What is the bridge of care?
Bridge of Care Ministries exists to come alongside those who are in seasons of sorrow, sickness or setbacks in our church & in our community. Through a variety of care ministries, we can offer a bridge of hope during a time in need… a hope that can only be found through Jesus.
