FAQS

IS ADDING MORE GATHERING TIMES AN ALTERNATIVE TO BUILDING MORE SPACE?

We are currently at our max of four gathering times on Sunday. We have lots of experience with various gathering times over the years. Adding gathering times has proven to be a useful short term solution to growth, but cannot solve the growth that happens at the most desirable mid-morning gathering times.

WHEN DO WE HOPE TO BREAK GROUND ON THE KIDS BUILDING?

We desire to break ground in January 2020. However, this is determined by the amount given in the initial Care Offering on Sept. 15th, and the amount pledged in the three year Care Commitments leading up to January 2020.

WHAT IF WE RAISE MORE OR LESS THAN OUR GOAL?

If God provides more than the goal, we would not need additional financing for the Phase 2 project. If we fall short of our fundraising goal, we will prioritize the Kids Building and delay the retrofitting for the secondary Worship Venue and Staff Offices until funds become available.

WHEN DO I MAKE A FINANCIAL COMMITMENT?

After the Care Campaign Teaching Series, there will be a church-wide “Commitment Sunday” on September 15th. On Commitment Sunday, we will bring our Care Commitment Card that has two components: An initial Care Offering (a one time amount you give upfront) and your three year Care Commitment.

IS MY 3 YEAR CARE COMMITMENT IN ADDITION TO REGULAR GIVING TO THE BRIDGE BIBLE CHURCH?

Yes. Your regular tithe and offerings support the vision and general operations of The Bridge. Your Care Commitment and fulfillment goes directly to the Care Campus Campaign projects and construction costs.

I HAVE QUESTIONS ON THE FINANCIAL ASPECTS OF THE PHASE 2 PROJECT:

We will be having a break out portion at our CARE VISION GATHERINGS to address all financial  aspects of the Phase 2. These details will include cost breakdowns, Care Campaign financial scenarios, and The Bridge’s Debt Strategy. Please plan on attending one of our 4 midweek Care Vision Gatherings if you’d like specific questions answered (Aug 26, 27. Sept 4th, 5th).

SO HOW CAN I BE INVOLVED?

We are asking everyone to be involved in three ways:

  • Participate in the meetings, conversations and excitement throughout the campaign.
  • Prayerfully consider what level of Radical Generosity God is calling you to contribute to this campaign.
  • Pray that God will fulfill HIS vision for The Bridge as we take the next step in seeing our neighborhoods full of families centered on Jesus and actively living out the Gospel together.
