The Bridge Ministries was organized in the summer of 2010 with the mission to share hope in Christ through building relationships and serving those in need throughout the Brazos Valley. Since that time, The Bridge Ministries has served countless families through a weekly food bank, hosted after school programs to mentor and tutor kids in kindergarten through high school, held a weekly bible study each Sunday evening, as well as provided many other programs for the Bryan/College Station community.

Part of One Hope’s vision is to support and promote the ongoing efforts to serve our community. For years now, The Bridge Ministries has been uniting churches to provide for those in need. In addition to meeting practical needs, they have also shared the good news of Jesus with all those who have come through their doors. The Bridge Ministries has been a much needed expression of the Kingdom to so many throughout the Bryan/College Station community. We encourage you to join in what God is already doing in and through The Bridge Ministries.

The Bridge Ministries need volunteers to work as greeters, food sorter/stackers, set-up and tear down, cart wranglers, grocery station managers, children’s area workers, produce prep and boxing, traffic control, parking, grocery loading, prayer warriors, and the list goes on! They want to include as many community members as possible so this becomes a local ministry of the people for the people of Bryan and the surrounding areas.

Weekly Schedule:

Tuesday, 2:30-4:00: Food Stacking

This is when volunteers take the left over items from the week before and put them on their corresponding food shelf. We also take an inventory from the Brazos Valley Food Bank delivery and sort those food items so that we are set-up for Thursday’s Food Pantry.

Thursday, 3:00-4:00: Food Pantry Set-up

We need about 10 volunteers each week to help set-up chairs, tables, divide produce, and put out our food to make the night a little less hectic! This is a huge help, and a shorter opportunity for those who can’t stay all night!

Thursday, 5:00-7:30: Client Choice Food Pantry

Families and individuals are welcome to come and select their groceries for their families! We need 30+ volunteers weekly and we have volunteer positions such as:

  1. pushing the grocery carts and helping sack people’s food as they select it
  2. managing a food station (restock) as people shop
  3. computer input and paperwork volunteer
  4. We offer prayer to each person that comes through the line as we hope to share the love of Christ with everyone who comes in and to let people know they are loved, valued, and significant.

First Tuesday of Every Month (Starting in January 2019), 5:00-7:30 PM: Produce

Pantry

Similar to the Client Choice Food Pantry, this event happens once a month and consists of only fresh produce from the Brazos Valley Food Bank. Clients go home with a cart full of fruits and veggies. Volunteer opportunities are very similar to Thursday nights at the food pantry!

“Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me….Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.” – Matt 25:34-36,40

It is the desire of One Hope to serve the Brazos Valley by seeking to unite the Body of Christ in order to meet the practical needs of the community. In the months ahead, we hope to come alongside and partner with various churches and ministries as they are serving and caring for our community in various ways. Read More
