Lead Pastor @ The Bridge

Come As You Are!

Jesus told us there are two great commandments - to love God with all our heart, soul, mind and strength ... and to love others.

When you walk into a typical Sunday morning gathering you’ll feel what is important to us:   (1) loving God in heart-felt worship, and (2) being brothers and sisters!  

We love Jesus, and we’ve embraced His mission.   We want to do what He did - to see people healed in spirit, body, mind, and emotions.   We want His “heart” - to reach out to people who are handcuffed to their past, and walk them through to what Jesus promised could be ours: 

Forgiveness & Freedom!

We do not judge; we welcome ALL.   Come be our guest, experience the loving atmosphere, hear the Word of God, worship Him with us, and connect.   We’re building a bridge, not a wall.    Worship will begin at 10:30 AM, but folks come around 10 to eat, drink, and engage. 

You will be welcome!

Note:  We’ve encountered some problems with our Online Giving html.  

Please be patient with us as we work out the kinks in our system.  

Our goal is to make online giving safe and secure.
