Pastoral Care — Emergency Contact Information
At The Bridge, we feel that it is important that the church responds during times of crisis.
We seek to embody Paul's words from The Bible, 'bear one another's burdens," by being available when a need arises. We never know when crises are going to happen.
During office hours (9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Monday - Thursday) call the church office at 269-323-9444.
There is a pastoral care phone that can be called during hours when the church office is closed. You may experience the dying or death of a loved one, an accident or an illness that requires hospitalization. You may be in a situation where you are urgently requesting prayer. If any of these is the case, feel free to call 269-254-3659.
A member of our Care Team will answer or return your call shortly.

The Bridge continues to remain passionate about not being an inward focused ministry.  We desire to have our church body make their presence know as disciples of Jesus in the communities outside of these four-walls. With that “outward” focus comes the need to have a limited Facility staff and an increased Discipleship staff. With a limited Facility staff, The Bridge is unable to loan out/rent out our facility at this time. We want to be intentional stewards and use the gifts God has blessed us with to continue His mission in the ways that His Spirit continues to lead us.  
We will always believe that the church is a body of people and our facility is not a “membership only club.” When the it aligns with our ministry focus and budget, our facility will always be a welcome place for the community around us to rent spaces here for their personal/ group needs. If you have any questions, please feel free to email our office team at
