OFFERINGS TAKEN THIS YEAR:

Each Sunday TWO offerings are taken. The FIRST offering is for the General Fund; money received covers our operational expenses.

The SECOND offering the FIRST Sunday of each month is for the Ministry Center/Building Fund. While the Ministry Center was paid off in 2023, ongoing expenses occur and with increased staff and the potential of additional office and storage space, it’s important to keep looking to the future as we grow and have adequate funds available to expand if needed. While we aren’t actively raising money for the purpose of a future permanent home for Bridge of Hope, building money in this fund, along with equity in the Ministry Center, would someday help fund a permanent location.

 

The SECOND offering for the REMAINDER of the month is for a designated ministry within our community, or one closely tied to our body. Each month a different ministry has been chosen for the second offering. See the 2024 offering schedule here.

The Service Shepherds are also giving the body opportunity to further support Christian Education with a special offering for Christian Education on the LAST Sunday of months with FIVE Sundays. In 2024 that will be March, June, September and December.

CHECK-INS

Enfolding people into the body begins by identifying our guests. Bridge uses a check-in / nametag system for the purpose of knowing who's visiting so that we can begin integrating people into our fellowship.
