Bridging Generations

“When your children ask you what these stones mean to you, tell them …”

Joshua 4:6-7

In the fall of 1919 a group of women began Sunday School classes for families in downtown Russell. Within two years these classes had expanded into a new church.

To continue our core commitments we want to renew, improve, and enhance our space dedicated to children and families. When completed, we will have an enhanced, attractive, and safe area for children, as well as expanded areas for adult fellowship.

This is literally a once-in-a-generation opportunity to expand the mission and ministry of Bridges as we enter our second century.
