May Newsletter

The Bridge is a ministry designed for "preteens" (5th & 6th grade).

The purpose is to provide an environment where 5th and 6th graders are challenged to grow and develop at a level more suited to their maturity. We work to provide events that are not only customized just for them, but events that also help them transition into the Student Ministry.


Connect Group
Connect Groups are the heart of Ridgecrest Baptist Church, and the same is true for the Bridge Ministry. The Bridge Connect Group meets at 9:30am on Sunday mornings in room #109. This time is designed for preteens to connect with each other, and God, through Bible study, fellowship, and prayer.

On Sundays, our Bridge students attend the 10:45am Exalt worship service as a group.

AWANA meets every Wednesday at 6:30pm during the traditional Durham School Year and is a chance for preteens to grow in their knowledge of God and His Word. Bridge students spend the first 30 minutes reciting Scripture from their AWANA handbook. At 7pm, they transition into Challenge Time, which is an exciting and upbeat time of worship that includes pledges, music, games, and a message from God's Word. We hope you will join us on Wednesday nights from 6:30pm to 8!



Fall Retreat
The Bridge Fall Retreat is an in-town, weekend retreat where preteens will participate in worship, Bible study, service, and fellowship! Our theme this year is "Different" and is based off 1 Peter 2:9-10.
