Three Primary Ways to Connect

The reality is, we don't all get involved in a church the same way, or on the same timeline as everybody else.  We hope the Sunday morning worship service helps you grow in your faith and connect with God at a deeper level (you can "listen in" to our Sunday morning teaching by clicking HERE).  We also hope you are challenged to think about your next step toward following Jesus.  Though there are other ways to connect, the three primary next steps are: 


            1.  Joining a Small Group

            2.  Serving at Church or in the Community

            3.  Roots: our one-on-one discipleship course


If you have been attending our church and want more information about us, please attend one of our "Starting Point" classes (held 4-5 times a year right after 2nd service, we will provide lunch.)  If you have already attended the "Starting Point" class you may fill out the next steps form so we can guide to toward being plugged in at The Bridge Community.

Small Groups

The early church met together in large groups, but the New Testament also shows the church meeting together in homes in smaller groups (Acts 2:46).  Our goal for small groups is to help people find Jesus and follow Him more fully by forming small group connections that help people grow upward in intimacy with God and outward in community.  Our Small groups serve to connect individuals with 8-10 others in a predictable environment that fosters spiritual growth and healthy relationships.  


There are new groups forming.  Click HERE if you are interested in joining a small group.

Roots

Roots is our one-on-one discipleship curriculum.  The goal of Roots is to help people find Jesus and follow him fully by immersing individuals in a one-on-one learning environment where they are given training in important practices, core beliefs, and essential wisdom for living.   After walking through the Roots lessons, the believer is equipped to lead others through the discipleship process, thereby living out the Great Commission of making disciples (Matthew 28:19-20), and the Apostle Paul's vision for leadership growth (2 Timothy 2:2).  You can take a look at the first lesson of our Roots course HERE

Service

We challenge those who call The Bridge Community their home church to serve in the community and at church.  We help point people toward service both individually, and as small groups, and we'd love to help you find a place to get involved and serve here at church.  If you'd like to serve at The Bridge Community you can fill out our Volunteer Information Form. Below are several ways to serve our church community:  

Greeter/Usher

Serving as a Greeter or Usher is a great way to help our church keep its warm and inviting vibe.  If you are an outgoing person, serving as a greeter or usher might be a great fit.  

Hospitality

We hope to continue for The Bridge Community to be a warm and inviting place to connect with God, and our hospitality team serves the church body by creating and maintaining that inviting environment.

Children's Volunteer

There are a variety of ways a person can serve our children here at the Bridge.  From assisting with Check-in, to helping with crafts and classroom management, to teaching a class, there are a variety of ways you can be involved.  Most roles within children's ministry require a background check, and you can let us know how often you are willing to serve. You can let us know your serving preferences and availability by clicking HERE.

Worship and Tech Team

We are blessed to have many talented people that serve our church family with their musical gifts.  We are always open to new gifts being utilized for worship, but even if you don't have a musical gift, you can still serve on the worship/tech team by being willing to be trained to operate our sound board, or to be part of our set up crew.
