Our Cloud & Bridge Community is about Bridging Uncommon Love with Common Life. Common life is what we share with all people. Uncommon Love is what God has for all people. Jesus is where those two realities meet.
Behind Cloud and Bridge is the vision: Bridging Uncommon Love with Common Life. We humans know that we all participate in deep brokenness, restless hearts looking for peace, fragmented community, and an —intuitively perceived— divide between us and the divine. Many of us strive to grow out of this, but we keep coming back to the same place we started.
Yet, the Christian faith is counter intuitive, or at least it should be. It’s not about us striving, formulating, or constructing, but us simply hearing good news amid our brokenness, and that good news has a name, Jesus. He is the peace that finds us, he is the love that pieces together the broken relationships, and he is the bridge between God and us. We believe that this creates space for an eclectic community to thrive.
Cloud and Bridge is a ministry of Heights Cumberland Presbyterian Church and is seeking to explore and live out this reality of God’s love for us, in Christ.
Saturdays @ 4PM
In the Gym at Heights Cumberland Presbyterian

Our weekly gatherings consist of a laid-back liturgy. Liturgy has some religious undertones, but that’s okay. It simply means we express the different aspects of human life lived before a God who is love. This involves awe, honesty, learning, and humility. This takes the form of music, silence, poetic prayers, Biblical teaching, and the ancient act of communion. This is mixed together with a twist of obscure cultural references and occasional irreverent humor.
Justin Richter is the pastor who casts vision through teaching and servant leadership. He studied at Reformed Theological Seminary in Orlando. Has one wife, three kids, three cats. He is allergic to bee stings.
Daniel Ignacio Headley Perches engineers our weekly liturgy and works with musicians, among other things. He studied at Denver Seminary. He has one wife, two kids, a dog. He likes spreadsheets.
We meet on the North Side of the Building in the Gym. So the best place to park is off Academy Rd. or the on Westside right off Moon St. Regardless of where you park, it isn’t a far walk to our meeting space.
We really don’t care as long as you are dressed in something. Most people come casual.
We have a nursery for 3 years on down. 4+ years are in the first part of the service which is primarily music. About halfway through during our “Community Life” time, you have option to send them for a teaching and activity time. For more details go to Kids Ministry Page.

A Listening Ear
We want to hear from you. We want to get to know you, and we want you to feel welcome, whoever you are, wherever you come from, wherever you’ve been. If you are just exploring what it means to have faith in Christ, this is safe place for you to do that. Seriously no judgement.
We care about you. We know that everyone is broken and everyone needs God. We believe Jesus is the answer for humanity, to find peace with God. Let’s learn together about what it means to be a Jesus like community.
We believe that Jesus is good news for people, everyone, no exceptions. We also believe that good news effects the way we think and act. We seek to challenge each other to live for something greater than themselves, namely glory of God.
