Before you were born, God already planned your life. God longs for you to discover the life he created you to live -- here on earth, and forever in eternity. 

Join us as we take a 7-week journey to answer some of life's biggest questions:

- Who Am I?
- Where Do I Belong?
- What Is My Purpose?

Live registration has ended. If you would still like to participate in a "What on Earth Am I Here For?" group, please email Ryan Frantz (ryan@thebridgeportage.org) as soon as possible. Thank you!

Here at the Bridge, the start of the fall typically signifies a big re-launch of ministry, with an increased emphasis on discipleship and an increased emphasis on getting church attenders to actively engage – especially through small groups. In the past, we have called those groups “life groups” and, most recently, “house churches.”


In some ways, nothing has changed. This fall, our desire to push discipleship and active participation is as strong as ever. And yet, we know that a simple reboot of our “house church” model would not be our most effective strategy, because: (1) now is not the best time to start new groups of ~ 15 people with kids, and (2) we need something to unite our entire church.


In light of this, we have decided to go after an all-church campaign, centered on the book and the question: “What on Earth Am I Here For?” Here’s what this campaign will include:

  • Beginning the weekend of September 26/27, six consecutive weekend teachings focusing on God’s purposes for every person He has created
  • A “What on Earth Am I Here For?” book for anyone who wants it, with 6 weeks of daily readings
  • An opportunity for everyone to maximize this experience by getting involved with a same-gender, weekly small group of ~ 5 members for the duration of this study

SAVE THE DATE! Most groups will meet for the first time during the week of September 20-26, and the campaign will go through early November.
