Our Physical Locations Are Open!

We are excited to announce that all three Bridge locations are open for Sunday services (9a & 11a). We consider it our Phase 1. We have worked hard to make sure The Bridge is a safe place for you and your family whenever you come back. We know it will take many weeks for everyone to return, including our Bridge Kids ministry, but we can't wait to get started.

 

Phase 2 involves opening our Bridge Kids ministry, birth-5th grade. We are aiming for July 12 to begin Phase 2.

 

We also want to remind you that this gathering is just one option that we have available. You and your family can still join us online every weekend - Sat 5p | Sun 9a, 11a until you return. In fact, this holiday weekend, we're offering 11 online times! Visit live.thebridge.church to enjoy one of our online services. Until Bridge Kids opens, we know this option is huge! And even then, we want to ensure that you feel comfortable and only return when you are ready.

Reservations/Tickets

We will have a limited number of seats open during our regular service times. We have removed many chairs from our auditoriums and spread out the remaining chairs to ensure social distancing.

We are asking you to preregister for the service and location you want to attend in order to control crowd size.

  • Reservations will be available each week, first to those on our mailing list, and then to the general public. You will reserve a seat for each person in your household.

    • Ticket links will be emailed to everyone on our email list each Tuesday.

    • Remaining tickets will be available on our website each Wednesday.

  • Click the "Reserve Your Seat" button in your email or on the website to reserve seats today.

  • You will not need to bring a ticket with you. We will have all the reserved names and check you in as you arrive.

  • You will need to agree to our COVID-19 waiver every week you attend. It's an online waiver and the link will be sent to you after you reserve your seats. You can also fill out in person if needed.

  • If you show up without reserving a seat in advance, we will do our best to accommodate you, but due to social distancing guidelines there is a good chance that we will not have additional seats available.

  • If you don't already receive our regular Bridge email updates, please email your name and email address to info@thebridge.church.

Safety

  • Please do not arrive at church until 15 minutes before your service.

  • Please maintain six feet of social distancing as you move around the location where you will worship. 

  • Masks or face coverings will be required throughout your time in our building. This is for your safety and the safety of those around you. If you do not have a mask, we will have some available for you.

  • We will have hand sanitizer available as you enter your location and encourage everyone to wash and/or sanitize hands upon arrival. We encourage everyone to bring your own hand sanitizer as well to use as needed throughout the morning and to help us maximize our supply.

  • You will be guided to a seat as you arrive.

  • We will have a team that will be helping with sanitizing each space that has had traffic at all locations during and after services.  We will wipe down all armrests, tables, chairs, door knobs/handles/crash bars, all equipment, bathrooms, etc.

  • We will have additional air cleaners in our auditoriums, known as air scrubbers. These are used in hospitals and clean rooms around the country.

  • There will be no bulletins, connect cards or offering plates passed during our services. We encourage you to use the Bridge app to check-in and find sermon notes. You can give online or in offering baskets located at the auditorium exits at each campus. 

  • There will be no communion, baptisms, or prayer teams at this point. We will continue to evaluate and adjust as the situation progresses.

  • We will exit by rows after the service to make sure we don't pile up in the aisles.

  • There will be no coffee or food items available.

  • Drinking fountains will be closed and unavailable.

Bridge Kids

  • Bridge Kids will remain closed at least through July 5. We hope to open July 12.

  • Ages 6 and under will not be allowed in the building at least through July 5. This is for the safety of the children, and all attendees, as little kids love to run and touch things.

  • Ages 7 and over will be allowed in the auditorium with their parents. Please reserve them a seat.

 

 

All plans are subject to change as the situation continues to develop. If you have any questions, or concerns, please email us at info@thebridge.church.
