“So if there is any encouragement in Christ, any comfort from love, any participation in the Spirit, any affection and sympathy, complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind. Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.”
Service times & masks
We hold two 90-minute services at 9:00 a.m. and 11:15 a.m.
As of May 30, 2021 masks are optional at both service times.
Families & Bridgeway Kids classes
All children are always welcome to join their families in the auditorium for the regular service. Kids activity packs that coincide with the sermon notes are available each week in the auditorium. Bridgeway Kids classes are available with limited capacity and we hope to return to full capacity as volunteers allow. Check the Kids page for more info on Sunday morning classes.
Two nursing mothers’ rooms are available - Room A2 (nursery area) and Room 28 (west hallway). We will do the best we can to limit the number who make use of these somewhat small spaces at any one time.
We live stream both services (including announcements, worship, and preaching) beginning 10 minutes prior to the start times on YouTube. The livestream videos from both services are immediately available to replay at any time afterward. This is in recognition of the fact that many will stay home until they feel safe venturing out into crowds, but this will not be a permanent practice.
Video and audio of each Sunday service are also available on our website by the following Monday.
Communion & Prayer Ministry
We serve communion by means of self-contained packets of juice and bread. The last 15 minutes of every service are devoted to prayer and prophetic ministry. Our prayer team members wear masks as physical distancing is not possible during personal prayer ministry.
Share love not germs
We do our best to maintain high levels of cleanliness throughout the building, with plentiful supplies of hand sanitizer. The staff and our volunteers make generous use of disinfectant wipes to keep surfaces and other objects as clean as possible. We have modified the way we greet people when they arrive, avoiding physical contact while trying to be as hospitable and welcoming as possible.
We encourage everyone to continue to observe recommended wellness guidelines: Stay home if you are sick, wash your hands regularly, cover your mouth if you cough or sneeze, don’t touch your face, etc.
We urge you to stay home if you have any symptoms of Covid-19 or cold/flu viruses (fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, diarrhea).
Positive COVID-19 cases
If you have attended any Bridgeway event (Sunday Gatherings, Student Ministry, Community Group, etc.) within 48 hours of the onset of symptoms, please call (405)749-8044 or email firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible. Unless you provide us with written authorization to release your identity, we will keep your information confidential and help you to inform anyone with whom you were in close contact.
Please pray for us
Please pray for us, as we also are praying for you! This is a difficult season in our world but also in the church. Pray for the staff and elders of Bridgeway as we navigate new territory day by day. Pray for us to lead with wisdom and humility. We love and care for you deeply and pray earnestly for the physical and spiritual health of the body.
