3 Great Ways To Bless Your Neighbors


For even the Son of Man came not to be served, but to serve...

Mark 10:45

Our Bridge family strives to build relationships and serve the people outside the walls of our building. If you are interested or have questions about any of the opportunities you see, please call (540-712-0770) or email Stacey Burkholder at stacey@bridgechristian.church

1. New  Neighbor  Buckets

If you enjoy meeting people and would be willing to give a new neighbor a free gift from Bridge then this is the ministry for you. We have developed a simple bucket filled with practical things that someone might need when moving into a house. We ask our participants in the New Neighbor Bucket Ministry to pick up a bucket at church, deliver them to families and individuals that move into their community, then pray for opportunities to invite that family to Bridge events. 

2. Mobile  Fun-Zone

The Bridge Mobile Fun Zone is a trailer sponsored by Bridge Christian Church that provides our local community with a party on wheels! The Fun Zone trailer will be filled with all kinds of  fun and exciting items sure to make your next picnic a success! The Fun Zone Trailer would be great for large birthday parties, community block parties, end of season sports celebrations for your little league team, or even a company picnic for your small business. The Trailer can be picked up at Bridge at your convenience. If transportation of the trailer is needed we will work to see if we can help!
Use of the  Fun Zone trailer is free of charge with just a couple of simple requirements listed below!

1. The Fun Zone is designed for community groups both inside and outside the Bridge church family.
2. The Fun Zone is not (sorry) for private family events or birthday parties, but is designed to be used for community groups like the ones listed above. All groups will need to fill out and return a simple application. We will check availability and get back to you ASAP.

Bridging the Gap Between Our Community and Christ

We believe that our opportunity to live for Christ extends well beyond our church doors. Each one of us lives among a community of people, in many ways they are our neighbors. These neighbors include people that live around us, our friends, coworkers, even extended family. God has called each of us to love our neighbors as we love ourselves. We want to help our Bridge family carry out God’s call by sharing helpful ideas and tools to reach out to the people around us. Please read through the Prayer Care Share description below. We would love to speak with you about what this means and how we can be a support.
Begin praying that God would give you an open door to begin building relationships with the neighbors, friends, or coworkers that God has placed right in your midst.
Look for opportunities to care for the people God has placed around you. These opportunities can be as simple as stopping to speak to a neighbor or filling a simple need like a meal for new parents.
As we build relationships with our community we should continue to pray that God would give us an open door to share the lifesaving message of the Gospel, the good news about Jesus Christ.

How do I get started?

Try some of these ideas:
Consider a regular walk through your neighborhood with a goal of making connections.
Pick up a Bridge welcome bucket for a new family that has moved into your neighborhood/area.
Consider a Halloween fun station where families can get hot chocolate and a snack.
Consider hosting a neighborhood block party.
Find the elderly and help with spring or fall cleanups.
Have a snow shoveling plan for single moms or shut-ins.
Take a meal to a family with a new infant.
Invite neighbors to Bridge community-wide events like Harvest Party/Splash Day.
