HERE AT THE BRIDGE, OUR MISSION IS TO MAKE DISCIPLES OF JESUS CHRIST THAT CELEBRATE THE GOSPEL IN WORSHIP, APPLY THE GOSPEL IN COMMUNITY, AND EXTEND THE GOSPEL IN MISSION.

We believe in the engagement of local missions, to meet the real and substantial needs of individuals and families within our community, and connect them to the message of the gospel through the impact of it being lived out in application. We celebrate the opportunity to love and serve others and to see the gospel extended in word and deed. 

How to engage

Make time to familiarize yourself with each partner's website. Read about their stories and opportunities for becoming engaged.
Mark your calendar for the Bridge's yearly engagement rhythms with each mission partner
Mobilize your small group, family, or group of individuals to serve with the ongoing weekly/monthly opportunities. 
We are here to help! Contact Tiffany Dixon at missions@bridgefellowship.net if you would like assistance in scheduling your family, small group, or group of individuals for an onsite service day and for any questions about how to better engage with our local missions.

Vision + Mission: Vault Fostering Community exists to equip and provide resources to foster families as they meet the immediate needs of vulnerable children in our community. 

NOVEMBER 5TH, 12TH, + 19TH | CHURCHWIDE OPPORTUNITY

Single parents are often overlooked during the holidays, while they keep the focus on making Christmas special for their children, they won’t have gifts from a partner on Christmas morning. This Christmas, Vault wants to acknowledge SINGLE FOSTER PARENTS who have stepped into the foster care world all alone. The holidays can be isolating for anyone, but when you are walking out this very hard calling on your own, it can be extremely lonely and discouraging. Let’s make sure these individuals, who have chosen to dive into this world of foster care without a partner, don’t wake up to an empty stocking on Christmas morning. This small gesture will go a long way!

HOW YOU CAN HELP

1) CHOOSE A STOCKING AT CHURCH

2) FILL THE STOCKING!
We are aking that the value of items be around $40. There is a list of suggested items in the stocking you choose.

3) RETURN THE STOCKING AT CHURCH BY NOVEMBER 19TH
