Scandalous

Jesus may have been the most scandalous man to ever walk the face of this earth. He was hated for his refusal to fit in to social norms. He invoked anger from nearly all political and religious leaders of his time. Large crowds literally chanted his name and a week later screamed in the streets for his death. One crowd tried to force him to be king (John 6:15)  and other tried to force him off a cliff (Luke 4:28-30). There was no hotter topic 2000 years ago and there remains no more controversial name on earth to this day.
Jesus carefully calculated his every move knowing the retribution that would come from the authorities. However, during the last week of his life, the gloves came off. Knowing his time had come, he blatantly opposed the hypocrites, exposed corruption and fulfilled prophecy. Leading up to Easter we are talking about Jesus’ controversial last days on earth.

Here is what you need to know

We know that attending church for the first time can be intimidating. You are just curious and don’t want to stick out.
Here are a few questions we can answer for you right now:

1. Do I have to be a Christian to attend?

No. We are a church for people who don’t go to church. We have purposefully created a safe and open environment for you to get all your questions answered as well as allowing you the opportunity to discover what the Bible says and who Jesus is.

2. Do I need to be a member?

Many people have contacted us, prior to their first visit, to ask if they need to be a member to attend. Not at all, in fact, we don’t have membership. There is nothing you need to do to visit Life Bridge.

3. What should I wear?

We don’t have a dress code and there are no expectations. Well, maybe one….Please, don’t come naked. Most of the people on stage and in the audience dress very casually

4. What about my kids?1470046_872970262748734_1765183293579590594_n

We have an incredible and secure children’s ministry for children Newborn – 5th grade. We promise, they are going to love it! If it is your first weekend with us, you may want to come 10 min early to get them all checked in before the service begins.  After your first visit, children’s check-in is a piece of cake.

5. What about my kids 6th grade and up?

We work hard at engaging everyone 12 to 85 years old during our weekend services. We figure if the students like it then the adults are going to love it! Also, on Sundayevenings, we have an environment just for our teens. Check out our Encounter Student Ministries page for middle school and high school students.

6.How long are the services and what happens?

All of our services are identical and last about an hour. We have a live band and an engaging teaching from the Bible.

7. Will I stick out?

No. We are a growing church and have many visitors each weekend. Again, we know it’s intimidating to be a newbie. We have designed each of our weekend experiences around visitors so that they might feel as comfortable as possible. We are just glad your coming!

Got more questions?

We hope you decide to attend. We think you will find we are a pretty welcoming bunch. Have more questions for us? Shoot us an email hello@242community.com or give us a call 734-309-7870

Grant is our resident farmboy. He grew up in the cornfields of northwest Nebraska. He spent his early days living far from God. As Grant says, "I gave God the middle finger and didn't really care about faith at all." As a young man, he became convinced that God was real. He gave his life to Jesus and experienced God's amazing grace that previously made no sense to him. After experiencing that grace, Grant felt God calling him to teach the message of the gospel. Over the past 20 years, he has been preaching and teaching. Grant, his wife, Bethany, and their four children moved to Michigan in 2011, and he joined the 2|42 team in 2019. Grant is always good for a laugh, but more importantly, he explains biblical concepts in ways anyone can understand.
