Welcome to The Bridge!
We're glad you're here!
We gather every Sunday at 10 AM for our weekly worship service. All are welcome to attend, and we would love for you to join us.
During most of the year, we get together during the week in Community Groups throughout Alton and Godfrey as well. Click here for more details on those.
Sunday Worship Gatherings
When & Where
Every week we gather to pray the Gospel, sing the Gospel, preach the Gospel, and respond to the Gospel. Gospel means "good news" and we herald the good news of great joy that Jesus came to make all things new. We seek to make much of Jesus, the One who built the most significant bridge, so we could know God. As of now, we gather once each weekend: Sundays at 10 AM.
What to Expect
We know attending a new church for the first time can be overwhelming. We want you to feel at home at The Bridge, so here is what to expect on a typical Sunday...
The morning begins with a time of conversation over donuts and coffee. This is a great time to connect with others at The Bridge, or you're welcome to make your way to your seat in the sanctuary. After a quick welcome from Steven Helfrich, we raise our voices to God through the singing of songs led by our worship team. Both adults and children participate in worship and the reading of Scripture. When prompted, children (birth through 5th grade) and teachers walk to another part of the building for Children's Church. We pray for these children as they go, continue in worship, and Pastor Steven shares a message from God's Word. After this, we pray again and share in a final song that reinforces our focus on Jesus. We end the gathering with prayer and a short benediction that reminds us who we serve and our call to make much of Jesus.
Every third Sunday, we take Communion together as a part of our worship service.
We usually wrap up around 11:30 am. Dress is casual. Come as you are, and we pray you'll be challenged, encouraged, and see Jesus lifted up.
Parking is available on all of the streets surrounding The Bridge: E. 12th, Langdon, Henry, E. 13th, and the side streets. There are handicapped spots available near the front left entrance.
If you have children (birth through 5th grade), you have the option to register them for Children's Church when you arrive. They are invited to join our nursery workers and teachers in another part of the church midway through the time of worship. For more information on Bridge Kids, click here.
If you have questions when you arrive, look for those with Bridge name tags. These are our friendly volunteers ready to welcome you and answer any questions you might have. In addition, there are two tables in the lobby called "Being The Bridge." Here, you can find additional information about a community group near you, resources on how to take the next step in your journey of faith, and opportunities to serve with The Bridge and our ministry partners.
Hope to see you soon!
