Bridgeport is a missional, empowered evangelical church in the heart of Kansas City. Our greatest desire is to inspire love for Jesus and love for one another through the spiritual journey of discipleship.

Bridgeport meets Sundays at 10:00 AM at 3101 Gillham Plaza, Kansas City, Missouri.

We are connected relationally with numerous churches in the Kansas City region and operate with a senior pastor-led team of elders, trustees, and staff.

KINGDOM KIDS

DISCOVERING THE WONDERFUL REALITY OF GOD'S KINGDOM

Kingdom Kids partners with families to offer a safe, loving environment for children to have fun while developing a relationship with God, discovering their own God-given uniqueness and spreading God's love.

OVERVIEW

Children's ministry is available for kids from age 1 (and walking) to 5th grade and runs the entire church service.  Elementary-age children are welcome to worship with their parents and come to Kingdom Kids at the break or go directly to class when church begins and worship with their peers.  For those interested, an offering basket is available in the classes for children 4 years old to 5th grade, and all offerings are donated to the local school Bridgeport supports, Attucks Elementary School.

CURRICULUM

Elementary-age children are taught three basic truths: I need to make the wise choice, I can trust God no matter what and I should treat others the way I want to be treated.  The curriculum provokes discovery and invites kids to a new understanding of how to grow in relationship with Jesus.  

CLASSES

Toddler Class
1 (and walking) to 2 ½ years old

Parents of toddlers can expect a fun, safe place for their little one while they enjoy the service. The toddler lesson includes a Bible story, song and Bible verse that all reinforce a monthly theme.  This class is perfect for teachers who love to sing, dance and hold adorable babies.

 Preschool Class
2 ½ to 4 years old

Our curriculum utilizes a “hands on” model of child education through interactive songs, Bible stories, crafts and games.  Every activity is designed to let preschoolers learn about God in a fun, engaging way.  Teachers who are cheerful, playful and gentle best suit this age group. 

Pre-Kindergarten Class
4 years old to kindergarten

This class builds on the activities in the preschool class to make it engaging for our kids approaching kindergarten.  They have a small group time to discuss the Bible story and pray.  Enthusiastic teachers who enjoy interactive games and making crafts are a good fit for the preschool class.  

Lower Elementary Class
Kindergarten to 1st grade

Children in grade school have their own worship time in Kingdom Kids.  They participate in activities, skits and small group discussions about core Biblical truths and how they relate to their lives. The curriculum is designed to root them in the truths of the Kingdom.  Teachers in the lower elementary class have fun playing games and worshipping the Lord and have the privilege to go deeper in the Lord with their students. 

Upper Elementary Class
2nd to 5th grade

In addition to the lower elementary activities, our upper elementary class takes students deeper into God's Word through reading, small-group discussions and memorization.  Their lessons are tailored to help them develop life-application strategies for everyday issues they face.  Upper elementary teachers should have a good foundation in scripture and be a strong, engaging leader. 

Getting Involved

Bridgeport’s children’s ministry is run by an extraordinary team of volunteers from the Bridgeport body. We would love for you to join in this powerful ministry, and there are a variety of ways to serve.  We have training and materials to equip volunteers with any range of experience and use a team teaching model, which helps new volunteers acclimate to their class.  We provide detailed lessons and prepare the materials each week, so teachers have a clear guideline and structure for the class.

If you have any questions, please contact Grace Davis, Children's Ministry Coordinator at grace@bridgeportchurch.org.  If you're ready to be a part of this life-changing ministry, please fill out this form below and someone will contact you.
