When: The Third Saturday of Each Month
Upcoming Dates: April 16th, May 21st, June 18th
Where: Under the Overpass Between Meeting and King 4:30 to 6:30 PM
It’s just what it sounds like — a gathering of Christians holding a service underneath an overpass in downtown Charleston. The Bridge Church is a ministry started by our friends at the Cathedral Church of St. Luke & St. Paul in downtown Charleston. Bridge Church is a collaborative ministry of Charleston area churches that seeks to take church outside of the walls of our regular church buildings, to love our neighbors, and to proclaim the Gospel.
On the third Saturday of each month, Holy Cross provides and serves a meal at the Bridge Church. Participants should arrive at 4:30pm to help with set up and serving. The service runs from 5:00 to 6:00 pm (including the meal). If you can, stay and help clean up afterward.
For more information, call Jack Christy 843-991-9952 or visit holycrossministry.net/compassion/local/bridge-church/

What is Family VBS? All the fun of regular VBS, but the whole family is included! Parents and children start and end the evening interacting together and then separate in the middle. Children go to Hero Training Camp with games, activities and crafts, while parents learn simple steps to becoming the primary spiritual trainers of their children. All family members learn through the life of David about the biblical concept of the conscience to help children be internally motivated in four areas: Do what’s right, deal with wrongs, be honest, and care about others.
Parents and/or grandparents are required to accompany children to this Family VBS. All family members are encouraged to attend: Mom, Dad, Grandparents, and children of all ages (preschool – middle school). The cost of $20 per person attending*, with a family maximum of $100, goes to provide food and supplies for the event. *Scholarships are available
