We know it can be a little intimidating to visit a new church, so we've done our best to remove any obstacles to you enjoying your time with us. You'll see it in our casual dress, friendly greeters, and practical teaching style.

Still, you might have questions about what to expect, so here’s what you will notice when you visit with us.


Expect great hospitality and service

When you arrive at The Bridge you can expect to be greeted by genuinely friendly and loving people with warm hearts to make you feel welcome and at home. Our team of greeters are ready to help you with whatever you may need while you are here.


And if that isn’t enough, just stop by the “Coffee Connection Café” table where you can get free freshly brewed coffee. There you could meet new friends and pick up a little more info about us.   

(“Coffee Connection Café” table start serving @ 10:00 AM) 


What to wear?

The answer: anything you want. Some people come dressed in jeans and t-shirts while others come dressed business casual. We do promote modesty, but we won't turn anyone away. If you want to come in jeans and t-shirt or all decked out, go ahead and do you.

We want you to feel comfortable and free while we experience worshipping God together.


What's the atmosphere like?

Casual environment. Serious faith.

You will see inviting, smiling, and friendly faces that are happy to be here and glad that you came.

You will hear laughter, see joy and faith, and experience inspiring worship music and receive a relevant life-changing message.

You will feel peace, love, comfort, and the freedom to relax and engage however you like.

What's the service like?

Service begins at 10:30AM and usually last about 1 hr and 10 munites, give or take 10 miniutes.

No rushing and no dragging it out.

  • The Music: It all starts with a dynamic, energetic, and passionate time of contemporary praise and worship music. Our music style is designed to be a fun, exciting, and an inspiring experience for all who attend to worship God. The words of the songs are shown on a large screen so everyone can follow along.

We try to do a variety of music styles because our goal is to minister to today’s culture from the child all the way up. This ain't your grand-mama's church, but you can bring her and we would like to think that she will enjoy it.  Our goal is for our worship to transcend age, sex, and race.

Regardless of your background or where you are on your spiritual journey in life, you can engage and connect with God on a personal level here at The Bridge.

  • The Message: Relevant. Life-giving. Life-changing.

You will hear a life-transforming message, making the Bible easy to understand and apply to your everyday life. It will be culturally relevant as well as biblically sound.

The messages will be funny, sobering, eye-opening, spiritually educational, and definitely life-changing. You will be challenged and inspired to be all that God wants you to be.

One thing's for sure: you will not be bored.


What about the children?

Children are a high priority here at The Bridge. We have taken great care in creating a children’s program that is age-appropriate, fun, and safe for children from birth to 5th Grade.

If you have children, we offer the opportunity to give them their own experience at The Bridge. Our nursery, preschool and children's ministry are well-staffed and equipped to care for your children while you attend the service.

We work hard at providing our young ones with a safe, clean, and enjoyable environment.

We want to teach them about God’s love in fun, exciting, and creative ways.

We want them to love coming to church and love learning about God.
