Freedom of Belief
Jesus taught his Disciples by breaking bread together, teaching in parables, healing those in need, and proclaiming the Good News. Disciple means “student.” In the Great Commission, Christians are called to teach and make "students" of God's love for all of humanity and Creation. Bible studies and sacred conversations are a means to explore this love. Our diverse opinions and experiences help us to see the broader image of God, Jesus, and the Church. Differences of opinion are seen as opportunities to grow in greater understanding. Join in the conversation.

Praise at the Bridge is a community ministry for those who are new to the Christian faith, have little experience with church, or looking to be involved with a church but do not desire to become a member. You will never be asked to join our church.
Each session, we will introduce a theme in the Bible to help YOU (as parent or guardian) teach your children, or your grown-up family, about God, Jesus, and Service to Others. Each session involves a variety of fun activities to engage our senses and minds so you can discover God in a variety of ways.
We provide a healthy meal and snacks, a story lesson, arts and crafts, music, and prayer. Expect good family fun, tasty homemade food, and gracious fellowship. Volunteers are welcome. Follow us on Facebook (@FCCMineralWells) for more information.
