Opportunities for Children and Teens
From weekend worship to weeknight fun, we offer a variety of ways for young people to
grow closer to God and each other through study, service and social activities.
BridgeKids Sunday School
BridgeKids Sunday School for kids 2nd-6th grade takes place during both worship services (9 and 10:30 a.m.) each week. Children start out in worship with their families and then go to their classes after Children's Time. Families stay together for the entire worship service on Communion Sundays, the first Sunday of each month. Contact Corina Atherton, director of children & family ministries, if you worship online and would like resources to have Sunday School with your kids at home.
Infants & children are always welcome in worship! However, we know that it might be easier for parents, grandparents, guardians and caregivers of young kids to have a safe, fun place just for kids during worship. Our nursery is available every Sunday morning for children 6 months old through 1st grade. Contact Corina Atherton for more information.
WonderKids Tutoring Program
WonderKids is a free literacy tutoring program, available to any students, kindergarten through 6th grade. Through partnerships with local schools, this program provides both reading help and lasting relationships with children and families throughout the Milford community. WonderKids meets every Wednesday that school is in session from 3:30 to 5:45 p.m. at the church. Contact Corina Atherton for enrollment info or to volunteer!
The Next Chapter Youth Group
The Next Chapter youth group offers middle school and high school students a variety of fun, engaging opportunities to learn and serve the church and the community. New programs are initiated throughout the year in response to the needs and desires of our youth.
