Adult Discipleship Survey

As we look ahead to the next season of ministry at The Bridge, we want to be intentional in forming disciples who increasingly love God and love others well. We want to do that in ways that meet people where they are in 2022. So we’re looking for your feedback on what content and what formats can help us grow as we move forward.

Thank you for taking the time to give us input! May the Holy Spirit lead us and form us more into the likeness of Christ.

Book Club

Sunday, June 12, 11:15 AM
The Bridge

In A Radical Faith, journalist Eileen Markey tells the story of the assassination of Sister Maura Clark by government forces in El Salvador in 1980. Through careful journalism and masterful writing, Markley helps us experience the journey of this remarkable church woman. Sister Clark cared deeply about serving those otherwise forgotten. Through her story we learn about her spiritual formation as she walked alongside geopolitical forces of the 1960s and 70s, and the shifting waves of her church. Ultimately, this is a story of how love of God and neighbor can overcome fear.

Sara Anderson is leading the discussion and lunch is provided. Books are at the front entrance at the Bridge and are free. Pick up a copy of the book at the front desk during business hours, Monday-Thursday, 9:00 AM-3:00 PM and Sunday mornings.

Hospitality Project Small Groups

July (4-week) Small Groups

This summer, we want to help you get to know some of the people you worship with! One of the best ways to do that is to sign up for a 4-week small group called the Hospitality Project! Over four weeks, your facilitator will walk your group through some get-to-know-you questions ranging from “What is your favorite TV show?” to “What has been your church experience?” You’ll have the opportunity to intentionally get to know people beyond what’s possible on a Sunday morning. You’ll see options for times the groups will meet in the signup form below. Once your facilitator receives your signup information, they will contact you with more details about the location your group will meet. We hope you’ll take this opportunity to get to know your church family better!
