Connect Groups

At The Bridge we view Connect Groups as the heartbeat of the church. Connect Groups are where you see real life transformation, where you build community with those around you, where you share & struggle through the ups & downs of life. Do you want to see spiritual growth in your own life? Do you want to see how Christ can move in what may seem like an unchangeable situation? Join a connect group, dive in, be vulnerable and see what God has lined up for you.

  • Christian - It's not what you think

    Join pastor Andy Stanley as he examines the characteristics Jesus used to define those who follow him and the implications they have for believers today.


    In Christian, you’ll learn:

    What one word should be descriptive of every Christian

    How Jesus’ followers should treat those who are outside the faith

    Why people love Jesus but can’t stand his followers

    What does is mean to be Christian? Curiously, the term is never used in Scripture. Instead, Christian was a label used by outsiders to define Jesus’ followers. Jesus referenced ‘disciple’ as the key word he used to describe his supporters along with the fact that they would be known for their love – a novel concept for their time – and ours today.


    Through eight engaging and enlightening sessions, Andy Stanley unpacks these qualities Jesus prescribes for his followers that made them unique. What if believers today embodied these traits? Would the non-believing world put aside its definition of ‘Christian’ and instead know us by our love?

  • The Gospel of Mark - Men's Group

    The Gospel of Mark chronicles Jesus’s journey from Galilee to Jerusalem. Along the way, the Messiah gathers a ragged band of disciples. As crowds grow and dwindle on the road to Jerusalem, only a few stick by the Suffering Savior on the road of discipleship.


    In this 11-part series on the Gospel of Mark, author and speaker Francis Chan invites us to walk with him along the ancient ways of the Master. Tracing the steps of Jesus and the Twelve through Israel, Francis explores the major themes of the Gospel of Mark, and asks: Are we willing to take this journey to embrace discipleship?
