During each service on Sunday morning, children ages 5-11 participate in the worship time in the main service and are then dismissed from the service to go to Children’s Church, held in our Youth Room. The Children’s Church ministry team guides the children as they work in teams, look up Scriptures, play games, pray together, and grow in knowledge and reverence of the Lord.
“As we study the Bible lessons each week, the children are led in a discussion of how to apply what they are learning to their lives,” explains Pastor Chris Kreunen, who co-leads this ministry with his wife Beth. “We continually encourage them to put the Word of God into action.”
The current teaching resources come from LIVE Curriculum, which emphasizes student participation as they learn about who God is, what He does, and how He speaks to us every day. Regardless of the week’s topic, expresses Pastor Chris, “our guiding theme is Holy Spirit, who gives us the power and direction we need for victory each day.”
If you have a child in elementary school and would like more information on Children’s Church, please leave a message for Pastor Chris by calling or emailing our church office.
Pastor Chris and Beth Kreunen have five children and are both teachers with Anne Arundel County Schools. During over two decades of ministry, both Pastor Chris and Beth have served the church in a variety of ministry positions.
About Bridge Church, Pastor Chris shares, “We came to Bridge Church, then Church at the Mall, in search of a place of healing and restoration. We found a family of caring believers led by a pastor who models a life of prayer and victory. We are honored to serve the families and visitors of Bridge Church as we worship the Lord together.”
