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, college students, and high school students.

    We desperately want our children to have deep faith and a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. We want to arrive safely home in heaven together with our children. But what can a parent do when an adult child turns away from God?  Writing with compassion and honesty, author and pastor Rob Rienow shares a powerful, biblical message of hope: It is never too late for God to use a parent to point an adult child's heart toward God.

    All day, every day, an invisible war rages around you — unseen, unheard, yet felt throughout every aspect of your life. A devoted, devilish enemy seeks to wreak havoc on everything that matters to you: your heart, your mind, your marriage, your children, your relationships, your resilience, your dreams, your destiny. But his battle plan depends on catching you unaware and unarmed. If you're tired of being pushed around and caught with your guard down, this study is for you.  Be dressed in the Armor of God and discover the divine strategy that God has given us to take into the fight!  This study has a small amount of daily homework most weeks.
