore encourage spiritual growth
  • Offer to bring your student’s friends so they feel confident walking in
  • Follow up church events with spiritual conversations to help them grow deeper
  • You have what it takes to spiritually lead your students. We’re here to help you along the way. Need more information? Email hello@theriver.cc
