Worship & Arts
Worship is an important function of The Bridge. Sandy leads our worship with songs that lean modern, but add in many of your old favorites. We seek to express our love for God through expressions of Celebration, Inspiration, and Preparation. At The Bridge you experience singing, praying, giving, meditating, commitment challenges, hearing the Word, Baptisms and Communion, and a number of other practices.
Groupcare is the adult small group ministry of The Bridge Fellowship that seeks to foster significant Christ-centered relationships. It consists of small groups that gather for community/fellowship, biblical text/curriculum, accountability, and training for service. We believe that significant life change can happen in small groups. It is in these groups that the real issues of life are discussed. It is in these groups that real life is lived out. In these groups we can celebrate the great times and help each other through the rough times. Groupcare is a place to be encouraged, equipped, and challenged to become a complete and competent follower of Jesus Christ.
Our ministry geared towards children is called BridgeKids. We offer a nursery for infants – age 2. BridgeKids takes place during worship to allow parents to focus on worship. This is a new concept and we hope to see fruits of it soon.
Students who call The Bridge home are asked to get involved in everything we do. They give their time and are always inviting everyone they know to our weekend services. Students are making a difference in the city. Right now they are on the front lines reaching the communities they live in. We believe this present generation of students have the potential to be used by God in a way that surpasses every other generation in history.
On Wednesdays nights at 6:30 pm during the school year and all year on Sundays at 9:15 Am, we meet and are challenged in many different ways. First of all, we are challenged to love God with everything we have and reach others around them by our actions. Secondly, we are encouraged to pray and read our Bibles on an everyday basis. Lastly, get involved in what our church is doing.
Iron Sharpens Iron
This is a gathering of men and sons seeking to be men of faith living out our conviction of loving God, loving each other, and serving the world. Our theme verse for this group is Proverbs 27:17: “As Iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another”.
Bridgekids Learning Center
The mission of this group is seeking to inspire students to develop habits and skills that will lead to improved school work and scores that ultimately lead students to become all they are meant to be. We believe that this can be done in a spiritually, emotionally, and physically safe environment in partnership with schools and the community. (Currently on hold)
This is a once a month collection by our elementary kids during worship that raises funds for missions. Our recent funds went towards a mission trip to Peru for two of our graduates.
Sunday's Intercessory Prayer Group
This is a gathering of people that meet on Wednesday and Sunday mornings that believes in the power of God to work in the 21st century amongst a people that are loving Him, and serving him through our love for each other and those that don’t yet know Him.
