After the main service, there is a time to enjoy coffee and snacks and connect with others. At 11:00am various classes begin and you are warmly invited to participate. The lead pastor typically hosts an informal discussion on the sermon after the service, which is ideal for guests or those exploring the faith.
The church is in process of strategizing and dreaming a new dream for its purpose in the community and what God can do through it. With new leadership and fresh vision, it is a great time to visit the church. We are a smaller congregation but full of faith that great things can and are happening.

and Financial Secretary
Heather has been the office manager/financial secretary and member of Bridgeway Church since August of 2012. She attended Valdosta State University in 2004-2006 and then transferred back to Kennesaw State University at the end of 2006 to be closer to family. She met her husband Garry in 2008 and were married at Bridgeway Church in 2010. They have three amazing boys.
The amazing sense of family at Bridgeway Church has kept Sunday mornings exciting. It’s great to hear from our three young children about what they learned and see the crafts they make in their classes. My wife and I found the culture to be infectious service to God, each other and to the community - it isn’t a perfect church, of course there are always opportunities to improve. I think that’s part of what drew us in here; We are thrilled to be a part of what God is doing and to be a part of a growing solution to the needs of each other and His church.
Our vision is to be a church that is doing what God calls the church to do. We did not want to be unique in our vision, and that is why you will see our vision is a combination of the greatest commandment (to love the Lord with all your heart, soul, strength, and mind), the second greatest commandment (to love your neighbor as yourself), and the great commission (to make disciples of all nations). We want each of our members to know, embrace, and embody this vision.
