When we think about a meal that Jesus shared, we often think about the Last Supper. For centuries, we have preserved this meal in communion services that recall Christ’s sacrifice and commandment to “do this in the remembrance of me.” It is a regular part of the life of the Church and is central to Christianity. However, when we read the Gospels, we find Jesus’ ministry overflowing with feasts, dinner parties, and breakfast on the beach. He ate with religious leaders and sex workers, wedding guests, grumblers and crowds of thousands… all the time teaching us that any meal, no matter how simple, is sacred.
That’s why The Bridge is built around sharing meals with one another. Whether it’s lunch at Kairos or Cava, appetizers before Tuesday Trivia, or a Christmas cookie swap, we believe that any meal shared between friends is an opportunity to grow closer to one another and to Christ.
If you are a young adult who has been looking for Christian community (or just a group of friends) I hope you will make your way to The Bridge. You are always welcome at our table!
