Young Family Ministry

Our Young Family Ministry serves as a group at BUMC for families who have children ranging in age from birth through 5th grade. Our events are comprised of a mix of fellowship, service and spiritual opportunities. This group, and its events, allows families with young children to deepen their relationships with God so that they may become more fully involved in BUMC and the body of Christ.

You don’t have to be a member of the congregation to participate and our activities are a welcoming and relaxed place to try out a small group at the church. Come grow with us!

All activities occur at church (651 Country Club Road, Bridgewater, NJ) unless otherwise noted.  Events are open to ages infant to 5th grade.  For more information about any of these events, please contact

On Going Activities: 

Worship Sermon Time Activity – Every Sunday during the 10:30 AM Service

Don’t forget to sign up to assist with the kids sermon time activity, which takes place during the 10:30 worship service each week. We want to make sure that we continue to offer this great opportunity for our kids (and our adults). Moms, dads, youth, and all other congregation members are welcome to sign up for this fun job. I will do all of the planning and preparations, and you would get to hang out with the kids and help with the activity as an extra pair of hands.

VBS Decorating Day – Sunday, August 4th following the 10:30 service

We are looking for volunteers to transform our sanctuary and hallways so that they are ready for the children when they arrive on Monday morning.  A pizza lunch will be provided to our volunteers! Please RSVP to so that I know how much pizza to order.  We are also looking for items to enhance the environment of this year’s Vacation Bible School.  Our theme is Rolling River Rampage and we are in search of items such as small tents, camping chairs, fishing poles, artificial Christmas trees, kayaks, oars, tubes, camping lanterns, etc.  Items will be needed from August 4th-11th.  Please let m know if you have anything that we could borrow for the week. 


Playdate at Children’s Corner Playground (BUMC) – Wednesday, August 20th at 10:00 AM

Pack a lunch and join us for some fun in the sun (hopefully).  It will be a great opportunity for the children to have fun together.  Don’t forget to bring water bottles and sunscreen!
