Though each Christian has a personal relationship with God, that relationship is not individual or private. The Christian faith is not intended to be lived in isolation. We were made for community; relationship with God and with each other. The local church is not merely a place that we attend but a people to whom we belong. The Bible calls us members of the body (1 Corinthians 12:12-31) with the expectation that we contribute to the body for the glory of God and the good of His people.
Small Groups are an essential part of the Bridge, as they provide a place where deeper fellowship and better support for one another can take place. We use this forum to discuss Godly principles, as well as personal struggles that each one of us encounters. We believe this is the life-blood of the Bridge, as we grow and fellowship together as Christ followers.
