The Underground Teen Center opened its doors in January 2022 as a program of The Bridge Church at Bear Creek. Quickly embraced by hundreds of students from Bear Creek High School, our teen center has developed programming which runs every single school day.
As a ministry of the Bridge Church at Bear Creek, we strive to make an everlasting difference in the lives of all teenagers by helping them meet their spiritual, economic, physical, and social needs. We do this by providing music, art, and vocational programs that encourage teens to develop into well-rounded adults.
