Bridge desires to see each person and family integrated in Calvary life in order to build relationships, grow in their faith, and serve in the church and community.

We want everyone to feel welcome at Calvary including families whose kids and young people have disabilities. Bridge offers programming on Sundays and Wednesdays and hosts other special events throughout the year. Our volunteers are a vibrant, trained, and dedicated team of individuals committed to leaving their fingerprints on the lives of those they serve. Check out our videos and read more below to find out how you and your family can get connected!

Sensory Room
A special feature of our Quakertown campus
The Sensory Room includes a water bubble tube, fiber optic lights, trampoline, and bean bags, allowing students who may be overwhelmed by the regular classroom environment to engage in a variety of low stimulation activities. 


Respite Events 

Respite Events are designed to give parents of children ages 5-14 with disabilities a much-needed break. They are held once a month Friday nights at our Souderton campus from 6:00 to 9:00pm. 

Activities include games, crafts, songs, and snacks. Pediatric nurses are on site to handle pertinent medical issues. The Respite program is staffed by trained volunteers from Calvary Church. Class size is limited and registration is required. The cost for Respite is $15 per child.

Respite Events are scheduled for the following Friday nights:

October 20, 2017

November 17, 2017

Each family is required to have a 20 minute, 1:1 intake interview with a Bridge staff member prior to acceptance into the Respite program. Our goal is to enable every child to attend. If it is determined that we are unable to provide safe and adequate care for a child, we will need to decline acceptance.

Please note: Respite is held at the Souderton campus. 

To get the process started, please use the form below, and we will be in touch with you!
