Meets each 3rd Tuesday of each month at 7PM in Room 10 

Welcome to all who have questions about sexual identity and Christianity!
 
How are we as individuals and as the Church called to respond? Whether you have personal, general or theological questions, our prayer is that you find helpful information and support through our Bridge of Grace and Truth support group.

Our life's work for each of us is to learn who we are and what Christ would have us do with our lives: searching for where to find love, purpose and safety. How we approach LGBT+ is an important part of that puzzle, no matter what role it plays in our lives.
 
"We were looking for understanding and support from others who have similar
experiences and desires that we have. We found that lifeline at Bridge of Grace and
Truth. We are deeply thankful to God for a group that follows the Bible and supports so
well."
D&KM, Attenders of Faithful Journey Group

We've collected the wide range of resources we look forward to sharing with you. Resources include books, videos and web pages. Books and videos are available at our meetings, online resources are available here.
 
Books and online information can only go so far: it is part of God's plan that we need each other. We've been instructed to bear one another's burdens (Galatians 6:2), and share one another's joys (Philippians 2:17). Bridge of Grace and Truth is a safe place to share our heart's concerns and questions: to offer support and understanding to each other in our journey toward and with Jesus.
 
"Bridge of Grace and Truth has been a blessing to me. I feel I can come as I am and
receive love and acceptance. I have found resources and support to help me on my
journey with Jesus."
MS, Attender of Journey of Hope Group
 
Our group encompasses both LGBT+ and family and friends.  Each meeting we gather together for a time of sharing and prayer as we strive to better know and understand each other, family and friends, and LGBT+.  The balance of our time we meet separately -- Faithful Journey for Family & Friends of LGBT+ and Journey of Hope for LGBT+ -- to better address the individual experiences and challenges we each face. All group meetings and one-on-one conversations are held in confidence. We welcome all who desire to attend.
 
We invite you to reach out to us with any questions or comments. Leader contact info is listed below. 
 
We are looking forward to learning your story and sharing ours, as we journey together!
