Organized in 2007, BridgeWorks is an extension ministry of the United Methodist Church that is directed by the Rev. Rebekah Simon-Peter. Rebekah is an ordained Elder in the Rocky Mountain Conference of the United Methodist Church.
BridgeWorks provides learning opportunities that build bridges of understanding. From events and workshops to pilgrimages, BridgeWorks finds ways to reach out to both church and community. We offer empowerment in the areas of Care of Creation, Embracing Diversity, Jewish Roots of Christianity, Hope and Healing and Leadership and Communication.
