Children and Youth


Bradley Memorial Untied Methodist Children and Youth Ministries is commited to being a community of belivers who surrounds our children and youth with love, counsel, and biblically sound education. Our hope is to reach the children and youth in our surrounding community along with their families.Children and youth are looking for authenticity and realness when it comes to faith and here at Bradley our focus is to show children and youth how a relationship with Jesus Christ can transform their life. In our opinion, the children and youth of today are not just our future as a community of believers, they are the church of the right now.


Christ Centered Focus

The Children and Youth at Bradley Memorial have many opportunities for fellowship, fun and learning about Jesus Christ. First and foremost we share about our Christian faith and meet children and youth where they are in their walk with Jesus Christ. Secondly, we demonstrate the love of Christ through our words, deeds and actions. Lastly we stay biblically based in all that we share during activites and events.
