18 He told his disciples, “I have been given all authority in heaven and earth.19 Therefore go and make disciples in all the nations,a]baptizing them into the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,20 and then teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you; and be sure of this—that I am with you always, even to the end of the world.”b]
Matthew 28:18-20

Accept Christ

Choosing to be a Jesus follower is a big decisions. But one of the most full-filing and amazing choices you could ever make. Did you decide to become a Jesus follower at one of our Sunday Services? We would love to know so that we can walk beside you in your new journey with Christ. Contact one of our pastors today and we would love to partner with you in your faith, and continue to provide resources and equip you.

Get Baptized

Baptism is an important step of obedience that shows others we have personally trusted Jesus for our salvation. Jesus was baptized when He was on the earth, and we do this to follow His example. When Christians are baptized, they are submerged under water to identify with the death and burial of Jesus and raised out of the water to identify with His resurrection. We believe that water baptism is a public declaration of three important things: you are a follower of Jesus Christ, you are beginning a changed life in Christ, and you are part of a new family.

Get Connected

The church goes far beyond the 4 walls on a Sunday morning. To continue the growth of your faith it is so important that you stay connected and interact with others who share the same faith you do. We encourage you to join a Life Group today. Get connected with a group that you feel you might be able to connect with others in. There are several Life Groups going on throughout the week.  Membership Classes are offered quarterly each year as needed as well as Baptism Services as requested.


There are so many ministries that are needing you! Maybe there is an area that interest you. Children’s ministries, first impressions, parking lot, cafe, music and tech ministries. There is an area for you and and area that needs you and what you have to offer. We would love to have you involved in one of our ministries here at The Bridge. If there is an area that interest you please reach out to one of our staff members and we will get you connected to the right person for that ministry.
Our small groups exist to provide a unique way for church goers to connect with each other, outside the Sunday service.  With COVID restrictions in place for our county, meeting in person is not recommended.  However, with Zoom meetings in lace, we encourage everyone to get involved in a small group online from the comfort of their own home.  Deep friendships can still develop as we learn to do life together with other believers in The Spirit!
The Hangout (Youth Group) meets virtually via Zoom every Sunday at 6:30pm.  After each meeting, a prize is personally delivered to the home of the winner of the game from that night, so be sure to join on time!  Contact Pastor Derek for the Zoom link and more info.
ZOOM Meetings:  Tuesday’s @ 6:30 PM
The women’s group is currently studying The Book of Hebrews.  Come join in and have a great time!  Even if we can’t meet in person, we can still invite women to get into the Bible together online and you will even get to learn more about one another!  Email Sharon Payan to request a Zoom Invite.
Young Adults, ages 18-30ish, meet in-person at the Ellison home every other Thursday at 7pm.  Desserts are provided.  Email Pastor Derek for address, meeting dates, and more details.
Every so often, someone asks us to give a reason for the faith we posses. Are you prepared for such an occasion? Are you ready to explain and defend what you believe about God and matters of faith? Our current study guide entitled “Reason to Believe,” by Dr. Sproul teaches us about the biblical command to always be ready to give an answer for what we believe.  

BridgeKid’s Ministries

COVID Restrictions have impacted everyone, especially the children.  You can imagine Jesus’ words to his disciples having so much more meaning today…but Jim Wise, our BridgeKids Director has faithfully planned games and Bible learning every Sunday afternoon at 4 PM for any child that can gain access to our Zoom Children’s activities.  If you would like to have your child partake in online children’s activities, please email Jim Wise and request a Zoom meeting invite.
Until the day we can return to meeting in person, check out our children’s ministry department in detail below.
Ministry to children is a priority here at The Bridge! The vision that fuels our work in Children’s Ministries grows out of Jesus’ words in Mark 10:14,
“Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them,
for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.”
In the midst of a consuming ministry to adults, Jesus regularly ministered to children. We believe the future of the church depends on effective ministry to children today. To that end, those who teach our children are committed to minister to children, by encouraging, educating, and equipping!

At The Bridge we believe childen are God’s most precious gift, and they are the future of our church and our community. Beginning at an early age, we strive to share the love of Jesus with babies and children who are placed in our care.
The Bridge’s Toddler Church program is designed to engage your 2 to 5 year old in opportunities for them to discover that God loves them. With Bible sory times, crafts, games, and other fun filled activities, toddlers will grow in their understanding that God made them and loves them as they grow physically through these discovery years.
During the elementary school years, children are able to enter a deeper, more personal walk with Jesus, and impact their world. Each week your child will engage in energetic worship and learn many Biblical truths interwoven through games and activities.
