Welcome to The Bridge

Hi, We’re Pastors Fred and Laurie Woodruff. To our right are Pastors Corey and Angie McLaurin and Pastors Jay and Shelly Donaldson. Has anyone ever asked you the question, What’s the most important thing in your life?

If you’d ask me that question, I’d have to tell you that first; it’s my relationship with Jesus Christ. Second, is my relationship with my wife, then my children.

Life’s journeys can take each of us in a lot of different directions. Little decisions that we make everyday can totally change the direction of our lives. That’s why it’s so important to have our relationships right.

Here at "The Bridge Church”, we’ve learned a secret, and that is, it’s not about religion, it’s about relationship.

Jesus said in John 15:12,17: 

"This is my commandment that you love one another, as I have loved you.”

"These things I command you that you love one another.”

In John 13:35, Jesus also said:

"By this shall all men know that you are my disciples, if you have love one for another."

You see, it really is about relationships; First, having a right relationship with Jesus Christ, and second, having a right relationship with those around us.

Here at "The Bridge Church”, we teach and minister what the Bible says about developing and maintaining right relationships so we can live lives that are filled with the love, peace and joy that God intended us to have. Developing those right relationships also prepares us to be ready to meet the Lord when he returns. 

"The Bridge Church” of Freeport IL is a community of believers being built to "celebrate and communicate Christ".

We are a body of believers that strive to meet you at whatever crossroads of life that you are at. You will discover that we are a warm, friendly and caring church family. We communicate a Christ-centered message, our message is simply come and - REFRESH, REFUEL and REFOCUS . Our church family is diverse and multi-cultural. Our worship is sincere, spontaneous and passionate. We love God, celebrate our diversity, enjoy life and love people to God!

If you do not have a home church and are in search of one, please feel free to visit us in the near future. Come see and find out for yourself why "The Bridge Church" is "Freeport's place to celebrate and communicate Christ!”
