If it's your first time at The Bridge, you are our honored guest. We do church a little differently than other places, so here are a few questions to help you plan your trip.
Where do i go & when
do i get there?
Our one-way parking lot is right out front of our building with always plenty of spots available. As you're walking to the building, our greeting team will greet you, and show you where to find the banquet room, restrooms, and children's program. People typically start showing up between 9:20 and 9:30, chat a bit and settle into a seat, service will begin shortly.
What do you do for kids?
In Bridge Kids, children 5th grade and younger experience Jesus on their level. Bridge Kids is a safe, age-appropriate environment where kids have their own service with singing, a Bible lesson, and small group time.
To ensure the safety of your child we use a check in system called Kid Check. To make your check in process go more quickly you can create a free account here. If you get stuck, no biggie, we can easily do it when you arrive on Sunday morning.
If you have a middle or high school student we collaborate with other church youth ministries.
Call, text or email the church office for details.
(805) 975-7178 firstname.lastname@example.org
how long is the service?
Services last about one hour and 30 minutes. We start by singing three to four songs. Then after a few announcements, Pastor Tim or a guest speaker preaches. If you want to hear Tim's preaching style, click on our Media tab. Download The Bridge app and click on "Message Notes" to find our Sunday morning handout that we have available every Sunday so everyone can follow along.
so where's your real building?
The Bridge is what is considered a portable church - as in, we set up & tear down each week, and all of our church stuff is packed & hauled away in our trailers. Have you ever been to a church that has a trailer ministry? Didn't think so. You'll notice once service ends our different teams jump into action and start stacking chairs, packing bins & unhooking cables, but don't worry, we're not rushing you, we always have time to chat with you.
What should i wear?
Don't feel like you have to dress up. Most people wear casual attire, but you are welcome to wear whatever makes you comfortable.
Can i attend if i'm ________?
Yes. The answer is always yes. We are a "come as you are church" so it doesn't matter what you filled in, you're welcome at The Bridge, we’ll see you on Sunday.
