What can I expect at LifeBridge?
We want every person to have a life-giving experience each time they attend. Everyone is invited to “come as they are” to explore the Christian faith at LifeBridge. We will create high energy environments with meaningful opportunities to worship freely. For those who don’t know Jesus yet, we hope to provide a space to meet Him without pressure to fit some kind of religious mold. Our messages will address current, real-life issues with real-life answers from the Bible. We are about building bridges that help people cross over the obstacles in their life to a place of faith, hope, life and freedom in Jesus Christ.
What about my kids?
Bridge Kids is a safe, age-appropriate environment for children ages birth-5th grade. Bridge Babies is for toddlers and younger while the older kids meet in the gym. Some of our biggest fans are the kids who absolutely love BK. Our staff does an amazing job of making the Bible fun and meaningful while providing a high energy atmosphere. If you have kids, you have to bring them to check it out.

What is the Bridge Crew?
Our guests are a high priority at LifeBridge. From the time you walk in the door, you will know that we have been preparing for your arrival. The Bridge Crew is the team who make LifeBridge environments happen each week. If you have any questions or need anything, just look for someone in a Bridge Crew shirt and you will find someone who is happy to assist you in any way.

We have a tech team, a worship band, Guest Services, Bridge Kids check-in specialists, safety personnel, set up team, etc. If you want to get involved and take your place on “The Crew”, please click here to learn more.

What denomination or affiliation is LifeBridge?
LifeBridge is excited to announce that we have partnered with the Wesleyan Church and are a Wesleyan Church plant.
