About us

We're an independent Christian church that is passionate about BRIDGING people back to God. We want to provide a place where there are opportunities for everyone to grow and thrive for God's glory. Located just south of the Farmers Market in Raleigh, N.C., we look forward to hosting you at Bridge Fellowship Church.    

Service Times and Location

Our church is located at 1900 Al Boat Dr #100, Raleigh, NC 27603
Sundays 10 AM

Parking

When you enter the church parking lot, one of our greeters will direct you to special parking reserved for our guest.  

Where do my kids go?

We have a nursery for kids birth through 5 years of age. We have signs directing you where to go, look for the signs that say Bridge Kids. Plus anyone with an orange name tag can help you. We do ask that you register your kids, so please come a few minutes early. Better yet you can preregister your kids (click here) and save yourself a few minutes on your first Sunday with us.  

Why do I have to register my kids?

We take the safety and security of your children seriously. All of our ministry volunteers have been screened and background checked for safety. By checking your child in and out of our Bridge kids, you can experience the main worship service worry-free.

What should I wear?

Wear whatever you feel comfortable in. You can "dress up" if you want to or wear casual clothes. Most people who call Bridge Fellowship “home” dress causal, but you feel free to dress however you feel most comfortable. God is more interested in your heart than how you’re dressed.

Am I expected to give money?

We never ask our guests to give to our church. In fact we don't even pass a collection tray.

However, we believe that giving financially is an act of worship and that it communicates your trust in the Lord and your commitment to the local church. Therefore, we ask for all our members to give regularly. When you give to Bridge your money goes to:

  • Boldly preaching the Word of God in a safe, dedicated environment
  • Providing age appropriate teaching for our kids
  • Evangelizing our community through outreach events
  • Hiring and compensating church staff
  • Blessing those in financial need
  • Sending out and supporting church planters & missionaries

As our guest, you’re not expected to give any money. That decision is totally up to you. We have been blessed with many opportunities to serve the needs of our community, and through the generosity of our church members, we can meet those needs. You are welcome to join in God’s work at Bridge Fellowship Church as you feel you’re ready.

What’s a Service Like?

Our services typically last about 70 minutes.

The service will begin with about 15 minutes of music led by a live band. The words of the songs will be projected onto large screens. Many people will sing along and you can too. Participate as you feel comfortable. We use music as a way of expressing our love for God and appreciation for what He has done for us.

  • There will likely be a few times that one of the leaders will pray during the service. You might be asked to sit or to stand up during those prayers. We’ll always make sure you know exactly what to do and we won’t leave you guessing.

  • Our pastor will teach a lesson from the Bible. Our goal is to help everyone understand the Bible and to apply it to their lives. The teaching will be practical and challenging, and hopefully will inspire you in your personal pursuit of God.

  • On 2nd Sundays we celebrate communion together. At every service, we’ll have a host who will explain what’s happening during the service so that there are no surprises whatsoever.

  • At the conclusion of our service each Sunday we take an offering of financial gifts. This offering is for those who call Missional Church their home church. As our guest, you’re not expected to give any money. That decision is totally up to you. We have been blessed with many opportunities to serve the needs of our community, and through the generosity of our church members, we can meet those needs. You are welcome to join in God’s work at Missional Church as you feel you’re ready.

Get to know us

One of the things that our church is known for is the practical teaching from our pastor. He has an exceptional gift of taking what may seem like complicated topics in the Bible and explaining them in ways that we can all understand. You can follow the link below to browse our sermon library and see for yourself.

Our ultimate goal is for everyone at Bridge Fellowship Church to feel comfortable and confident in their ability to read and understand the Bible. If you don’t own a Bible, we’d love to give you one. Please stop by Guest Connection and ask for one. You can also download a Bible app to your phone for easy access. Yes, that’s why all the people sitting around you have their phones out during the service. They’re not texting! Well, most of them aren’t. 😉

Will I Have To Identify Myself or Be Called Out?

We want you to feel welcome at Bridge Fellowship Church. But we also want you remain anonymous as you need to as you check things out. You’ll never be asked to stand up, identify yourself, do the hokey-pokey, or anything else that might make you feel uncomfortable.  

About out music (AKA Worship)

Bridge Fellowship Church services start with contemporary Christian music featuring a band with guitars, drums, keyboards. Our gifted musicians and singers will provide a spiritually moving musical foundation for everyone to join in.  It’s all for one purpose—not to experience a band, but Celebrate Jesus through our singing.
