messages

At Bridges we value and rely on the Word of God. Therefore, each Sunday we seek to bring a message that is Biblical, focuses on the text of Scripture, and relevant to our daily lives. Ultimately, we want to preach the word in such a way that those who listen with open hearts are "equipped for every good work."


In accordance with current state guidelines, our sermons are all online until public meeting is considered a safe practice.
