Bridge Christian Church Celebrates Anniversary

Thursday, October 3, 2013

Bridge Christian Church in Chattanooga will celebrate its third anniversary with a Birthday Bash at Heritage Park on Sunday, Oct. 13, at 10:30 a.m. 

The outdoor worship gathering will take the place of the normal Sunday gathering held at Westview Elementary School. Everyone is invited to attend, and participants are encouraged to bring blankets and chairs to use during the gathering.  Afterwards, there will be fun activities for the entire family, including an inflatable bounce house, slide and games.  Attendees may bring their own lunch or enjoy dining options that will be within walking distance. 

“We are so excited to celebrate our three-year anniversary at Bridge, and since one of our values is ‘fun,’ we thought a gathering in the park would be a great way to do that!” said Pastor David Sternberg. “We hope those who do not have a community of faith will give Bridge a try at Heritage Park.”

Since its inception in 2010, Bridge Christian Church has been focused on loving and serving the community in many ways.  The church has hosted SHINE, a prom for area residents with special needs, Movies in the Park at Dark summer movie series, block parties and other events.    

Heritage Park is at 1428 Jenkins Road in Chattanooga.

Bridge Christian Church is a non-denominational, independent Christian Church that was founded in 2010.  Gatherings are held at 9 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. every Sunday at Westview Elementary School in the East Brainerd community of Chattanooga.

Their parents made them sleep hot-dog style, tightly wrapped in the same sheet and pressed together to protect ... (click for more)
