Family Ministries exists to come alongside parents/guardians in discipling their children by providing encouragement, equipping and resources and by providing age-specific classes and gatherings to children from birth through high school. Family Ministries also supports and connects the diverse spiritual family of Bridgeway though the Connected Seminars.
AGE SPECIFIC CLASSES/GATHERINGS
Age-appropriate, gospel-centered classes are offered on Sunday mornings for kids ages birth through 6th grade and Student gatherings during the week for middle and high school students ages 7th grade through 12th grade.
We believe that parents/guardians are the primary disciple-makers of their homes. Bridgeway Family Ministries partners with parents in this great endeavor by providing resources and equipping with these words in mind, “You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise” Deuteronomy 6:7.
Perhaps the greatest responsibility as parents is to disciple our children. At Bridgeway, we are guided by four plumb lines. These are neither the final word nor an exhaustive list of parenting instructions, but these four little statements help us to answer the question, “What does it mean to disciple our children?” For more info, please join us at the next First Steps Class.
1. Parents are neither saviors nor sanctifiers
2. Parenting is pastoring
3. Parenting begins with repentance
4. Parent you children to be sent, not to stay
Bridgeway is a diverse spiritual family that celebrates and recognizes the differences in gender, ethnicity, age, gifting and life stage. Each two-day seminar is designed to equip and connect the entire church to celebrate and embrace members in diverse life stages within community and life, while also encouraging and discipling individuals in each of the specific life stages. As a diverse spiritual family we are united by the gospel and connected by community.
is a ministry designed to serve families with special needs. Not only do we provide sensory safe classrooms and integration for kids and young adults with special needs, but Wonderfully Made also cares for the families of special needs individuals outside of Sunday mornings by offering connection, prayer and support as needs arise.
