Connect Groups are the heartbeat of The Bridge United Methodist Church. These small group bible studies are made up of men and women who are looking for a church community that offers conversation, open dialogue, meaningful interaction, and friends to walk with through life's ups and downs. Bible study topics vary by small group so finding the right connect group is easy. Grow your understanding of the Bible and how it applies to your everyday life.
Each group has it's own leader, meeting day/time/place, and rhythms of meeting. Some offer childcare, some offer dessert, some offer both! Because we value relationship, we intentionally keep the group size between 8 and 12 members. When a group "fills up", we will create a new group within a few weeks.
GIRL WASH YOUR FACE
"Have you ever believed that you aren't good enough? That you're not thin enough? That you're unlovable? That you're a bad mom? Have you ever believed that you deserve to be treated badly? That you'll never amount to anything? All lies." Each chapter of Girl, Wash Your Face begins with a specific lie Hollis once believed that left her feeling overwhelmed, unworthy, or ready to give up. As a working mother, a former foster parent, and a woman who has dealt with insecurities about her body and relationships, she speaks with the insight and kindness of a BFF, helping women unpack the limiting mind-sets that destroy their self-confidence and keep them from moving forward.

This course will address such issues as how to please God, develop a stable walk with God, think like a Christian, practice spiritual self-defense, live with a focus, and become a prayer warrior.

NO OTHER GODS
Often, idols are obvious—money, power, fame. But subtler idols can sometimes take the form of sweet loved ones, Instagramable interiors, and busy seasons of ministry.
But if your heart is prioritizing any of those pursuits before God, they are taking up space meant for Him alone.
Stop wasting time on the temporal, false gods, and invest in the eternal, one true God. Recognize the lies behind false gods, and learn to identify the Truth. Dethrone your modern-day idols, and experience the abundant life in Christ.
In this 8-session study, learn to identify the functional gods you are serving daily and the lies they tell. Only when you learn to dethrone modern-day idols can you pursue a deeper, more meaningful relationship with Jesus.
