This is my family's experience at this church.www.youtube.com/watch?v=tGZgfY2MwKAWe were Very Disappointed with this first time visit to this church. I do hope with this video link that they are willing to understand and change to make others feel more welcome with their visit to this church.
I was involved with The Bridge when it was still at an elementary school auditorium. I was heavily involved with the praise team. Wonderful bunch of folks at the time. The team was younger than me. I guess after they moved in their new facility is when I started to get booted out. The team developed the attitude they were too good for me to be a part anymore. Few of the musicians thought they were rock stars when in reality they wouldn't be able to play music for a living anywhere. So they made it clear I was of no use anymore. I did go through very hard times at home. The wife left with my baby among other things and The Bridge followed suit. Might not be the same experience for everyone but it was the way I was treated by them. Very unfortunate. An experience I try my best to forget. Thankful I'm not there.
My husband, daughter and myself have been attending this church since moving back to Lebanon in October of 2015. We absolutely love it! You couldn't ask for a more loving, caring group of staff at a church. Everyone is welcome! To be such a BIG congregation (that just keeps expanding), the pastor and his staff make it a priority to make sure everyone feels welcome and makes it a family setting! I will pray for the other lady that posted that she was ignored because she's black. When will we quit making everything about race?!! Also, you barely are able to step out of your car before people bombard (in a good way) you and your family to welcome everyone into their church, weather you be new member(s) or have been coming for 10 years! And there's plenty of other races besides "white" who keep coming back and are treated equally! We love this place and Pastor Phil Wilson! We can't wait to be baptized on December 18, 2016! God Bless!
