MISSIONS TEAM We are a group of people who are striving to encourage, facilitate, and oversee the various missions projects supported by The Bridge congregation. Each team member serves as a direct link to one or more of our mission outreaches locally, regionally and internationally. The goal of the team is to expand and work with Impact Groups and individuals within the church body to further the Great Commission. This is done by enlisting people for short term missions and direct involvement in ongoing missional ministries. Our ultimate goal is for everyone in the body being ‘missions minded’ at some level, and encouraging our own home-grown missionaries within the Bridge!
ALL-STARS is where kids in kindergarten through fifth grade want to be every weekend! Every child is in a small group with a “coach” who cares about kids. Each week we visit Discovery Field, where we sit on the grass and listen to the awesome Bible storyteller and then rock out with the worship team. There are no tables and no chairs, because we are busy learning God’s Word. Sometimes that means we race across the room, or try to all fit into one hula hoop to prove a point. You never know what’s coming next week in ALL-STARS! Fifth grade kids even get their own space (complete with XBOX and Wii)!
SAFARI LAND is where pre-schoolers go to “explore God’s wonder” on weekends at The Bridge. Newborns and Toddlers are cared for by loving volunteers. Two, Three, Four and Five year olds learn God’s word through interactive Bible Stories and Worship. Tour Guides in Safari Land guide the kids through fun-filled activities, crafts, and snacks. Through small groups, kids learn to pray with their Guide. After coming to Safari Land, pre-schoolers will know these three basic truths: God made me, God loves me, God wants to be my friend forever.
AXIS Is our Jr. High Ministry focusing on 7th and 8th grade students and their walk with Christ. We have large group meetings on Sunday nights and small group meetings throughout the week. Special activities include monthly cook nights, car rallies, Hume Lake summer and winter camps, service projects and family events. On Sunday mornings you will find many of our AXIS members serving the church family in the children’s programs. Kids that are a part of this growing group are truly loved by the adult leaders.
NEXUS is for high school students. We believe that relationships are the key to developing a deep and lasting commitment for Jesus. For this reason we seek to be a place where teens can be connected with one another as they pursue the common goal of loving God in every part of their life. We meet every Sunday night at The Bridge for worship and teaching and just to hang out. On Wednesday nights students meet in small groups where deeper relationships are formed through discussion, accountability and prayer. There also regular special events, trips, and camps throughout the year.
MEN One of the unique aspects of our church is that we have a thriving Men's ministry. Whether you are looking for a weekly morning Bible Study, or opportunity to serve, we have a large community of men who are ABSOLUTELY ready to serve & worship God.
WOMEN Our Women's Ministry hosts many subministries designed to meet individual needs, and bring women closer to the heart of God. Whether you're looking to join MOPS or a Women's Bible Study, we are sure there is a place for you!
SMALL/IMPACT GROUPS are a central part of the ministry at The Bridge. Small Groups/Impact Groups are a place to grow deeper in your faith and find intimate fellowship with a group of fellow believers. The setting of a small group allows for questions to be asked and answers to be found. Small group is a place to find encouragement and accountability. Being part of a small group ministry also opens up opportunities to serve as our small groups are involved with a number of outreach programs in our community.
WORSHIP BAND We are always looking for individuals that have a desire to get involved and serve in this capacity. If you are interested in getting involved in worship aspects of the service, we would love to sit down and talk about where you feel the Lord is leading you. It is an exciting ministry and as churches and different ministries grow, the need in this area becomes greater!
BECOME A VOLUNTEER There are countless ways to get involved and serve the church. Whether it's greeting or helping around the office, we are always excited to meet new volunteers.
