Children & Families

Children and Families Ministry here at Bridgewater United Methodist Church is a great place for children and their families to come together in fellowship, service, and growth in faith. Children and Families Ministry aims to serve families with children ages Infant through 4th grade (older siblings are always welcome). We have many great events throughout the year including: pool parties, potlucks, age appropriate service projects, and play dates. 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!
