The Latest COVID-19 Updates
In the last several weeks, we have monitored guidelines and best practices for gathering in a safe way. After a significant amount of prayer and preparation, we will resume services at Bridge Church on June 14th. We’re committed to creating an environment that meets government recommendations for safety.
We’re excited to open our Bridge Kids ministry on June 14th. Like our redesigned weekend services, we’re taking additional steps to keep our Bridge Kids environments safe (and fun) for your family!
With careful planning, we’re excited to open our Bridge Kids ministry on June 14th! Like our redesigned Sunday services, we’re taking additional steps to keep our Bridge Kids environments safe (and fun) for your family.
- We’ve increased hygiene and cleaning protocols in our Bridge Kids spaces during and between services.
- Additional hand-sanitizing stations will be available in Bridge Kids check-in and hallway area.
- All toys and hard surfaces will be sanitized at every service.
- Separate toys will be used for each service.
When you arrive, be ready for a redesigned check-in process to help support a safe environment.
- Every staff member, volunteer, and child in Bridge Kids will have their temperature taken before checking in to Bridge Kids. We aren’t able to check in anyone with a temperature of 100.4 or higher.
- We encourage you to only send one parent into Bridge Kids for drop-off and pick-up to help limit traffic in the hallways.
- Be sure to use hand sanitizer or wash your hands before entering Bridge Kids. Encourage your child to do the same.
We’ll all need to work together to help keep Bridge Kids safe, so please stay home and participate in Bridge Kids Online if your child:
- Has had a fever in the past 14 days.
- Shows any symptoms of COVID-19.
- Has been around anyone who has tested positive for COVID-19.
Let’s Work Together to Stay Healthy
What We’re Doing:
- Additional hand-sanitizing stations will be placed throughout the building.
- No water fountains will be open or usable.
- No offering buckets will be passed. Instead, there will be a box near the lobby entrance for guests who want to give.
How You Can Help:
- If you don’t feel well or have health concerns, please stay home and join us at Bridge Church Online during the 9:45AM service.
- Please wash your hands and use hand sanitizer often.

- Reflect Christ. In these anxious days, the church (all of us) can shine as a light of hope, care, faith, patience, and prudence. We can demonstrate to the world how our faith provides true assurance against worry and fear.
- Practice recommended personal hygiene. Wash your hands frequently and stay home if you are sick.
ACCORDING TO THE CDC, HERE ARE SOME STEPS WE CAN ALL TAKE
- If you are high risk, such as older adults and those with underlying chronic medical conditions, avoid crowds as much as possible.
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
- Stay home when you are sick.
- Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
- Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.

While we exercise wisdom in keeping ourselves and our loved ones safe, we know that divine health and protection is from Jesus. Let’s continue to trust in His promises of protection in Psalm 91 for ourselves, our families, and all those who are affected by illness and pray that the virus will be contained and conquered.
Because you have made the Lord, who is my refuge, even the Most High, your dwelling place, no evil shall befall you, nor shall any plague come near your dwelling.
