I'M NEWWelcome! We're glad you're here.
Getting to know each other
We know meeting someone for the first time can be intimidating, and going to a new church for the first time can be nerve-racking. We want to help make your first experience at The Bridge a great one!
As you explore our website, you will get an idea who we are and what we’re up to. If you have any questions at all–about The Bridge or what the Christian faith is all about, please feel free to contact us. One of our pastors would be happy to chat with you.
What should I expect?
It’s not always easy to try something new — we get it. That’s why we work hard to make your first time with us as enjoyable and hassle-free as possible. From the time you drive onto the campus until the time you drive away, our parking team, ushers and greeters will help you find your way around and answer any questions you may have.
Watch for a sign as you approach the campus designating special parking for our first and second-time guests, as well as those with special needs such as the elderly, new moms, and people with physical challenges.
How early should I get there?
Plan on arriving 10 minutes before the service starts. That should give you enough time to park, check your kids in to their spaces and grab a cup of coffee before the service begins.
What should I wear?
At The Bridge we are very casual in the way we dress — after all, it is Southern California. It’s very common for the teaching pastor to wear jeans. However, you would never feel out of place wearing shorts and flip flops!
I like The Bridge, what’s next?
If you would like to know more about The Bridge, we suggest you attend a DNA class as your next step. The DNA class is usually two sessions — occurring after service on a Sunday (lunch is included so how could you say no).

What about my kids?
AGE 0-5th GRADE
Early Childhood Center (ECC), Kidzone & BL45T exist not just for childcare. We have designed our times with your child to encourage and disciple them. Our groups are led by staff and volunteers who will be there each week to care for and love on your child. They will hear an age-appropriate teaching, sing fun songs and meet new characters through our drama team.
By the way, we utilize a check-in system that ensures a safe environment for your child and also allows for efficient drop-off and pick-up for parents.
MIDDLE & HIGH SCHOOL
Our Middle School & High School students have a special service just for them. They meet in the Bridge Youth room on our lower campus. Our youth band leads them in worship and our youth pastor or one of our youth leaders teaches from God’s Word in a fun, relevant style.
