Upcoming Events:
Back to School Sunday!
We will have a special moment at all of our worship services for a “Blessing of the Backpacks” for all children and youth!  Children will meet their teachers at Sunday School on the Main Campus!
At worship we will celebrate children beginning Kindergarten with special gifts, and we will also recognize our 3rd graders by presenting them with their very own Bible!
Register for Camp Bible!
At Camp Bible, children will play, sing, and worship our God who knows and loves them so incredibly much!  This year’s theme is “Reunion.” At Camp Bible children will learn about how we are all connected as family, friends, and people of God!  For children entering 3rd grade, this is a great opportunity to get a taste of what Summer Camp is like at Camp Bridgeport!  We hope you’ll join us for Camp Bible!
