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 bumcyoungfamilyministry@gmail.com.

On Going Activities: 

Sunday School – Every Sunday during the 9:00 AM Service

The children who attend the 9AM Traditional service will be escorted to their classrooms following the Children’s Message. Families that attend the 10:30 AM Contemporary service you are welcome to drop off your children in their classroom at 9:15 and attend the 10:30 service as a family after Sunday School. There is adult Sunday School in Room 25, and you are welcome to join us while your children are in Sunday School. Please pick your children up in their classrooms at the conclusion of the service.  Enrollment is ongoing and your children are welcome to join us at any time.

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.
