Connect Groups

Church is more than a service. Real relationship happens when people get connected and live life together. That's why we have Connect Groups, small groups of people who gather throughout the South Bay to hang out, study God's Word, and do life together! 


Contact a group leader to get connected! 


“And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.” //Hebrews 10:24-25//

  • IPSAT Group

    Often we ask ourselves how we can serve others, but the better question to start with is, "what has God put inside me?" 


    Our IPSAT Group (Identity Profile Self-Awareness Tool) is designed to help you discover, optimize, and unleash your unique internal resources. Come journey with us in discovering how to effectively use our personality, strengths, skills, passions, and spiritual gifts for God's glory! This group will be led by our certified IPSAT coaches Spence Bauer, Jeanie Nishime, and John Riley. 


    Although the IPSAT experience is usually very costly, The Bridge is providing it for you at no monetary cost as part of our commitment to your discipleship journey. Your only cost will be one of the five pre-assessments (Gallop's StrengthsFinder 2.0, $19.99).


    *Starts Sunday, February 17th (seven-week study)*

  • Ladies “The Armor of God” Study

    All day, every day, an invisible war rages around you — unseen, unheard, yet felt throughout every aspect of your life. A devoted, devilish enemy seeks to wreak havoc on everything that matters to you, but his battle plan depends on catching you unaware and unarmed. If you're tired of being pushed around and caught with your guard down, this study is for you. The Enemy always fails miserably when he meets a woman dressed for the occasion. 


    To join our “The Armor of God” study by Priscilla Shirer, email Cathy and buy the study book at HERE before the first meeting.


    *Starts Monday, February 11th (seven-week study)*

    Weekly on Mondays, 7:00pm

  • Bridge Discipleship series: "Spirit, Soul, and body"

    Bridge Discipleship is a great time of in-depth biblical study and sweet fellowship. 


    Starting January 22nd, we are in a six-week study on the "Spirit, Soul, and Body". The Bible distinctly divides each aspect of who God created us to be, and a critical distinction that we will study is the difference between of our own thoughts/ways (soul) and His thoughts/ways (Spirit) that lead us in life.
