Children’s Ministry

Mission

The goal of Great Bridge United Methodist Church’s Children’s Ministry is to develop your child’s personal knowledge and love of Jesus Christ through learning, worship, fellowship, and service; to encourage them to be guided by God’s love and teachings in their everyday lives; to lead them to seek God’s will for their lives, to minister to others in Christ’s name and to bind them to the community of faith.

“Let the children come to me…”
 Matthew 19:14
 
 
 
All students are encouraged to attend worship with their families prior to Sunday School. During the service, children will be invited to “Children’s Time” to hear a word from the Pastor.  Following “Children’s Time” they will be escorted by Sunday School teachers to their appropriate classroom.
 
 
We Prioritize Safety!
 
Families must check in students at a Check-In Kiosk outside of the Sanctuary or in the Children’s Wing. 
 
 
Upon sign in, students and parents will receive a matching identification sticker that children will wear during Sunday School.  For student safety, all students must be picked up by an adult who holds the matching identification sticker.
