Be the Bridge

Join us on the journey to become bridge builders.

Be the Bridge Focus Group

Tuesdays, 6:30-8:00 p.m.
July 14-September 1

As a church, we are entering into a season of listening so we can empathize with the pain of disunity and seek to become a better representation of our community and Heaven. Based on this, we are launching a new group utilizing curriculum provided by Be the Bridge.

If you would like to be part of this group, you must agree to the following:

  1. Being present at every group meeting. The group will be 8-10 weeks long. This means if you have a vacation planned, you move the vacation, or you plan to join the group virtually from wherever you are. This group will have a virtual component, so even if you aren’t in Asheville you can join.
  2. Do all homework before each group meeting. There will be some reading and reflecting you must do to for this group to be successful. It will make you uncomfortable. You will see things differently. You must do the work.
  3. Listen to all the hard truths you must face. You will not join this group to teach or convince others. You will come with humility to learn, listen, be uncomfortable, and grow.
  4. Pray consistently. You will enter a season of praying for our church daily to experience a deeper empathy leading to changed behavior.

The group will meet Tuesday evenings from 6:30-8:00 p.m. starting on July 14. The group will last 8 weeks, ending on September 1. Depending on the group’s size and the state and county COVID guidelines, we would like this group to meet in person. There will also be a virtual component for those uncomfortable being in a gathering or if you are out of town.

There will be a minimal cost for the curriculum to be determined. There will be no childcare available.
