DID YOU MISS PASTOR LANCE'S BOOK RELEASE CELEBRATION?  

For those of you who made it to Pastor Lance’s book release celebration, thank you for coming! It was an amazing night, and for that, we give God all the glory!

If you were not able to make it, we have it on video for you! Feel free to share the video of the evening with family members, friends, co-workers, or others you feel would be blessed by it.

The evening had two parts -- first was Pastor Lance's message on Thriving Through Fear and the second was a Q&A session. Here are the videos for both:

IMPORTANT MOVE UPDATE  

In recent services, Pastor Brian shared some important updates about our upcoming move. Here are the highlights:

  • Our front desk reception area is no longer in the main staff office area. It is now in the Soul Care Center (in the Lobby). If you come by the church looking for our reception area, that's where you'll need to go.
  • The staff offices have been temporarily set up at our new location (not in the main building where construction is happening) -- they are in the adjacent building which we will use until our permanent offices are ready for us. 
  • We will be vacating the entire Hub building this weekend (April 30/May 1). Bridgeway will no longer be utilizing the building that currently holds the Edge (middle school) room, elementary school classrooms, the Hub chapel, and the staff offices. That means for the month of May all of the ministry that has been happening in two buildings will happen in one building.
  • ALL Kidsway classes will still have space during the weekend services. There will be opportunities for engagement for Edge (middle school) and Fuel (high school) that will be communicated to students and families through those ministries. Vacating the Hub building will save the church a significant amount of money, and it allows us to move all of the furniture from the building down to the new campus. 

With each passing day we are getting closer and closer to moving into our new home! Thank you to all of you for your flexibility, and a HUGE thank you to all of you who have helped with the move thus far!

If you have any questions please feel free to contact Pastor Brian Kiley on The City or email

Likewise, if you would like to have someone you can come to for Biblically based guidance with life’s circumstances, or for help in furthering your spiritual walk, you might consider requesting a mentor.
