Change Your World

At The Bridge, we don't believe in just sitting around being "Christian consumers."  Jesus commanded us to "GO into all the world..." and while we may not be able to get to every single person in the world, there are plenty of people in our own neighborhood that may not have met Jesus.  And what better introduction than serving in the community?  After all, it's like Jesus said, "When you did it to one of the least of these my brothers and sisters, you were doing it to me!"

Here are some ways to get involved and #ChangeYourWorld!
