We are a portable church located in the Southern Bank Auditorium in Raper Hall on the campus of the University of Mount Olive. Beginning as a portable location offers many advantages and it is our goal to one day have a permanent facility in Mount Olive for The Bridge.
We are excited to partner with the University in our launch. The University being a cornerstone of the Mount Olive community will make us easy to find. It also provides an opportunity for us to serve the student body and to offer the students a different worship experience than they may be used to.
We recommend arriving at least 30 minutes early. This will give you plenty of time to get some coffee, check your kids in if you have any and find a seat.
We try to structure parking in a way that allows the maximum amount of people to attend our services. Please follow the team’s instructions when parking. Also, we want to love our neighbors and serve them well, so we ask you not to park in the neighborhoods or retail areas surrounding the church.
You’re invited to come as you are, whether it’s a suit or shorts you feel most comfortable wearing. Our members and attendees tend to dress pretty casual.
We believe that community, fellowship, and growth is a large part of our christian walk. That is why we highly value discipleship in a part of life groups. As a part of life groups you will have the opportunity to share and grow with people just like you. It is a great way to meet new people and to serve in the community. Why? Because we believe that we should be Jesus to our community, so all of our life groups are encouraged to do things like service and mission projects. We offer things like affinity(interest) groups, gender specific groups, groups that focus on addiction and many more.
Bridge Kids is a children’s ministry uniquely designed for your child. With age and development appropriate environments, your child will experience the Word of God in a creative, relevant and fun way. We want your child to know God through our mission of BELONG, COMMIT, GROW and SERVE!
Bridge Kids exists to bring children into age appropriate worship where they can BELONG to the family of God, COMMIT in their relationship with Christ, GROW a firm foundation of understanding of God and His Word, and learn to SERVE!
Bridge Kids is led by a team of staff and volunteers whose passion is children. Our goal is to provide a fun and interactive program tailored just for kids no matter what age and grade to help them know Jesus and grow spiritually as they build meaningful relationships with other children and adults!
Because we are passionate about children learning about Jesus in a way they understand, the Bridge Kids’ environments and lesson materials are based on the physical, mental and emotional needs of each age group: INFANT (birth to 12 months), TODDLER (1-2 year olds), PRESCHOOL (3 -4 year olds) and K-5 (kindergarten-grade 5).
SAFETY FIRST: When you check your child in at the Check In desk, your child will be given a sticker to wear that serves to alert Bridge Kids staff to allergies, medical conditions, and to be matched with the parent sticker you’ll receive when you pick them up for check out.
If for some reason your child were to need you during the service, the number on your sticker will appear on the worship auditorium screen. In that case, you’ll need to leave the worship auditorium immediately and go to The Bridge Kids Check In desk.
Because your child’s safety is so important to us, each volunteer leader has gone through supervised hands-on training and a thorough background check.
On your way home, be sure to ask your child: “Did you have fun?” and “What did you learn today?”
WARNING: Bridge Kids is so much fun and exciting that your child will not want to miss a single week!

We are passionate about worship and our response to the gospel of Jesus Christ. At the bridge we believe that worship is the time where we can express our admiration and show our affection towards God. All of our services have a time set aside to do this.
If you feel called to lead others in worship, have a musical or vocal gift and would like to use your talents, please email one of our worship pastors at:

With of the use of lighting, cameras, state of the art sound equipment and other items we are able to record all of our services and stream them all across the world.
