EWPC MISSION STATEMENT
Our church exists to participate in and share the Good News of Christ's love and redemption with each other and with the community. Therefore we will: Strengthen programs that attract and retain children, youth and adults. Welcoming all persons, while maintaining the reformed tradition. Empower the leadership and membership, through training, education and support to assertively share the Good News with the community. Offer programs, education and fellowship opportunities to prospective and continuing members to promote understanding of the Bible, prayer, and Presbyterian heritage and beliefs. Join together through proclamation of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, prayer and inward reflection in the celebration of divine worship.

This Is For You and It's FREE...
Are you looking for a way to connect with the real God?
Are you looking for Bible study that invites you to use your brain?
Are you looking for a family of faith that will care for you and pray for you?

The Bridge Christian Fellowship may be just what you're looking for. Our worship time is simple, yet up to date. Our Bible study looks beyond those answers that seem "too easy" to consider what the original authors wanted to say to the people of their own day and why. In this way we can get a better handle on what God wants to say to us today. Our prayer time addresses whatever needs we bring. We pray for each other, and we pray for those concerns that are on our hearts.

Feel free to come as you are. Shorts and T-shirts are every bit as welcome as shirts and ties. Feel free to bring kids. We will have childcare available. Come ready to speak up, if you'd like to, as we value each other's thoughts and opinions. Especially bring an open heart, for you'll have a chance to encounter the real God and you'll meet some pretty terrific people as well.

The Bridge meets on Wednesday evenings at 7:00 PM in the main followship room (Purdy Hall) at East Whittier Presbyterian Church. We usually finish around 8:45 PM. The church is located on Second Street between Strub and Michigan. The address is 14061 Second Street. Please call the church office if you have questions. 562-698-9948.

Join Us on Easter Sunday
We will have our Easter Son Rise Service on the front patio at 6:30 am, April 20, 2014. Our youth will provide pancakes, sausages, pastries, fruit, juice and coffee between 8-10:am. Our traditional worship service is at 10:30 am in the sanctuary. All are invited to these events on Easter Sunday morning.

Newspaper Recycling
We are appreciative to all those members and friends who bring their newspapers to our shed in the parking lot. This is an easy way to earn money for our church.

We do have a few gentle reminders: We recycle newspapers only. Not slick magazines (hard to pulp for recycling) paper towel and toilet paper rolls or cereal boxes and other cardboard items and certainly not used tissues.(Please click here for more information)

Do You Know?
Presbyterian Women do an amazing amount of good with the money they generate. We make donations to: Church Women United, Bell Gardens Human Services, Hunger Fund, Lease Coin, Mary Magdalene, Women's and Children's Crisis Center and Cold Weather Shelter.
Our annual pledge to Presbyterian Women in the Presbytery goes to health missions. We buy personal care items for local homeless, flannel cloth for baby blankets that we send to Africa, we make little dresses for African girls and we pay postage to deliver the blankets and dresses. We coordinate the fall drives for Bell Gardens Seniors, school supplies for the Women's and Children's Crisis Center, baby items for Project Angel and sale of Christmas items for Mary Magdalene Project. In addition to all of this we help church women to attend Presbyterian Leadership Training. When you attend an event we sponsor, such as the June 22nd. after-church lunch or buy baked goods at the December Bake Sale, you are helping us to do all of these worthwhile efforts. Thank you for supporting the projects of this church's Presbyterian Women.
