CONNECT • GROW • SERVE

We believe that community is essential for abundant living within our church walls as well as in the world around us. All of our groups for adults create space to:

Connect with others

Grow in our faith journeys

Serve alongside one another

All visitors, guests, and members are encouraged to check out our opportunities to Connect, Grow, and Serve in the church and community around us.


CONNECT & GROW

We have several ways  to connect with others and grow in your faith based on different interests and life seasons. We have large Connect Groups for senior adults (Pillars), young adults (Branches) and smaller Connect Groups like book clubs,  small groups, and topical support groups. Groups offer the opportunity to meet new people in the church and community, while having a chance to explore topics of faith and life in safe and friendly settings.

SERVE

A great way to connect with others at MDRC at The Bridge, is serving others by using our passions and talents on Sunday mornings, during the week, and for special events as they arise. Serve Groups also offer a chance to connect with other volunteers who share similar interests, as well as the members who attend our church and events.
