|What to expect on your first visit|
At Bridges, we feel it is our responsibility to “clear the way” for you to come to church. We want you to be able to experience some great music, an encouraging message, and friendly people all in a comfortable atmosphere. And we know that your first time at a church, any church, brings up some questions. Here's what you can expect when you come to Bridges.
Come as you are! Comfortable jeans or casual wear, it really doesn’t matter. We’re more interested in connecting with your real life needs than what you wear.
A warm greeting
When you make your way into the building our goal is to make sure the first face you see at Bridges has a smile on it! Whether you are looking for the worship gathering, kids area, a cup of coffee, or the bathroom, a Bridges greeter will point you in the right direction.
Age appropriate opportunities for children
We know when parents bring kids to church they want their children to be safe, have a great experience, and learn about Jesus Christ. That’s what we want for your children too. At Bridges children begin their morning in the worship service with you. Crayons and coloring sheets are available near the sound board. When the music stops and the announcements begin the children move to their rooms. Feel free to walk your child to his/her room. Feel free to come a little early to check out our children’s rooms. If you’d like more information about the children’s programs check out the children’s page.
Plenty of space
Our ushers will welcome you into the worship center (Lecture Hall) and hand you a program. Then, you’re free to find a seat and give the Bridges a test drive—sit back, relax, and enjoy the worship gathering! No one will corner you. You won’t be asked to stand up and introduce yourself. Our goal is to be friendly, warm, and available for whatever you need, without being overbearing. When the offering time comes, please know you are under no obligation to give. We really mean that! The offering is for those who call Bridges home.
A casual and relevant worship experience
At Bridges we look for innovative ways to engage with the message of Jesus Christ. We use language and music that makes sense today. The message, music, stories, video clips, and more are designed to draw God’s message from the pages of the Bible and connect it with life today in real and relevant ways. Communicating God’s message deserves nothing less and neither do you.
