Church is more than Sunday morning services. It’s about connecting with others with personal, shared experiences, and finding authenticity and transparency in God-honoring relationships. There are over 200 ministries at Bridgeway, far more than what one could expect to involve oneself. Listed below are some of the major ministries in which an adult could participate.
Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be men of courage; be strong. Do everything in love.
1 Corinthians 16:13-14
Our Men’s Ministry is a great place to get connected with other men! Men engage in Bible studies, small and large group fellowships, prayer and fasting retreats, community outreach efforts, and other relationship-building activities such as camping, bowling, and white-water rafting. Throughout the ministry year, the Men’s Ministry conducts regular events, such as Men’s Breakfasts, Service Projects, Fellowship Gatherings, Life Groups, Prayer, Bible Study, and Men’s Care. The Men’s Ministry seeks to build, strengthen and empower men to live the life that Christ desires. This ministry equips men to lead their families, strengthen and enjoy their marriages, provide accountability to each other, identify serving opportunities in the church, and grow in their commitment to living Christ-Centered lives.
For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.
Our Women’s Ministry at Bridgeway works toward helping empower women to engage in their God-given purpose. Women support other women spiritually, emotionally, and educationally by pairing opportunities for spiritual growth and fellowship. Our desire is that every woman live lives that represent God, in truth and love. Bridgeway’s Women’s Ministry is uniquely positioned to create a diverse, supportive community that honors race, culture, and different needs each woman experiences through life.
Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God.
1 John 4:7
This is not your ordinary marriage ministry for people that just want to survive in marriage. Ignite is designed to build into marriages and give members the tools to make their marriages all that God intends, in a fun, casual, Biblical environment. If you’re currently married, planning on getting married, or want to rekindle a hurting marriage, you must be ignited. Ignite love. Ignite passion. Ignite desire. Ignite oneness. Ignite laughter. Ignite has planned activities throughout the year that provide shepherding, fellowship, Biblical teaching, and ongoing accountability in order to strengthen marriages, for every stage of marriage.
