Growth Groups


Growth Groups are a great way to connect with God and the community at The Bridge beyond our weekend services. Growth Groups are also the primary means of discipleship at The Bridge. They are small groups that meet weekly for a semester. 

Growth groups are great for adults and college students. 


As of 3-18-20, most of our Growth Groups are meeting virtually.

    BEGINS 2/11

    Facilitators:  Grant & Fern Brown

    Location:  The Brown Home

    Maximum of 8 adults + facilitators


    We'll be reading and discussing the book DEVOTIONAL DOCTRINE by Aaron Armstrong. It’s an easy read with a lot of depth. It covers Revelation; natural, written and personal. The nature of God, His work in creation, our fallen state, God's wise and righteous plan of redemption.  We'll learn about the church, the return of Christ and the restoration of all things. The goal will be not simply to know Doctrine but to find Joy in God as we learn more about Him and his plan for his creation. This will require personal preparation through study and meditation on scripture passages each week. We want to learn in order to love Him more.

  • GROWTH GROUP #3 (men)

    no more excuses: be the man god made you to be - tony evans (DVD/study guide)

    BEGINS 2/11

    Facilitators:  Rudy Carlson & Jerry Cellan

    Location:  The Cellan home

    Maximum of 10 men + facilitators


    Sometimes circumstances in life make it difficult for men to be all God wants them to be.  But Tony Evans urges men to stop looking at their circumstances as excuses and instead to see them as challenges and opportunities for success.  Exploring the examples of men of God throughout the Bible, this study will challenge you to lay down your excuses, stop compromising, and fight to be a man of character and commitment.  Despite your setbacks, failures, and pressures, you can still find purpose, meaning, and direction in life and become the man God has called you to be.

This study was piloted by the Elders & Wives in the 2018 GG Fall Semester.

    Facilitators:  Georgine Rundle & Sue Cellan

    Location:  The Cellan Home

    Maximum of 10 women + facilitators


    CALLED. LOVED. KEPT. God has commanded His beloved church to do the necessary work of contending for the faith in a world of unbelief, and as we do, He will keep us from falling into the same deception. Dive into themes of being called, loved, and kept, and learn how to point others to Jesus in grace and truth.  We serve others well when we share the whole gospel with them, not just the parts deemed attractive by our culture. In this Bible study, we will recognize God’s Word as an anchor in the ever- shifting cultural climate, discover our God-given identity in a world of deception, and see how this small, obscure book in Scripture still speaks to the church today.
