In John 17, Jesus prays for the unity of His church. In a world torn apart by division, God’s church has an incredible opportunity to be a community of unity, joy, peace, truth, and love. Many of you visiting this site are aware of the possibility of the merger between Bridgeway and Bear Creek Church. What began as a simple discussion about renting space, has developed into the possibility of joining both congregations together into one. Out of the history and ministry of both churches, the potential to be stronger together presents a great opportunity for engaging the Bear Creek area for Christ. If the merger goes through, the new church would be called “The Bridge Church at Bear Creek” aka The Bridge or The Bridge at Bear Creek. The leadership of both churches has given their unanimous consent to moving forward in faith with this merger, and we are prayerfully pursing next steps. On this page you will find the Frequently Asked Questions people typically have surrounding this type of opportunity as well as the timeline highlighting important dates to come. We hope you will be encouraged by what we believe to be a work of God’s Spirit in both our congregations to unite around the mission of Jesus in the world.
