The backbone to stronger community is building relationships. But to build relationships, we must overcome our differences, which may include ethnicity, culture, language, socioeconomic, educational, and lifestyles. We must find common interests but also appreciate different interests and the needs of others. We must intentionally invest time and energy together.
We invest our time and energy in building a common consciousness. Bridges hosts Community Breakfast Forums about 6 times a year, often with key community leaders, to foster discussion, education, and sharing of experiences.
Bridges also sponsors several Outreach Programs such as hosting an annual Community Job Fair, and promoting ongoing community events like the Gwinnett Clean & Beautiful Clean-up, the Peachtree Corners Festival, and more.
Partnering with local churches and community groups, Bridges also acts as a Resource Connection so that neighbors can benefit from the service these groups can provide.
Bridges exists to build community and reconciliation, and we also do this by hosting community prayer gatherings to seek the blessing and welfare of our city and our neighbors.
