Our goal is for every Junior High School student to understand these 3 key truths:

  • See God for who He is
  • See themselves the way God sees them
  • Loves others the way God loves them

The Bridge is where students can connect with their peers from schools all over the Fresno area. We believe that relationships with others are a key to growing spiritually. Jesus came to bring true life; life that’s greater than anything we’ve ever known. We are all on the journey to find that life and to live it to the fullest. We do this through LifeGroups, weekly worship experiences, service projects, camps, mission trips, and many many, wildly fun events.

As a church, we recognize how hard the junior high years can be...

We understand that these are the years in a student's development where they begin to seek more peer connection and less parent input. Although it feels like your junior higher doesn’t listen and isn’t concerned with what you say, believe me when I tell you, “You still are their biggest influencer.” This is why it is vitally important that your home and the church unite and do these years together, because we believe two intentionally combined influences are better than just two influences.

Our goal is to provide a strategic and intentional plan for the church to maximize their influence, steering your student to connect with Jesus authentically, challenging them to grow in relationships with both God and others, exposing them to loving others the way God loves them through selfless serving, and gaining a heart to reach their campus (the mission-field where God has placed them) with the life-changing reality of Jesus Christ.

Let’s partner together to guide this next generation to discover and follow Jesus. We're excited for what God has in store for this ministry, for you, and your family.

STUDENT LIFEGROUPS
Wednesdays | 6:30-8:30pm

WHAT ARE STUDENT LIFEGROUPS?

Student LifeGroups are designed to dig deeper in into the life God wants for us by studying the Bible.  Each group has 8-10 students and 1-2 adult leaders.  Guys are in guy groups and girls are in girl groups. All Student LifeGroups meet on The Bridge campus in The Attic on Wednesdays at 6:30pm and then break off into various locations on campus after welcome and games. 

WHAT HAPPENS IN A STUDENT LIFEGROUP?

  • You get to study the Bible with the same people each week.
  • You get to connect with other Junior High students on a deeper level.
  • You pray for each other
  • You get to ask questions
  • You get to know some great adult leaders
  • You get to belong
