Here is how it works...

In this “catalog” is a list and brief description of the small groups being offered this fall. Small Groups are exactly that...a group..that's small. Smaller than the HUGE group on Sunday morning. The function of these groups is to help people at The Bridge grow deeper in their relationship with God AND deeper in their relationships with each other. If you've been asking, “How do I get involved here?” or saying things like, “I just don't know anybody,” these are whatcha need. At The Bridge, we offer our groups in 11 week “chunks.” So, you'll sign up for a small group in September, attend this class beginning in October through the middle of December (11 weeks...that's the chunk), and then be off for January. Then we'll start a whole new chunk in February. If you liked your group, sign back up! Want to try something else? That's the time to do it!

How to sign up:
Fill out the form on the back of this page and turn it in at the Welcome Table or in the offering baskets. Your group leader will contact you before your group starts with more details. Sign up is open only for September. Small groups are capped at 15-20 people depending on the group. It's first signed-up first in! If a group you signed up for is closed you will be given a call and a recommendation to a different group. Questions or more info: Kylee Larson: kyleelarson@gmail.com 765.642.4750
