The Bridge Church is committed to demonstrating God’s love by serving in practical ways through a variety of local ministries and agencies. Below are some of the ways we seek to be Jesus in our community.
Reset is a Christ-centered, voluntary program for men and women in the Greater Cincinnati area who desire to radically change their lives. Reset’s program consists of five key components that are essential to helping men and women break the destructive patterns in their lives that lead to addiction, lost opportunities, and incarceration. Those five key components are:
• dignified housing
• employment opportunities
• growth opportunities
• hope for the future
• Biblical truth
You can serve Reset by being a life coach to residents of the program, by providing welcome baskets to the new residents of both the men’s and women’s houses, by assisting with fund-raising projects and more. If you are interested in serving with Reset, or wish to learn more, contact Gary Dawson at 859-240-7779 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Backpack Meals for students at Reiley Elementary
On the 4th Sunday of each month we invite people to bring non-perishable food items to church so we can fill backpacks that are made available to under-resourced children attending Reilly Elementary. While the school provides breakfast and lunch to students through the week, these backpack meals insure that no child go hungry over weekend. To help fill these backpacks, simply pick-up a green bag as you leave church on the 3rd Sunday of the month and return it the following Sunday with items that are listed on the card attached to the bag. To learn more about this ministry contact Jannie Weaver at email@example.com
After School Program
Each Tuesday during the school year from 2:30 – 4:30 PM volunteers from The Bridge provide pizza and mentoring to students involved in the Century 21 STEM Program that takes place just down the street from the church at Campbell County Middle School. For more information contact Chris Mitchell at firstname.lastname@example.org

Alexandria A.C.T.S./ANGEL Program
A.C.T.S stands for Addiction Community Training and Support. Our community has not escaped the heroin epidemic that has hit our nation. In response to this, the Alexandria Police Department and the city of Alexandria have determined to provide education and training for individuals who want to offer assistance to those individuals who want to escape the destructive grip of addiction.
Beginning October 1, 2016, any person who enters the Alexandria Police Department and requests help with their addiction to opiates will be immediately screened into the Angel Program for placement in a local treatment facility. As a police-led and volunteer supported initiative, officers will connect people with substance use disorders to treatment options in the community, while volunteer “Angels” support participants during the intake process.
Moreover, officers will dispose of any drugs or drug equipment in the participant’s possession and not charge them with a crime. Ultimately, the goal is to connect participants to local, state, or out-of-state treatment facilities which provide an appropriate continuum of care based on the participant’s needs.
If you are interested in serving in this program you are invited to attend meetings the 1st Monday of every month at 6 PM at the Annex Building located behind the Alexandria Community Center at 8236 W. Main Street in Alexandria. These meetings provide training and instruction for those who wish to become “Angels” in the Angel Program. To learn more contact police social worker Kelly Pompilio at email@example.com
