In 2019, Jenn and Rick Legacy’s hearts were captured by the town of Indian Head. As military retirees, they frequented the Branch Clinic at the Naval Support Facility and were drawn to the hometown charm, but they also began to see the needs within the community. On a sunny Saturday afternoon, God spoke to them. “This is it – right here in this town, this is where you plant my church.“
However, soon after they felt the call to plant a church in Indian Head, the COVID-19 pandemic shut down most of the country. During a pandemic that has closed the doors of many churches,
BRIDGE Church launched in September 2020.
Making An Impact
The calling was clear: show the people of Indian Head they are seen, known, and loved by God. We embraced the opportunity to partner with many organizations across the Town of Indian Head, including:
- Participating in dozens of events with the Town of Indian Head
- Established a partnership with the CBIRF and Navy Command Chaplain to support the local military population
- Serving on the Indian Head Grocery Council, which is committed to bringing an employee-owned community grocery store to our federally designated food desert
- Supported the town through other established community partnerships, including establishing a local pastors council so churches can work together to support our community.
Continuing to Serve
We have met those needs by investing missions money into local efforts – equipping students and teachers at Indian Head Elementary School, providing food for families in need across our area, investing in Oasis Food Market and volunteering for Charles County Cares Food Distribution.
